On this week’s episode of The Cigar Authority we fired up the La Flor Dominicana Golden Oro Anniversary, as we were joined by Stephen Poirier, the local LFD sales representative. During the course of the show, VP of Sales Jonathan Carney joined us in the chat room where he shared a picture of the box of this $24 cigar.
Upon seeing the box, we had to ask what was up as it had the appearance of being created in MS-Paint. Turns out we weren’t so far off.
The story behind the box art has Litto Gomez the owner of La Flor Dominicana reaching out to his son, Tony Gomez for an idea of what he wanted to do with box top. Tony responded with an example using the WhatsApp application on his iPhone and sent it to Litto.
In turn Litto used that exact drawing as the box top adding little silhouettes of Litto to the design. The result is quite comical, and we applaud Litto Gomez for his sense of humor.
The La Flor Dominicana Golden Oro Anniversary, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the TAA is set to be released this summer.
