La Gloria Cubana is set to release a cigar developed in collaboration with the family-owned El Titán
de Bronze Cigar Factory.
Created to honor La Gloria’s roots in Miami’s Little Havana district, the limited-edition release called
“Eighth Street” was developed in collaboration with Justin Andrews and blended by the team at El
Titán de Bronze.
Justin Andrews said, “La Gloria Cubana Eighth Street is proudly made in the USA and honors the
roots of this legendary brand. For this special project, we blended to a classic La Gloria profile which
means the cigar has a lot of personality, is well-balanced through its many transitions and delivers a
rich, long finish. This is an elegant and complex cigar that every fan of La Gloria Cubana will want to
Sandy Cobas, owner of El Titán de Bronze said, “La Gloria Cubana is one of Calle Ocho’s biggest
success stories and it’s a brand my team and I have long admired. When we were approached about
collaborating on this special project, we jumped at the chance. ‘Eighth Street’ is our way of paying
tribute not only to La Gloria Cubana, but also to the Cuban expatriate cigar rollers who continue to
practice their craft in Miami, keeping the traditions of their homeland alive.”
The full-bodied smoke is made with a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos and a
Nicaraguan binder that are enrobed in a rich, Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper. The cigar delivers
a robust smoking experience, with notes of espresso, leather and spice.
La Gloria Cubana Eighth Street is crafted at the El Titan de Bronze factory on Calle Ocho (Eighth
Street) in Miami’s Little Havana district. The cigars are presented in 10-count, wooden boxes and
only 5,000 boxes have been made. This special release will ship to retailers on October 3 rd and will
be distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
