La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiale Cigars
La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especiale
Recalling the glory days of Cuban cigars, the La Gloria Cubana Artesanos Retro Especialé hearkens back to the packaging and artful craftsmanship of a bygone era. For a company with its eyes on the future, La Gloria Cubana sure knows how to glorify the past in all that is does. Their full portfolio of smokes, many holding 90+ ratings, build upon the legacy of, rather than simply copy, the best attributes of some of the world’s finest cigars. And the Retro Especialé? With a well-aged and golden brown Connecticut seed wrapper of Honduran heritage, dual binders from Nicaragua and Mexico, and Dominican and Nicaraguan ligero sitting pretty at the core, the smoke is hearty and flavorful without being fancy or overdone.
At first the cigar is boldly cedar-like and salty, medium in body, and slight spicy through the nose. After the first third, stronger coffee and cream flavors emerge, with a few additional notes of nuts and citrus once the cigar reaches the final half. A true classic in every sense, just about any smoker can enjoy the Cubanesque tastes presented by the Artesanos Retro Especialé. Packaged in boxes of 25, take a look at our incredible prices and get your wallet ready to be amazed. These cigars have excellent aging potential so make room in your humidor for some, but they’re just as good right now so hide them well.
