Founded in 1885, La Gloria Cubana is a little known jewel amongst Habano brands; its name alone clearly defines its origin. During its more than 100 years of history, La Gloria Cubana has always attracted a circle of loyal fans, who are traditionally among the most knowledgeable smokers. During the 90's cigar-smoking revival, famous blender Ernesto Perez Carrillo re-edited the collection and made the brand one of the best-selling for full-bodied cigars. The brand is characterized by its elegant presentation, especially in the Medaille d’Or Series. All the vitolas are “Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made”. The blend, made from filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo region, is classified as medium and offers well-balanced nuances of taste and aroma.
