La Gloria Cubana Cuban Cigars, a Cigar produced for the Cuban state-owned Tobacco Company in Cuba. It was produced by Sociedad Cabañas y Castro in 1885. Though the Cuban cigar brand was initiated by Sociedad Cabañas y Castro, it was later bought by José F. Rocha in 1905. José F. Rocha had a Cuban cigar factory at Havana where he manufactured the La Gloria Cubana cigars and the brand sold out.

The La Gloria Cubana cigars were then moved to Partagás Factory and up to date, it is still being produced at the Partagás Factory.
The Cuban Cigar brand became a much-known export brand. However, its production stopped for many years after Revolution and it stopped being available. This continued until 1965.
In 1965, the brand was brought back to light at the Partagás Factory and it has since then maintained and kept its fame amongst connoisseurs. Médaille d’Or No. 22 happens to be a uniquely priced vitola.
