Rabito de Cochino - a new twist to La Gloria Cubana.
La Gloria Cubana has long been one of the industry's premier, full-bodied cigars. This legendary name is synonymous with flavor and quality. However, Rabito de Cochino takes things up a notch, using ample Nicaraguan ligero inside a traditional Lancero format to yield layers of satisfying flavors.
Named for its Cuban-style 'pig tail' head, La Gloria Cubana Rabito de Cochino redefines the Lancero size. Thick and leathery Ecuadorian wrappers conceal a bold blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers to promote a full-flavored charisma only LGC can provide. A rich, hearty profile swarms the palate, dusting the taste buds with spicy, woodsy notes complementing the deep, Cuban-esque core perfectly. Delicious with every puff, LGC Rabito de Cochino is no doubt a classic in the making.
In addition to a spot among the world's Top 25 Cigars, LGC Rabito de Cochino received a well-deserved, 92-point rating, noting: "The Rabito de Cochinos are balanced and elegant, with substantial woody notes, followed by hints of cocoa and toast."
This is not the best looking cigar but the burn is straight the construction fantastic ample smoke and the flavors are great I will be keeping these stocked I only wished the cigar could be purchased without the fancy boxing they would be a lot less to purchase. Thank You CI

This guy is sweet to the taste at first draw, then elegantly moves to spicy middle and smokes longer than it looks. Hard to beat at the price and is unique to most humidors that often are filled with big and full smoke sticks. Great for mid-day and pre-dinner, then smoke a fatty after dinner!
