La Gloria Cubana is announcing its latest release, the Medio Tiempo, a distinctive three-cigar collection that will begin appearing in stores on May 4, 2021. Medio Tiempo will be a regular production cigar in La Gloria Cubana’s line of premium cigars.
This new collection of cigars is named after the Medio Tiempo leaves of bold, sun grown Connecticut Havano tobacco plant. Medio Tiempo leaves are a rare occurrence that happens when two additional leaves sprout above the highest priming, which end up getting more sunlight, nutrients and taste characteristics. The Medio Tiempo adds another layer to the overall smoking experience, giving the blend a deep, rich complexity. Medio Tiempo leaf can be easily identified by its stand-out brownish-black color that is visible at the foot of the cigar prior to lighting.
In a press release, Steve Abbot, senior brand manager for La Gloria Cubana, commented: “The artisans of El Credito set out to highlight a rare tobacco leaf with ‘Medio Tiempo’ and ultimately delivered another fine example of their masterful blending techniques. All of the tobaccos that comprise this new collection are interwoven to perfection, and together, they tell a memorable story.”
The La Gloria Cubana Medio Tiempo blend consists of hand-selected Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos, with a rich Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper and Connecticut Broadleaf binder. According to La Gloria Cubana, this cigar will deliver “cascading notes of leather, coffee, nuts and butter.” The La Gloria Cubana Medio Tiempo is a medium-bodied blend handcrafted at the El Credito Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. This cigar will be available in 25-count boxes in three different sizes: Robusto (5 x 54), Toro (6 1/8 x 50), and Churchill (7 1/4 x 54).
