Almost every year, La Gloria Cubana brings out a new cigar in their Artesanos line. This year, they unveiled the Retro Especiale which was inspired by an old humidor found the El Credito factory. According to Michael Giannini, this cigar took 8 years to complete, 2 of which was on the wrapper alone. The wrapper is made of a cross-bred Connecticut wrapper which has a rich golden color to it which reminds me of the Macanudo Cafe wrapper. The cigar also features a dual binder of a Nicaraguan and Mexican tobaccos. The filler consist of Nicaraguan and Dominican ligero with proprietary tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The MSRP comes in at $7.00 which is right in the middle of what I consider the sweet spot area for cigar pricing. So, how did the Retro Especiale do? Watch the video and find out.
