In a time that even old world Europe that had become the EU is threatening to make all cigarettes generic and ban brand packaging in all of its 29-member nations, Nat Sherman still continues to offer their clients a true gentleman’s emporium by hosting events in their historic smokers’ Johnson Club with exciting leaders in the cigar industry.
The dinner in honor of La Flor Dominicana co-founder and cigar master, Litto Gomez is one of such events. Celebrity chef Olivier Cheng prepared a delectable four-course dinner accompanied by a cigar menu of La Flor Dominicana blends.

The star of the evening was undoubtedly the LFD Ligero 579 Oscuro Natural – a unique cigar created, and available, only for the evening.
