All-Around Great Value
As a big La Gloria fan I bought these CI knock offs to give them a try as a "golf course" smoke. Turns out they're far better than that & make for a great anytime cigar. If you're not into label snobbery, they'll do just fine at the local club or social setting. Well-constructed with a medium body, they light well, draw evenly & hold their ash. Flavor is on par with any mid-priced "labeled" cigar. I'll be back for a lot more of these which is an endorsement all by itself!

Not worth much
Poorly made. They smoke much harsher than I expected. Forgettable.

So so
Close but no cigar, a bit of a harsh finish. Not as smooth as a Gloria. But not a bad daily smoke.

It's a knockout from the knock-off
Was at the golf course teeing off. Had one of these babies burning good and I guess the wind hit just right and sent the aroma sailing to the group behind me. Before I took one step the questions came does it taste as good as it smells, how much did it cost and so on. Great smoke!!!

Good, but not a La Gloria
A really good cigar, at this price point. It isn't a La Gloria, but it is half (or less) the price and really tasty. Good even burn.

CI Knock Off
Great cigar when you just want to kick back and relax. I have not had any that were hard draw, chunky or stems. Taste was excellent. Well constructed. Price was another plus. Mike Morel

As always - Great taste at a great value
Repeat buyer who throughly enjoys the experience of a great cigar. Smoked some in Vegas recently - shared some with strangers who commented on the aroma in passing. Thanks for making this blend.

Great Value and Taste
A well made cigar the hits all the right notes. The price can't be beat. Overall it compares to a $7-$9 cigar. Good job CI.

Ok for everyday smoke
The flavor was very close to the La Gloria's. Still has the very full taste. The construction however, I did not like. Too soft in spots and around the tip. I would buy these again for the for myself, but would not give to my friends.

Not a bad smoke
Enjoy these as an everyday smoke and not have to worry about it breaking the bank.

Not La Gloria
A decent cheap smoke but definitely NOT a La Gloria of any type. A fair ash but you must start with a good foot. Use an even draw with no cross wind for a long leg. This is a one knuckle nub.

Great for the price
Overall I'd say 4/5. Comparing it to its knockoff namesake I'd say 3/5, but it hits a sold 5/5 for cost. I've been looking for a lower-cost go-to and these have been great for that. If you're expecting a super high quality stick at this price you'll be disappointed, but if you're hoping to score something smoke-able without breaking the bank you'll be satisfied. I like these for a low-commitment smoke. I also don't mind handing them out to the "cigar smoker" I know is only going to get about halfway through before tossing it.

Great for the price!
For the money, these are excellent cigars. I was hesitant about buying these, but after getting them and smoking a few, I am no longer hesitant and I'll be buying more soon!

Not like La Gloria Cubana.
Well, I compared these to La Gloria and they're nothing like any La Gloria stick I ever smoked. These aren't full flavored, maybe medium at best. Well constructed, at least, but they fall short of comparing to a premium blend.

La Gloria Torpedo
Very good cigar for the price
5 out of 5
Gloria great alternatives.
I purchased the Churchill size and am very satisfied. Easy draw, with a mild taste and bellows of white smoke. Lasts 30 min or more. CI has done it again with a very close clone to the real thing. Keep it up, so I can continue to save money on very good smokes.

Quality at a Value Price
Nice quality cigar at a price that makes it possible to smoke a few per day. In a bundle of 20 you might get 3 that are a little harder to draw and every now and then you will get bits of tobacco in your mouth but for the most part I enjoy smoking these cigars.

Taste close to the real thing.
Tasty, nice aroma, tastes like a La Gloria but very loosely rolled and burned too quickly. Good outdoor/chore smoke.

Good smooth smoke
Medium strength, good flavor, good even burn. I will purchase these again, and let them sit in my humidor for a couple of weeks to improve and blend flavors. Worth buying.

Customer Testimonials
Received a bundle of the Corona size today, and lit one up. Nice even burn, and great flavor; I would order this cigar again.
All in all not a bad cigar, if your looking for a cheep daily stick. Not a La Gloria by a long shot. They are very spongy and real loose construction. I got the Corona 6.5x42 and I am just going to tuck them a way for awhile and see if they come around.
Good smoke for the money...burn and draw are good...mild in flavor. Construction is good altho a little loose. It is better to punch these rather than snip. A good daily cigar.
Always great delivery, from PA to HI in three days and no premiums added like another on-line cigar company. Couldn't find much comparison in taste to La Gloria, reminds me more of Excaliber especially since the wrapper has a greenish hue rather than Gloria's reddish tone. Still a decent smoke for the price.
Tried MANY & filtered'em all down to these puppies--> LaGloria knock offs. Great 'gar for taste, aroma, smokability, hang-time, $ and value on 7x50 Churches. Thx CI. steve, UP North.
Great smoke with good flavor, medium strenght and long finish! Let these rest for a week at least to avoid any disapointment. Definitely going to re order... good job on these CI.
For the price I have never found a better or more consistent smoke. The Churchill and Lonsdales fill my humidor. Period!
Good cigar. Mild flavor however. Burn was good. Wrapper held together fine. Color nice. Would recommend to anyone wanting a nice size mild smoke.
I have a love/hate relationship with these cigars. I love the flavor, the pepper, the spice, but I hate the inconsistency in how it's made. It has a nice amount of smoke, but then it will burn inconsistently. It has been my daily smoke for a while.
Received the bundle in the mail yesterday and could not resist it. I was very happy with this one. Tons of delicious smoke, nice construction and a nice even draw. With time in the humi this might be quite a gem. When you add in the price this is just a great deal (or steal). I think I've found my everyday smoke. Thanks CI
Got them in today and couldn't wait till they rested in the humidor so I lit one and was pleasantly surprised. Great smoke. Lots of flavor, even burn and smooth draw. I'll have these in my humidor from now on.
