Renowned for its beefy ring gauges and full-flavored taste, La Gloria Cubana Serie R is one of the El Credito Cigar Factory’s hottest-selling offerings. Serie R boasts an amazing spiciness and powerful, refined flavor which comes from a proprietary blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos. When balanced with a Nicaraguan binder and a wonderfully aged Ecuadoran wrapper (Connecticut Broadleaf wraps the Maduro cigars), La Gloria Cubana Serie R’s exquisite taste captures a place in the smoking in the repertoires of today’s tenured smokers who demand the ultimate in flavor.
Packed in dark mahogany, cabinet-style boxes replete with gold inlay logos and lettering, Serie R cigars deliver their extra-bold bouquet as soon as the lid is lifted. Their full-bodied flavor comes from a special blend of long filler Dominican and Nicaraguan leaf, superb Nicaraguan binder and a wonderfully aged and extra-flavorful Ecuadoran wrapper. The result is a rich, full-flavored smoke unmatched by any other cigar.
In 1999, the team at La Gloria Cubana decided they wanted to bring something special to their many La Gloria Cubana customers. They subsequently introduced the full-bodied, fuller ring gauge, Serie R Nos. 4, 5, 6 and 7 which have been joined by other perennially-popular offerings.
