La Gloria Cubana Serie R Esteli No. 60 Cigar Review

This 6×60 stick features a dark brown firmly packed butter soft wrapper with minimal veins, tight seams, large double cap and pungent dry cedar aroma. First light reveals a bit of a snug draw with good smoke output showing mild-medium body flavors of a cool, oily and smooth slightly sweet leather with a slick earthy finish. The first third brings an oily cinnamon, cedar and slight smooth pepper, all of which hang around the long finish. Body is only at a medium. Starting the 2nd third 40 minutes in, construction is flawless, the ash falls in a solid chunk and flavors are unchanged. The last third warms up a bit, still at a solid medium body but bringing the cinnamon to the front with a deeper general earthy core replacing the leather. Most of the pepper dies off just leaving a smooth oily finish. Ending at 1:25 strength remained low all the way down. Thank you La Gloria Cubana for providing me this sample!

    Nice review and looking forward to trying them. Local B&M has received them but haven’t priced them and put them out yet. Maybe tomorrow and from your review will try. Maybe the 54 RG..

    Definitely want to try both this, which I know a few places that should be carrying, and the LGC Black that they released to the online retailers. Both look beautiful and sound delicious!

    I just had a Serie R last week. It was a good smoke. I will have to check these out as well.

    I was looking at the R Black version but didn’t pull the trigger because they were so new. I will look at them again when I need more cigars. Nice review Bryan.

  • Don

    I like the “R”, as well. Most of their cigars, though, I like.
