The El Credito factory, where La Gloria Cubana Serie N cigars are produced in the Dominican Republic, employs 100 artisans—a term they state they do not use lightly—to craft premium cigars worthy of the La Gloria Cubana name. These artisans hail from rural areas of the Dominican Republic where “the art and practice of cigars are passed down from generation to generation.”
La Gloria Cubana believes that success and leadership go hand in hand. For this reason, they hire cigar mentors who are highly respected and have spent lifetimes working with tobacco. The knowledge they share with the La Gloria Cubana artisans adds to and polishes their already impressive skillset and understanding of the cigar industry. La Gloria Cubana is known as the OG boutique brand, and while they have grown considerably since those humble beginnings, they feel strongly that they remain in a boutique mindset.
When the La Gloria Cubana Serie N cigars launched in 2010, the brand made sure to emphasize that these stogies are meant for experienced smokers. They said their wish was to produce a blend packed with power and flavor for the tenured smoker. Well, they hit the mark, creating a complex smoke filled with notes of raisins, honey, fresh leather, and bold spice.
What makes the La Gloria Cubana Serie N cigars so bold and complex? It starts with carefully selected long fillers and binder from Nicaragua. These are then covered with a near jet black oiled-up Ecuadorian Sumatra Capa Oscura leaf. Right in the middle of the cigar, there's a light tan-colored letter "N" pressed into the leaf. The result of this dark leaf and pressed letter creates a cigar almost too good-looking to smoke—almost.
The box is also impressive. It’s a glossy fire engine red and hexagon-shaped with the same letter "N" printed on each side. La Gloria Cubana's strict attention to detail takes care of everything and leaves you with nothing left to do but light up and enjoy the flavor show.
