2020 saw United Cigars’ La Gianna Havana brand celebrate its 25th anniversary. Following a packaging facelift a little over a year ago, this year, United is bringing back a brand known as La Gianna Angelic. It’s a brand that was first introduced back in 2001 for a short run.
La Gianna Angelic is a mild to medium cigar that features a sweetened cap. Produced at the Camacho factory in Honduras, the blend consists of an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Honduran Habano Criollo binder, and a combination of Dominican Criollo ’98, Aleman Seco, and Honduran Criollo ’98 in the filler. One unique characteristic is the cap contains a thin strip of maduro leaf at the head of the cigar resembling a halo to distinguish the line from the La Gianna Havana Natural blend.
La Gianna Angelic is available in five sizes – each presented in 20-count boxes. La Gianna Angelic features a white cream slide box to complete the Red (Natural), White (Sweet Tip) & Blue (Maduro) theme of United Cigars.
“We rediscovered the beauty of a delicate kiss of sweetness,” said United Cigars Director of Operations, Oliver Nivaud in a press release. “We have the right factory for this production and the Angelic is brilliant.”
The cigars have already begun shipping to retailers.
