At one time, to experience "The Glory of Cuba," you had to live in or travel to Little Havana where people would line up for hours waiting to taste a cigar that was a phenomenon. Now La Gloria Cubana is a favorite of cigar smokers everywhere. The brand, popularized by Ernesto Perez-Carillo, was actually started by his father while, as a young adult, Ernesto traveled the world making a living as a jazz musician. Ultimately the family business beckoned and he returned home to Miami to embrace his heritage. Since then, production has moved to the Dominican Republic where the majority of the brand’s cigars are produced, but the smoke we bring you this month was handmade at El Titan De Bronze™ Cigar Mfg in Little Havana, Miami, Florida. Family owned and operated, El Titan De Bronze was named after Antonio Maceo Grajales who was second in command of the Cuban Army of Independence in the mid to late 1800s. Men under Maceo's command began to name him "The Bronze Titan" because of his exceptional physical strength and resistance to bullet and blade injuries.
