Few premium cigar companies have the respect and reputation that Arturo Fuente deservedly carries. From their earliest days they have followed the mantra of “Never Rush the Hands of Time.” Sounds nice, doesn’t it? But what does that have to do with premium cigars? Simply put, they will not make more cigars than they are capable of producing well. Production volume at the expense of quality does not exist in a Fuente factory. Since 1912, this reputation has allowed them to plot their own course and not bend to market pressure for more cigars. The Fuente portfolio is built of several core lines that include instantly recognizable names such as Gran Reserva, Hemingway, OpusX, Don Carlos, and in this case Chateau Fuente. Each line has a special meaning to the Fuente family, and each line is constructed with care.

Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Don Carlos, and true Fuente fans will recognize that this is not an event to be taken lightly. It features a well-aged sun grown Habano wrapper, which just happens to be the same type used for the ever-popular Opus X. Beneath the hood, a choice blend of 2-year-aged choice Dominican long-fillers rounds out this mix. The creamy, unique flavor profile is perfectly complemented by the excellent construction and even draw. And talk about limited edition....these beauties are released in small quantities, which makes them extremely hard to find. So go ahead, and fitfully honor your special occasion with a truly superior cigar experience. Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario has received ratings as high as 94-points, noting: "a tremendously intense and complex blend, especially in the Double Robusto size."
