Review Notes: Althout I was still not all that impressed with the flavor of this cigar...at least not for a LGC, the one I just smoked did a better job at keeping my interest over time. The flavors were smooth until the end where I finaly got some of that old LGC strength that have made these famous. All in all, it is a good cigar that could be great with a better blend.

Review Notes: La Gloria Cubana are usually a safe bet to be high quality and have lots of flavor, without a super-premium price. Well, we hit 2 out of 3 here. The price was right, and the look and overall construction of this cigar was nearly flawless...love marudos anyway :) The flavor is where they lost me. Oh, it was fine at first, but took on a grassy flavor and stayed that way to the end. I have been educated to interpret "grassy" as "underaged tobacco". The demand for La Gloria cigars seems to have pushed the line into over-production..which raises their profits and lowers the cigar quality. It won't be long and they will see that people will turn to other cigars. If it is cheap, and tastes that way..well, you get the point. As far as having to stick a cigar away in my personal humidor to properly age/condition it before I smoke it....well....that is bunk. A good cigar should be ready to smoke the day you buy it. Although I know first hand that some cigars do improve with storage time in a well maintained humidor, it should never be necessary on the consumer's part. La Gloria and other cigar makers need to be sure that the consumer does not have to be come a secondary aging/curing step in their cigar making processes. I for one will go elsewhere.
