"In the best of ways, this smoke had a lot going on! Not only did the abundant lineup of flavors balance and complement each other perfectly, they were nothing but pleasant from start to finish. In addition, a handful of transitions kept my palate intrigued and engaged without making me think too much which always adds to my enjoyment. Rounding out a superb experience was a near-perfect draw, trouble-free burn, and a decent nicotine buzz by the very end. Needless to say, this cigar checked off almost all of the boxes for me and I will certainly be seeking it out once it is revealed. " -Noah S. (Noah)

"Overall this turned out to be an exceptional cigar. The flavors did not transition much with the exception of the coffee that came and went and came back. The creaminess of the smoke and the temperature made for an extremely enjoyable cigar. The strength and body never climbed any higher than mild to medium, but once again, with the smoke texture of the cigar, it made for an overall very enjoyable experience." -Angel M. (Angel)

"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.)
"Despite having to battle a wonky burn throughout, this stick was nothing short of incredible in my book! The complexity was never over the top and the transitions just made sense. Salty and sweet flavor profiles danced a beautiful tango back and forth across my palate for the entirety of the smoke which made for a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable experience. The strength and complexity of this stick remained a solid medium from start to finish which would make it a sound choice for anyone wanting to graduate to a bolder flavor profile without being punched in the face by strength and body. 10 out of 10 will be seeking this one out to round out my normal smoking rotation." -Noah S.

The company wanted to make this brandto honor La Gloria’s roots in Miami’s Little Havana district, where El Titán de Bronze Cigar Factory is located.

For its latest release, La Gloria Cubana turned to its fans to create the brand’s latest limited edition release. The La Gloria Cubana Society Cigar gets its name from a special group of cigar smokers that interact with the brand regularly both online through the LGC website and offline through La Gloria activations across the US.
