La Gloria Cubana Artesanos De Tabaqueros Cigar Review

This 6×50 stick offers dual wrappers and the band at the foot end marking the transition between the first and 2nd third with connecticut and sumatran wrappers. It has a mottled rustic apperance, with a couple large veins, several smaller and a smooth firm feel. The aroma is a slight barnyard with a smooth tobacco. First light reveals a big pepper blast with deep earth smooth aged tobacco flavors. It’s a medium-full body with a perfect draw and thick smoke with a long peppery finish. The first third brings a mild black pepper zing with smooth creamy oily smoke and smooth tobacco flavors. The ash hold on to the wrapper slit point, falling off in a big solid chunk. When the sumatra wrapper takes over you get a nice buttery leather, dropping the pepper completely and the finish get shorter and cleaner. The last two thirds continue the leather adding a touch of licorice sweetness, the smoke gets thicker and richer leaving a buttery oily mouthfeel. Thank you very much to General Cigar Company for generously sending this in for review, I greatly appreciate it!

    This cigar has gained my interest over the last several months and was glad to see that you reviewed it. Interested to experience that transition from the Connecticut to the Sumatra. Like you , the Connecticut wrapper is my least favorite as I also like more flavor than it usually offers but still, sounds interesting. I will keep an eye out for these next time I visit the local shops. Thanks for the review.

    Love the reviews, Bryan. I’m still fairly new to smoking but enjoy the experience of trying to find the “perfect” smoke. Your reviews help guide which ones might make the wish list and others that don’t. I’ve checked out all of your reviews to date so am always excited to catch the next. Check your site every day. Keep up the good work!!

    I was just just turned on to his smoke today. It was a very interesting stick. The Connecticut wrapper is not your typical wrapper. For one it is darker than most and a little more robust than most. Great taste. The draw and the burn was fantastic. The transition to the Sumatran was interesting, a little bolder but still remained smooth. I like a little more body than this smoke but over all it was very good. As it has been said before, I would smoke this stick again.
