Michael Giannini of La Gloria Cubana talks about the newest blend from La Gloria Cubana that was introduced this week at the IPCPR 2014 trade show, the Rival Twin Chapter One
The next La Gloria Cubana product that’s coming out at our IPCPR Trade Show in Vegas this year and, again, available in the fall will be our Face Off. And the Face Off is Lady La Gloria which is made in the Dominican Republic, and what I’ve done now is tap into our Honduran factory. And I’ve created her rival twin, and she’s a little bit whimsical.
She wears black a lot, and it’s about two great sisters that are twins but they’re a little bit rivals. They love each other. So her product is coming from Honduras. So it’s a different play on La Gloria Cubanas, and there’s going to a faceoff between both of them. Two very unique blends. It’s their interpretation of the blends.
There are two guys that are involved with it. I’m working on the Honduran blend, and I have my partner at team La Gloria, Yuri Guillen. He’s working on the Lady La Gloria blend. The box is very unique and different, and you’ll see the two ladies dressed out at their full regalia with an 8×52 cigar for each of the two sizes.
