i will NEVER buy another La Gloria as they are the most inconsistantly rolled cigars i`ve ever had...........last couple of weeks i`ve tossed about 8 of `em for bad burn,no taste,peeling wrappers,etc.............down with LGC....IMHO......u
I've been smoking LGC boxes after boxes, both Miami and DR, Natural and Maduro, all the shapes 5" or shorter including Serie R, and I've never had such problems. Well, maybe not "never", but anyway "very rare". Your vendor might have kept them in bad conditions...
Upon reading this post, I looked back at my notes and, sure enough, except for the Serie R, LGCs have consistently had construction or uneven burn probelms, even with extended humi time and coming from several different vendors.
I find LGCs to be all over the chart with regard to burn and flavor.
Some sizes are the worst cigars I have ever smoked. A couple remain my all time favorites. So why the big difference? Who knows, I've given away so many LGCs it breaks my heart. I've given some to dog rocket smokers and they didn't like them either. Corona Gorda and Soberano in maduro are wonderful, IMHO the rest mostly suck, Miami or DR.
