    Here is my much belated review of the 2008 LGC MdO2 that Alan sent me to review for his "who wants to review a cigar" thread. Now that our 1200 mile relocation is done and we're mostly unpacked I figured firing this puppy up was a fitting way to welcome in the weekend and celebreate the relo...

    Earthy and floral. A big surprise. Lots of flavor in such a small ring. Problem is they are hard to come by lately. Squirrel some away if you find em Read the full review here: La Gloria Cubana (Cuba) Medaille d'Or No. 4 Cigar Review - Excellent little smoke

    La Gloria Cubana Medaille D'or no. 1 7.22 x 36 Jun 02 Back Patio 65 degrees Paired with hot vanilla chai tea Construction: Beautiful very light wrapper, no veins. It is my ideal draw, not quite effortless but no where close to having to draw hard. Each draw brings in copious amounts of...

    It was my first aged cigar. I managed to get in my grandgrandma's empty house(unheated, but it was about 8C inside) in order to smoke this cigar. They were resting for 3 weeks and I cannot resist to their smell :bounce: The 1/3 started with perfect draw and burn and sweet floral flavours. No...

    Different. That's the operative word with these. Not a long review; passing kidney stone/s and in quite a lot of pain intermittently, not prone to writing much just now. From 2007; flavors at lighting: pure floral, vegetal...very much the essence of cut flowers, fresh produce. An astringent...

    Box from 10-01. Great construction and balance. Nice sweet bread flavors with hints of cinnamon. Built nicely up to a great ending. Aroma of graham crackers. Starts medium and finishes medium full.

    I haven't had a Medaille D'or No.1 in quite some time. These are Circa 2002 and have been stored at 65% RH. I really love the La Gloria Cubana Medaille D'or No.1. It's a mild to medium bodied cigar with lots of floral/fruity flavors to it that pair very well with a nice hoppy ale. It would...

    This was a very interesting cigar. Features a small and fine gauge which takes skill to enjoy. The wrapper had some veins but rolled well. Upon lighting there was a generous amount of floral and woody aroma. As the smoking continued the flavors continued to strengthen which was very...

    Man was this a good cigar. Perfect for a wamr summer evening. The prelight draw on this guy was light, but had a bit of a tea flavor. It took a light very easily and the first draw confirmed the tea flavor. Very light smoke and tight draw. I would say this is do to the RG of this slender cigar...

    Looking for some opinions on the #1's and/or #2's ... both aged and young. Really don't have much experience with LGC but both of these have caught my attention. I hear they are not a powerhouse. But I like the thin rg and I'm intrigued by the flavor profiles in the limited reviews I've seen...

    Been holding on to this one for a while now, received in a NST trade from ResIpsa. Since it's cold as a witch's tit in a brass bra here, I brewed up some nice vintage earl grey and headed out to the herfin' shack. Pre-light: very nice construction...slim, oily, and a touch veiny. It's like...

    La Gloria Cubana Médaille d'Or n°1 I've had several of these from '02 and have (another) box en route. This cigar is amazingly complex and runs from light herby floral notes at the start to rich mocha goodness towards the end. It is a new favorite of mine and an outstanding way to spend 1.5...

    Perfectly rolled and presented cigars in a varnished box. LGC’s are one of the few brands that are exclusively hand made and “OSU” is a factory that also makes a lot of Cohibas. Never once did it go out or need an adjustment and the cigars were a little more humid that I would normally keep...

    This cigar is from 1998. It is one of my favorite brands. Variations of the panatella are among my favorite sizes, and I'm always surprised at the complexity and body with the thinner ring guages. Upon lighting, the cigar was very spicy and took me by surprise. The other 10 and 7 year old...

    this was a nice looking corona 6.25" x 43 with a beautiful, shiny Ecuador wrapper with quite a bit of tooth to it...construction was perfect, not to full, not to soft...clipped and lit easily, nice draw, plenty of smoke...started off sweet and spicy, with a nice tingle to the tongue and...
