La Gloria Cubana collaborating with the famed, family-owned El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory. The company wanted to make this bran dto honor La Gloria’s roots in Miami’s Little Havana district, where El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory is located. This is reflected in the name of the limited-edition called “Eighth Street.” The concept was created by Justin Andrews and the cigar was blended by the team at El Titán de Bronze.
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 experience.
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 blend is desfribed as full-bodied and made with Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos including a Nicaraguan binder and Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper. La Gloria Cubana Eighth Street is, of course, rolled at the El Titan de Bronze factory on Calle Ocho (Eighth Street) in Miami’s Little Havana district. The cigars come in boxes of 10 and only 5,000 boxes have been made. This special release will ship to retailers on October 3rd and will be distributed by Forged Cigar Company. The cigar itself comes in just one size, a 6” x 50 Toro that sells for $21.99.
