La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reserva 7.5 X 54
It’s amazing how the world can bring people who have seemingly parted ways back together again, and the cigar world is no exception.
The non-Cuban version of the La Gloria Cubana brand goes back to 1972 and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Sr., the father of the bald-headed cigar maker that many smokers know today. The brand was kept in the family as father passed it down to son, that was until 1999, when the younger Ernesto sold the El Credito Cigar Co. to Swedish Match, at the time the owner of General Cigar Co. Junior would remain with General until 2009, when he started his own factory and brand.
While it seemed like the two would be destined to go their separate ways, they would eventually reunite by was of the aptly named Re+United project, a collaboration between Perez-Carrillo Jr. and Michael Giannini, who at the time was La Gloria Cubana’s brand manager. Having worked closely together in the first years following the sale, Giannini considered Perez-Carrillo a mentor, teacher, and friend.
This year, General Cigar Co. and Ernesto Perez-Carrillo Jr. have once again teamed up to create a new addition to the La Gloria Cubana line, a three-vitola series called the La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva.
The La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva uses a Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper with the binder—a viso leaf–and fillers, seco and ligero both coming from Nicaragua. The line is available in three sizes, with production handled by Perez-Carrillo’s Tabacalera La Alianza.
