In a greatest hits collection of sorts, Forged Cigar Co. is releasing a gift-set of top-scoring La Gloria Cubana cigars. The sampler is called the Selección Suprema, and contains six cigars from various La Gloria lines that have received ratings of 90 points or higher by Cigar Aficionado. Retailers can expect the collection to start shipping in mid-October.
“It’s ideal for longtime fans of the brand who want to have the most acclaimed releases in one box, and a great intro to the world of La Gloria Cubana for those who may be new to the brand,” says Steve Abbot, senior brand manager of La Gloria Cubana.
The set will contain the following cigars, along with their published ratings:

- La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 3, 92 points
- La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochino, 92 points and the No. 18 Cigar of 2011

All of the cigars in the set were manufactured in the Dominican Republic at the El Credito Cigars located within the General Cigar Dominicana factory, excluding the Serie R Esteli No. 54, which is made at STG Estelí in Nicaragua.
The La Gloria Cubana Selección Suprema set will ship in lacquered wooden boxes with a suggested retail price of $49.99 each.
