    I see you have done a review on one of my all time favorite smokes. I envy you about having a 15 year old smoke lying around. In fact, that is when I started smoking LCG torpedos and have enjoyed them ever since.

    I have to agree with you on your ratings. I believe the earlier years the cigar was better. When I order a box of them, I try to leave them in my humidor for about 3 months to a year before smoking them. This is one cigar that gets better with some time in the humidor.

    Great idea for a review. Do you think any EPC cigars are similar to the old LGC? Maybe the original short run (which I loved) or the core line, which both have sumatra wrappers?

    I’m really glad to see a quick article about Ernesto Carrillo’s LaGloria Cubanos from both today and yesteryear. I have been crying a river ever since his 1993 LaGloria releases were substituted for what they became in later years. Their original Miami release in the early ’90’s were KICK-ASS GREAT!!! ‘Sure hope no offense at my statement, yet those bad boys kicked my tushy- they were monumental, powerful, heavy, almost decadent smokes that answered the prayers of us hardened aficionados. What they’ve become nowadays, along with the rest of the releases under Ernesto’s own name are practically no better than cookie cutter cardboard – NO distinction in as far as taste, power, and flavor. Despite my frenzied attempts at contacting his factory to see if there might be a box of ANYTHING left over from that early ’90’s period, it just seems that we’re destined to be destitute of what once was a sooooo wonderful, mighty, coveted smoke on a par with (if not far surpassing) the incomparable Cuban Bolivar cigar.

    I concur with Jag-Z. Those Early ’90s Glorias were the best cigar I ever smoked. I was living in South Florida at the time, and I even made a pilgrimage once to the El Credito factory on Calle Ocho in Little Havana, where I picked up a box of Churchills as well as a bundle of El Credito’s house brand (which were better than most premium brands). I bought box after box of Glorias, Churchills, Wavels, Double Coronas…and I have never again smoked anything that approaches that original Miami Gloria Cubana in unique aroma and flavor. It’s the Holy Grail for us dreamers. Will it be found again? Will the Cubs ever again win the World Series?
