Wrapper: Ecuadoran. Filler: Dominican, Nicaraguan. Binder: Nicaraguan. Country of Manufacture: Dominican Republic. Factory Name: El Credito. -- The history: Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, Cuban Senator and tobacco grower, fled Cuba in 1959, taking with him the secret of La Gloria Cubana cigars. He began making them in the heart of Little Havana in Miami, Florida in 1968, where their bold taste made them a local favorite. Then, in 1980, his son, Ernesto Jr. blended a unique combination of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos to make La Gloria Cubana even more full-flavored and richer tasting. His efforts paid off, when, in 1992, Cigar Aficionado recognized the superiority of La Gloria Cubana, giving it a 90 rating. Today, produced in both Miami and the Dominican Republic, La Gloria Cubana is one of the most sought after cigars in the world. The cigar: Once Little Havana's best kept secret, La Gloria Cubana has become a favorite of cigar smokers everywhere. Available in 23 sizes, in both Natural and Maduro, La Gloria Cubana's special blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan filler and binder become one with its beautifully aged Ecuadoran wrapper to deliver the full, rich flavor that is its trademark. The experience: Rich, Flavorful, Full-bodied. These words perfectly describe the La Gloria Cubana's taste experience.
And these are beautiful little cigars. My longtime favorites with nice construction and burn and a wonderful flavor! You can’t go wrong with these; pick up a box of 30(!) today!

First off, I'm comfortable with my masculinity, so I don't feel the need to smoke a stogie as big around as a fat girl's ankles or as long as... well, you know. That being said, the La Gloria Cubana Hermoso is a 4 1/2 x 48 spark plug that is a consistently rich blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers with a consistently even burn packed inside a tasty Ecuadorian wrapper with a consistently smooth draw and a medium-to-full bodied flavor. The Hermoso is consistently consistent. And who wants surprises in their box of smokes? From the first one all the way to the last the Hermoso satisfies with no left over masculine insecurity or liar's guilt.

My go-to daily smoke. Extremely consistent tobacco with variations in the wrapper. Even burning and flavorful; just the right length for a 30-40 minute smoke. I only wish that they all were the same roll tightness, some are tighter than others, and I really hate to have to work to have a smoke.

This cigar is basically a smaller version of the La Gloria R Serie. If you like that cigar but don't have the time for a long smoke this is the way to go.Full bodies and consistently good.
