Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Cinco Robusto Description
When you ÃÃ´re surrounded by astounding modern success, sometimes you ÃÃ´ll find yourself longing for a taste of the old times that were simpler. We wonder if something like that inspired the creation of Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Cinco Robusto, a throwback to the humble cigarmaking traditions of the birthplace of cigars. Perhaps while tallying up all the awards and fielding endless requests for more OpusX, the Fuentes found themselves needing a bit of a breather to reflect on the ways of old Havana.
But how to you bring out Cuban flavors when you can ÃÃ´t get Cuban tobacco? You do the next best thing ÃÃ¬ use Cuban tobacco seeds and plant them somewhere else. For the Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Cinco Robusto, the wrapper is Ecuadorian Havana, a leaf that is quickly becoming quite famous for its robust taste and high oil content. Inside the cigar are Cuban-seed Dominican tobaccos, which round out the flavor profile.
Cuban seeds, other soil. It ÃÃ´s an evolution the cigar world has enjoyed for decades.
The notes in the resulting Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Cinco Robusto cigar are a mosaic of sweet maple, baking spices, and creamy chocolate, plus hits of pepper and dark roasted coffee on the finish. At some points, it can even give a little bit of tanginess ÃÃ¬ it ÃÃ´s a very interesting smoke. But at its core, it ÃÃ´s a taste of Cuba, made in the Cuban tradition, using methods handed down from Arturo, to Carlos Sr., to Carlito, and that we expect to be kept alive by a respect for the old ways that permeates many of the best cigar companies.
