Litto Gomez Small Batch No. 3 (6.75 x 52)

Wrapper: Dominican Sumatra

Binder: Dominican

Filler: Dominican

Price: $19 (At release)

Rating: 9.6/10

Cigars Smoked: 1

This cigar has a gorgeous wrapper and the draw is perfect.   

The first third starts off with dark, leathery flavors.  There is a subtle spice, but the flavor profile remains quite smooth.   The aroma is sweet, and I almost taste raisins.  A small crack starts to develop during this third, limiting the draw.  The cigar almost goes out, but the burn line catches up to the trouble spot so things return to normal.  The flavors change to heavy leather notes with slight cedar undertones.  As I near the end of this third I swear I can taste fresh baked snickerdoodle cookies. 

 

The second third begins with a nutty- leathery profile that is dark and meaty.  Partially through a subtle cinnamon and graham cracker taste joins the ranks. 

 

The flavors do not change in the final third.  The cocoa and leather profile continues with hints of cinnamon and cocoa.  I let it go out about halfway through this third.  Final smoking time was roughly two and a half hours.

 

Overall, this is a fantastic cigar; I just wish it was more readily available.  I highly recommend picking up the current release (Small Batch No. 5) if you can find them, 9.6/10.

Nice review. Sounds tasty, but $19 is a little pricey for me. I assume because of it's limited-ness

It is pricey for sure and definitely not an everyday smoke. But for special occasions or the like it cannot be beat. Way better than an Opus, at least for my flavor profile.

I had one last month, my first. It's a phenomenal cigar. Sultry, satin finish. I'm with you on the flavors, I was surprised how sweet it it became. It's not a big cigar by any means, but it burns clean, cool and smooth. I know I smoked mine for over two hours too. I found mine at a very small retail store that I'll be raiding the next time I am in the area. It was, hands down, the best cigar I had ever had.
