LA GLORIA CUBANA MEDAILLE D’OR No.4 amazing Stogie. La Gloria Cubana or “The Glory of Cuba” brand, introduced in 1885, is one of the oldest Cuban brands. Made only by hand (hecho a mano), the La Gloria is available in a variety of mostly long, lanky sizes. Developed by José Rocha and Rafael García, the brand got off to a good start thanks to tireless promotion by Pepin Fernández, owner of the Romeo y Julieta brand, who helped his friends introduce the La Gloria Cubana and El Crepúsculo brands overseas. La Gloria Cubana cigars are often said to have a “salty” taste, especially when aged. You can buy this at Stogies & More.
