It seems like it’s been years since the last Small Batch release but it’s now here, the Litto Gomez Diez Small Batch No. 3! The first two Small Batch releases were some of the strongest and most flavorful cigars I have ever smoked. Litto Gomez does small batch cigars very well, so I was very eager to try this one!
This cigar has a beautifully oily sheen to it (thanks to selenium I hear). The wrapper is dark brown with reddish hues. It looks and feels like a leather cigar!
Guess what. It tastes like one too. :) The first few puffs are rich with leather and coffee, with a hint of cedar on the finish.
I can tell this will be a strong cigar, but maybe not one that gives you a brain hemorrhage. Absent is that strong pepper quality in the first two releases. I can tell this cigar is going to be more refined than its predecessors.
The wrapper is super thick and burns very slowly, and with each puff I pick up different nuances. There is some anise and chocolate that show up every now and then.
The smoke is so thick I can chew on it, the flavors coat the inside of my mouth leaving me yearning for the next puff.
There is not a harsh moment, the slow burn keeps the tobacco relatively cool, delivering puff after puff of leathery goodness.
The last third is decadent – a mocha, heavy on the espresso with some licorice notes on the finish. I loved every minute of it!
I had high hopes, and this special release did not disappoint. Another winner from La Flor and Litto!
