Subject :: Rated #1 Cigar of the Year!
Los angeles, july 19, 2004 /prnewswire/ -- (LA CAROLINA HAS REPLACED CUPIDO, AS TABACALERA ESTELI IS NO LONGER MAKING CUPIDO. LA CAROLINA IS MADE WITH THE SAME TOBACCO, SAME BLEND AND BY THE SAME MASTER ROLLERS AS CUPIDO.) 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.
Subject :: Torpedo & robusto
These are very good and very mild with great flavor however it is just a little too sweet for me. Even with that i still enjoyed them.
Subject :: La carolina
At first glance the wrapper looks very nice, very firm between the fingers. Slight sweet taste when i wet the end before cutting. Entirely very enjoyable, with a even burn and very nice draw. Earthiness, creamy and hints of sweetness. Nice volume of smoke with a very pleasent aroma. If you haven't tried this one, i would highly recommend it.
Subject :: Tasty and mild
I have not smoked as much as any of you. But i wanted to try it with la carolina sampler. Open this nice gift box today of great looking cigars. Not smelly. Its a sweet taste. And i loved the mild thick smoke. Sow burning with a creamy feeling of chocolate. Great for me!
