Michael Gianni and his team found an antique humidor while hanging out at the El Credito factory. They spent the next 10 years trying to replicate the style of the humidor and a further 8 years to create the perfect blend for it. The result was the delicious Retro Especiale. It has a unique and flavorful blend using a Connecticut wrapper, grown in Honduras, combined with a double binder and spicy long fillers from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. This creates a full-flavored cigar that’s satisfying to even the most discriminating premium cigar smokers. This cigar was a homage to the quality and craftsmanship that has always been at the center of La Gloria Cubana.
