La Gloria Cubana Serie RF Toro (Famous Smoke Exclusive)

Posted by Jack | in La Gloria Cubana | on 06 Aug 2015 | at 6:09 AM | 1863 views

I know I have said it before, but I will say it again....La Gloria is my favorite of the big-name-brands.  So, getting to review a shop exclusive LGC is pretty exciting.  This new Serie RF has been lauded as a perfect combo of La Gloria's finest tobaccos.  Bold words indeed.  Let's see how it plays out.  Here we go.... Construction: Like most of La Gloria's cigars, the RF is a tad lumpy and rustic looking.  The wrapper is deep brown with smooth seams and no veins.  The band is a dual affair that uses the standard and classic La Gloria band over the top of a rather simple striped deal.  I thought it was one band until I started trying to take it off the...

La Gloria Cubana Tres Puros Dominican Puro.

Posted by Jack | in La Gloria Cubana | on 05 Mar 2015 | at 11:00 AM | 1757 views

I have said before in one of my posts, that I tend to steer clear of the big name brands.  They just lack a bit of pizzazz that I find in smaller boutique blends.  Now, having said that again, I should caveat that with the two big name brands I do smoke often.  Punch comes in second to La Gloria Cubana....and that is the brand we are looking at today.  La Gloria has a nice old world feel while still being redolent of boutique brands.  My personal favorite La Gloria is the Serie N.  Seeing them release a trio of Puros this winter got me pretty excited and thanks to samples provided by the sales rep, I was lucky enough to try them before they...

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli No. 54

Posted by Jack | in La Gloria Cubana | on 29 Aug 2013 | at 10:27 AM | 3067 views

I remember the first time I tried a La Gloria.  It was the core line in 2002 or so.  I was overpowered by the strength of the cigar so much that I didn't like what it offered.  Since then they have become my favorite big name brand on the market - followed closely by Punch.  Early this summer I noticed a new offering in a Cigars International catalog called the La Gloria Serie R Black.  Needless to say, I was very interested.  Turns out the black edition is for online retailers only.  Not wanting to leave the brick and mortar crew out, La Gloria has created the Serie R Esteli line - for all purposes the same binder and filler with a different wrapper.  When...

La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochino Lancero

Posted by Jack | in La Gloria Cubana | on 03 Jun 2013 | at 7:08 PM | 2313 views

For Christmas in 2011, my family bought me a box of something truly unique.  I had seen them in a Cigars International catalog and had been drooling over them for a while.  Needless to say, I was thrilled with the gift. Low and behold, I also found out after receiving them, that this little lancero made number 18 on the top 25 cigars of 2011.  It's now a year and a half later and I am down to three remaining.  Do they live up to the hype?  Let's see.... Construction: I need to start off by describing the packaging for these little gems.  Rather than being packed in a standard wood or cardboard box, three cigars are lashed together with a yellow ribbon and placed...

La Gloria Cubana Trunk Show Liga LR-1

Posted by Jack | in La Gloria Cubana | on 10 Nov 2012 | at 12:43 PM | 1560 views

Limited edition is the name of the game with today's selection.  The La Gloria Cubana Trunk Show series is limited to two cigars in one vitola each....only 500 boxes of each exist.  In most cigar offerings that would mean a killer price tag making the cigar unobtainable to most budgets.  Not the case here.  The real draw here is the unique smokeable band on each.  The LR-1 features a die-cut tobacco leaf band you can burn right through.  Its sister cigar, the YG-12, which is a massive cigar, sports a band printed with a vegetable gum dye....a paper band that you can plow through too.  After the Foundry cigar wrapper explosion debacle, I followed my original instinct and grabbed the LR-1.  Next trip to The...
