For Great Britain's most recent Edicion Regional release, the distributor Hunters & Frankau turned to a cigar released in 2009 for its inspiration, the Juan Lopez Seleccion Suprema, and while it may not be completely appropriate to call this a follow-up, it's certainly not challenging to see the similarities.

That cigar, which was released with a secondary band denoting it as an exclusive for Reino Unido, or the United Kingdom, was a 6 7/10 x 52 double robusto. The Seleccion Superba is a bit shorter and fatter than its predecessor, measuring 5 7/8 x 54, and comes bearing a secondary band indicating it is Exclusivo Gran Bretana, or exclusive to Great Britain. The two cigars share the same design on the primary band, and while it looks similar to those found on the regular production sizes, it's the inclusion of the size's name that makes it unique, as well as some extra embossing, both of which date back to before the Cuban revolution.

According to London retailer C.Gars Ltd., the Juan Lopez Seleccion Superba was produced at an unnamed factory in San Antonio de los Banos, which lies within Havana province. A total of 6,000 boxes of 10 were produced.
