With its black, wedge-shaped head, nothing in the cigar world looks quite like a Chisel Maduro. Its creation goes back to one day when La Flor’s Litto Gomez was driving from Santiago to La Canela in the Dominican Republic, chewing on a torpedo as he was deep in thought. By the time he reached his destination, the torpedo head had been flattened. Taken with the new shape, Gomez came up with the Chisel, a figurado with a head that looks like a hand tool or a woodwind instrument. The natural version is powerful, but this 6-inch x 54- ring leathery Maduro is sneaky strong—you don’t feel the power until it’s upon you. It’s a difficult shape to roll, this brainchild of Gomez, who is clearly one of the cigar world’s most innovative minds.
The La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel is one of the most unique cigars on the market. Its wrapper gleams with oil, the filler is loaded with strong tobacco and the head is shaped like a wedge. Odd as it may seem at first, the wedge shape fits quite comfortably in the mouth. The words “Double Ligero” are as much a warning as they are a descriptor.
