This all started in Miami when La Gloria Cubana was a tiny brand, rolled in Little Havana with a small but loyal following. As La Glorias gained national recognition, tobacco corporation General Cigar took notice and bought the brand in 1997. Today, La Gloria Cubana is made in the Dominican Republic, but General treats it with reverence, and still proclaims La Gloria to be a boutique brand. A special rolling gallery within the large factory is dedicated only to the production of La Gloria. Many varieties of La Gloria Cubana now exist, but the original blend, with its Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, still impresses, showing a harmoniously nutty smoke atop an earthy core and fresh tobacco finish.
