Cigar smokers in Italy will have a new—and long overdue—Edición Regional from Habanos S.A. on shelves next month, as the La Gloria Cubana Edición Regional Italia is scheduled for a March 9 launch after being announced as part of the 2017 class of regional releases.
The cigar comes in the familiar Robustos vitola, which measures 4 9/10 inches (124mm) long with a 50 ring gauge. It’s the same size as the well-known Cohiba Robusto, Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No.2 and the Partagás Serie D No.4.
Diadema S.p.a., the distributor of Habanos S.A. cigars in Italy, has commissioned 8,800 boxes of 10 cigars, each priced at €125 ($141.97). This is the first time that the La Gloria Cubana brand has been featured as an Edición Regional for Italy.
