The South American country of Uruguay is known for its popular dance, the Tango. At this year’s 2017, La Flor Dominicana draws inspiration from both the country and its dance as it will unveil its signature release for the year, La Volcada. One of the steps that is a part of the Tango is known as “La Volcada”.
The cigar itself will be a single-blend release in the form of a 7 x 48 Churchill. The blend consists of a San Andres wrapper, Ecuadorian Corojo wrapper, and Dominican fillers grown at the company’s La Canela farms.
Company owner Litto Gomez was born in Spain, but grew up in Uruguay. Last year, he paid homage to his birth country of Spain with the La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull. It’s also not the first time the Tango has been referenced in a La Flor Dominicana cigar. In 2015, the company released the La Flor Dominicana 1994 Tango – a line extension to its 1994 line.
At a glance, here is a look at the La Flor Dominicana La Volcada:
Wrapper: San Andres Mexican

Country of Origin: Dominican Republic (Tabacalera La Flor)
