In my opinion, the taste of the La Gloria Cubana cigar easily rivals the best Cuban cigars ever made. This masterful creation from Ernesto Carrillo took the stogie world by storm when it was introduced many years ago, and it remains one of the most popular brands today. This is a powerful cigar with two stunning wrappers: a silky Ecuador Sumatra and a licorice-black Connecticut broadleaf. Right from the very first draw, La Gloria wallops your palate with bold, earthy flavors of pepper, leather, spice, and coffee. More than just a strong smoke, these beauties have tremendous complexity and refinement, and a sweet and savory finish.
