Can this family make a cigar, or what?
As if the Don Carlos line wasn’t fine enough, “Carlito” (Carlos Fuente, Jr., Don Carlos’s son) had to go and kick it up a notch. The secret is in the wrapper. The classic Don Carlos line uses an African Cameroon wrap, while the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario uses a Fuente Fuente OpusX Dominican shade wrapper.
The result will hit you right in the taste buds. It’s bold, intense, and full of flavor. But surprisingly, the core note winds up being sweet chocolate. You’ll also get plenty of rich spice from the aged Dominican filler blend.
But why mess with such a fine cigar? What brought it on?
Well, like all multi-generational cigar companies, the Fuentes love to celebrate milestones with special edition cigars. The Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario is a way to celebrate 30 years of the Don Carlos blend, which was first rolled up in 1976 by Carlos Fuente, Sr. himself.
It’s rich, oily, and will give you a whole new flavor profile to love if you’re already a fan of the traditional Don Carlos line. And if you’re just getting ready to enjoy it for the first time? Buckle up, you’re in for a fantastic ride.
