LGC undoubtedly helped to kickstart the Cigar Boom of the early 90s, and to this day, they're still making waves. La Gloria Cubana Spanish Press is rolled in the El Credito area of the General Cigar Dominicana factory in the Dominican. The cigar's name derives from the process used to create its pressed format, a technique using trays with dividers, into which each cigar is placed immediately after rolling.
“This method eliminates air pockets to deliver an optimal draw and output of smoke, resulting in an enhanced smoking experience,” said Yuri Guillen, GCC's production manager, in a press release.Cedar, toast, and a spicy appeal on the finish round out the flavor profile of Spanish Press. That's thanks to its Nicaragua Jalapa wrapper, Mexican San Andres binder, and four fillers: Brazilian Mata Fina, Nicaragua Jalapa, and Dominican Olor and Piloto Cubano. Few blends offer the consistency of La Gloria - so if you're in search of a dependable, full-bodied smoke, your buck can easily stop here. Get yours today!

Great smoke for the price. All in on a great stick !
Great cigar gor the price. Wonderful burn, very flavorful.
The wrapper and roll on these cigars is very appealing, and the hyped-up spanish press gives it some sense of uniqueness and quality. Not a perfect burn, but manageable, with medium to full-bodied notes of spice, dried fruit, dark woods, and some cocoa. Strength stays relatively balanced until the final third where it ramps up.
Love the Spanish Press. A nice medium smoke with a subtle sweetness in the wrapper. Highly recommend it.
I read a lot about this cigar and watched online reviews before purchasing. I pulled the trigger and was not disappointed. This is a rich, leathery, earthy, cedar-forward smoke that is on the full side of medium. It s box press is subtle, and it burns and draws well. It s a hearty cigar that deserves a try.
Another outstanding stick from La Gloria Cubana
I ve long been a fan of La Gloria cigars, but the Spanish Press well exceeded my expectations. This is a well-made, smooth full body cigar that delivers on taste from the first puff. And thus is a cigar you can smoke until there is nothing left to hold. And the price is right.
Wanted to add some new choices to my humidor. I usually enjoy a mild to medium cigar once everyday in the evening. So I was looking to mix in a few medium brands and tried this one from La Gloria Cubana. First I have to say Famous Smoke always gets me super fresh cigars. This one was a great smoke. It burned great no set backs. Tastes were chocolate and never too much spice on the tongue. A flavorful and consistant smoke till the very end. I was a bit sad when it did come to and end at about an hour in, it was that good. Good burn. No need to relight. Good draw and great smoke output. Got the five pack and will keep these on hand from here on.
I don t get the great reviews on this stick !! It is absolutely the worst !!! Burns terribly uneven, and gets hot ,, I thought maybe the first one was just a bad one , but after 4 more they are all goin in the trash !!! Never again !! I would have thought much better with it being a La Gloria ,,, Wrong !!!
