Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva #55

Grown at the Chateau Fuente farm, the Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva #55 is an extremely limited and rare cigar that is hard to find. Lucky for you, we have included it in this week’s sampler. What makes this cigar so unique is that it uses the same tobaccos for the filler as the Opus X and is only released twice a year.

Wrapped in a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper, with the binder and filler from the Dominican Republic, the Anejo Reserva #55 is aged in cognac barrels for five years before being released to the public. This full-bodied smoke has flavor notes of black pepper, cocoa, earth, and dried fruit. Once you’ve enjoyed a few hours of swimming, and have scarfed down a burger or two, I’d light up the Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva #55 and soak in the sun.

CAO Gold Maduro

Leave it to CAO to mix things up and ends up turning out to be a worldwide success. The CAO Gold Maduro is a darker rendition of the popular gold series. The wrapper on the Gold Series was this silky blonde Ecuador Connecticut leaf. But founder Ricky Rodriguez decided to take the challenge upon himself to switch things up.

In true CAO fashion, The Gold Maduro in the Robusto size is cloaked in a dark wrapper that hails from Brazil. While the tobaccos that make up the binder are from Nicaragua and the fillers tobaccos come from Honduras and Nicaragua. The creamy, smooth notes the CAO Gold Maduro provides are a mixture of chocolate, coffee, cedar, leather, and raisins. Starting your July 4th festivities off with the medium-bodied Gold Maduro from CAO may be your best bet!
