This cigar is the ideal everyday smoke, great with a coffee watching the world go by.

The La Gloria Cubana Medaille d’Or No. 4 Cigar is a favourite of many aficionados seeking an elegant and slim vitola. A rare example of the Palmitas vitola – measuring 152mm by a slim 32 ring gauge, this smoke bucks the trend of the ever increasing thickness of Cuban cigars. Providing a medium-bodied smoke, the typical La Gloria Cubana flavours are present, giving a complex, smooth and refined experience.

The La Gloria Cubana marca is an old one, although not nearly the oldest marca still in existence today. Established in 1885 by the Sociedad Cabañas y Castro, the La Gloria Cubana name switched hands a few times and was even discontinued once in the 1900’s before being revived and rolled again at the Partagás factory in 1965. The marca has been rolled there ever since, however ,many vitolas have fallen to the discontinuation ax along the way.

With only two regular production vitolas for the entire marca it has one of the smallest current lines for all of Habanos S.A. tying with a few other marcas but being beaten out by Diplomáticos, which only has one vitola left. The two remaining cigars are the Medaille d’Or No.2 and the Medaille d’Or No.4.

La Gloria Cubana seems to have more defeats in the discontinuation war against smaller ring gauge cigars than other marcas, losing the following vitolas all within the last decade:
