Fine cigar maker Jose Alonso first started LA CAROLINA during the 1840’s. This master roller knew he could make the best cigars in Cuba, and he did. One cigar party in Havana is all it took. The high quality and exceptional taste elevated the brand to become one of Cuba’s most demanded cigars. They became the life of the party and 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, they are crafted with exceptional hand-selected tobacco leaves and ligero from Tabacalera Esteli’s special harvest. Each leaf is first quality and comparable in looks and 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 first was good, the second magnficent, the third simply sublime! These are the epitome' of cigar "crafting" and a perfect size and taste to really get enjoyment out of. I bought box out of the blue and thought i would see how they were. Much to my surprise, I found a new friend lurking in the woods and will add them to my stash and will continue to enjoy them as long as they are available. Buy em up before i do. Thank you cuban crafters! Paul r, huntingdon, pa

This is by far one of the best one could smoke! I highly recommend jumping on this whenever it is available! Limited production hampers availability so when in stock, do not pass up the toro oscuro. You will absolutely love this medium bodied, rich taste. David in plano,tx

Wonderful and well crafted. Burns evenly smokes even better. I have smoked three so far and all have been perfectly consistent. Smooth, deep, rich and complex. Faint spice is all one can really make out. The flavor truly is unique.
