The Fuente name, combined with top Cameroon wrappers and fine Dominican long-filler tobaccos make this well-aged cigar a highly sought after commodity. Each exquisitely rolled specimen delivers flavors of nuttiness, sweetness, earth, and a very smooth black pepper through the retrohale. Enjoy it on it’s own, or pair this one up with your favorite single-malt — either way, you’re going to enter complete bliss.
Arturo Fuente Don Carlos received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#4 overall) and a well-deserved 94-rating, a 97-rating, and the #1 Cigar of the Year for 2017: “Its wrapper-to-filler ratios resulted in a perfect combination of the Cameroon cover leaf’s sweet-and-sour properties along with the Dominican binder and filler, which gave the cigar a zesty, nutty quality full of shaved almonds and candied orange peel.”
This complex belicoso starts earthy and leathery before taking on a graham cracker character buttressed by vanilla bean, brown sugar and a profoundly nutty finish.
