General Cigar Co. is planning a limited release addition to their La Gloria Cubana line, the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black, which will be available only to top El Credito accounts.
The new cigar is described as a “full bodied and full flavored Serie R appealing to serious cigar smokers,” and will feature a nearly black Oscuro wrapper. La Gloria Cubana currently uses an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper for the natural version of the Serie R and a Connecticut Broadleaf for the Maduro version. The binder is Nicaraguan with a filler of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos.
Specifics on sizes, price and availability have not been released, though it is expected to debut in April.
