La Gloria Cubana is adding a limited run cigar called the Serie R Little Belicoso that will only be made available to brick & mortar retailers.
The cigar is not a permanent addition to the LGC portfolio, but is a limited production item. They are being made in both natural and maduro wrappers, with each 40-count box containing 20 of each version. While the cigars are shipped in the same box, they are contained in two separate compartments with a see-through box top.
The La Gloria Cubana Serie R Little Belicoso was blended using the Serie R recipe, and while it is similar in size to the regular production Belicoso, it is both smaller and a slightly bigger ring gauge. The open stock Belicoso measures 5 3/4 x 56, where as the Little Belicoso measures 5 x 57.
Only 753 boxes of the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Belicoso are being made, for a production of 15,060 of each wrapper version and a total run of 30,120 cigars. The suggested retail price is $8.20 per cigar.
The La Gloria Cubana Little Belicoso has already begun shipping to stores who placed early orders.
