About DBL Cigars

Francisco started working with tobacco at the age of 7, deveining leaves for his father, and by the time he was 12 years old, he was rolling cigars. Tobacco quickly became his passion and creating fine premium cigars became his mission. Francisco had the unique opportunity to work under the tutelage of two of the world’s most famous cigars makers, Mr. Carlos Fuente (A. Fuente Cigars) and Mr. Litto Gomez (La Flor Dominicana Cigars). Both legendary cigars makers have passed down an abundance of knowledge to Francisco, who, in turn, has incorporated the knowledge, experience and craftsmanship into his own brand, DBL by Francisco Almonte. Having worked alongside two of the cigars industry’s biggest names has given Francisco the ability to create incredible cigars that are extremely satisfying, full of flavor and perfectly constructed.


Our factory is located in Tamboril, Santiago on the Dominican Republic. Tamboril is home to the cigar industry’s biggest names and top rollers. Despite its small size, Tamboril is often referred to as the “world Capital” of cigars and cigars rollers because it is the epicenter of cigars manufacturing, housing more cigars factories and rollers than anywhere else on the planet.
