Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Overview and Review
The cigar was originally crafted to pay homage to the brands creator and family patriarch Carlos Fuente Sr. The cigar utilizes a variety of rare and aged tobaccos, but what makes this cigar truly stand out is its wrapper. The Don Cralos features a delicate and rich African Cameroon wrapper.This wrapper is truly unique due to the fact that it tends to be quite expensive, rough in appearance and temperamental during the fermentation process. Luckily for us Funte has found a way to utilize this wrapper to perfection. Wrapper: African Cameroon Binder: Dominican Filler: Dominica Tasting Notes: The cigar hits the ground running right from the initial light, featuring notes of cedar, roasted coffee and a touch of leather. As the cigar progresses the flavors ramp up approaching a solid medium body. The cigar also introduces flavors of raisin, earth and a touch of chocolate. The flavors stay very consistent through the final third, which is a great thing in this case. The cigar lacks a pepper zing like its counterpart the Opus X. If you're looking for a rich and flavorful medium cigar; that burns razor sharp this is one to try.
