    A really enjoyable smoke. I should really smoke them more often. They aren’t $5 a stick around here though. Usually about $8 a stick, and at that price they aren’t as attractive to me.

    The Serie R Maduro is the only LGC that I really enjoy. There is a tobacco store here that gets these in every once in awhile. They usually go for $6 even.

    I think you hit this one on the head – ugly, but flavorful. It did get a bit strong for me at the halfway point, so I had to take it slower after that though.

    Hands down one of my favorite sticks, maybe just behind the La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 7 Maduro.
    I have three La Gloria Cubana Serie R 2005 Limitadas and two Serie R 2003 Limitadas in my humidor, I have as well. I wish LGC would do another Limitada….

    Great cigar. They are around $8 a stick in my part also. It was not as strong as I would expect from a maduro version. It had a even smoke all the way to the nub.

    Just had one today. Thought it was great. Nice even burn. If I wouldn’t have knocked the ash off I don’t know how long it would have burned. Nice cigar.

    Just finished up a Serie R. with a couple buddies in Afghanistan. Really enjoyed the cigar…rich, creamy smoke and very distinguishable flavor. The cigar started sweet with soft leather and progressed to a spicier, nutty flavor. It went great with a chilled coffee (cold water mixed with instant coffee and sugar- we do what we can in a war zone!). I’ll definitely start to keep a few of these on hand in the humidor.

    This is my second favorite cigar just behind the La Flor Dominica, Colorado Escuro. A smooth but very flavorable cigar with lots of complexity and a lingering after smell that is pleasent and not stale. A perfect compliment to a bourbon on the rocks or bourbon and coke.

    If you like these you will also like a Casa Magna as well in both the colorado or escuro versions.

    I agree this is now my favorite cigar. I got it as a gift,one look and I said yuck. What a surprise. I agree totally with the review.

    This is an extremely rich, full bodied cigar. This is not one of my favorites but seems to please the palette of those who enjoy a rich full bodied cigar. The flavor is extremely woody and earthy and perfect for a more seasoned smoker or those who can appreciate such a bold cigar. One can also appreciate its smoothness and ability to hold a lengthy ash.
