As of about a month ago, Riverside Cigars is the only retailer outside of Miami that carries Casa Gomez, a medium-bodied premium long-filler cigar with a taste profile that comes on with sweet creamy complex flavor not found in any other cigar on the market today.
Originally established as La Roma Cigars in 1963 by Benny Gomez, Sr., the company was founded in Miami, on Calle Ocho, still a hotbed of boutique cigar makers. In 1979, another Cuban emigrant, Ernesto Perez Carrillo was interested in purchasing the factory, founding the world famous El Credito Factory, which went on to produce some of the hottest cigars on the market during the cigar boom of the 1990′s.
After the sale of the factory, the company was re-named the InterAmerica Cigar Company, and is now the distributor of the new Casa Gomez cigar line.
Medium bodied, bold flavors, great construction, these should be a staple in your humidor.
