    La Gloria Cubana Medaille d'Or No. 3

    Origin : CubaLa Gloria Cubana
    Format : Long Panatela
    Size : 175 x 11.11 mm
    Ring : 28
    Weight : 5.01 g
    Price : ~$10/piece

    Very smooth and pleasant smoke, I can recommend it sincerely. Maybe a little stronger would be better.

    Appearance : [rating:2.5/5]
    Looks for girls, indeed, men are ‘supposed’ to smoke big now, but occasionaly I go for this sensitive looking one…

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    The burn and construction are always flawless with a perfect draw. More resistant to overheating than most large gauge cigars.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    Fruity and spicy with a woody and honey sweetness. Slightly salty as well, especially in the finish. A bit more refined and subtle and a bit milder than No. 4. The taste is rich albeit with subtle nuances, so it should be smoked with mineral water or light coffe, and not with anything strong.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    Since the price has been reduced recently, La Gloria Cubana Medaille d’Or No. 3 became much more interesting.

    Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
    A cigar for the experienced smoker only. It takes some serious skill to smoke this slow enough and keep it lit in order to maximize its flavor and quality.

      Excellent cigar, is a big mistake that they stopped making them. Have excellent taste, rich diverse flavour than different regional editions with larger ring gauge. I’ll enjoy it. My are from 02.

      Normally, I don’t at all enjoy panetelas.. Burning too hot & not enough smoke/draw ratio. But this one has been the only one so far I would buy again! I enjoyed it with some Wild Turkey bourbon on a summer mid-day and it suited down to the ground!

      I don’t really like this cigar… way too thin for me.
