Considered by many to be the best in the range, the No. 2 is medium in
strength and body and again aimed at those who do not wish a knock out
blow of flavours and aromas. An exceedingly smooth cigar with an
underlying sweetness, that is balanced with lots of cedar and a touch
of spiciness. Very enjoyable.
LA GLORIA CUBANA CIGARS
This is another rather old brand that dates from 1885, developed by Jose Rocha and Rafael Garcia. La Gloria Cubana (the "Glory of Cuba") are a small, but beautifully crafted, range. The Medaille d'Or 1,2,3 and 4 selection could be likened to drinking a good chardonnay. Medium in strength, words like toasted nuts, caramel,spices and smoothly flowing honey come to mind. Sabrosos have a lighter character with distinct flowery, pepper and vanilla overtones.
Medaille dOr No.2: CA 89.
