History of LA GLORIA CUBANA
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.
