In order to tackle the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Estelí Maduro cigar, you first have to brush up on the brand's ancestry. This includes the explosion of the La Gloria Cubana brand during the cigar boom of the mid '90s (led by Hall-of-Famer Ernesto Perez-Carrillo), the followup release of the Serie R brand (known for helping to kickoff today's style of extra full-bodied cigars), and the eventual sub-series release of the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Estelí (the first LGC made in Nicaragua).
With the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Estelí Maduro, the cigar is a dark-wrapped variant of the latter-mentioned sub-sub-brand (if there can be such a thing). The cigars, like their predecessor, are rolled in Nicaragua at the STG Estelí factory. With the fiery tendencies of Nicaraguan soil being the overriding theme, it's no surprise that LGC Serie R Estelí Maduro cigar makes use of Nicaraguan leaf exclusively throughout the binder and filler. These rich tobaccos are then finalized in a dark Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper.
