Back in the sixties and seventies, Candela wrappers were the most popular capas in the US. By the time the boom hit, American tastes moved to deeper, bolder flavors, and Candela's popularity faded. But in the hands of a master blender like Litto Gomez, this pale green leaf takes on new life in a cigar that will make you wonder why people moved away from Candela - La Flor Dominicana Double Claro.
These cigars are clad in an olive green capa, which conceals a Nicaraguan binder and Dominican long-fillers specially chosen to not overwhelm the more delicate flavor of the wrapper. These medium-bodied gems will greet you with a grassy, herbal, note up front, with a nutty undercurrent and hints of coffee and mellow spices. When you want a smoother cigar that's anything but boring, give La Flor Dominicana Double Claro a try.
