Many cigar smokers have taken notice of this cigar. The sheer popularity of this cigar almost guarantees that most cigar enthusiasts have heard of it, if not smoked a box of them. The "R" is the best-selling cigar from General Cigar's El Credito Factory in the Dominican Republic, and if you've smoked one, you'll understand why Ernesto Perez Carrillo's creation has been so popular since 1999.
The Nicaraguan Ligero and Dominican Olor leaf filler is complemented by a Nicaraguan binder in La Gloria Cubana Serie R. You can choose between two robust wrappers: an Ecuadoran grown Sumatra or a Connecticut Broadleaf maduro.
When it comes to this stogie, the two words that come up the most are bold and bolder. The smoke is peppery with hints of sweetness, leather, and coffee, and it comes in plenty thanks to the line's large ring gauges. La Gloria Cubana Serie R is a cigar for those who want a strong smoke with a lot of complexity.
