La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiales cigars was 8 years in the making. Team La Gloria cross-bred a Connecticut seed and grew it in Honduras. Despite the wrapper's golden patina, the blend is brash in its full flavor, engaging the entire palate. The double binder of bold Nicaraguan & Mexican leaf is further enhanced by Nicaraguan & Dominican ligero and an additional peppering of proprietary Nicaraguan and Dominican leaf.

The visual of this cigar grabbed me - the uniform natural wrapper, and the elegant retro-looking band with the elegant lady. The 7x49 size is reminiscent of Cuba. Upon smoking, I found some nice positives: mellow, cedery flavors, a solid ash, a sharp burn, and a long finish. A box purchase is tempting, and the price is reasonable.less
