La Flor Dominicana is releasing its third “Special Football Edition” cigar. The La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2017 is heading as a regional release to the State of Texas – and once again it showcases the artesian work coming out of Tabacalera La Flor.
Texas was chosen to receive the La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2017 because the city of Houston is home to the NFL’s Championship Game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. Special Football Edition in 2015 and 2016 releases went to Arizona and California respectively – who also hosted NFL Championship games.
The cigar is a unique 6 1/2 x 52 x 60 artesian-style figurado. The most unique feature of this cigar is the angled footer with an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade trim. Like its predecessors, the La Flor Dominicana Special Football Edition 2017 features a cut off design of a Fooball made out of a Connecticut Shade wrapper. Finally, the torpedo cap is also finished with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.
The blend itself consists of an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Dominican binder and filler. A Total of 1,500 boxes of ten have been produced.
