Founded in 2013, Dominican Big Leaguer Cigars founder Francisco Almonte was introduced to tobacco by his father, a master roller for Arturo Fuente Cigar Factory.  The factory is located in Tamboril, a small town where its main activity is the manufacturing of cigars; it is believed that most of the cigar rollers in the Dominican Republic come from this town.

 Why Dominican Big Leaguer?  Imagine having a cigar created by a man who was taught and heavily influenced by two of the most famous cigar makers, Mr. Carlos Fuente (A. Fuente Cigars) and Mr. Litto Gomez (La Flor Dominican Cigars).  It’s that simple.Dominican Big Leaguer Cigars Passion, Love and Experience!Dominican Big Leaguer Cigars Passion, Love and Experience!ou a passionate guy able to produce a Dominican Big Leaguer Cigar.ou a passionate guy able to produce a Dominican Big Leaguer Cigar.

This cigar had a chocolate wrapper with a slight oily sheen and a heavy pre-light aroma that smelled like sweet hay.  An effortless draw produced a lot of smoke.  There was just a slight resistance, allowing a nice introduction to creamy smoke.  Spices developed on the palate as well as through the nose.

 It is a medium bodied cigar packed with great flavor.  Its sweet aroma was very rich, consistent and alluring – it is what really makes this cigar stand out.  The Dominican Big Leaguer is not only an extremely well made cigar, but it will leave a lasting impression with any cigar smoker.
