General Cigar Company has announced the release of the La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar, a cigar named after a group of cigar smokers that interact with the brand regularly both online through the LGC website and offline through La Gloria activations across the US.
The La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar was developed with input from more than 2,000 of the brand’s most devoted fans from across the U.S. They consulted on the profile, packaging and size of the cigar in a collaborative process that spanned nearly a year.
“It’s been a pleasure to harness the Society’s passion for La Gloria and it’s an honor to provide them with a cigar that reflects what the brand represents to them. We look forward to collaborating with this great group of tenured smokers on future releases,” said Steve Abbot, director of marketing for La Gloria Cubana.
Produced at the El Credito Cigar Factory, a stand-alone rolling gallery within General Cigar Dominicana, the La Gloria Cigar Society cigar is a Honduran puro, with filler tobacco from Jamastran and La Entrada, with a Jamastran binder and features a Olancho San Agustin wrapper.
The cigars are available in one size, a box-pressed toro that’s presented in 20-count, wooden boxes. A total of 2,500 boxes will be released in early August and is being distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
La Gloria Cubana Society Toro (6.25” x 54); SRP per cigar $8.99
