La Familia Robaina Cigars annouced today the shipment of their H.R. Signature Exclusive Corona Gorda to The Empire Social Lounge in Miami and Casa de Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar in Brickell.
“The Corona Gorda is one of my and Hirochi’s favorite vitolas. When we were adding sizes to the line in 2016, the Corona Gorda was a must. Since then, we have often carried that cigar around as our personal smoke. When we offered an exclusive size to Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar, Shiah Goldberg, General Manager jumped at the chance to try the H.R. Signature blend in the Corona Gorda vitola as it is
his preferred size. Once he tried it…. “The rest is history”. – Spence Drake
“As we quickly approach the opening of our newest branded location in South Miami, Empire Social Lounge, it made perfect sense to celebrate this achievement with an exclusive cigar. The Empire Social brand is the product of our roots and our vision forward. The opportunity to encapsulate this evolution with a storied Cuban tobacco heritage and modern Nicaraguan production in a timeless, classic size is the perfect storyboard. When Spencer Drake approached me with the idea it was as if he had our brand’s future in mind.” – Shiah Goldberg, General Manager Ryan Leeds and Jason Reznik, the founders of Prime Cigar and Empire Social Lounge.
The cigars are rolled at Omar González-Alemán’s La Corona Factory in Esteli Nicaragua.
