“I purchased 2 Herf A Dor packs. El Gordo #40: La Gloria Serie R + Herf-a-Dor and a Romeo y Julieta 1875 Herf-a-Dor Combo. The deal on these were great and the lighter that came with the La Gloria is a terrific lighter, but the La Gloria Serie R were sadly disappointing. Not sure how they got a 92 rating. On the other hand the Romeo y Julieta 1875 fabulous and I will order them again when they are back in stock.
“The best Vitola of the bunch is the No. 3. Short and bitter sweet. Deep earth and raw cocoa dominate this cigar. It also has a zesty dried fruitiness toward the end. This is an everyday, all day smoke. Full bodied and full smooth strength.”
“La Gloria Cubana Serie R:
I prefer the natural over the maduro, and I have tried each cigar in this series from the piquenios to the #7's. IMHO the best is the #6. It's got the right combination of length and ring gauge. There's something in these cigars, maybe a special tobacco, maybe something else, but it acts, for me, like a neuro-toxin. I can be as angry, sad, or frustrated as I've ever been, then light up a #6 and within a few puffs all is right with the world again. This doesn't happen for me with all cigars, nor with all of the Serie R's, just the #6 and #7. Your results may vary if the receptor in my brain is different than yours. As for taste: I taste Oak or Mesquite, floral, and a tiny bit of orange rind. They always burn perfectly and always have a perfect draw.”
“Had the natural #5...not a bad smoke...not really the flavor I prefer, but it has a bold flavor with a good amount of smoke production...I will have to try the maduro version, as that is more of my type of smoke...”
“I have yet to find another full bodied cigar that I enjoy more than the La Gloria Cubana serie R in maduro wrapper. If you treat these cigars well and keep them properly humid, then you will not be disappointed. This is possibly the most flavorful fullbodied cigar that I have tried. If there is one out there that someone would say can trump it, let em know.”
“I burned one of these down this afternoon and I have to say it was absolutely incredible. Fantastic smoke with a rich hearty flavor while remaining smooth. Burn was even all the way around all the way to the nub. A very enjoyable smoke worthy of the 92 rating that it received by the experts.”
“La Gloria R... I so fondly remember my 1st one, instant love.... I'm just glad to see I'm not the only one who gets "High" (for better lack of description) while smoking a good cigar... Like a similar smokable substance, I too feel strong euphoric effects while smoking certain cigars. The La Gloria R is by far one of my favorites. While a bit pricey off the shelf, CI offers this gem at a reasonable price for common man. Thanks CI! Maybe it's just a Pennsylvania thing???
“The Serie R Pequenos are the best small cigars I have tried to date. Most small cigars lack the flavor of their big brothers; not these.”
“I have never had a cigar burn so perfect. Picked one of these up in a sampler. The tastes were pronounced and assertive, the wrapper was perfect, the burn was razor sharp, so I can totally see the 92 rating. Probably would have been rated higher if it weren't for the price. Great smoke!!”
“By far one of my favorite smokes.”
