La Gloria Obelisco Gets New Five-Pack for Holidays

General Cigar Co has released a five-pack of its box-pressed, obelisk-shaped La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Obelisco for the holidays.

The third installment of the La Gloria Cubana Artesanos series, the Obelisco debuted in the summer of 2010 and has since been sold in unique, fan-shaped boxes of 25. The design is inspired by the Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration high atop the center of Santiago in the Dominican Republic.

The oddly-shaped cigars, which scored 90 points in the last issue of Cigar Insider, now come in a more convenient package, and with a suggested retail of $45.

The cigars measure 5 inches by 57 ring at their widest, tapering to just 44 ring at the pointed head. They are made with Ecuadoran Sumatra wrappers, Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, and Connecticut Broadleaf binders.

Check out the latest issue of Cigar Insider for more.
