An experimental genetic cross breeding of Criollo ’98 and Pelo de Oro tobacco seed—grown in the humid microclimate of Mao, Dominican Republic—yielded Criollo de Oro. This proprietary sungrown wrapper leaf gives the new limited edition La Gloria Cubana its name.
Criollo de Oro features the rich, sungrown wrapper dressing a Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos. The profile is provocative, medium bodied, and full of flavors like natural tobacco sweetness, cedar, citrus, earthiness, and light peppery undertones. LGC Criollo de Oro is available in very limited quantities—only 3,100 boxes are available nationwide—so make sure you get to try it. Secure your box today!
