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.

Food and cigars are like honey and ambrosia to me! This Panetelas is a great daytime cigar, I love to spark one of these up on the weekend with a glass of chilled Californian white wine, the crisp and very fresh Napa Valley whites compliment the wood and flowers of this most modern Cuban cigar. A woodiness creeps into the cigar with divine subtleness and you can also experience hints of coffee in the second phase of this pretty Gloria. But back to food, two free range eggs, poached, a couple of rashers of Danish bacon, crispy, and one of these Panetelas make for a great breakfast or brunch combo. The Medaille d'Or No.4 is great for beginners because it is not threatening, being of medium strength, and displaying floral tendencies which are simple and uncomplex to the uniniciated palate. hopes you give them a go, at least once!!
