La Gloria Cubana is shipping the 2024 allocation of Corojo de Oro, a limited-edition blend that debuted in 2023 and is named after a proprietary hybrid tobacco. 

The varietal was developed in “innovation” fields in Mao, a picturesque valley in Northwestern Dominican Republic where La Gloria Cubana’s agronomists breed tobaccos for small batch releases. 

Called Corojo de Oro, the hybrid was created by crossing two Cuban seed tobaccos: the versatile Corojo 97-98 with the rare Cuban seed Pelo de Oro. While of wrapper quality, the hybrid leaf was selected as the binder for this one-of-a-kind blend. 

To achieve its finely balanced, medium-bodied profile, the artisans of La Gloria Cubana punctuated the exclusive binder with a rich Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and a blend of filler tobaccos including Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan Ometepe. The result is an indulgent smoke with layered notes of earth, cedar, citrus and white pepper.

Cory Beardsley, assistant brand manager for La Gloria Cubana said, “In creating a new tobacco varietal, our artisans developed Corojo de Oro to be a distinctive cigar that is unlike any other blend. This cigar is one of those rare finds, and it’s one that delivers on its promise of providing an extraordinary smoking experience.”

Handcrafted at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, D.R. La Gloria Cubana Corojo de Oro began shipping to retailers on February 2. The number of boxes in this year’s allotment is not being disclosed.

Corojo de Oro features an art deco-inspired band that highlights the iconic Lady La Gloria marque and carries the imagery to its elegant, wood-toned box.nLa Gloria Cubana Corojo de Oro Toro measures  6” x 50 with an MSRP of per cigar $10.49
