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.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★☆
I like how these babies look, shiny, oily wrapper with just a few veins. Perfectly filled and rolled.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★½
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.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
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).

Value : Rating: ★★★½☆
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 : 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.

  1. I have to agree. This isn’t one of those cigars that you want to take with a stout ale or a strong brew of coffee, but it would go well with a lighter beverage. I have to say thouht, as chauvinist as it might seem, I cannot imagine a womans lips around it. Great cigar though.

  2. Charlie Joe says:

    As one who has tried it, this one goes well with a mild wine or fruit drink. It is a mans cigar though, have to agree with you on that. The color is very nice too.

  3. ShesAllThat says:

    My, My what a shame my Dear CigarFriend! Frankly my lips are craving a La Gloria Cubana Tainos as we speak and are one of my favourites. In fact, I often enjoy one with a French Kiss…. Martini that is. A perfect way to end an evening of “Girls-Night-Out”. 1 of Chambord, 2 of Grey Goose and 3 of Pineapple Juice.

  4. This whole marca is a waste of time. As you can see, extinction is on the horizon.
