Released back in 2010 by General Cigar, the La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Tabaqueros line utilizes two wrapper leaves on one cigar. However, this is not the only thing that makes this cigar unique, as the tobaccos chosen for the wrapper(s) have not been used by the La Gloria Cubana brand. In an interview with Cigar Aficionado, Michael Giannini, marketing director for General Cigar, stated, “We thought about this like we were at a restaurant eating food. The Connecticut Shade (at the foot of the cigar) is the appetizer, and this is the big entrée (pointing to the Ecuador Sumatra wrapper).” The design is intended for the smoker to experience two separate distinct flavors as the cigar is smoked.
