"Love the large ring gage"
I have been smoking cigars since I was 16 and now im 54. I have always liked the larger ring gage and Maduro wrapper but sometimes they are hard to find. The La Gloria Cubana Serie R #6 is the best I have found. The construction and color are consistent, strength is full-bodied and full-flavored. The pricing is good for the quantity 24count per box instead of 20count in most other brands.

I have been smoking La Gloria Cubana for several years, I really enjoy the taste and strength but they quality has become very inconsistent over the past year. The burn is very bad on some #6's and ok on others out of the same box.

This is truly a great cigar...the length, ring size, construction and taste. I tried some after reading the reviews and now have a humidor stocked full. I prefer the maduro over the other. Much better flavor. The smoke is thick and aromatic. This has become my every evening smoke and if I miss an evening, then the next morning with my coffee and walking the dog. I've tried many others but will stick with this one!! Even prefer it over my other favorite, Ashton Cabinet #7.

"This bad-boy kicked my butt!"
This is simply a BEAIUTIFUL cigar! Black as the Ace of Spades and an absolute work of art. Fantastic taste but somewhat difficult to keep lit. The burn wasn't as even as I would have liked. About half way down it really KICKED IN....this is a real MAN's CIGAR! I smoke many stronger sticks and this bad boy finally kick my butt. BUT, it was a great smoke! Recommended for anyone who is "experienced"!

"A Smoker's Delight That Should Not Be Missed!"
Now I'm torn between EPC's El Rico Habano Rico Club & this full-bodied beauty as my favorite cigar! Ultra smooth and full of complex flavors, try this great stick with a spicy glass of premium rum! The stars never looked brighter!

"Smooth, Beautiful, and Delicious"
This cigar is an absolute must. A little more on the medium side, it packed a beautiful and complex melange of flavors. It was a true adventure to smoke as its characteristics changed in an enchanting way throughout. The construction is simply beautiful and the burn and ash were amazing. The draw was a little tight at first but a little massaging took care of that. I recommend this cigar to everyone of all different tastes. This should be a mainstay in every cigar afficiando's collection.

"a high performance smoke"
I can't belive I waited so long to try these cigars. I enjoy the regular L.G.C. but the Series R maduro is an incredible smoke. While on a walk with my wife I enjoyed one of these. I could not belive how smooth and rich it was. The dark oily wrapper was nice to look at and was flawless. The ash was firm and white, the draw was good, the construction was top notch. The flavor was "FULL" but very smooth with hints of espresso . All in all a great smoke for the money and I cant wait to have another.

This is not for the newbie. This cigar packs flavor, class, aroma,and construction all into one. It is strong and rich. A cigar to be smoked slowly. Big on flavor and aroma. To a heavy duty veteran cigar smoker, this is the great gift for a special occassion. This is one classy smoke
