You down with LGC?
E.P. Carrillo, the face behind the name, is a master of his craft. When it comes to full-bodied, well-constructed cigars, nobody does it better, and that’s why the fans absolutely love it and can’t stop coming back for more. And one of his most celebrated blends? La Gloria Cubana Serie R. A 92-rated, full-bodied treat packed with a four country blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, Brazilian and Mexican long-fillers. These cigars first hit the market back in 1999 and have seen much success. In 2003, celebrating the 5th anniversary of the cigar, Carrillo debuted the Serie R Limitada Series. These are made in limited quantities every year using a different blend that will never be revisited.
The Limitada 2005 comes in your choice of Connecticut Broadleaf or Ecuador Sumatra wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers from the Dominican and Nicaragua. It comes in one hefty size at almost 8" long with a thick 62 ring gauge providing over 2 hours of enjoyment. Only 700 boxes were produced in each wrapper and they come packaged inside an Italian handcrafted humidor made especially for this release. The draw is a bit tight at first - likely due to the length - but opens up nicely to a bold and chewy, full-bodied array of coffee, nuts and tobacco flavors. These cigars are very hard to find and we were only able to source an extremely limited amount. If this cigar interests you at all, I suggest you jam that add to cart button ASAP, they will soon be gone for good.
