LA GLORIA CUBANA SERIES R NO. 4

This was a pretty good cigar, with a not so complex palette of flavors.  It was really smooth but mostly not rememberable.  I found it to be an average cigar that really pales in comparison to the inferior lines made by the same label.  However, the draw and burn were great and the flavor that was present was good.  It was made of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler and an Ecuadorian wrapper and was sized at 4 7/8×52.  Overall, I’ll rate this one at an even B.

LA GLORIA CUBANA RESERVA FIGURADOS FELICIAS

Wow.  This little Figurado had lots of complex flavor and aroma.  Nicely sized for a quick smoke at 4.65×49, you’ll wish it lasted longer.  I smoked this one down to the nub and was sad to put it down.  At the beginning, the cigar gave a distinctive orange peel flavor mixed with very smooth spice and nut.  As the cigar progressed, the flavor became leathery and cedary.  There was also a wonderful leather aroma noted.  The draw was great, not too tight as many Figurado’s are for me, and the burn was pretty even.  The cigar never warmed up, which was a surprise based on how fast I sucked it down!  Overall, I’ll rate this one at an even A.
