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 Formula is the answer to today’s demands. It is a powerful cigar full of strength featuring bigger sizes and robust flavors. It offers a peppery opening that morphs into a smooth, earthy body with notes of coffee and cedar. Each cigar is delicately constructed using unique tobaccos that are hand-selected by Francisco Almonte himself. The sun grown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper coupled with the Peruvian binder create a mouth-watering experience that is truly satisfying. The all-Dominican filler includes the island’s most prized tobacco, Piloto Cubano. The Formula series is available in four different vitolas and presented in boxes of 18.
