Carlito Fuente has created a new cigar, Don Arturo Gran AniverXario, in a tribute to his grandfather, Arturo Fuente.
These cigars are made with the legendary wrapper leaves from Chateau de la Fuente, the birthplace of dream.
Carlito Fuente made Don Arturo Gran AniverXario cigars in 2001 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Arturo Fuente Cigar Company, which was founded by his grandfather in 1912. He planned to release Don Arturo Gran AniverXario cigars every year, starting in 2002, to celebrate the 100th anniversary. However, these cigars were never released.
Don Arturo Gran AniverXario cigars have been aging in the Fuente aging room since 2001. These 8-year-old cigars will be shipped to retail tobacconists worldwide this fall to commemorate the release of his father’s biography:
