LA GLORIA CUBANA BRAND HISTORY

La Gloria Cubana originated under the expertise of blending legend Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, whose family roots can be traced back to cigar-making in Cuba for generations. La Gloria Cubana cigars gained immense popularity during the early days of the Cigar Boom of the 1990s when demand for premium, handcrafted cigars soared exponentially. The advent of Cigar Aficionado and the publication’s insightful cigar reviews and ratings served to promote both new and historic brands to an eager consumer audience. Young brands like La Gloria benefitted immensely from the burgeoning focus connoisseurs placed on boutique alternatives to traditional Cuban-legacy labels well-known in the premium U.S. cigar market. In the spring of 1993, a high rating for La Gloria Cubana Wavell and a Cigar Aficionado article spotlighting Perez-Carrillo’s family-style cigar operation catapulted the brand’s sales to stunning new levels.

As La Gloria Cubana cigar production grew within a modest, Miami-based factory, demand for skilled cigar-rollers also increased. Many competitors looked to Perez-Carrillo’s factory to poach experienced cigar-makers, due the brand’s visible reputation. And, having been at production capacity in Miami for some time, circumstances necessitated the company’s expansion with an advanced operation in the Dominican Republic. Following years of rapid growth, Perez-Carrillo sold La Gloria Cubana to global conglomerate Swedish Match, the parent company of General Cigar in the late 1990s, but stayed on with the company as the brand’s master-blender and ambassador for more than 10 years. Today, La Gloria Cubana is a staple in the General Cigar portfolio, alongside iconic brands like Macanudo and Cohiba.

LA GLORIA CUBANA BRAND OVERVIEW

Although the original La Gloria Cubana blend has been around for decades, La Gloria Cubana Serie R is equally known as the brand’s flagship cigar. The original line presents select Nicaraguan and Dominican long-filler tobaccos beneath an Ecuador Sumatra Natural wrapper, or a glimmering Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. The blend has proven a juggernaut for the company in its decades-long span. Serie R is drafted from a similar equation of Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers beneath either an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, or a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro. What distinguishes Serie R, in many respects, is the format. Many fans attach thick, cool-burning ring-gauges and hearty, medium-bodied flavors to the handsomely packaged cigars.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of the original Serie R, a handful of contemporary line extensions exist, including La Gloria Cuban Serie R Black and La Gloria Cubana Serie R Estelí. Serie R Black delivers a full-bodied profile in an oily Nicaraguan puro replete with spicy notes of earth and coffee beans in a handful of larger ring sizes. Serie R Estelí also reflects a bold, all-Nicaraguan profile available in a regionally distinct Nicaraguan wrapper varietal.

La Gloria Cubana Serie N is drafted from a jet-black Nicaraguan Oscuro wrapper leaf over a potent amalgam of all-Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. Semi-sweetened notes of dark chocolate and black cherries stimulate the palate with a medium to full-bodied intensity. Additionally, the cigar-rollers patiently craft the letter ‘N’ in a lighter-colored wrapper varietal on every cigar to add a unique, handcrafted branding element.

The well-known and widely distributed La Gloria Cubana portfolio offers a number of traditional and trendy product lines. Indulge in an established, big name brand, considered a pioneering force in the boutique cigar craze of decades past.
