For decades, the La Gloria Cubana Serie R cigar has dazzled the palates of those seeking more from their cigar-smoking sessions. The legendary Serie R was the brainchild of Master Blender Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, helping to pioneer the modern trends of fuller-bodied cigars and large ring gauges.
With the Serie R now firmly cemented as a staple for enthusiasts, La Gloria Cubana has now expanded the brand's range, introducing a Mexican wrapper to the line for the first time with the La Gloria Cubana Serie S cigar. Like its predecessor, the LGC Serie S cigar is rolled at the boutique-minded El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
What does the La Gloria Cubana Serie S cigar taste like?
Taking on a familiar look and feel, the La Gloria Cubana Serie S cigars have a bit more grit to their profile. The blend boasts a dark Mexican San Andrés wrapper, which surrounds a Nicaraguan binder and fillers of Nicaraguan and Dominican leaves. This amounts to a medium-full body, sinking into the palate with flavors of mineral-rich soil, leather, bittersweet espresso, and smoky campfire.
