A bold departure from La Gloria Cubana’s Dominican roots, Serie R Black is a Nicaraguan puro. Its blend begins with an audacious Jalapa ligero wrapper, and features tobacco from Jalapa and Esteli, with a Jalapa binder. Sourced from an independent grower, the Jalapa tobacco was fermented for an entire year, and aged for two and a half years, to deliver a refi ned smoking experience. Serie R Black is only available through internet/catalog retailers.With large ring vitolas, deep, rich fl avor and a bold Nicaraguan blend, La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black debuted as an unbeatable addition to the Serie R line. The trend continues with the addition of La Gloria Cubana Serie R Black Maduro. This deep and full-bodied smoke delivers a powerhouse of flavor, filled with pepper, earth and coffee notes and the slightly sweet, creamy taste that can only be found with an aged Maduro wrapper.
