For its latest release, La Gloria Cubana turned to its fans to create the brand’s latest limited edition release. The La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar gets its name from a special group of cigar smokers that interact with the brand regularly both online through the LGC website and offline through La Gloria activations across the US.
The La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar was blended with input from more than 2,000 of the brand’s most devoted fans from across the U.S. They consulted on the profile, packaging and size of the cigar in a collaborative process that spanned nearly a year.
It’s been a pleasure to harness the Society’s passion for La Gloria and it’s an honor to provide them with a cigar that reflects what the brand represents to them. We look forward to collaborating with this great group of tenured smokers on future releases.

The new cigar is rolled at the El Credito Cigar Factory, a stand-alone rolling gallery within General Cigar Dominicana. The La Gloria Cigar Society cigar is a Honduran puro that uses a Olancho San Agustin wrapper, Jamastran binder, and fillers from Jamastran and La Entrada.
The cigars will come in just one size, a box-pressed toro that measures 6.25″ x 54 and sells for $8.99. They are presented in 20-count, wooden boxes. A total of 2,500 boxes will be released in early August and is being distributed by Forged Cigar Company.
