The San Cristobal de La Habana La Fuerza is one of the four cigars that, in 1999, were presented at the global launch of the brand. The vitola de Galera is Gordito, one of the very few exponents in the Cuban portfolio. Since 1999 it has been sold exclusively in 25 count Semi Plain Boxes.
The cigar is wrapped in a Colorado wrapper with brown reflections, but samples with reddish hues are often found. To the touch, it is quite rough, with not very marked veins. The construction is excellent, and the filling appears abundant. There is a slightly tight draw in some samples, but not so severe as to affect the smoke mechanics.
