ABOUTArturo Fuente Lost City
In the Caribbean basin, cigar tobacco is normally planted in the beginning of the year and harvested in the spring. Thus, Carlito Fuente of Arturo Fuente Cigars initially intended the summer crop only as a setting for Garcias movie. Garcia, though, had other ideas. “When we finished shooting the scene, I asked Carlito what he was going to do with the tobacco,” Garcia recalled. “He said if the tobacco was good hed use it. I suggested using it to make cigars with the logo from The Lost City, and that the project would benefit his foundation” — the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, which provides education and health services to communities in the Dominican Republic.
After five years of careful aging, the summer-grown tobacco turned out to be superb: a leaf exhibiting all the celebrated complexity of the original Fuente Fuente OpusX wrapper, but with a unique character all its own. The medium-to-full body, and complex and sophisticated flavors of the summer-grown wrapper make Fuente Fuente OpusX The Lost City a distinctive experience for any cigar connoisseurs, no matter what their taste or preference.
