Forged Cigar Co. is now offering the La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 8 as part of its portfolio, meaning the cigar should appear at many more cigar stores than it previously did.

The La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 8 is a 7 x 70 version of the Serie R, meaning it uses an Ecuadorian Sumatran wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. It has an MSRP of $11.99 per cigar and is offered in boxes of 15 cigars.

This is not a new cigar, but previously it was a category-specific item that was not offered to brick-and-mortar cigar stores. Forged Cigar Co. is part of Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG), parent of Cigars International, General Cigar Co., Thompson Cigar and others.
