The renaissance of black tobacco has been a trend in the last few years. The Serie R Black released by Cigar company La Gloria Cubana of Miami for the serious cigar smoker is a representation of this trend.
The first Nicaraguan puro from La Gloria Cubana, all components of the Serie R Black are of Nicaraguan origin including viso leaves from Jalapa and Esteli cultivated in small amounts on the mountainsides there by independent tobacco farmer Pedro Joaquin Guardian. The unique blend is enhanced by a Jalapa ligero wrapper. The components of this cigar are from the 2009 crop, aged 2.5 years after undergoing a year of fermentation.
La Gloria Cubana created this collection as a boutique small-batch cigar to be a more refined smoking experience.
