La Flor Dominicana Digger Challenge Winner

lfd-digger-challangeLa Flor Dominicana is known for making some strong cigars. Their Double Ligero cigar does not take exception. They are made up of estate grown Dominican filler and binder and wrapped in dark Ecuadorian Sumatra, sun grown leaves. The largest in this line is the Digger and measures 8 1/2 inches long with a 60 ring gauge and packs a punch, hence the Digger Challenge was born.

In short, a number of brave Mission Pipe Shop cigar smokers challenged the clock to see who could smoke an entire Digger cigar the fastest. Well… we are happy to announce that our very own Yaron came in with a winning time of 36.5 minutes. To the best of our knowledge this is the fastest time ever recorded and was confirmed by speaking with Litto Gomez from LFD. Not only did this earn Yaron a box of LFD cigars but he also has bragging rights with the best time ever for the Digger Challenge. Congrats Yaron!
