I ran into Lilo at IPCPR and talked about his newest release the Capa Caliente. I am not afraid to tell someone when the cigar they make isn’t good. I love the Cremo Classic and told Lilo on CigarChat that I didn’t like the Cremo Maduro. I smoked one Capa Caliente at IPCPR and even on a nuked palate I enjoyed it. Now lets see if my experience is the same four months after IPCPR.

Below is taken from Cremo’s website about the Capa Caliente.

The Capa Caliente is a powerhouse, plain and simple. The beautiful cigar is wrapped in a wonderful Dark Habano wrapper. This gives this cigar a good kick of pepper. The Nicaraguan filler and binder provide oak, leather and red pepper. This cigar is full bodied, and for any smoker looking for strength.

Cremo Cigars has a really cool history. Take a second and read about it here. Also, you can read the press release about the Cremo Capa Caliente here.

Lets do this!

Cremo Cigars Capa Caliente

Vitola: Robusto

Size: 5 x 50

Wrapper: Habano

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Dominican/Nicaragua

Beverage: Sweet Tea

Cigars Smoked for this Review: Two

Smoking Time: 85 Minutes

Like with every Cremo made in El Titan de Bronze, the construction is on point. It blows me away every time how tightly Cremo’s are rolled, and how effortless the draw is. The red glossy band is a nice back drop against the very dark habano wrapper.

There was tons of black pepper up front with a dash of red pepper. It reminded me of chili flakes. The more I smoke the Cremo Capa Caliente the spicier it got, and the more it reminds me of India food.

There were hints of cedar on the back of my tongue. There is a very raw leather flavor that I really enjoy about the Capa Caliente. This leather flavor increased in intensity the more I smoked into the Capa Caliente. Also, there was a very nice earthiness about the Capa Caliente which was enjoyable.


I think this is hands down the best Cremo yet, but it won’t be for everyone. I think the Capa Caliente would set Dustin’s a****** on fire. If you gravitate toward milder cigars, this isn’t the cigar for you. If you typically like spicy full bodied cigars, you will enjoy the Capa Caliente. It is hard to beat the price point at $8 dollars considering it is rolled in Miami.

I think it is worth a try hands down, and for me I would seriously consider buying a box.

Final Notes

The Capa Caliente is one of the most densely rolled cigars I have ever seen in my life.

Jerad got this picture of a Cremo Classic he smoked at IPCPR this year. This would win every “dat ash” contest.

I wrote this review from my hotel balcony overlooking the Nashville airport. I pretty much froze my ass off.

Hahahahahahaha I've been looking at my sample and crying in pain before I even smoked it.  I'm going to review it soon and hit up a bunch of full bodied stuff.  El Titan de Bronze is the bizniz, I did not know that is where they are made.  They make amazing smokes there man.  I really need to try the classic.  If you get your hands on some let me know.

I wonder how it compares in strength to the El Cobre.

Catfish - it will blow you up for sure. I think you would really like the classic and maduro. If I can get my mitts on either I would happily trade for the Capa you have.

Surgeon - are you talking about the La Perla?
