Utilizing a dark, oily Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a rich Connecticut Broadleaf binder, and a well-aged blend of robust Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers, La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Obelisco delivers a bold, full-bodied flavor. But the real beauty lies in its special shape - an unusual pyramid-style vitola that's modeled to resemble a famous Dominican monument. And when this blend is crafted in this shape, the results are nothing but impressive. Complex, to the say the least, with notes of earth, cedar, pepper, cream, and coffee, the Obelisco is truly impressive.
Further adding to the goodness, La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Obelisco comes gorgeously presented in a very unique half circle-shaped box.
La Gloria Cubana Artesanos de Obelisco received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "A petit belicoso that is box-pressed towards the foot. Earthy and wood, the cigar takes on leather and pepper notes before a mineral finish."
This is by far my favorite short smoke. 1) it looks cool, there isn't another cigar that looks like it, 2) the history behind it is awesome, and 3) it is super tasty! I like to have this cigar handy at parties for people who can't smoke a full robusto or bigger size cigar.
