Fine cigar maker Jose Alonso started LA CAROLINA during the 1840’s. This master roller knew he could make the best cigars in Cuba, and he did. The high quality and exceptional taste elevated the brand to become one of Cuba’s most demanded cigars. They became the cigars that aficionados in Cuba smoked. Now once again they are available to just a few cigar aficionados. Handmade in small batches with extraordinary attention to each and every detail, these cigars are crafted with exceptional hand-selected tobacco leaves from Tabacalera Esteli’s special harvest. Each leaf is comparable in looks and in taste as those that Jose Alonso hand rolled. Those who have the opportunity to smoke them will insist that they were made by Jose Alonso himself.

Los angeles, july 19, 2004 /prnewswire/ -- To say that smokers "love" the cupido brand, with its portrait of the love god cupid astride a red heart, is more than a pun. The nicaraguan-made boutique brand proved its standing as an elite blend once again by being ranked no.1 among medium-bodied cigars available on the U.S. Market by cigarcyclopedia.com. "This blend offers the deepest flavors of fruit with not a trace of bitterness or spice," noted editor-in-chief Rich Perelman. "It's an amazing achievement, especially in its original churchill size." Manufactured in nicaragua at the Tabacalera Esteli, cupido beat out a host of high-profile brands including the arturo fuente hemingway series, avo classic, davidoff's special series, h. Upmann, romeo y julieta and others.

The torpito is one of the finest cigars i've ever smoked, and i've been smoking premium cigars for the past 20 years. The wrapper looked like velvet, the draw was perfect and the taste was smooth with a toasted nut flavor. It tasted so good that i found myself inhaling. I have since purchased 2 more boxes and i'm sure they won't be the last.

As a first time buyer from your site, i am very impressed with the quality. Don't be fooled by their short stature as they are long in flavor and smoking time. The smooth, sweet beginning moved into a nice nutty middle with a smooth robust finish. It drew evenly throughout the smoke.

I have enjoyed the sweet, rich flavour of the carolina corona for a while now, so when you featured the Torpito as a special offer i decided to try them. From the first draw I was impressed, they have everything the corona has but more so! They are sweet, rich, even burning, and delicious! The perfect after dinner smoke. Despite their stature these are a long and satisfying. I love them! Friends that smoke have agreed, so i will soon be ordering more.

Outstanding flavor consistency during whole smoke. Very little bite. Just smooth flavor. Not overpowering.

A great cigar on its own right, but definately not the same as the cupido. Rick from wa.
