DESCRIPTION: The Cameroon Cabinet, which debuted in 2007, sports a classy band, and comes in six different sizes. The cigar consists of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobacco held together by a Dominican binder and then enveloped in a great-looking Cameroon wrapper.
When creating the current iteration of the Cameroon Cabinets, Litto Gomez wanted to reflect the La Flor Dominicana of today, which meant that he wanted a full-bodied blend. You can think of the La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet as a Cameroon stogie on steroids.
The cigar comes in six sizes including a quite rare Lancero. But perhaps the most sought-after shape and size is the one I’m featuring today. By popular demand, in December of 2011, La Flor Dominicana released the Cameroon Cabinet in its own quintessential vitola, the 6-inch by 52 ring gauge Chisel.
