Cigar Aficionado reveals this day that LFD is bestowing the opportunity for you to bid on a King Tut sarcophagus with their 2016 cigar of the year entombed inside: The Andalusian Bull.
I reviewed this cigar back in 2016 and I gave it a well deserved 86. You can read my review here.
Here is the scoop…
The new version of The Bull is merely a 6.25 x 42 Lonsdale…instead of the 6.5 x 64 Figurado released in 2016.
And it is now called The Golden Bull.
This story is now veering towards the act of Moses fleeing with the Israelites from Egypt.
Will there be 15 Commandments that Litto Gomez receives atop Mt. Sinai? And then drops one stone tablet reducing it to 10 Commandments?
I read the article over and over in Cigar Aficionado and there is virtually no information about the actual cigar blend. (See my update at bottom of page).
Here is the good part…
You can never buy a Golden Bull unless you are so neck deep in discretionary cash that you can afford a ride on an Elon Musk rocket.
In order to get the cigars, and the golden Ark of the Covenant humidor, you must be one of 7 lucky winners of an auction of a Golden Bull NFT (non-fungible token).
There is no prediction of how much one must bid to attain the magic NFT…which allows you to buy up to 70 Golden Bulls per month. The article does not disclose the cost of each cigar…but if you have to ask…
According to CA:
“The original seven buyers will receive a 50-count Gold Bullion Humidor, loaded with 50 Golden Bulls. A larger version of this humidor, filled with 100 of those cigars, sold for $32,000 at the ProCigar charity auction. Company co-owner Litto Gomez told Cigar Aficionado that was the only time the Golden Bull cigar has been sold.”
The auction takes place this coming July.
In order to get all the dope on this great thing LFD is doing for its customers…well, at least the wealthy 1% who have suffered terribly…forced to sell a few of their Lamborghinis and Ferraris, Cigar Aficionado has the complete story.
The CA article does not say where the winners’ money goes. Does it get pocketed by LFD? Does it go to a charity? Don’t know.
I do believe that LFD’s timing is perfect. A little bit of fun while we endure record high inflation, out of control gas prices, high food prices, unemployment galore, and the start of WWIII.
God bless La Flor Dominicana.
NOTE: After publishing this post, I read Halfwheel’s post and they say the blend is: “…an Ecuadorian corojo wrapper over a Dominican binder and Dominican fillers that are grown at Estancia La Flor de Palma, the farm shared by La Flor Dominicana and Tabacalera Palma.”
