When you're surrounded by astounding modern success, sometimes you'll find yourself longing for a taste of the old times that we're simpler. We wonder if something like that inspired the creation of Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Cinco Robusto, a throwback to the humble cigar making 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't get Cuban tobacco? You do the next best thing, 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'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, it's a very interesting smoke. But at its core, it'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.
Fast shipping. Quality cigars. Had some hard to find gems that other dealers are out of stock. Will shop here again.

Best cigar I’ve tried.
I’ve smoked Davidoff, Fuente, Oliva, Cuban Montecristo #2, Man O’ War, Santeria, A. Flores, and pretty much every cigar available today. Then I tried Casa Cuba…the last formula by Old Man Fuente before he died. This is undoubtedly the finest cigar I’ve ever smoked…better than Opus X and all the other Fuente showings. Fuente makes sure their cigars are in demand. For example, the Cigar of the Year for 2017 was Eye of the Shark. Fuente refused to let anybody roll these except two people…keeping the demand up and the supply down. It’s a common tactic with Fuente. I was able to purchase seven boxes of these Casa Cuba Doble Cinco, and they became my first ‘go-to’ cigar. For years I tried this and that, never really settling on a preferred cigar…Casa Cuba Doble Cinco has become that cigar, but is not the same as the other sizes. Try them all, but I urge you to try these, it’s a taste of Old Cuba you really don’t want to miss.
I first heard of this cigar when it received a 93 rating in Cigar Aficionado's July/August 2021 issue, and I decided I had to try it. After searching the internet for some time, I discovered that Cigars Direct was one if the few stores that would actually ship the order to my home. Their price was discounted, and the shipping was fast. I've smoked 2 of the cigars, and they are unique, different then any other cigar I've smoked in my 30 years of cigar smoking. I can't quite pin down the unique flavor other than to say it is one of the most interesting cigars I've smoked, and I'm overjoyed I bought a box.
Good stuff !
Great cigar, fast delivery, thaanks !
I believe this is my favorite Fuentes cigar. It has everything you want in a cigar depth of flavor, great draw, and perfect construction. It reminds me of Cubans when they were great!
