La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiale

The folks at Team La Gloria have announced the upcoming release of the La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiale. The line is set to ship by the end of September, but will be offered at private tastings across the United States beginning in mid-August.

Michael Giannini, National Sales Manager and Marketing Director for La Gloria Cubana, introduced the upcoming line in the official press release: “It gives me great pleasure to debut La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiale. We set out to create a product that was as unique in its packaging as it is in its taste and I believe we’ve delivered that in spades. I stand with Team La Gloria, fully confident that this collection will be a welcome addition to the smoking repertoires of today’s most discriminating premium cigar smokers.”

The Artesanos Retro Especiale is the result of a collaboration between Giannini and Team La Gloria. The cigar’s creation was inspired by an antique humidor that was found at the El Credito Cigar Factory. Giannini and his team spent approximately eight years trying to replicate the humidor, and they spent an equal amount of dedication towards blending the new line as well.

Team La Gloria finally settled on a complex blend for the Artesanos Retro Especiale, which features a core of Nicaraguan Ligero and Dominican Ligero tobaccos mixed with proprietary Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. A double binder of Mexican and Nicaraguan tobaccos comes next, and a special cross-bred Honduran Connecticut wrapper tops things off. The wrapper is successful in not only supplying the cigar with a silky appearance, but it also allows helps to bring out each of the components’ unique flavors. Despite the smooth and creamy outer appearance of the Artesanos Retro Especiale, it is said to offer some spiciness.

The Artesanos Retro Especiale will be offered in four sizes: the 5 ¾ x 47 Club, 6 x 52 Habanero, 6 ½ x 58 Cubano, and 7 x 52 Taino. The cigar will come packaged in boxes of 25, with each size’s box having its own design. Suggested retail price will range from $7 to $8.15 per single, depending on the size.
