Bought three of the La Gloria serie N maduros in Genoroso size (toro) locally. I am a maduro and corojo smoker predominately. Bought local just to try and will now buy in box from CI. Found the wrapper to be very toothy and a bit lumpy. Not a real issue. The smoke itself is delightful. It is full bodied with a bold and complex flavor. Bit of coffee, spice, rich tobacco flavors along with a fine maduro sweetness. I really like this stick. I have found that it difficult to find fault with any La Gloria, yet taste and choice is always subjective.
I enjoyed the Serie N Rojo very much, even though I generally prefer a bit larger ring. The slightly lumpy and veiny appearance does nothing to spoil the excellent flavour...I must try a larger one. The wee letter 'N' on the cigar is another nice touch, though it must add to the labour involved rolling the thing.
Excellent tasting cigar. If you like the Series R, then give this one a try, trust me you will not be disappointed.
I got 10 sticks bundles La Gloria Cubana Serie N Generoso (5.7" x 49) on Joe Cigar daily deal and I am glad that I did! The flavors remind me of my favorite cigars, Partagas Black lable.They(La Gloria Cubana Serie N) are not very complex flavored cigars, but they've got all the flavors that what maduro cigar lovers like me ask for...coffee, cocoa, pepper and slightly sweet..I will jump on it right away if CI does another Joe Cigar daily deal of these again!!
From the discussions I've had with others regarding the Serie N, it seems to be a "love-hate" kind of stick. That said, I loved it. Nice complexity, medium-to-full in strength, great flavor. It started off burning unevenly. I thought it might tunnel like most Serie Rs I've smoked, but it evened up. Well worth a try.
This line is my mainstay. Excellent flavor with notes of coffee, spice, with a slight sweetness. I would guess medium strength with bold character, One major complaint though. After sampling sticks from several local stores, I bought a box. None of these cigars burn evenly! One hell of an annoyance, to an otherwise great smoke. I guess I will just bear it, as they taste great!
I bought a box of the JSB size in early-2012. The flavor is AWESOME; however, I have just tried to smoke one more (my third to last one) and the burn has been very bad with every one so far. I am just hoping I have a bad box, but I have heard the same from friend of mine that has smoked them too. I tried to keep them at a lower humidity for a few weeks to see of that would help fix the burn problem (at 62% RH). but without success. Sorry to be so negative, but the bad burn has stopped me from buying a second box of these. However, these do burn (the JSB size) for a solid hour plus, and, again, the flavor is outstanding. Just my 10 cents worth.
Well, this is a keeper. Right off the truck; excellent construction, burn, flavor. This cigar has a deep profile and it ranks at the top. They have made a new winner. In my book a 95. Review on 12/15/2010.
had a glorioso. thought it a little smoother than the serie r. certainly a keeper
This is by far, one of my favorite cigars. I was a huge fan of the Serie R, and was excited to try this when it came out. Once I did, I was hooked. I always have some in the humidor, it's my go-to cigar, and for the CI price, you can't beat it. Well done to the LGC team!
I love these sticks. Sure they look a little ugly on average, with obvious veins and slight bulges everywhere, but the taste is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Tons of sweet, earthiness, slight warming pepper through the nose with a soft hay flavor backing it up to mellow the pepper out. Some sticks also present a deliciously sweet chocolaty taste on the pallet. I tend to smoke these guys while sipping straight water. If you swish the water around your mouth to cleanse it all out, the water itself is even slightly sweet and flavorful. I always have AT LEAST a box in my humi and make sure to hand these little gems out to all my friends who love them to death. Only gripe is I wish they were a bit cheaper, so i could have a box of each size!!!
I like the La gloria Cubana line so.....Not sure if I am missing something on this one, but the cigar had a real dry unflavorful taste a little like if I was smoking hay. Not that I have ever smoked hay to compare lol... Will try another one to see if this was just a one time thing. Wondering if anyone else has had the same experience. I love the cohiba black so.... maybe my expectations were to high. smokemifugotm..... -SM
The first time I held the hand of my elementary school crush, the first kiss, the first time I was allowed to take the car out on the town after getting my license…the first time I smoked a La Gloria Cubana Serie N. Your heart seems to skip a beat and you have to contain the urge to loudly profess to the world how happy you feel at that very moment. Need I say more?
This maduro has it all. Slow burn, full delicious flavor, and short finish that you don't taste a day later. If you are loyal to maduros this is a must have cigar in your humidor.
Tried one of these tonight and immediately fell in love. A deep, velvety smooth mouth-feel and hints of coffee and leather on the pallet. Very even burn with no touch-ups necessary. An inch of silvery soft ash was easily attainable. I will definitely be coming back for more!
Bought a box of the Glorioso and thought the box was cool. I had some of these from a local shop, and fell in love with the taste. Full bodied with wonderful tobacco taste, unlike any cigar I have had. The only gripe I have is the draw on a few of them was extremely hard. Other than that I loved them. I will buy another box!!
I love this stick. It's not my everyday, knock around stick. This is my dessert stick, the smoke I want after the 20 ounce bone in ribeye and loaded tater. Rare blend of tremendous flavor, but only medium strength. Goes great after dinner with bourbon and scotch. This is my favorite LGC and a perfect example of a $4 smoke that trumps a lot of $10 sticks.
Very nice cigar. Robusto isn't my favorite size, but these were a good smoke. I received these at promotion prices and I only had 10 sticks. I hated to use them up and I savored each one. I will buy again.
This is my favorite cigar. They have a rich, smooth, creamy flavor. They do have a slightly grainy, imperfect appearance, but every one I've had smokes nice and even and maintains a steady, smooth taste all the way through. Just love them.
I got a hold of 5 of these in a 40 cigar sampler. Was I ever amazed I don't usually go for the darker shade cigars but this little number has changed my mind, I got the Generoso 5.7x49 it was great smoke right out of the box great draw, ash, flavor everything I expect out of a primo cigar. The construction looks a little rough but it holds together better than some more expensive sticks, the flavor holds down to the nub. So thanks to C.I. I will be trying more, maybe a larger size.
Of the Serie N and this may be a shocker to some but, for me, the flavor bomb is the Rojo. (double corona) The first time I had it was it came from a sampler and it stayed in my humidor for several months. I finally decided to try it, but when I went to get it out of the humidor and took a sniff, it took my breath away! It smelled like sweet goodness! Like a freshly baked pastry or cake! I know weird, but I swear that's what it smelled like. Well, the smell is what I tasted. Beautiful sweet cocoa, coffee, molasses and creme! It was the craziest experience! I was smoking dessert! I couldn't put it down and it still had that great flavor from beginning to nub! I almost burned my lips! Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE! I tried the other sizes and it didn't come close. Now, I don't know if it was a one of a kind or it was a fluke, but I just ordered a five pack and I'm hoping......PRAYING that it's the same fantastic experience. I'll update in the future about my finding with the five pack. *fingers crossed*
Smooth and long burning. Lots of warm coaxing flavors that tease your pallet. One of the best cigars I have come across in some time that is very affordable and a joy to share with your best buds. I have smoked more expensive cigars that can't deliver what these babies. ENJOY
A very nice stick with good flavor nice burn. My first Gloria was Series R which is a great smoke but a buddy of mine recommended the N Series and it is a great cigar I will do buy for my rotation.
A daily smoke for me. I absolutely love these sticks and for the price, you can't beat it.
I had high hopes for this cigar because I love the Serie R and the Black. This cigar was a let down. It was hard to pull and burned hot. The smoke was thin and weak. This was my experience with my entire order. Maybe i just got a bad batch....I rate these a 3 out of 10. I guess they can't all be good.
What can I say a great cigar as always. Better than the Series R IMHO. Nice oily wrapper, everything about it is just right. Very strong finish. Not for first timers and not a golf course smoke, unless a well seasoned smoker. The longer they sit the better they get, cello off!
This is a fantastic cigar. It is bold, smooth, consistent burn and lots of smoke. Not for the light hearted. It's one of those that you enjoy and when your done you just sit there and say, "Wow, that was a great smoke."
Had my first try of the series N this afternoon and found it almost the same as my regular A. Fuente 8-5-8 maduro. I liked the smooth burn, obviously well constructed and the taste. It will make a nice alternative to my regulars.
One of my top favorite cigars. Flavor, burn, strength...all amazing. Will be buying more!
These little gems were included in a sampler that I bought from CI and I enjoyed them so much I had to order more separately! Spicy bold full bodied smokes that draw really well and the ash holds on tight. Beautiful dark oily wrapper that has been fermented to perfection and construction has been consistent with all I have smoked so far. Will definitely keep a few of these in my humidor at all times!
La Gloria N series JSB is one of my favorite smokes! The texture of these great cigars can be a little deceptive because they are rolled tight and tend to be a little lumpy but the flavor of this cigar is outstanding. I am a reformed tobacco chewer and this smoke makes me feel like I have relapsed! The draw is a little tight but the flavor of the oily maduro wrapper and the aroma of this cigar are exceptional....my wife even likes the smell of these gems. I am relatively new to cigars so I am trying a wide range of smoke to see what I like best...this one will be one of my regulars.
