La Gloria Cubana’s biggest fans have spoken and parent company Scandinavian Tobacco Group has responded. Next month, a new La Gloria will be shipping to retailers and it’s the product of input from more than 2,000 lovers of the brand. 

Called the La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar, the new, limited-edition size came as a result of feedback from smokers who interact with the brand regularly both online and through La Gloria events across the country. They were polled on profile, packaging and size of the cigar in a data collection process that lasted almost a year.

After reviewing all the fan feedback, the La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar ended up being a Toro, measuring 6 1/4 inches by 54 ring gauge. It was given a suggested retail price of $8.99 and comes in boxes of 20. 

As for the blend, it consists of only Honduran tobacco—the filler is from Jamastran and La Entrada, the binder is from Jamastran and the wrapper was grown in Olancho San Agustín. Despite being a Honduran puro, the La Gloria Cubana Society Toro is made in the Dominican Republic at El Credito, a rolling gallery within the larger General Cigar Dominicana factory.

Only 2,500 boxes will be released in early August, all of which are distributed by Forged Cigar Co., a subsidiary of STG.
