BACKGROUND: The chisel shape has been used on many different cigars in the La Flor portfolio throughout the years. In 2013, La Flor released a limited edition cigar called, Chapter One, a strong blend created by Tony Gomez, son of brand owner Litto. The cigar utilized La Flor Dominicana’s signature cap, the Chisel and contained tobaccos from Brazil, the Dominican Republic and U.S.
Tony returned in 2014 to release the Capitulo II, another limited edition release. The name Capitulo II is Spanish for “Chapter Two,” a moniker that purposely avoided confusion with the Casa Miranda Chapter Two. The Capitulo II cigar is a box-pressed chisel cigar that is sold in 10-count boxes and comes at a MSRP of $107.00/ box or $10.70 per stick. The blend uses Nicaraguan Colorado leaf for the wrapper, Ecuadorian Habano for the binder, and Dominican tobaccos in the filler.
This week’s featured stogie presents the 6 1/2″ by 58 ring gauge Capitulo II Chisel.
