Tasting Note
La Gloria Cubana cigars have a rich history, and have been rolled in many countries. Created in Cuba in 1885, La Glorias were one of Havana's more obscure brands. A Miami version became the hottest brand in America during the early days of the cigar boom. Production was shifted to the Dominican Republic to meet demand. Last year, brand owner General Cigar Co. launched the first ever Nicaraguan La Gloria Cubana cigars. One was designed only for Internet and catalog retailers, while the Serie R Esteli was made exclusively for brick-and-mortar cigar shops. It's one of the best La Glorias in years, with a core of leather and coffee notes complemented by a nutty and floral character.
