This past weekend, Famous Smoke Shop hosted its annual Cigarnival event, which featured a host of manufacturers and one new cigar, the La Gloria Cubana Gilded Age. Described as a stronger version of the regular La Gloria Cubana line, the Gilded Age is exclusive to Famous Smoke Shop.

Four sizes are priced between $73.99 and $90.99 per box of 18, they are: Churchill (7 x 52), Magnum (6 1/8 x 60), Robusto (5 x 52) and Toro (6 x 54).


The additional strength comes from largely from the filler blend which is described as primarily Nicaraguan Ligero, with Nicaraguan Viso mixed in. The Gilded Age features an Ecuadorian Sumatra Oscuro wrapper and a Honduran binder. The cigars are on sale at Famous Smoke Shop now.

Earlier this year, General Cigar Co. introduced the stronger La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black to its larger accounts like Famous Smoke Shop.
