Stogie Travels hosted by Myron Gooch Sr. “
La Gloria Cubana Esteli at IPCPR 2018”.
La Gloria Cubana Esteli takes the brand on a flight of exploration to Central America.
A modern, fuller-bodied take on the classic La Gloria smoking experience, La Gloria Cubana Esteli represents the best of Central American tobaccos and deepens the profile of the brand’s original “white box” blend.
Steve Abbot, senior brand manager for La Gloria Cubana said, “We named this collection in honor of the artisans of our factory in Esteli who did a fantastic job creating the blend and bringing a deeper taste profile to the La Gloria portfolio. We’re confident that fans of La Gloria Cubana will enjoy the modern flavor of ‘Esteli’ and recognize the spirit of Nicaragua in this exciting new collection.”
Distinctive and savory with the characteristic spice that’s prevalent throughout the La Gloria portfolio, La Gloria Cubana Esteli begins with a bold, dark wrapper from Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley, a leaf that imparts the lion’s share of flavor to the blend and sets the stage for a multi-dimensional taste experience.
A rich blend maximizes the wrapper, as Honduran Jamastran and La Entrada fillers and a Jamastran binder come together to deliver a complex smoke with notes of cedar, spice and white pepper. This is a medium-to-full-bodied smoke that burns to a stark white ash.
La Gloria Cubana Esteli is handcrafted at STG Esteli and debuts in August with these three frontmarks:
Robusto (4.5” x 52); SRP per cigar $4.99; 25 cigars per box
Toro (5.5” x 54); SRP per cigar $5.99; 25 cigars per box
Gigante (6.25 x 60); SRP per cigar $6.99; 20 cigars per box
