Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Reserva Superior

Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Reserva Superior

Initially, this series was called "Gran Reserva" and was later renamed Arturo Fuente Don Carlos after the family patriarch, Carlos Fuente (that's why the Robusto is named after him as well), as new formats were added.

This series also features a highly aromatic blend of Dominican tobaccos in the filler and binder, topped with an African Cameroon wrapper. Most of the wrappers for this series come from the 1984 harvest, making them likely the oldest wrappers used for a continuously produced cigar series. These wrappers give the cigars a spiciness and richness of flavors not commonly found in Dominican Republic cigars. All cigars in this series are perfectly balanced and enchant with a fresh aroma of eucalyptus and coffee. The ultimate choice for the discerning smoker.

All Fuentes are rather rich and full-bodied cigars, compared to Dominican standards, partly because they use at least four different types of tobacco in the filler. This creates an incredible spectrum of flavors.

The Fuentes benefit from their personal and close connections to the Meerapfel family, who are the main suppliers of this special wrapper (Cameroon) worldwide. These leaves are rare because the political situation in the best growing region, the Central African Republic, is unstable, making long-term planning and organized tobacco cultivation almost impossible.

Since 1912, the Fuentes have been renowned worldwide for their outstanding quality and pioneering spirit in tobacco cultivation and processing. Arturo Fuente is the most popular brand in the American market. The Hemingway series, especially the Opus X, which is rarely available in Germany, has earned this brand a legendary reputation.
