What’s old is new again.
Back in pre-embargo Cuba, when the box-pressing was a novel concept in cigar manufacturing, the process was a bit different than it is today. Instead of using molds to press cigars before placing them in a box, the box-press was achieved by simply placing cigars in specially-sized boxes that would apply even pressure to the cigars, resulting in a more even box-press that eliminated air pockets and guaranteed an excellent draw. This was known as a “Spanish Press”, and the Spanish Press by La Gloria Cubana is the perfect tribute to this classic style.
The La Gloria Cubana Sapnish Press features a toothy Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper, brimming with flavors that perfectly compliment the San Andres binder and tri-country filler blend consisting of Nicaraguan Jalapa, Dominican Piloto Cubano, Dominican Olor, and Brazilian Mata Fina tobacco. Along with a great draw and smoke production, you’ll find spicy earthiness and notes of cedar and toast. This release is an excellent addition to La Gloria Cubana’s portfolio, and a terrific way to honor the roots of an important genre of cigars. Grab a box of La Gloria Cubana Spanish Press, and light up old-world Cuba style.
Note: La Gloria Cubana recently underwent a packaging update. We currently have a mix of old and new packaging, so you may receive either. The cigars are the same, just the bands & boxes have changed.
