"An earthy, slightly coffee flavored Maduro but very one-note. It became quite harsh likely due to the need to relight so many times. The construction and burn were very lacking. At a budget stick price, this would not be an awful choice but at a higher price point, the construction would make this an absolute no-buy for me." -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
Newly formed The Forged Cigar Company, distributor of La Gloria Cubana, has announced La Gloria Cubana Spirit of the Lady. This Limited Edition cigar is a five-country blend that honors the masterful artisans at the El Credito Cigar Factory in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
"I feel like this is a great stick if it wasn't for the construction problems. The opening light cedar and floral notes seemed to be leading into some nice buttery leather and nuttiness. Sadly, I only got hints of what could have been. The fact I kept having to put fire to this cigar lead to some strong pepper and smokiness and a super dried-out palate. I would certainly revisit this blend in hopes of a better result. " -Lauren S. (Lauren S.)
The Forged Cigar Company has announced a new line in the La Gloria Cubana brand, Criollo de Oro." This new limited edition line gets its name from the hybrid varietal developed by crossing two Cuban seed tobaccos: the versatile Criollo ’98 with the rare Cuban seed Pelo de Oro.

"Magnificent cigar. I'm not a boxed press enthusiast, but I really enjoyed this one despite the format. The flavors nailed a lot of my personal preferences featuring loads of creaminess, leather; ranging from soft and supple to bold and aggressive, and throughout offered a balanced sweetness. Additional notes of mineral and salt played against the sweet creaminess nicely. " -John I. (John I.)
