UNIQUE. SOUGHT-AFTER. A COLLECTOR'S PIECE
A new 2018 Regional Edition is being released in Switzerland - the La Gloria Cubana Orgullosos Cigar. The brand - although smaller than some other Habanos SA names, continues to produce some of the most elegant and aromatic Cuban Cigars.
Typically comprising a medium flavour that's full-bodied, La Gloria Cubana Cigars were founded in 1885, and sources filler and binder tobacco from Cuba's Vuelta Abajo region. All their vitolas are long-filler and totally hand rolled. Thus ensuring the most impeccable quality and construction. This newest habano of their's, has the sizing of a Double Robusto, measuring 184mm by a 50 ring gauge. The Nro.109 vitola is one of the most iconic from Habanos SA. A mere handful of cigars can claim to possessing, such as the original Partagas Lusitania Cigar. But now the La Gloria Cubana Orgullosos Cigar can be added to the sought-after list. This unique vitola has an exclusive figurado cigar head. Known in Spanish as "Cabeza", the figurado style takes years of experience to be able to craft, and was once applied to Prominiente vitolas.
A box of La Gloria Cubana Orgullosos Cigar
As with all Regional Edition Cigars, the habano is incredibly lucrative and rare in number. There are only 6,000 boxes produced in the entire world, with 10 cigars in each. That means just 60,000 individual cigars available. Since 2005, when the Regional concept was introduced, cigar aficionados have rejoiced in adding to their collections. They are the ultimate luxury and are true collection pieces which every humidor should feature. Another fantastic Regional is the La Gloria Cubana Serie D No. 5 Cigar (Ex. Espana 2017). They have a smaller length of 110mm but with the same 50 ring gauge, making them a classic Petit Robusto.
