2019 IPCPR: La Gloria Cubana 2019 IPCPR

La Gloria Cubana 2019 IPCPR




La Gloria Cubana was in the General Cigar Company booth debuting it’s latest release at the 2019 IPCPR in Las Vegas NV.

I’ve been pretty forthcoming about my top 5 standouts from the show, time to declare a sleeper! Launched at this years trade show the La Gloria Cubana Spanish press was not only good, it was phenomenal! Hence my 2019 IPCPR show sleeper.



In a nod to the past and present, an old-world technique is being used in the latest release from La Gloria Cubana, just as the brand’s modernized new logo makes its debut.

Called Spanish Press, the three-cigar collection is handcrafted at the El Credito Cigar Factory.

There, artisans place the freshly-rolled cigars into wooden trays with dividers that apply uniform pressure to the cigars.

The trays are then pressed to define their shape.

Once pressed, the cigars are placed in specially sized boxes that apply slight pressure to maintain their shape.



LGC Spanish Press Blend and Sizes:

  • Wrapper: Nicaraguan Jalapa
  • Binder: Mexican San Andrés
  • Filler: Nicaraguan Jalapa, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Olor, Brazilian Mata Fina
  • Robusto: 5 1/2 x 50
  • Toro: 6 1/2 x 52
  • Gigante: 6 x 60



Yuri Guillen, production manager for El Credito said, “This method eliminates air pockets to deliver an optimal draw and output of smoke, resulting in an enhanced smoking experience.

We developed a very special blend to showcase our unique technique, and believe we have delivered a fantastic addition to the La Gloria Cubana portfolio.”
