The new La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especialé was inspired by an antique humidor that was found at the legendary El Credito Cigar Factory. During the 8-plus years it took to recreate this humidor, Team La Gloria worked to put together a painstaking blend of tobaccos, not the least of which is a brand new wrapper leaf, created by cross-breeding a Connecticut seed and growing it in Honduras. Underneath this deceptively-silky wrapper leaf are two binders—one from Mexico and one from Nicaragua—along with a proprietary, ligero-heavy filler blend from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
The team’s hard work culminated in La Gloria Cubana Artestanos Retro Especialé, a surprisingly bold smoke that perfectly combines the creamy, floral subtleties of the Honduran Connecticut wrapper with the bold, peppery, leathery flavors of Dominican and Nicaraguan ligero in the filler. As with any La Gloria Cubana cigar, you can expect exemplary construction in each stick, resulting in a razor-straight burn and generous draw. Try La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especialé and experience a one-of-a-kind taste that took nearly a decade to perfect!
