La Gloria Cubano is one of the worlds most trusted and sought-after cigar brands in the world today. Dating back to 1885 Cuba the brand is currently manufactured in the Dominican Republic using the same quality, and craftsmanship aficionados have come to expect.
The Obelisco is the final installment of the Artesanos trilogy, created to pay homage to the artisan cigar makers of the El Credito factory in the Dominican Republic. The groundbreaking figurado shape of the cigar and the unique wooden demilune box were inspired by the iconic Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration, located above the center of Santiago.
These beauties are flawlessly constructed with a hearty blend of double Nicaraguan ligero and aged Dominican long-filler tobaccos, a spicy Connecticut broadleaf binder, and a flavorful, dark, oily ‘Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. The flavor is complex, to the say the least, with notes of coffee, pepper, cedar, and earth, the Obelisco is truly an amazing smoke.
A must have for those that enjoy a more flavorful, full-bodied cigar.
