Serie R® has always stood for rich, bold taste. But the spirit of discovery is laced throughout Team La Gloria Cubana® and it compels us to journey beyond our past successes and into untapped fields and obscure aging barns where great new flavors await. And on a mountainside high above the Jalapa Valley floor, that’s where our journey for a new Serie R® began when we found rare Jalapa leaf that practically begged us to create great things.
Yet the creation of great things often unfolds differently than planned. And that’s exactly what happened when not one, but two great blends bested the rest in the race to become the next Serie R®.
By design, both were super flavorful Nicaraguan puros blended from a host of Nicaraguan tobaccos from farms throughout the northwest, including those from the Jalapa Valley and in particular that from the Jalapa mountainside. And while their quality separated them from other blends, it was their distinctiveness from one another that made the decision difficult.
And ultimately drove us to launch both.
Team La Gloria Cubana® is proud to introduce La Gloria Cubana® Serie R® Black and La Gloria Cubana® Serie R® Estelí.
