La Gloria Cubana presents “Criollo de Oro,” a new two-cigar collection named after the hybrid varietal developed by crossing two Cuban seed tobaccos: the Criollo ’98 with the Cuban seed Pelo de Oro.
La Gloria Cubana Criollo De Oro has a Criollo de Oro wrapper with a Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos. It is offered in two sizes, the 5.75 x 54 Toro ($10.49) and a 7 x 48 Churchill ($10.99).
Criollo de Oro features an art deco-inspired band that highlights the brand’s iconic Lady La Gloria marque and carries the imagery to its dark wood-toned box.
The collection is produced at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, D.R. and will ship to retailers in October.
“We created Criollo de Oro in the La Gloria Cubana in the tradition of blending proprietary and traditional tobaccos to deliver exciting smoking experiences,” Steve Abbot, senior brand manager for La Gloria Cubana, said in a press release. ” We’re confident that Criollo de Oro will appeal to a wide range of discerning premium cigar enthusiasts.”
