This we talked to Yuri Guillen about the latest developments with La Gloria Cubana. If he looks familiar to you, you might be remembering him from part two of our General Cigar Factory Tour from earlier this year. Yuri is the production manager for the vast General Cigar factory in the Dominican Republic. At IPCPR he was focused on the new collaboration with Ernest Perez-Carrillo, the Coleccion Reserva.
The Coleccion Reserva features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler. It will be available in 20-count boxes in three sizes: Robusto (5 1/2 x 54), Torpedo (6 x 54) and Presidente (7 1/2 x 54).
