The Fattest Cuban La Gloria Cubana Comes To Asia Pacific

The Fattest Cuban La Gloria Cubana Comes To Asia Pacific

The La Gloria Cubana Revolution, a Cuban cigar made especially for the Asia Pacific region, is the plumpest Cuban La Gloria Cubana on the market. Marketed as part of Cuba's Edición Regional program, the Revolution measures 5 1/8 inches by 55 ring gauge—one of the fattest smokes that Cuba produces. The size is known as a Montesco in Cuban cigar factories and was first put into normal production back in 2010 when Habanos released the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill.

"We wanted to offer a new size to our Asian market," said a representative of Pacific Cigar Ltd., the official distributor for Cuban cigars for the Asia Pacific region. "Our aim is to avoid repetition with our Regional Editions."

La Gloria Cubana Revolution

Available now, the La Gloria Cubana Revolution retails for HK$308 ($39.70) and comes packaged in 20-count wooden boxes. Only 2,500 boxes are being produced.

Although brought to the market this year, the La Gloria Cubana Revolution was billed as the 2015 Regional Edition cigar for Asia Pacific. Special limited cigars such as these often come out late, many times in the next calendar year.

The Regional Edition program started in 2005 and was created to give countries around the world the opportunity to sell unorthodox, market-specific cigars customized for certain regions. Only the smaller Cuban brands like La Gloria Cubana, Ramon Allones or Diplomaticos are used for the Regional Edition program. Larger brands such as Cohiba and Montecristo are reserved for the Edición Limitada yearly campaign.

For a rating on the La Gloria Cubana Revolution, see an upcoming issue of Cigar Insider.
