Why go to Vegas if you want to avoid Vegas? Well, sometimes when you’re there, you need a little break. You need a refuge from all the lights, sounds, people, heat… the everything. You need to recharge for a bit before regrouping and hitting the town harder than ever.
That place, for cigar smokers, is a cigar lounge called Casa Fuente. You’ll find the lounge inside Caesar’s Palace, among the Forum shops. Many people swear by it as one of the best places in Vegas to enjoy a fine smoke and an equally fine cocktail or two. There you can also enjoy a special house cigar line called Casa Fuente (what a surprise!).
Casa Fuente cigars are somewhat mysterious. They’re referred to as “tweaked” versions of the Fuente Fuente OpusX Forbidden X line. That means a secret blend of Dominican tobaccos, plus whatever wrapper the company decides is appropriate. In this case, the Casa Fuente core line is wrapped in aged red Cameroon leaf.
But, as we said, they’re not just wrapping up any old blend.
If this is Forbidden X-style, you’re getting a mix of 7 distinctive tobaccos, each chosen from the most flavorful primings in the Fuente plantations. Forbidden X sticks are then bundled and aged in Calvados casks (French apple brandy) to absorb a spirited aroma and transform into something quite special. We’re honestly not sure if that was done with these. Like we said, not everything was disclosed when it comes to this one.
Entering into the rolling room where these exclusive cigars are made is, of course, forbidden. But lighting up the product? You’ve got an open invitation to do that any time you please.
