I recently purchased La Gloria Cubana serie R maduro's on cigar bid and they came with sweetened tips. AWFUL!! I emailed them twice and no response. How do I get this rectified? there was no mention of sweetened tips on the description.

You’re not the only one with an issue with the sweetened caps:

You could search key terms likeLa Gloria Serie R sweetened, but it'd be easier to click the link Palama provided. He's not cbid historian just for his pretty face.

I don't think you'll get much from customer service on this one given evidence of their responsiveness lately

If you search "Gloria Cubana" or even just scroll down s bit, you get the link above.


If you search "customer service" or even just scroll down a bit, you see many many posts on that topic..

thanks midmofan, I think I get the picture. No customer service, just give my suger sticks to someone who likes them, and buy from cigar big at my own risk.

Bravo! Now you have your big boy pants on.

FWIW, I bought a ten pack of them and found that if you aggressively cut the cap/end off, it removes most of the sweetened tip, leaving a mostly enjoyable cigar.

Got some series r with sweet tip. Cap is extremely sweet. Tasted after removing. I like the cigars when modified.
Would be a fan if not for this issue.
Are all Rs like this now?

I was once known as a Glorious Senegalese with a sweet tip.

But now I fear it is bitter and hateful. Because I find my lover has a family without telling me.

Opie always said I had a sweet tip.

I am going to find you my little opie. It will be like when we would play desnudo al escondite in a sweaty senegal hotel room all night.

MR. POTATO HEAD!!! MR. POTATO HEAD! I have the Serie R Sumatra here and smoked one that had been aged for almost two years just a few weeks ago. While it is a semi sweet smoke your candy arse sugar coated sweet tip is your wet dream fantasy.Love Love Love

And Gurkha MSRP's are legit. Puff n' Stuff still has the glass tube Beauty going for $30 and the Crest going for $27! Just because they have been sitting there for 13 years doesn't mean it isn't a FACT!LOL LOL LOL

Could the sweetness be coming from the glue on the cap?

Smoked one yesterday with a buddy, who had purchased them at a local shpo, and thought the same thing. I didn't mnd the "sweet cap" TOO much. It just kinda caught me off guard.

He'll probably throw some sugar on it for you next time... might even blast some Def Leapord for you.

There is no fiesta in these cornpop flavored smokes. You are giving them to much credit. I'll stick with what I know and like already. Definitely Fords though.
