A new limited edition La Gloria Cubana is coming to stores next month, and it draws on input from more than 2,000 fans to create its blend, packaging and vitola.
It is called the La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar, and is a Honduran puro that uses a wrapper from Olancho San Agustin, a binder from the Jamastran region, and fillers from Jamastran and La Entrada. It is offered in a 6 1/4 x 54 box-pressed toro extra vitola, with pricing set at $8.99 per cigar.
The cigar is made at El Credito Cigar Factory, a stand alone rolling gallery within General Cigar Dominicana. Production is limited 2,500 boxes of 20 cigars, a total of 50,000 cigars.
“It’s been a pleasure to harness the Society’s passion for La Gloria and it’s an honor to provide them with a cigar that reflects what the brand represents to them,” said Steve Abbot, director of marketing for La Gloria Cubana, via a press release. He added that there will be more collaboration in the future that could lead to additional cigars.
The La Gloria Cubana Society is an online community of the brand’s fans where they can get updates directly from the company, discuss their favorite La Gloria Cubana cigars, recommend pairings and other topics.
The cigars are being distributed by Forged Cigar Co. and will begin shipping in early August.
