La Gloria Cubana Medallie Dór No.4 25p
This cigar, despite the fact that does not need much ageing to be really good, develops great potential when properly aged. Pleasant fruity complex taste and aftertaste. Not very easy to find nowadays.
The wrapper is silky soft with little to no oily texture to it. It is a light brown color with no veins to speak of. A delicate little cigar. First draw is a very sweet hay and grass notes with a little cedar in the background. There are similar notes coming off the foot of the cigar. The draw is perfect and not tight at all. The first third develops a floral profile with almond and cedar notes in the background - wrapping up with hazelnut notes shining through the floral profile and very distinct cedar notes still in the background. The final third is flavoured with some nice dried fruit and leather notes in the background.
