la gloria cubana was a classic case of getting too big, too fast. the quality and taste suffered for a number of years after expanding operations to the dominican republic. i quit smoking them for a time because the taste and quality dropped significantly (ernesto doesn't think so, but many of my friends were in agreement with my observation). anyways, i bought a bundle recently and some of the old greatness has been regained. it's rich, full bodied and a beauty to look at.
Charlemagne whet east or was it west? What rver it was let's be glad becuase we're smoking 7 1/4 of pure black delight!!!! And I can't be sure but my wife has a private eye out for these dark skined sweethearts. Lets talk about burn and ash and construction.... and sheep, keep following the herd....BAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!
I ve been smoking cigars since the 1970 s when the Tinder Box came to life. Of course in those days there was no Cigar Aficionado magazine and the Tinder Box catered to Pipe Smokers. However, they did have a few brands of cigars Hoya de Nicaragua and their own blend. Well time has come full circle. I was looking for a good old style Cuban Cigar and by chance back in 1993 I got a box of LGC Chalamagnes, DAMN what a great decision. I ve been smoking them since and Love everyone I smoke. So, if you want an old style Cuban Cigar and can t fly to Cuba buy a box of LGC s and enjoy, Have them with some strong Cuban Coffee.
This may be my favorite Cigar. I am fairly new to cigar smoking, but this right her.... WOW. It is smooth, mild, and overall tastes amazing. It burns well, and so far I am 3 for 3 out of the box. Fabulous Cigar. 10 out of 10
Corona Gorda Maduro is my favorite over a 20-yr period. Comparing the thousands of different brands smoked, none will ever compare to this. Price & quality are met in this cigar. I'm glad to know that some things refuse to be sold unless quality is there!
A must try cigar, one of the best out there!! I always have at least 5 of these in my humidor, never let me down in flavor construction or consistency!! If you have never tried one of these your missing out on one of the best cigars of all time.
This has to be or is, one of the finest cigars out there at the BEST price FAMOUS offers. Has an excellent taste you want to savor for a long time.USA.. you've given us a cigar to be proud of.
This is one of the best cigars I've ever smoked! It was much better than some more expensive cigars I've had in the past. This is my new favorite!
Just had one of these last night. I'm not a big Churchill or bigger size kind of guy because I usually don't have enough time to smoke a whole one. I made time last night now that the weather outside is getting nicer. It was definitely worth it. Nice and medium to full taste that at no time was overpowering. It was awesome with a glass of Shiraz.
I just received my first box of the La Gloria Cubana Charlemange Maduro and had three over the past weekend, whereas I normally woudl have one cigar. These cigars are truly delicious from smell to taste to appearance.I highly recommend these - it will be a truly enjoyable experience!
This is a beautifully constructed, delicious cigar. I would have given it straight 10's except that the burn was just short of perfect.
Definitely FULL flavored. Consistent on construction, razor sharp burn, effortless on the draw with peppery finish lasting down to the nub. I would call it medium-full on the strength. New smokers should definitely pull up a chair and sit down for this one. Wouldn t recommend it on an empty stomach
