The Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario Double Robusto has been selected as oneof the top 5 cigars of 2008 by Cigar Aficionado.
"The Fuente family has been making Arturo Fuente Don Carlos cigars since 1976, longer (by four years) than they havebeen making cigars in the Dominican Republic.
The blend is the creation of Carlos Fuente Sr.,patriarch of the family. In 2006,his son, Carlos Fuente Jr., made the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario to celebrate the 30 years of Don Carlos cigars.He swapped out the Cameroon wrapper for the Dominican shade-grown leaf he uses on Fuente Fuente OpusX.
He also boosted the cigars power considerably.The result is a tremendously intense and complex blend - - - -." Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was chosen as Best of the Best by Robb Report(June 2007). “- - - - wrapped in aged Dominican tobaccos from Château de la Fuente.
The rich and oily wrapper belies the idea that a dark leaf produces a harshly strong taste; it offers a sugary-chocolate flavor.The taste of the Dominican binder and filler blend is rich and spicy, like that of a New York strip steak without sauce, and the tobacco is so well-aged and -rolled that during our blind testing, I tried to tap off an inch-long ash and it would not budge.”
