LA GLORIA CUBANA PRESENTS COROJO DE ORO
La Gloria Cubana presents “Corojo de Oro”, a new limited-edition release named after a proprietary hybrid varietal of tobacco. The special leaf was developed in “innovation” fields in Mao, a picturesque valley in Northwestern Dominican Republic where tobaccos for small batch releases are bred.
To create the new varietal called Corojo de Oro, agronomists crossed two Cuban seed tobaccos, the versatile Corojo 97-98 with the rare Cuban seed Pelo de Oro. While of wrapper quality, the hybrid leaf was selected as a binder to bring an added dimension to the cigar's four-country blend.
To achieve the finely balanced, medium-bodied profile, the artisans of La Gloria Cubana have punctuated the proprietary binder with a rich Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a blend of filler tobaccos including Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan Ometepe. The result is an indulgent smoke with layered notes of earth, cedar, citrus and white pepper.
Steve Abbot director of marketing for La Gloria Cubana said, “Corojo de Oro was created in the La Gloria Cubana tradition of blending proprietary and time-honored tobaccos. With this special release, our artisans have delivered a cigar with a distinctive taste profile that cannot be replicated in the market.”
Handcrafted at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, D.R. La Gloria Cubana Corojo de Oro will ship to retailers on March 1.
Corojo de Oro features an art deco-inspired band that highlights the brand's iconic Lady La Gloria marque and carries the imagery to its elegant, wood-toned box.
