"La Gloria Cabana series R madura"
I ordered two boxes of these cigars and upon receipt, I found that the cigars were the worst, very worst cigars I have ever smoked. they we very nicely presented,a beautiful oily, apparently well made cigar, but once lit, they were very bitter to the taste, did not burn evenly, and were on the whole, the worst cigar I have ever smoked. I am not one to send them back so I left the other box for a month in order to see if they would improve with a little of down time. NO they did not. I am very disappointed in LGC in putting such trash on the market as I have always enjoyed LGC in the past. Such a bad cigar should be banned from their great name.

"Really not good!"
Sadly they fell short of a premium cigar. Bitter taste with plastic overtones. Hard to get a puff from this cigar, it's rolled too tight with many plugs and gaps. Heats up too fast and goes out often.
A true struggle to smoke, can t really be enjoyed.
Very mild and nowhere near full bodied. I feel as though its a gimmick to bring newness back to a failing brand.
All 18 cigars had the same issues!

"Medium Bodied Natural Sweetness"
This cigar is a medium bodied cigar that displays a mild sweetness of raisins. The smoke is slightly airy and the draw is somewhat firm for my liking. It starts out with a notes of leather and dry tobacco and transitions into a slight nuttiness with the natural sweetness being consistent. Medium oily finish. Overall smooth with pepper notes only in the first 1/4.
