A richer, bolder La Gloria Serie R? Oh yes!

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black extends the immensely popular, 92-rated Serie R line. But here’s why this one’s different (and better). The new La Gloria Serie R Black is handcrafted in Nicaragua which allows for easier access to the powerful, ultra-flavorful tobaccos contained within. A Nicaraguan Tapado ligero wrapper grown in Jalapa overlays a bold, well-aged, Cuban-seed blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. This combination is ripe with flavor and strength, offering a rich n’ hearty profile brimming with notes of pepper, earth, coffee, cedar, cream, honey, and spices. Delicious, noticeably stronger than the already-powerful Serie R line, and ready to satisfy even the most discriminating palates. The big-ring sizes, relentless consistency, and top-notch construction you’ve come to expect from La Gloria remain, but they’ve surprisingly added in a lower per-stick retail price. What’s not to love about this one? Can’t think of a damn thing.

Meh...good but not great
Had these in my humidor for a year before lighting up. Every single one of them has burn, and draw issues. Have had to babysit these and require multiple touch ups. Not what I was expecting. Flavors are great though.

La Gloria Cubans Series R Black Number 64
My favorite cigar. I especially like the Number 64 ring size. I have ordered this cigar many times and the quality on them is always consistent and always great!! A great buy!

Disappointed
I’ve been smoking La Gloria Cubana cigars for many years, but a different ring size. I always liked a larger ring size cigar, because they taste better. This time I decided to try a 64 ring cigar the serie R Black and I have to say that I’m quite disappointed with this choice. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great tasting cigar, but there is one flaw I found in these cigars. There is a vein running down from the middle of the cigar down to the foot of it where you cut the tip off. At that point the vain opens up and ruins the cigar. It happened to the first five cigars. I don’t feel like wasting an other one so I don’t smoke them anymore.

Great cigar, but when shipped , the cigars are too dry
I’m a loyal La Gloria Cubana cigar smoker. I like a large ring cigar. In my opinion, the larger the ring the tastier the cigar smoke. And I like a full body cigar. So this time I ordered a box of 18 cigars of Serie R Black. I like these cigars, but the only problem I find that they ship these cigars too dry. So when I cut the tip off the cigar and since the cigar is so dry the wrapper cracks and ruins the cigar. Otherwise it’s an excellent smoke.

Not a fan
Really not a fan. Had two. Smoke output was mediocre at best, and this after being in the wineador for a few months. If the whole cigar tasted as good as the opening then this would be a five star review, but sadly flavor deteriorates and cigar becomes acrid. Wouldn't buy again.

La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black
Big fan of the regular non-Maduro Serie R and Serie N, the Serie R Black not so much. No huge issue with the cigar, just the flavor profile is not as good to me. To each his own!

a strong smoke
I have enjoyed La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black for several years now, and this smoke has never let me down. I prefer it with a whiskey, neat, or a strong, black coffee. The No. 60 has the size to give one a long, smooth smoke, and it finishes as flavorful as it starts. I highly recommend this cigar.

This cigar is one of my favorites, consistently good taste, great draw and killer finish. I’ve been using my CI Bucks with every purchase and it makes a good deal even better. I buy a pretty wide range of cigars from CI but the La Glorias are the ones I finish my evenings with.

The best cigar in the country of CI. Great even burn a classic smooth taste. I highly recommend this cigar to all Of the CI family. 1st started smoking them when I receive my cigar of the month package about a year ago. Get in the monthly club and you'll get some great cigars to try. I smoke the #64.

Tight Draw
The New La Gloria Cubana, R, Black, 60 were, surprisingly, a little tight on the draw. Taste is great, but had a hard time tasting this batch; almost all of them, so far, have not drawn great, even after some work trying to open them up.

Great Everyday Smoke
La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black No. 60 may not be a perfect cigar, but it certainly is a great everyday smoke. Every now and then I will get a bad cigar but it is rare, and won't stop me from buying them. I think it is a great value. Love the 60 ring gauge!

Forget the five pack and order the box
I guess large cigars are popular now and I was honestly a little nervous about the ring gauge for some of these. This baby needs time allotted to smoke it. Great day on the lake fishing cigar. Great relaxing by the pool cigar. Good with a cup of coffee in the afternoon. I was somewhat nervous about the strength so I did not buy a whole box, much to my regret, for not buying a box that is. All I can say is lots of flavor, no bite. Very different from the Serie N. not as creamy, no chocolate. This cigar is full flavored with a slight sweetness to the smoke. I am somewhat confused by all the words used to describe cigars flavors but being a wine, beer, and scotch drinker I understand the need to somehow differentiate the differing qualities.

I'm iffy on La Gloria Black R's
I was a bundle buyer for a while but decided to pay more money for a better cigar. I've always been a LG fan so I thought I'd try the new Black R's. Out of the first 5, 3 were horrible. One had a knot in it that was so big the roller almost had to have done it on purpose. Maybe the rest will be great and I'll amend this post, but at this point I am disappointed.

Pretty nasty tasting.
I see a lot of positive reviews for this cigar, and can't figure out why. I'm a huge fan of the Series R cigars, and was pretty excited when I saw a cheaper product available. I have to say, they taste absolutely horrible! Even though the draw produces rich full smoke, it is very airy and not very rich. The taste is bitter with almost untraceable hints of spice. The burn is uneven, and half way through, I cannot even bear the flavor. It had a very odd chemical flavor to it. Not sure what it is, but it is bad! I'm going to let them mature in the humidor and see if that produces any improvement in flavor, but I don't have my hopes up. After 4 sticks, all of which were just as bad, I think I'll need to write off this box.

Good taste, but...........
Good taste, but wrapper falls apart quite often and difficult to stay lit when getting to the end of the stick

Fantastic!
Love this cigar. Although the CAO, Brazilla, is my favorite, this smoke is right up at the top. Very rich and full flavored. Will definitely order them again!

A good value but not an exceptional experience
Not bad and not great, a little bland tasting compared to others I've had. But I'd say a decent value. A good burn, ash and all that.
4 out of 5
Great but Uneven burn
I recently bought these and overall they were a great smoke as always with La Gloria. I had to ding it a star because of the uneven burn through pretty much the whole bundle. I could never get it to burn just right, even tried leaving the ash on as long as possible and even that didn't help. I also noted that some of the cigars did draw well while others did fine.

The la Gloria r black 64 ring is one of the best cigars I've had, I'm not a one brand guy but I'm always going to have these on hand for when I have a hour and a half and want to get lost in thought. The full flavor blend is easy on the palate, not overwhelming like some.

This is one of my all time favorites, from a company that knows how to make a good smoke. This is a full body cigar, with good draw and burns proper. I think this stands toe-to-toe with the Cohiba black any day of the week for a third of the price.

Serie R Black
I think the LA Gloria Serie R Black is one of the Best cigars I have smoked and think it is the best La Gloria on the market. A dark oily rapper with a bold flavor but a smooth smoke from start to finish. This cigar needs more praise and promotion.

LaGloria black are by far the best quality cigar for the money. I would stack them up against Cubans anytime. Their rich taste and smooth, even draw are well worth trying. Earth and leather with a slight peppery afterglow. The best.

Not for me.
I bought a 5 pack of the 64 ring gauge because the price was right and I usually like La Glorias. Don't usually like ring gauges this big and this cigar is no exception. Full-bodied for sure and taste is okay. Burn and draw are terrible. Too much work for too little smoke. Too many touchups. The one I smoked today had been in humidor 6 months and dry box a week. Found myself fighting it, poking sharp objects into cut end trying to improve draw. Probably my last purchase of these.

La Gloria Cubana Series R Black No. 64
I have ordered about 10 boxes of these over the last two years. All have arrived on time and with no damage. The Series R Black is a very good full bodied smoke that is consistent in flavor from box to box. I have never had a bad cigar in all the boxes that I have bought. Until something better comes along, I will stick to these puppies!

Customer Testimonials
Wonderful cigar. Better, in my opinion than the std Serie R by a noticeable amount and I own them both. Rich, full smoke. On a price/value basis, one of the finest cigars I have had the pleasure to smoke. Very pleased. Try one after a nice steak/venison or tomato based pasta dinner and accompany with a good cognac or aged tequila. Suggestion: allow your cigar to age for 2-3 months in your humi before setting it on fire.
SH of DAVIDSON, NC
I'm a big fan of the Serie R, so I couldn't wait to try these. Very smooth.
MG of APO, AE
These were fantastic. I love the Serie R and the Serie R Black is just as good.
DG of smyrna, GA
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this cigar! I received the order, grabbed two, took them to my buddy's house and we smoked them to a bloody nub! That being said, they are very much an LGC Serie R, but they needed to rest a bit before we smoked them. The Serie R Maduro will have to do until these have aged awhile. Can't wait to revisit them in a few months. Great smoke, would recommend it to anyone.
DP of Lodi, CA
Great cigars at a great price!
SS of MURRELLS INLET, SC
This cigar is excellent, This will be my cigar of choice moving forward. Everything about it is excellent. Construction, burn line, Smoke output & flavor.
GH of Chino Hills, CA
I'm becoming a fan of 2-3 dollar cigars, in part because I'm a cheapskate, but also because I like a cigar I can just puff on with a cup of coffee while I surf the net. These do not fit that bill. I have, in fact, just smoked a #58 with a cup of coffee - well, 3 cups - while surfing the net, but this is more a sit in a leather chair with a snifter of cognac cigar. Very rich flavor. Lots of smoke. Little bit of sweet spice. The taste really demands your attention, and these babies are huge. I haven't done the math, but if you figure the price per pound of tobacco, they might almost be a budget smoke. More to the point, if you figure the price per hour of enjoyment, the price is more than fair.
MS of Westover, WV
Had this in a 6"X60. Don't usually smoke a big ring gauge but this was very good! Even slow burn and wasn't harsh as I expected. Can't go wrong with this one.
TC of Lexington, KY
A nice cigar and very woodsy. It's meaty and full of robust flavor with a peppery finish.
EW of Virginia Beach, VA
What a lot of folks don't realize is that, LGC is blended old school, meaning they require LOTS of humidor time. They need at least 3 months or more and then dry boxed for 3 days. That's why there are some negative reviews. Most likely, smoked too soon.
VC of Brooklyn, NY
I FOUND THESE CIGARS NEED A FEW DAYS DRY BOXING TO BE ANY GOOD, BEFORE I STARTED TO DRY BOX THEM THEY WERE UNSMOKEABLE I ALSO USED A CIGAR SPIKE ON THEM TO MAKE THE DRAW BETTER.
SS of asheville, NC
Terribly disappointing. The draw and volume of smoke the cigar produced was lackluster. The cigar would not stay lit either, which is probably the most frustrating part. To CI's credit they returned them hassle free.
SD of Evansville, IN
Great flavor, med-full body and strength. However, mine kept going out and I put it down with almost half left... I would recommend dry-boxing these for a few days because at 68% this gordo didn't want to stay lit. I would like to try some in the future though because the flavor profile was really interesting. Peppery with a hint of sweetness, and very mellow in the nose.
IT of Athens, GA
I have had Cubans (in China) and cigars costing $25.00 a pop, and NONE were as good as the LGC Serie R Black. These are very well constructed, and I can smoke several in a row, and not have the sore throat that comes with lesser sticks. The prices are ridiculously low for such good smokes. They are definitely on my 2013 Christmas list!
JG of CARVER, MN
I have always enjoyed Series R line but these blacks I can do without. the first one I thought well maybe it's a fluke the second didn't measure up. the rest will be gifts
RB of CULLOWHEE, NC
I ordered these sticks on the word of a good friend. I gotta say, after I ordered the 60s, I came back a week later and ordered the 64s. Great smoke. Nice ash. Ordering another box of the 64s today. Can't beat these great PREMIUM cigars for this price.
JT of Baltimore, MD
Great cigar! I was impressed with the smooth draw! I got this cigar as a freebie! I will be buying more from CI. GREAT flavor all the way to the end.
SD of BROUSSARD, LA
My husband LOVES these cigars. He likes a medium to dark and is a big fan of "Gloria," as we call her in our house. With the new giant 63 ring gauge, I knew his new staple had arrived. The happiness on his face makes me endure the richer smoke it emits. Thanks for a happy hubby.
JC of NEW LONDON, CT
I'm a lover of La Gloria cigars and couldn't wait to try these! ....they burned very uneven with big stalks in the burn. The taste wasn't as strong as I expected either. I also thought....they were very soft.

I received a box as a gift. This is a fairly powerful yet very smooth smoke. With the initial cold-draw taste I could tell this was one to sit down for. The Ligero wrapper certainly takes this to a whole new level. The wrapper glistened with oils, and the draw was consistent throughout. The 60-ring gauge lasted 2 full hours! Full-Bodied fans will want to try this one!

Let me start with stating this is a full-bodied stogie, not for the weak at heart. Easy draw, and lots of good smoke. Very exotic cigar with tons of palate teasers, notes of pepper, columbian black coffee, and various spices. Very enjoyable long smoke, set aside at least 2 hours.

I am a "La Gloria Cubana Series R" smoker and when I saw this new Series R "Black" version of my all time favorite stick, I had to get some! I read all the other reviews of course but I never make a decision on a cigar based on reviews, but this time they were spot on. I absolutely love it! I like the 64 ring myself. I should have however bought the box instead of the 5 pack, because now they are on backorder. Well, it's worth the wait. And the price.... Well, leave it to the guys at CI to present me with yet another great deal. Thanks guys! CI ROCKS and so do these beauties.

This was an enjoyable cigar with a lot of flavor but not a lot of strength (at least compared to Serie R). It was smooth, creamy and consistent from the toast all the way to the nub with very leathery almost meaty flavors in this big vitola. It smoked very cool nearly the entire time, but did not produce a lot of smoke. If you are a fan of La Gloria this is definitely a cigar to try, but for me the original Serie R is still the best.

One of the best LGC cigars made. Great flavor and a very full bodied smoke. The first two I smoked "out of the box" canoed on me and didn't burn well towards the middle, but after two weeks in my humidor they are perfect! If you like smoking Oliva Serie V or Cain cigars, this one is right up there with them.

this one has it all from the moment I opened the box the first thing I noticed was no cellophane baggies which gives it a better authentic feel, baggies to me say I'm an impersonal cigar, and since baggies are cellophane they really do nothing to keep humidity in or out, but not having them was interesting also the box they came in fit together so tight you could almost use it as a humidor box if you were so inclined. The smoke was Amazing, smooth from beggining to end, that full bodied nutty, chocolate, coffee tast you expect from nicuraguan tobacco, I will definitly buy these again they are my new favorite definately the rookie of the year for me!!!

I couldn't wait to get some of these cigars, I was very disappointed in them, very flat and dry. It did not have the strength that I was looking forward to. It had a funny testing finish.

One of the best full bodied cigars I have ever had the pleasure of smoking! Very strong, with a uniquely rich flavor and the smoke never becomes harsh, even when you get to the nub.

This full-body is a terrific new cigar. Congratulations on hosting such a powerful smoothie. One full hour of peaceful, flavorful bliss.
