Unlike the company’s spicy Fuente Fuente OpusX brand, Don Carlos cigars are nuanced. The cigars are wrapped in toothy Cameroon harvested from Western Africa. The filler and binder leaves include some of the oldest tobaccos in Fuente’s extensive and massive tobacco inventory. The No. 2, which first hit the market in 1997, is a considerably fat torpedo, with a huge 55 ring gauge. As with most Don Carlos cigars, the smoke is a slow starter—it takes some time before the full flavors emerge. When they do, the reward is a pleasant mix of nut and cocoa notes with a tiny bit of spice and sweet cedar.
Arturo Fuente cigars are remarkable in construction and taste we at Cigar Boulevard are proud to offer this fantastic stick to cigar afficionados everywhere.
