lagloria We are kicking off this week with another profile on Today's focus is on La Gloria Cubana, so let's see what this successful brand has to offer in terms of its various cigar lines.

La Gloria Cubana


The original La Gloria Cubana hit the streets of the Little Havana section of Miami back in 1968. The brand's inaugural line helped build a solid reputation, since it offered a boldness that reminiscent of the old Cuban style cigars. The large Cuban population of Little Havana welcomed the line with open arms, and it was a great beginning for what would become a longstanding member of the cigar industry.

Despite its success, the original blend was tweaked in 1980 in an effort to make it resemble the homeland's cigars even more, as well as to add extra richness and flavor. The adjusted blend has remained to this day, and it characterized by a filler of tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The binder is also Nicaragua, and the wrapper comes as either a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro or an Ecuadorian Sumatra leaf.

The decision of La Gloria Cubana to change the original blend has certainly paid off. The cigar has earned top ratings from popular cigar publications, which has also allowed it to become quite popular with cigar lovers across the globe. If you enjoy cigars that are rich and full-bodied, you can't go wrong with the original La Gloria Cubana. The line is offered in a plethora of sizes, ranging from the tiny 4 5/16 x 32 Glorias Petit to the immense 9 x 49 Crown Imperial.

Artesanos de Miami

The Artesanos de Miami line could be seen as an exhibition of the art of cigar making. This is another La Gloria Cubana line that has garnered praise from critics, and it's safe to say that some of that could be attributed to its construction. Only the best torcedors from Cuba are allowed to partake in the rolling of the cigar to ensure quality. Like other La Gloria Cubana selections, the Artesanos de Miami is made at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Miami.

The cigar features a filler blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos and an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder. Completing the composition is a reddish Nicaraguan wrapper. Medium to full-bodied in strength, the Artesanos de Miami is described as a cigar that goes great with a glass of wine or your spirit of choice. The cigar offers a unique flavor as well as plenty of spice. Thanks to the highly skilled torcedors, you can also expect excellent burn qualities. The Artesanos de Miami comes in five sizes.
