Cigar news: I have been smoking Glorias since 1992 when they first made a splash. Mostly enjoyed the whole line as the price point, quality and flavor have bee first rate. General Cigar and Gloria Cubana have just released a limited-edition smoke called, Corojo De Oro Toro.
As described by the press release, the wrapper consists of ” a rich Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, and a blend of Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano and Nicaraguan Ometeope.” Try saying that 3 times fast.
Priced at $10.49, 6 x50. Received gratis from General Cigar for review.
Very smooth from the onset wit a flavor profile of orange, mild spice, and maple. The burn was consistent throughout the smoke , though I did have a bit of an uneven burn due to the wind outside. Not the fault of the cigar though.
As we smoked on, the pepper/spice became more dominant but not overpowering the other flavors. We added a coco influence at the final third which was a nice addition to the overall taste of the cigar.
My final thoughts: Flavor was consistent and plentiful, never harsh ,4.0 out of 5
Burn and construction : As described above, no real issues or problems, it was a good looking smoke and I really dug the band. 4.0 out of 5.
Burned well, medium grey ash.
This is good cigar for a lazy afternoon as you need to sit outside and enjoy it.
