LA CAROLINA Gran Robusto Cigars are 5 1/2 inches long with a Ring Gauge of 50. They are meticulously box-pressed and each is totally hand made with aged long leaf Binder and Fillers, wrapped in extra premium Wrappers. Every hand rolled cigar is made by the expert hands of the traditional Torcedores of Tabacalera Esteli. Just as the Cupido Cigars brand that these cigars were previously made under, LA CAROLINA Gran Robusto are boxed in beautiful Cedar boxes handmade from the finest trees in the mountains of Nicaragua. They have that special naturally fruity tobacco taste and low nicotine content that made Cupido Cigars the top rated medium body cigar in America.
Each is handmade under extremely high quality standards and in very limited quantities. Only 7,000 boxes of cigars are available yearly. This is the same great tobacco and blend that was used by Tabacalera Esteli to make Cupido Cigars, and that gained Cupido the distinction of the number 1 rated medium-bodied cigar in America. Cupido is no longer being made but if you enjoyed them, you will be delighted by LA CAROLINA cigars. LA CAROLINA is alone in its ability to provide great flavor, smoothness, and consistency.

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.
