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.
