Created to honor La Gloria’s roots in Miami’s Little Havana district, the limited-edition release called “Eighth Street” was developed in collaboration with Justin Andrews and blended by the team at El Titán de Bronze.
La Gloria Cubana empowered its fans to develop the brand’s latest limited edition release. Called the La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar, the new expression is named after a special group of cigar smokers that interact with the brand regularly both online through the LGC website and offline through La Gloria activations across the US.
Overall, the flavor profile of the La Gloria Cubana Criollo de Oro Toro was pretty boring. A typical profile from the brand that didn't bring anything unique with the hybrid wrapper. The price point isn't anything crazy, but not something that I think brings value. Not a cigar I'd see myself coming back to.
La Gloria Cubana presents “Criollo de Oro,” a new, limited edition collection named after the hybrid varietal developed by crossing two Cuban seed tobaccos: the versatile Criollo ’98 with the rare Cuban seed Pelo de Oro.
The La Gloria Cubana Spirit of the Lady Toro is a brand new portfolio spin off, the same mediocre cigar. This flavor profile is quintessential to how I feel about most cigars from General (especially blended by in house blenders); highly earthy, unbalanced and a bit spiky in nature. No offense to their current blending team(s), as I'm sure the marketing strength of the cigar brands are strong, but I just want better blends.
La Gloria Cubana will debut “Medio Tiempo,” a distinctive, three-cigar collection shipping to retailers on May 4. Medio Tiempo is a full-time addition to the La Gloria Cubana lineup, and comes on the heels of “Spirit of the Lady,’ a limited-edition release that launched in March.
La Gloria Cubana, the original boutique brand, has created a special five-country blend that celebrates the masterful artisans of the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic. Called “Spirit of the Lady,” the limited edition collection will be available exclusively at U.S. cigar shops beginning on March 2 and includes two box-pressed vitolas made from the finest aged tobaccos.
The La Gloria Cubana Spanish Press Robusto started out interesting with flavors of cedar, pepper, spices, leather, chocolate, citrus and earth. Unfortunately, between the burn issues and the average performance through the middle and last thirds, the overall experience ended up as quite forgettable.
The La Gloria Cubana Esteli Robusto is an interesting cigar with a flavor profile that has distinct evolution through each third. Reaching an overall flavor strength of medium-full at times, you're treated to earth, leather, toasted notes, spices, creme brulee, chocolate and baking spices.
