The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2011

La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochino

18

If it seems like every new cigar in the humidor is ultra fat, consider the La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochino. This long, slim smoke has a pigtail tip and an uncut tuck, or foot, so the early puffs give a smoker a taste of only the Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper. The smoke comes from the creative team at General Cigar Co. known as Team La Gloria, which is spearheaded by Michael Giannini. La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochinos are eye-grabbing.

The intriguing smokes come in three-packs wrapped in a ribbon inside a coffin-style box. They are also a bargain, selling for $15 per box of three, or only $5 per individual cigar. But looks and price aside, it’s the flavor that won the cigar its spot on this list. The Rabito de Cochinos are balanced and elegant, with substantial woody notes, followed by hints of cocoa and toast.
