DBL is not a common household name in the premium cigar industry, but it’s a brand that should certainly be on your radar. DBL stands for “Dominican Big Leaguer” and was founded by baseball nut Francisco Almonte (hence the name), and he has literally been working with tobacco since he was a kid at age 7. At this young age, he worked to devein tobacco for his father, and by age 12 he was rolling cigars. But there’s more to Almonte’s story. He had the unique privilege of studying and learning the ins & outs of cigar making and blending from none other than Carlos Fuente and Lito Gomez. With a pedigree like that, Francisco and DBL have some big shoes to fill. And in our opinion, they deliver.

The DBL Extra Viejo is an exquisite cigar that turns heads and demands respect. Its beautiful Mexican Arapiraca wrapper is smooth and silky with a dark, oily sheen. The binder is Dominican and the filler is Dominican and Brazilian. It is a medium-full strength cigar that packs plenty of rich, savory flavors that are sure to impress. The Extra Viejo is presented in a breathtaking humidor loaded with 41 total cigars in three sizes (toro, robusto, gordo). Each box is equipped with lock and key, humidifying device and hygrometer. The Extra Viejo Doble Prensado is a mouth-watering cigar that provides an unforgettable smoking experience.
