La Gloria Cubana Serie N JSB Review
La Gloria Cubana Serie N JSB - 5.5 X 54. Wrapper - Ecuadorian Sumatra, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium - Full bodied.
Initial taste - Earthy sweetness.
First Third - Earthy, fruity sweetness, hint of black cherry, light spice. Very nice flavor combination.
Second Third - Continuation of the earthy, fruity/ black cherry sweetness. Spice is picking up now and a nice leather flavor is emerging.
Last third - Spice really kicked up and it is now in the forefront followed by earthiness, black cherry and leather. Very nicely balanced. Very enjoyable long finish of earth, leather and spice.
Construction was perfect - dark chocolate color, burn was good and draw was excellent.
This is a very tasty, complex and very well balanced cigar. I really like this flavor profile and I also liked the way it started off as a medium cigar and kept building to a more full bodied cigar. I smoked this right down to the nub and it left me wishing there was more to smoke. MSRP for this vitola is $6.30 which makes this a great value for such a flavorful cigar. Highly recommended.
