The Return to Calle Ocho
Our legacy began in Miami’s Little Havana district located on Calle Ocho. We’ve come a long way since then, and now, we’re returning to our roots with the second release of La Gloria Cubana 8th Street!
Made in collaboration with the masters at El Titan de Bronze, the 2023 La Gloria Cubana 8th Street features the same core as last year's blend—a perfectly-aged mix of Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos. But the highlight of the 2023 cigar is an Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper, adding an extra level of depth and richness to the experience.
Simply put, the 2023 La Gloria Cubana 8th Street is far more than a cigar. It honors where we've been and guides us toward the next decade of our legacy.

Serie R Esteli Maduro. I love the draw and the full creamy, peppery taste.

Elevate Your 8th Street Experience
The 2023 La Gloria Cubana 8th Street is grand on its own, but the right pairing brings out every nuance of taste.
We recommend selecting a drink pairing that enhances the tasting notes you appreciate most. If you enjoy 8th Street’s subtly sweet notes of coffee, cream, and dark chocolate, consider opting for an espresso. Together, they make for an elegant after dinner treat.
If you’re looking for a bolder taste, bourbon might be the pairing for you. Bourbon's woody, slightly sweet notes complement the leathery, chocolatey taste of the Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper. On the other hand, pinot noir delivers a more refined experience, deepening the cigar’s sweetness and adding a slight zest.
Whichever beverage you choose, you’ll find that the 2023 LGC 8th Street provides a rich sensory experience in every puff.
