La Gloria Series R Six Pack

The following press release was issued by general cigar today.

Mods: This is a public press release intended for reprint and distribution.





For Immediate Release
August 3, 2005


New La Gloria Cubana Serie R Six Pack Frontmark to Debut
New Size is Limited to Six Pack Display

New York, NY-- Popular demand among La Gloria Cubana Serie R® zealots caused Cigar Master Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, Jr. to develop the brand’s first new offering in three years. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news: the cigar that appears in the Serie R Six Pack Display is going to be pretty hard to come by.

Debuting in November and designed expressly for La Gloria Cubana fans eager for handsome, portable packaging, the 5” x 56 robusto will be released in limited quantities in a six-count wooden box which reflects the brand’s signature style. Individual cigars can be purchased for $6.15, while the six-count box will be available for $36.90.

The special six-count boxes will be displayed in a larger, stylish dark-wood box which will contain six individual Serie R packs, for a total of 36 cigars, at an SRP of $221.40.

Handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, the Serie R cigars are rich, robust and full-bodied. A blend of carefully selected tobacco, Serie R cigars are dressed in specially-aged Ecuadoran wrapper and filled with a proprietary blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco, complemented by a superb Nicaraguan binder.

The maker of such cigars as El Rico Habano®, La Gloria Cubana® and La Gloria Cubana Serie R®, El Credito Cigars is a unit of General Cigar Co., Inc. which manufactures and markets handcrafted cigars for the premium market. Committed to delivering cigars of the finest quality, General Cigar produces Macanudo®, Partagas®, Cohiba®, Punch®, Excalibur®, Hoyo de Monterrey® and several other leading premium brands. In addition, the company grows long filler tobacco, as well as natural and candela wrapper tobacco in the Dominican Republic. Headquartered in New York City, General Cigar operates Club Macanudo®, a cigar bar, and sells through tobacconists nationwide.
