La Gloria Cubana Serie R

For a limited time only, enjoy CI Free Shipping on your entire order with any qualifying La Gloria Cubana box purchase. 

'R'guably La Gloria Cubana's finest.

The La Gloria Cubana Serie R cigar utilizes an Ecuadorian grown Colorado shade wrapper, or Connecticut Broadleaf maduro, concealing an extensively aged blend of Mexican, Dominican, Brazilian, and Nicaraguan filler leaves. The result is a richer, spicier, fuller bodied version of the regular La Gloria Cubana cigar line. Using thicker ring gauges, the Serie R helped pave the way for today’s thicker, bolder cigars. Experience the beginning of a legend.

The Serie R has been honored with a 92-rating noting: "Rich in color with an oily wrapper and superbly crafted cap, this short robusto draws and burns evenly. Sweet woods and floral notes are balanced by spices, earth and hints of dried orange peel."

Bought them for a wedding party,but oooops
My wifes niece asked me to get her some smokes for the groomsmen in her upcoming wedding.Well i received them and decided to give em a try. I havent smoked a series R in a while,and I enjoyed the heck out of it!! So what did I do,I smoked a few more! Very nice spice,heavy smoke,med + body,at the right $$$! Going to work them into regular rotation.Needless to say I was about a 5pk short prior to delivery to the wifes niece! Had to root thru the humi to make up the difference,so she now has 5goodies and 5dogs! My lil secret!! Jump on them fellas,top rate smoke!

Great value!!!!
Between medium & full body. Smooth draw. I have smoked the LaGloria extra for a number of years. In the last year of purchasing them I found myself disposing of a third of the box. Green. Didn’t draw worth a dam. I switched to the R series & the problem has been almost totally eliminated. If you want a premium stick I guess you have to pay a premium price.

Awesome
I am a fan who begins to enjoy the pleasure of smoking. This cigar caught my attention because in its references it was classified as full flavor and I was not wrong. I chose well and it seems to me that I am going to lean to enjoy cigars of this profile. Sweet coffee, leather, chocolate, wood and a flavor that was there but could not remember its name, was clove. Delicious experience of almost two hours of good smoking.

Great cigar at a better price.
I enjoy these serie R a lot. Great construction with a nice draw and plenty of smoke output. The ash hangs on to about the 1/2 point without babying it and they burn even and don’t usually require any touch ups. I found them on sale for a 10 cigar deal so the price was even better! The only reason I’m giving this cigar a 4/5 and not a full 5 is because out of my 10 cigars 2 of them have a spongy soft spot in them towards the end of the 1st third down in to the second third. I’m resting those two a bit to see how they’ll smoke after settling a bit but. The other 8 are absolutely flawless smokes

My go-to.
Hands down my favorite cigar, love being able to get them at such a discount online. Cigars show up to house well humidified and quite promptly. Certainly beats paying 8-12 dollars a stick at the local countertop

Very good cigar
5 out of 5
Smooth, easy, full-bodied.
Good draw, nice velvet feel, and incredible taste. From start to finish. La Gloria Cubana is that type cigar which emphasizes earth tones. But is done without the dry and dirt taste. A good cigar to have with any type cocktail, or even iced tea. It lasts a solid 30-45 minutes. With even draw and good pull. A quality cigar for the price and adventure.

Trustworthy, long burning, tasty transitioning, no-brainer of a stick. Everyone I light is like it’s on auto pilot. It’s never let me down. It can seem peppery through the first few draws, but wait... it gets sexy from there.

Good buy
a bit pricy when not on sale so I usually wait for them to go on sale before I buy. A close second to Cohoba red dot in my opinion. I like a full body cigar. This doesn’t disappoint. Burns even and long and a good compliment to a glass of bourbon. Paired these to Blantons. Gave it 4 stars because of the price and some seemed to be rolled a bit tight.

Only got better after all these years...
My first box was this series, and the #6, that was back in the mid 90s, you'd think after all this time there would be a change, and to my surprise it only GOT BETTER! Well worth your time, great aroma, easy draw, a pure pleasure!

5 out of 5
An awesome smoke!!!
I can't say enough good of this cigar! From the first puff until you let it die in dignity in your ashtray, you get a consistant burn with no uneven burns. The flavor is rich but smooth, much like some of the fine dark chocolates that come from Europe. I find that it evenly compares to my favorite cigar, which, unfortunately, was a limited edition short-run that is no longer in production. It may be a little too strong for new cigar smokers, but if you know you like a certain flavor profile, leaning to sweet and slightly bitter, this is the cigar for you. I burn fast regularly, but I found myself having to take a few minutes as a break between draws when I got to the second third. I got this as a mixed sampler, but I would certainly choose it as a brand to buy in the future. Hope this helps!

La Gloria Cubana Serie R, No. 5 - it likes humidity, probably in the 73% range, maybe 74. Its a rich, meaty smoke that never needed a re-light, never dropped ash in my lap, burned cool and smooth down to the last 1/2 inch. I will definitely buy more.

Enjoyable Smoke.
Good flavor with what I would describe as medium-full body. The cigar started to cave half way in, but I was able to dress it up and get the filler, binder and wrapper going together again. Never harsh but full to the end. I would but this again.

Love this cigar
Delicious, amazing cigar. From the first draw. While I smoked, I drank coffee and ate bittersweet chocolate. The flavor of both was awesomely enhanced by LGCSR5. After I finished, I happened to eat some nice munster cheese. It was better than any munster I've ever eaten. Had so much fun with this cigar!

one of the best cigars i've smoked yet. I've been buying a lot of the create your own samplers and such, trying to develop my palate and find my preferences. i like a full bodied full strength stick. this, however, is one tasty cigar. i'm a fast smoker, but even so this gave me a long,slow, even burn. 2 hours 15 minutes. that makes it a great value, as well. who would have thought it?

Super happy with this beauty
Just a super nice smoke right out of the gate. rich aroma before lighting. and from the first draw it's been great. Also this has to be the longest burning cigar of its size i've ever encountered. going on 2.5 hours now and i'm only just beginning the second 3rd... it's 2:15 AM and i have to work tomorrow. i expected maybe an hour, hour and a half tops. but it's just too nice a smoke to stop now. I am definitely ordering a box as soon as i have room. the flavor, aroma, body, strength, the smoke time - so far the best value for money & time among all cigars I've tried.

I try and grab some anytime they're offered in a sampler or on special. Can't say enough about the taste, burn, draw on these. Highly recommend. Semper Fi!!

I always come home to the Serie R
Arguably my very favorite cigar of all time, at the very least, it is my favorite all the time smoke. I gravitate toward the dark side...so I tend to prefer the Maduro but the regular shade wrapper is good too. I love to play with Cigar International's amazing sampler options, but I always come home to the Serie R

GO TO CIGAR
This is one of my 3 "Goto" smokes. The only issue I'm having with this last order is they don't want to stay lit and go very quickly which a problem I've never seemed to have. Other than that the flavor is very down to earth.

My favorite stick.
What can I say. Burns evenly. Smooth, not harsh. Maduro, but does not get you dizzy. Women do not mind the smell. Big. Just about everything I look for in a cigar.

La gloria cubana mudero
I got these cigars as a sampler. I made sure that my humidity was on point 70 percent humidity was running 70% today I took one out to try. My cut was above the shoulder to make sure there would be nice. Instantly it began to unravel and I had to keep lighting it. This stick is great and if not not for the unraveling and constant l would have been an exalent stick. I am going to let the other ones have time to acclimate to the humidity and I'll go from there. Ill put another update if this review changes. Thank you and hope it has been helpful.

Construction needs work
Great flavor. Extremely poor construction. Even with 3 relights, I could not get it to burn evenly. Poor draw as well. If you want some busy work while you smoke, this is the cigar for you. There are better cigars for the money.
5 out of 5
#6 Serie R
My personal favorites are the #5 and #6. The flavor is amazing for price. Smooth and creamy smoke with hints of chocolate and light pepper, flavor overall is amazing. Draw is flawless, construction so far has been exceptional, and the burn is slow and even. The 2nd third is my favorite as all of the flavor really peaks. The thicker ring size makes it all the more enjoyable, average smoke time for a #6 is about 70-80 minutes.

La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 5 Maduro
This has got to be my favorite cigar so far, sweet tasting full thick plumes of smoke. Smoke roll slowly off my tongue through my lip's savoring every puff of this cigar. Well constructed beautiful maduro rapper. I don't like to share these , I think I am in love with them. Sadness happens every time I am down to 1 left so it must be love. I know I sound crazy....

Inconsistant quality ruins a really good cigar
The maker really has a quality control problem with this cigar. Years ago I put it on my "favorites" list and have returned to it several times, but I must say I am getting really shy about reorders. The "good" ones are unbelievable good smokes. Delicious flavors. The "bad" ones are equally unbelievably bad. Some burn extremely crooked, has a hard stick down one side which also ruins the taste, the draw, and drops ashes all over you. If I knew when this was corrected, I would reorder.

I've had both the maduro and the natural (Colorado) #5s and I absolutely love them. I always have a few of them in my humidor, as they are one of my top favorite cigars. The taste competes with the of the more expensive cigars out there. Seriously, scroll back up, and get these, or even better, get the La Gloria sampler. Either way, you wont be disappointed.

Very nasty.
By far the worst cigar I have ever smoked. After smoking 3 of the 5 cigars, I found the taste of chemical to be very strong. Draw was almost impossible. Burn was inconsistent and there was ash everywhere. I even let them age for about 4 month to see if that would improve the taste. It did not. The last two I had were throne away because I just didn't feel they were even worth giving away. Glad I ordered only 5. I bought them due to the reviews. Never again.

Really, if you don't know, you should definitely try it.
Maybe a better cigar exists, but for an excellent smoke at this price point, I doubt it (I'm willing to try if someone wants to send me a free box of Opus X or something similar). Admittedly, I was an Arturo Fuente snob for a while, but once I branched out and found this beauty, I was sold. I still have Fuente in my humidor, but this brand dominates.

ONE OF THE BEST EVER!!!
I have enjoyed these smokes for a long while. I just recieved my tripple 5 pack of three different cigars. Obviously I am letting them mature, but let me give a great review of this particular cigar. Many times I have been pleased by La Gloria. I love the # 5 and 6. The maduro is actually my favorite but the natural is great to the nub as well. These are full but SMOOTH smokes. If you dont have some of each (natural/maduro) in your humidor, then you are depriving yourself!

My friend asked me to try this cigar and I did. After a few days in the pressure cooker (I always let my orders sit for 5 days in the humidor when the arrive in the mail.). I found that these sticks had a bold and smoothe taste. No nasty after taste. Great everyday stick. It burned a little hot towards the end but great at the start and through the show.
5 out of 5
Without a doubt, one of my favorite sticks
My go-to cigar for almost any occasion. Whether it's a straight cut or V cut, always a smooth draw with the perfect blend of spices. Excellent balance for a full bodied cigar that won't make you feel loopy afterwards. GREAT SMOKE!!!

KDisston
I tend to browse the various cigar websites when I'm looking to restock my humidors. There are sooo many really good brands out there that sometimes its a year or more that has passed before I revisit an 'old favorite' brand. LGC Series R is one of those. I have to say that this current box of LGC Series R #5s is somewhat of a disappointment. I've only smokes about 5 out of the box, but each one has been a struggle. They don't burn evenly, requiring frequent dress-ups with my torch. They also go out frequently. I light up when I'm looking to relax, and having to dig my lighter out of my pocket repeatedly is a pain. La Gloria Cubana used to be one of my go-to brands. They were consistently good and a bargain at their price point. If this box is representative of their current state of quality, they will soon be relegated to the bargain bin stogies category. Three stars and that's being generous!

Customer Testimonials
Holy wow. I had the maduro version. Not for the faint of heart at all. I enjoy medium to full flavor cigars and this (along with RP The Edge) is one of the strongest cigars I have ever had. Oily. The lighter notes that are noted by experts must come from a more refined palate than mine. I don't get them at all. Wood, dark leather, and oil are the only three takeaways I have on this stick. Lot of oomph without a lot of ahhhhh. If you enjoy these, you will find most other cigars lacking. To me, against the advice of experts, these do not stack up to the 92 rating. This won't be in my rotation, but I am proud to say I tried this one.
I absolutely love the robustos. Maybe my favorite smoke. Full bodied with a flavor that holds up even when paired with a peaty scotch.
Just got these in a Herf/5-cigar deal. The construction is fine, the draw is a little hard and the cigar is trying to convince me that it a fine smoke as I am smoking it and writing this review. Well it is doing a good job of changing my mind. I was going to give it a bad review, but the longer I smoke this the better it gets. The draw is now just fine, it's medium/full body and I find it well balanced. I'm smoking the last third now and have to admit that its not too shabby. Overall it is a nice cigar with lots of smoke, with flavors that remain in the mouth (pepper,earthy,hearty). I would buy these again, they are a nice smoke for after dinner or with a drink. The cigar took me about 1 hour 20 min. to finish and it never got hot or bitter. If you like medium to full bodied cigars that are well built and want to try this, go ahead you wont be sorry.
Good God, man! This maduro is beauty IN the beast, I kid you not. Had one right off the truck with a phenomenal beer. I had never paired a cigar with a beer, but the Founder's English Porter was friggin' perfect! And this cigar is a sturdy & powerful bit of decadence. NOT an everyday smoke, for me! I could save these for a special occasion, but prefer to make smoking the Serie R maduro THE special occasion. I do recommend that you eat first.
Was looking for a smooth maduro and saw the reviews on this one. I picked up a stick at a cigar shop and wasn't disappointed. For a full-bodied cigar I couldn't tell. I didn't find it overwhelming at all. Maybe my palate is maturing because I usually prefer mild to medium cigars. Lots of creamy smoke with an excellent burn. Very tasty. I'm smoking it down to the nub as I type this. I'll be ordering a few more of theses for my humi.
Bang for the buck, the #6 natural is my "go to" cigar. Hey, I love an Ashton VSG, Padron, etc. - but this cigar has the right price/value point.
Over all, one of the best out there. The nice thing is, if you had one 2 years ago and smoked one today, you get the same cigar. No fussing with the blend, no tweeking and ruining a good thing, just a damn good cigar.
So...I purchased these with my new humidor and I don't know, maybe since I'm a newbie but this cigar was awesome. Amazing flavor and maintained a full burn. I felt so relaxed and, call me crazy, but felt buzzed. Could have del asleep with the way it made me feel. I'm edited to try more and share with my experts. Great cigar!
La Gloria Cubana Serie R (No. 4 - Natural): Very easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Very little resistance on draw and very heavy amount of smoke output even when at rest. Thick and oily on palate. Mild to Medium strength and medium flavors. Flavors of very light initial citrus followed by caramel and sweet leather. Tobacco has a slight sourness on lips. Medium length finish of leather and aged tobacco with no spice.
By far the most tasteful cigar good shape, magnificent taste, less expansive and more relaxing then a full body massage.
#5 Natural. Incredibly spicy start! Loved it. After about 1/3 mark the heavy spice tapered off a bit and went to background a bit. still there but not as overpowering and smoke was more "savory" is the best word for it. Like a great steak. About halfway in got a very heavy nicotine rush. Needed a touch-up and that brought out the spice again. One of my favorites. Will be getting other sizes to try. Not for a first time smoker though, very intense cigar.
Robusto #5. Wow. The spice at the front end is very powerful. I love it but it could be too much for someone not used to it. After a bit the spice mellowed some and the flavor could be best described as "savory." Very much like enjoying a fine steak. Very complex flavoring. Spice was still there but not as strong or by itself anymore about 1/3 in. Did need to touch it up some and that brought back the spice to the forefront for a bit. Overall one of my favorite smokes, plan to buy more and also try other sizes.
Smoking my first one right now. #4.......very nice! The construction is fabulous, even burn, nice feel, nice look. My son gave me this to try, and I have to say I taught him well. For the money, this is absolutely amazing. Very smooth with LOTS of smoke. Effortless puffs, yet a solid draw. I hope they're all like this, cause I'm looking to order a fair amount. This just joined my stock pile, and I have a good one. You don't always have to spend the big bucks to get the big dollar experience. I only wish I would have found this stick sooner. Better late then never.............
Love at First Taste... What an incredible experience
I'm halfway through my first one of these, and I just had to post something while it was on my mind. I love this cigar. I'm not sure of the number or size, but I picked it up in the current "Chosen One 4" sampler as of March of 2014. I've always been a La Gloria fan, and this one is the best I've had from this brand so far. I've smoked several of the N series, and while the taste and draw is similar, the N series always released a large amount of smoke off of the end of the cigar, so much that it often was annoying. This is not the case with this R series cigar. This is going to be one of my go-to cigars. I look forward to finishing this one off and seeing how it holds up to the nub.
Excellent smoke! One of my all time favorites.
Fell obligated to offer my honest unbiased review of the 60 ring series R madero to any serious smoker. This cigar was very enjoyable in every way. Not trying to sell anybody,just an honest review of my experience with this cigar. Well constructed. Burned beautifully?no touch ups needed.Complex throughout. Very nice aroma.One of the best Madurese I have ever smoked. Not too pricey when you consider you get 24 per box. Hated to put it out but don't like burning my fingers. I will buy more.Really enjoyable and I am a serious cigar lover. Take for what it's worth.
This is a great cigar, smooth all the way to the end.
Once this Series R was referred to as my go to smoke, actually this is my number smoke! Fabulous full body cigar.
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!!
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.
By far one of my favorite smokes.
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???
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
