Cuban Crafters Cupido Tuxedo Churchill Maduro Cigar Review

This 7×52 stick offers a dark chocolate wrapper with tight seams, minimal veins, a firm very dense pack and an oily sweet aroma. First light reveals a great draw, minimal but rich smoke production with flavors of a medium bodied smooth an oily sweet tobacco with a short earthy finish. The first third develops to a medium body of smooth leather, oily slightly sweet caramel and a short clean oily finish. Smoke output is normal, draw remains good, and the burn is almost razor sharp. 40 min in almost to the 1/2 way point, flavors have turned very rich and creamy giving nice desert like tastes. The leather died down and the overall experience is lighter than the first third. The caramel is pronounced like a creme broule and the finish is oily and short with just a hint of pepper. The end of the 2nd third brought a rich earth and a longer finish. The last third continued the same flavor profile, ending the smoke at 1:45 to the nub where it started getting warm for my taste. Thank you very much to Cuban Crafters for sending this sample for review, I greatly appreciate it!

    I was happily surprised to watch and listen to your review on the Cupido Tuxedo, as it is my favorite cigar from Cuban Crafters. Great review and I concur with your comments.

    By the way, on my last visit to Miami (about a month ago) I also picked up the Cuban Crafters Black Perfect Cutter, per your review. It really is excellent and I never have to worry about cutting too much of the cigar with this tool.

    I bought the Perfect Cutter but I am not sure what is the reason, sometimes when I cut a cigar it will not be even I don’t know is because I am not using a right way or I need to sharp it. Can you tell me what is the right way to use it, do I have to put the cigar head into the whole or something?

    Thank You

  • You use it exactly as shown in almost all my videos. Put the cigar in straight until it hits the back. Cut. Simple.

    Are they fairly prevelent in b&m’s? I’m only finding them by the box online, and only at the cuban crafters website. Thanks.

    I’ve bought a DE Java Maduro cigar and it seemed like a fat stick, and it really was a fat stick as it wouldn’t fit into my cutter. What to do in situations like that to not damage the tip of the cigar? :s

      Use a bigger cutter and if you don’t have one carefully use a knife to cut around the sides of it then seperate it.

    Looks like a great cigar. I am not too big on too much spice and pepper. I think I will pick one up
