Celebrating the 25 years of the Gomez family involvement in the cigar industry, the La Flor Dominicana 25th Anniversary is a 7×52 Churchill that was launched in 2019. Coincidentally, 2021 also happens to be the 25th Anniversary for L.F.D. ! It consists of an Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper surrounding Dominican fillers & binder that are both grown on the Gomez farms. This is a cigar best savoured over the course of a few hours.

Chris also recommends that you try the Legend Series Aurora Borealis. This is a very close replica of the famed Dunhill Night Cap and tells a flavour that is full-on story about Latakia.

Aaron recommends that you try one of the Brigham Northern Lights pipes. This line is composed of the classic shapes in the Klondike, Heritage, & Acadian lines but with stems made from coloured acrylic that is reminiscent of the Northern Lights. This makes for some very stylish smoking pipes at a very reasonable price.

He also suggest that every cigar smoker should try one of the My Father MF The Judge. Cloaked in a gorgeous dark brown Sumatra Oscuro wrapper, this cigar contains Corojo and Criollo binders around Nicaraguan fillers grown on the Garcia farms. This results in a full bodied cigar with a nice subtle sweetness.

Solitude is a dark, rich, & smooth Cavendish tobacco that also has some medium-sweetness. This is a blend perfect for the cooling temperatures and is sure to put you in a serene & contemplative mood.

The Romeo y Julieta No. 2 Tubos is not only one of the most popular Cuban cigars we carry, but one of the most popular cigars overall. This is a milder Cuban corona that is good for both novice & more experienced cigar smokers.

Anna

For the cigar aficionado that enjoys a milder cigar, Anna recommends that you try an Ashton Classic Magnum or Churchill. With a Connecticut Shade wrapper, flawless construction, and a smooth rich taste, this is an exceptional higher-end Dominican cigar that is sure to please.

For the pipe smokers out there, Anna thinks you should all try the Legend Series Heritage Blend. The Legend Series are blends done in homage to some of the classic Dunhill tinned tobaccos that are no longer available in Canada. The Heritage Blend is blended to be very reminiscent of one of the all time Dunhill classics in My Mixture 965.

For the R.Y.O. crowd, try some of the Banda Sea. This is a spicy, sweet, and oh-so-tasty blend that is the closest thing one can find to a Kretek in Canada!
