A little over ten years ago, Ernesto Perez-Carrillo sold his La Gloria Cubana brand to General Cigar and eventually set off to create a new company, so it seemed that his relationship with the brand he built up may be over. But LGC approached Ernesto with the idea of making a new cigar for the at his factory, and so La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reserva was born.
He started with one of his favorite wrappers, an oily Ecuadorian Sumatra capa that he paired up with a Nicaraguan Sumatra binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers. Available in only three sizes, these cigars feature notes of cedar, leather, toast, and cocoa, all tied together with a buttery creaminess. There's a nice dose of pepper here, too, which builds gradually throughout the long, slow, smoke. The flavors weave in and out making this a constantly changing experience that you won't soon forget. So if you want to try one of the most interesting cigars in recent years, lay in some La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reservas.
