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.

I ordered a box of La Carolina Capitan because of my previous experience with cupido. This one is made with the same blend and wrapper. This is a wonderful cigar that almost defies description, but here goes: slightly creamy and has a heady floral aroma. I find it is smooth, not quite as much as the cupido, but this may change with some time in the humidor. I never could taste nuts in a cigar like others, but let me tell you this La Carolina has awesome flavor that builds in intensity as you smoke it. It has a pleasant mild spiciness that starts to increase about halfway down. It has a slightly fruit-like flavor that's very pleasing. I smoked one yesterday down to the nub and will be ordering more of these. bravo! Don Kiki. Jim mc Hermosa Beach, ca.

I am on my 3rd box of La Carolina Capitan in two years. When I first pulled these cigars out at a party no one had ever smoked them. Instantly they were a hit among my cigar friends. One had actually pulled out his iphone and ordered a box off this website. To this day this cigar has been the best smoke my friends and I have ever had together.
