On Wednesday morning, Michael Giannini of La Gloria Cubana tweeted news of a new offering from the brand, a 6 1/2 x 64 Gorda Gorda that is limited to just 500 boxes and is only being made available in the western United States.
The cigars appear to be packed in 10-count slide top boxes, which would bring the total production to 5,000 cigars. No specifics were shared about the blend or availability, other than that they are being made available only in the western United States.
Giannini followed up the tweet with a reply to a Florida based retailer saying that La Gloria Cubana is working on “other special things.”
More information about this new release will be added to this story as it becomes available.
UPDATE: Michael Giannini says that the cigar will cost around $8 per stick and do come in 10-count boxes. He added that he and Yuri Guillen, production manager for General Cigar Dominicana, had been playing around and having fun with various sizes and this was the result of those experiments. Giannini says that they should know soon which retail tobacconists will have these available.
