Read on to learn about the best new cigars you can get from Forged Cigars.
Los Statos Deluxe
Forged Cigars is proud to release the Los Statos Deluxe, a new cigar collaboration by two seasoned cigar industry members. We are referring to Matt Booth and Justin Andrews.
Matt Booth has been part of the cigar industry for 13 years, having founded Room101 cigars in 2009. Last month, Room101 was acquired by STG, the company for which Justin Andrews serves as business development manager. Forged Cigars is a subsidiary of STG.
Booth remained with STG, now serving the company as the creative director, and this revamp of the Los Statos Deluxe brand is STG's first release with Booth as a company member.
Booth and Andrews have worked on updating STG's Los Statos Deluxe brand. This cigar's elements consist of an Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper, a Nicaraguan binder and filler, and a filler from the Dominican Republic.
The blend's flavor profile transitions as the smoke progresses. The flavors are bold and smooth, containing notes of coffee and chocolate with a hint of black pepper spice.
In a press release, Booth said that this cigar would capture the attention of traditional and discerning cigar collectors. Booth and Andrews share a passion for keeping the Los Statos Deluxe brand worthy of the respect it has garnered, and this collaborative effort will make for a memorable smoking experience.
The Los Statos Deluxe is being offered in four sizes. Those sizes are:
- Los Statos Deluxe Robusto 5 x 50
- Los Statos Deluxe Toro 6 x 52
- Los Statos Deluxe Churchill 7 x 49
- Los Statos Deluxe Gigante 6 x 60
This exciting new blend is one you won't want to miss.
La Gloria Cubana Serie S
The La Gloria Cubana Serie S looks to be extremely popular this year. Of course, that is to be expected from a company that played a role in America's Cigar Boom in 1990.
The original La Gloria Cubana blend was created in Miami in 1972. But when Ernesto Perez-Carillo took over in 1980, the brand started to gain notoriety. The brand developed a cult following in the 1990s before eventually developing into a national brand.
Forged Cigar purchased the La Gloria Cubana brand in 1999 and offered Perez-Carillo a job. Perez-Carillo eventually left to start his own company in 2009, though he has worked with the company to create other blends.
The new Serie S blend from La Gloria Cubana will be the first regular product from the brand to feature a Mexican wrapper. It will also feature a Nicaraguan binder and a mix of Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers.
In a press release for the Serie S, La Gloria Cubana's marketing director Steve Abbott explained that the cigar would combine large gauges with expert blending and craftsmanship to create a premium medium to full-bodied smoke. The blend flavor is a mixture of leathery and spicy, and it is blended to give off a pleasant aroma as it burns.
The La Gloria Cubana Serie S is set to be offered at the following sizes and prices:
- Robusto Gordo=5 1/2 x 56 - $7.99
- Gigante=6 x 60 - $8.49
- Presidente=7 x 56 — $8.99
The cigars will come in black cabinet-style boxes, each housing 24 cigars.
La Gloria Cubana has played a big role in making cigars popular in America, and Forged Cigars is eager to please fans of the brand with this magnificent new blend.
Forged Cigar Company
These cigars are regular products from Forged Cigar Company, a subsidiary of STG and a sister to Forged Cigars. Since their founding last year, they've generated buzz since offering their first brand, El Rey Del Mundo.
With experts like Booth and Andrews working hard on this blend, and with the high standards set by the La Gloria Cubana brand, it can be assured that these new cigars will uphold the high standards STG, Forged Cigars, and Forged Cigar Company have set. If you're looking to add some new quality stogies to your humidor, you don't want to miss out on trying these new cigar releases.
