La Gloria Cubana Colección Reserva was Ernesto Perez-Carrillo’s attempt to recreate a blend he had originally created in the 1980s. Created to mark the 25th anniversary of La Gloria Cubana receiving their first accolades in Cigar Aficionado magazine.
A passion project that La Gloria and Ernesto has been planning for just over two years, the Coleccion Reserva is a Medium-Full bodied blend that is based around a blend of Seco and Ligero Nicaraguan tobacco leaves, these leaves are unique in that they are only cultivated once a year! The blend is then bound in a Nicaraguan Viso binder, and wrapped in Ernesto's beloved Sumatra wrapper, an oily gem with immense appeal. This blend of tobaccos gives the cigar a rich and refined flavor, with warm notes of leather, cedar and spice.
