Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario
The Arturo Fuente Cigar Company is a world wide powerhouse. They have a line for every price range a palate and have become titans of the cigar industry. For over 30 years, Arturo Fuente, under the leadership of father and son team Carlos and Carlito, have made some of the worlds finest and most sought after blends, including the famed Opus X. From their origins in Nicaragua, to the now famous Chateau Fuente in the Dominican Republic, Fuente cigars are a mainstay in every cigar shop in the U.S. To commemorate their noble leader, Fuente came out with a limited release of the Don Carlos line, but with a surprising twist.
Introducing the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario, a spectacular, yet very limited cigar that Fuente released in 2008. It commemorates 30 years of the Don Carlos line, which was produced even before the company moved to the Dominican Republic. It uses the same great Dominican filler and binder, although it is aged significantly longer. The biggest change is the wrapper. The toothy Cameroon wrapper is replaced with a spicy Dominican leaf, the same used on Carlito’s Opus X. It is rich sweet and spicy, with splendid notes of almonds, pepper, and cocoa. It is available in 3 different sizes and an assorted 5-pack.
These cigars are extremely limited so make sure to get them while you can. Less then 10,000 were initially released. They were voted to cigar Aficionados top 25 the year they were released, coming in at an outstanding number 5. This well balanced medium to full bodied is smooth flavor and exquisite. If you are a fan of Fuente, the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario needs to be your next choice. And guess what?!? You can get them right here at JR Cigar
