The proprietary Criollo de Oro wrapper grown in the humid microclimate of Mao, Dominican Republic, is the starting point for La Gloria Cubana Criollo De Oro. The sungrown leaf matures with abundant natural oils in the island nation's picturesque Cibao Valley, contributing to the cigar's uniquely robust characteristics. La Gloria Cubana artisans have punctuated the rich Criollo de Oro wrapper with a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf binder and a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran filler tobaccos to achieve the finely balanced, medium-bodied profile. The end result is a provocative smoke that highlights the nuances of the wrapper by layering it with tobacco sweetness, earth, cedar, and citrus notes. The aroma is slightly spicy, which adds another dimension to the experience.
