La Gloria Cubana Invicto: the unlit cigar reveals aromas  of wood and citrus fruits, joined by slight hints of pepper.

The opening is delicately salty, with a good acid component that does not overhealms, but rather facilitates the perception of the smoke. A spicy sensation is also perceptible after a few moments. Wood and citrus, with nuances of cocoa and pepper. Also present is a slight ammoniac component, which shows a certain the youth of the cigar. Strength is medium-light (2/5).

In the second thir, the acidity gives way to a delicate sweetness, which is on par with the saltyness, that has remained unchanged. The flavors evolve towards notes of honey and peanuts, preserving those of the wood, while the citrus fruits fade away but remain in the background. Strength increases, becoming medium (3/5).

There isn’t much difference going on in the last third. However at the end of the smoke it is not at all disappointing.

Overall, the cigar is mechanically impeccable, perfect both in draw and combustion. Complexity, balance and evolution are more than good. Only the flavor persistancy and the few aromas developed in the second third contract the final grade. A good regional edition, with a potential, that will surely improve over time.
