Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Cigars
Arturo Fuente Don Carlos
The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos is perhaps the most overlooked cigar in the entire Fuente line-up. Named after and blended by the family's patriarch, Carlos Fuente Sr. himself, the Don Carlos is a classic Fuente creation with legendary balance. This extraordinary balance is achieved by taking the Fuente's top quality Cameroon wrapper and draping it over Dominican binder and fillers. Made at Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia, the same factory responsible for the Opus X, Ashton VSG, Fuente Añejo and Hemingway lines, the Don Carlos is crafted by some of the most skilled rollers at the award-winning factory. Fuente makes the Don Carlos in seven regular sizes: Presidente (6 1/2 x 50), Double Robusto (5 3/4 x 52), No.2 (6 x 55), No.3 (5 1/2 x 44), No.4 (5 1/8 x 43), Belicoso (5 3/8 x 52) and Robusto (5 1/4 x 50).
The wrapper might be ugly, the flavor is anything but. It's classic Cameroon with sweet nuttiness, coffee, cocoa and woodsiness. The Dominican fillers offer a bit of cedar, pepper and an overall smoothness that is unmatched. The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos is full in flavor, medium-full in body and medium in strength. Construction is what you would expect from Fuente, as the Don Carlos uses some of the oldest tobacco in the deep stocks of Fuente. For those looking for a celebration cigar that is understated, yet never outdone, the Don Carlos from Fuente is a perfect choice. In the words of the man himself, "My dream wasn't to be the biggest, it was to be the best."
