It means night in Latin and the theme is dark. Dark everything.
La Flor Dominicana’s main trade show release, La Nox, is dark and different.
“I think the cigar is very unique,” said Tony Gomez of La Flor Dominicana to halfwheel. “It’s very different from everything we’ve done and it’s gotten away from the big ring gauges.”
The La Flor Dominicana La Nox is 6 1/2 x 50 toro extra. Gomez says the company is using the darkest Brazilian wrappers the company had over a Mexican San Andrés binder and Dominican fillers from the company’s La Canela farms including piloto and pelo de oro tobaccos.
According to Gomez, La Nox is medium-full, but smooth—and of course dark.
Gomez said it will be limited in production although made on a continuous basis.

The Fume D’Amour which translates into “Smoker Love”
“Illusione introduces Fume D’Amour. Nearly 3 years since our last full brand was brought to the industry, Fume D’Amour is added to the Illusione ‘core lines.’ These cigars deliver the signature olfactory sweetness from Viso Jalapa tobaccos, with the complex mix of spices both in the nose and on the palate from Seco leaves from Esteli. Fume D’Amour is a full-bodied production for the matured cigar enthusiast. "
San Cristobal Revelation cigars come by way of the My Father Cigars factory in Estelí, Nicaragua.
