Unfortunately, that's not an easy find (must be limited edition). La Gloria Cubana Tainos is very light and is perfect for a hot summer smoke with an expensive cocktail or (why not?) for a woman.
I like how these babies look, shiny, oily wrapper with just a few veins. Perfectly filled and rolled.
Had very few problems with the draw, was a bit tight in the beginning then a few puffs arranged everything. Even burn and beautiful ash included in the package.
As I've already said, the cigar is very light - you can even try inhaling the smoke - and feels like a real Habano. Fruity, floral flavors are ever-present along with sweet notes of precious wood. Could be compared to Bolivar Coronas Gigantes but are considerably lighter and less complex (not sure whether it's good or bad.. I like both).
La Gloria Cubana Tainos are expensive because they belong to a limited edition. I can't say that they are worth every penny, but it's rather a reasonable price.
Overall Rating :
When I light this Julieta, it makes me think about vacations, Hawaiian shirts and Pina Colada. Light yet memorable flavor makes of this stogie a very interesting choice.
