La gloria cubana serie r
La gloria cubana serie r is an exquisite example of the Regional Edition Cigars specially released by Habanos. These Cuban cigars have been highly anticipated by many aficionados since their announcement earlier this year.
La gloria cubana serie r esteli Regional Edition España made exclusively for Spain that is limited to 50’000 boxes and dates to 2018. Has all the characteristic La Gloria Cubana tastes as well as the extra flavour of an aged cigar.
The La Gloria Cubana Serie D No.5 is quite small in size when held in your hand, covered in a medium reddish-brown wrapper that features a small amount of noticeable tooth to it.
There is almost no oil that I can see and the cigar is extremely spongy when squeezed, with enough give that I would not be surprised if it causes issues when actually smoking it. Aroma from the wrapper is a combination of strong peanut shells, barnyard, hay, sweet vanilla, creamy cedar and earth, while the cold draw brings flavors of distinct cinnamon, tart citrus, bitter dark chocolate, cedar and slight fruity sweetness.
Starting out, the La gloria cubana serie r esteli features a multitude of flavors, with none overtly stronger than the rest, at least at this juncture: sweet hay, earth, cocoa nibs, espresso beans, cinnamon, cedar and a slight floral. Although there is a touch of salt on my lips, it is gone almost before I can recognize it,
While a distinct almond paste sweetness on the retrohale which combines nicely with some white pepper that is also present. Construction-wise, the draw is excellent after a simple straight cut, and while the burn is far from perfect, it is also far from needing to be touched up. Smoke production is a bit thin—albeit well within normal limits— and the overall strength is quite mild, ending the first third well short of the medium mark.
