ARTURO FUENTE DON CARLOS
WRAPPER: Cameroon BINDER: Dominican Republic FILLER: Dominican Republic
The Fuente family, a renowned cigar-crafting family, lives by the motto “we will never rush the hands of time.” It is this commitment to quality that makes Fuente cigars some of the most sought after pieces by enthusiasts around the world. The artisans’ high standards are reflected with the highly-esteemed Arturo Fuente Don Carlos. This special blend was crafted by Carlos Fuente Jr. to honor his father – the patriarch of the Arturo Fuente brand and the namesake of this medium-bodied masterpiece.
The Dominican aged long-fillers and binder are held together by a lusciously dark, African Cameroon wrapper. While cocoa and nuts resonate as the most dominant flavors, they’re complimented by a sweet cedar and a mildly spiced smoke. Simply put, the Arturo Fuente cigar delivers a nuanced complexity that only grows in richness with each faultless draw of these medium-full smokes.
The Fuente family’s commitment to quality is evident in the Don Carlos’ impeccable burn and utter craftsmanship. The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos has earned a coveted 94 rating on Cigar Aficionado and aficionados everywhere should immediately get their hands on a box – or two.
