The La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli Cigars
The La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli; a new journey for this time honored brand. The focus from the La Gloria Cubana team was to blend a full bodied cigar using untapped fields and obscure aging barns where great new flavors await. And on a mountainside high above the Jalapa Valley floor, that’s where their journey for a new La Gloria Cubana began, when they found rare Jalapa leaf that practically begged them to create great things.
La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli is comprised of full bodied top priming Jalapa Sol wrapper and rounded out by a combination of visos and ligeros tobaccos from Nicaragua. The cigars are also rolled in the town that bears its name. The flavor profile of this cigar brings a mix of complex flavors; notes of cocoa, spice and pepper shine, with a natural sweetness and earthy finish. The thick oily wrapper provides a lot of flavor to this cigar, but don’t expect a razor sharp burn, the use of this wrapper is all about flavor than combustion. The La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli is a great edition to the La Gloria Cubana cigar family, the cigar was also named “Top 25 Cigars” in 2014 by Cigar Aficionado.
