Release Marks First Time Mexican Wrapper Used in a La Gloria Blend

SANTIAGO, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC—La Gloria Cubana cigars will debut a new, full-time collection next month. Named “Serie S,” the line marks the first time a Mexican wrapper will be featured in a La Gloria Cubana blend.

Handcrafted at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic, the La Gloria Cubana blending team chose a Mexican San Andrés wrapper for the Serie S. Following a prolonged, low-temperature fermentation, the wrapper bears a warm, golden brown color.

La Gloria Serie S cigars are presented in all wide ring sizes.

At the blend’s core is a Nicaraguan binder and blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers. In addition to the slightly sweet and earthy qualities of the wrapper, La Gloria Cubana Serie S also issues notes of  leather, light spice, and a pleasing aroma.

Distributed by Forged Cigar Company, La Gloria Cubana Serie S will ship in mid-July and debut in three sizes presented in black cabinet-style boxes of 24 cigars.

Robusto Gordo (5½” x 56); SRP per cigar $7.99

Gigante (6” x 60); SRP per cigar $8.49

Presidente (7” x 56); SRP per cigar $8.99

“Serie S combines large-ring formats, expert blending, and fine craftsmanship in a medium-to-full-bodied smoke,” said La Gloria Cubana director of marketing Steve Abbot. “We believe this new collection will be a well-received addition to the brand portfolio.” CA
