La Gloria Cubana launches a spanish pressed line. The vitola shaped line is being manufactured inside the larger General Cigar Dominicana factory, also called El Credito. As the name implies, Spanish pressed is a technique where the cigars are placed into trays with dividers immediately after rolling. The cigars are then placed into boxes that are designed to allow the cigars to keep the shape.
Yuri Guillen, production manager for El Credito, explained in a press release: “This method eliminates air pockets to deliver an optimal draw and output of smoke, resulting in an enhanced smoking experience. We developed a very special blend to showcase our unique technique, and believe we have delivered a fantastic addition to the La Gloria Cubana portfolio.”
