La Gloria Cubana is one of the oldest Cuban cigar brands. It was created in 1885 by Cabana y Castro, and 20 years later it was sold on to Jose F. Rocha. In 1955 the company changed hands again, when it was sold on to the Cinfuentes family, along with Bolivar. Since then, the La Gloria Cubana cigars have been made in the Partagas Factory in Havana.
La Gloria Cubana have been made popular for producing long and slender cigars, with the Medaille D' Or series being a classic example of the marca. They have a mild to medium body and spicy, vegetal flavours, with the salty touch as the cigars age.
