Ordered a 5 pack and they arrived fresh. I would call these medium spicy/woody flavor with a smooth draw and even burn. Will hold an inch of ash but not much more. Very pleasant one hour smoke as delivered. Will put the rest in the humidor for a month before trying another. Good smoke for the beginner as well as the experienced.
Not buying anymore of this brand. Starting to like Rafael Gonzalez Honduras Churchill. Try these for next order. What happened Guilded Age??
One of my favorite cigars if they are not dry.
wrapper is dark and taste strong for a cigar rated medium strength
Excellent appearance, consistency and draw. Burn was consistent throughout, very well made cigar with the taste you would expect of a La Gloria Cubana
Like the Ideal Woman - Excellently wrapped, perfectly constructed, wonderful taste and aroma, and a smooth and even burn to the end. Can t wait to have another!!
This cigar is full of tasting note surprises from beginning to end. It reminded me of the experience I had with the CAO Pilon. A must try for sure!
Great smoke and you really can t beat the price. This is one of my go-to everyday cigars.
This is one of my favorite ones. It has a lot of flavor its smooth, for me i would enjoy it like an every day cigar.
The La Gloria Gilded Age is one of the best Cigars with Coffee or A Single Malt Scotch. I agree with the other gentleman that this rating on this cigar was screwed 89 to 90 plus cigar.
The 73 rating on the Gilded Age Churchill is skewed because of a small sample of raters, one of which literally skewered the cigar. I found the Churchill as fine a stick as the Toro, which I received free with three different orders. I subsequently ordered the Test Flight, and found that the Robusto and Magnum round out a magnificent family of smokes. A box of Magnums is in transit as I write this. GET SOME!!!
I have been around long enough to remember the Miami-made La Gloria Churchills and their robust leathery smoke that often got complements from passers-by. More recently, they have taken on a different character overall and I've been trying to find that flavor again. La Gloria Gilded Age Cigars meet that goal with some surprises of their own. Nicely constructed with an even draw, the first flavor to hit the palate is rich scent- it's hard to describe easily, but it's something akin to a new-car smell and even a bit of gunpowder! As the cigar draws down, a very clear leather note emerges and stays for the ride, all the way down to the end. Overall, very nice burn, medium to medium-strong bodied and complex. It's my new special occasion smoke.
