Arturo Fuente Don Carlos

The Don Carlos line from Arturo Fuente is among their very best.

The Fuente name, combined with top Cameroon wrappers and fine Dominican tobaccos make this well-aged cigar a highly sought after commodity.

Arturo Fuente Don Carlos received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#4 overall) and a well-deserved 94-rating noting: "Its wrapper-to-filler ratios resulted in a perfect combination of the Cameroon cover leaf’s sweet-and-sour properties along with the Dominican binder and filler, which gave the cigar a zesty, nutty quality full of shaved almonds and candied orange peel."

Not worth the price
Only half of the box was any good. Only a few lived up to expectation.

Special smoke
I received the #2 Belicoso as a gift on Father's Day. What gift! Quality is as expected. Strong robust flavor yet mild in strength. I save these for weekends with a fine whiskey

This is great cigar
couple weeks back and I got to tell you this is probably one of the best cigars I've ever smoked. the cigar had a great taste and a great flavor throughout the entire cigar. I recommend you keep a couple of these in the humidor if you are one to enjoy a good cigar now and then.

stale cigars
Disappointed with the cigars, they were stale and the wrapper was peeling off. I bought these before and like them but these must have been thrown in the back of the warehouse

Some literally exploded like something out of a Marx Bros. comedy because the wrappers were so brittle.
One of my favorites for many years. last 5 boxes all had problems with the wrappers cracking. Tried a month in my humidor; even a plastic bag with apples and 3 out of 4 cracked. Usually I got about half a cigar before it cracked. Some literally exploded like something out of a Marx Bros. comedy. Sad.

Disappointed
I bought a 5 pack back in October and had high hopes for the cigar with all of the reviews and comments. First off, I am an AF fan, and truly enjoy many of their blends. Unfortunately this was not one of them. I've just finished my fourth one of the pack, and am still disappointed. When I received the pack, I found that 3 out of the 5 sticks had caps that were unraveling, which to be honest, I didn't think was too much of a big deal as I just had to cut it off (which I could do as I usually do a diagonal cut on torpedoes). However, the bigger issue was that they were wrapped so tight, that all 4 so far I've had to give up on the diagonal cut and cut straight, almost to the band in order to get a decent amount of smoke. The construction is really sub-par. Perhaps due to the inadequate amount of smoke, or perhaps that's actually the flavor profile of the cigar, but they are not to my taste. I quite enjoy a variety of strengths and flavors, but this cigar didn't hit any notes that I enjoy. As much of an AF fan as I am, I believe there are better sticks out there that deserved a spot on the CA Top 25 over this one.

My All time Favorite Cigar
IMHO the perfect cigar - great earthy flavor with a hint of sweetness. Beautifully made, with a smooth consistent draw every time I light one up. A little pricey for an "every time I want a cigar" smoke, but I always keep at least a half a dozen in the humidor at all times.

Lon time favorite
I love the Don Carlo line of smokes from Arturo Fuente'. I was not disappointed in the product except that a couple were received too dry to be rehabilitated and that's always frustrating. AF makes a fine smoke, I purchase curley heads also.

5 pack option
Like the 5 pack option you offer. Occasionally run into a pack that has dried out a bit and breaks apart.

Nice, quick smoke
This is a mild smoke, burns nicely, nothing fancy but good in a pinch.
Customer Testimonials
I have smoked nearly every premium one can readily obtain and the Don Carlos #2 is the best cigar these lips have ever touched in the $10 range. Dare I say it competes hand and hand with a Padron 1964 even at a lower price point? Yes I do! In fact, this cigar was better than any Opus X I have ever had from Arturo Fuente. Well done Mr. Fuente, well done.
Very nice cigar. Medium strength. Any time of the day cigar.
Extremely easy to light. Excellent construction, draw and burn. Easy draw and heavy smoke output. Medium weight creamy smoke on the palate. Mild to medium strength and medium to full flavors. Ever changing flavors of sweet dark chocolate, leather, cherry and roasted nuts. Sweet tobacco taste on the lips. Medium length dry finish after each draw with hints of sweet cedar and oak. Slight increase in strength at the half way point.
What can be said further about this cigar. One of lifes little pleasures. consistant burn, smoke, flavor.. treated myself for the Holidays.. Now a new tradition. Buy a Christmas tree, and order a box of Fuente Don Carlos Belicoso's
If I was stranded on a desert island and had only one cigar this would be it.
The best there is (IMHO).
DC #2 Torpedo is the finest smoke around....at $11 a pop however, I only savior them on rare occasions, proving once again, you get what you pay for...simply the best!
I started smoking cigars two years ago on a deployment in Iraq. Ever since I've tried as many different cigars as possible to see what I like best. I came across the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos a couple of months ago and let them settle in my humidor. Finally fired one up two weeks ago and it is the best cigar hands down I've ever smoked! This is now my all-time favorite and have had a few more since with the same quality experience. Glad CI has them at the most reasonable prices out there, as I've ordered many more.
Bought a box of the #3 in an auction and got a great deal on them. I'd like to try the larger ring guage vitolas as I felt I was getting more Cameroon wrapper than filler leaf flavor. I almost felt like I was smoking something from Drew Estate (not that there's necessarily anything wrong with flavored cigars) as the finish was quite sweet. I smoked 3 sticks, and ended up selling the rest to a very grateful friend of mine.
The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos #2 Bellicose is like a fine woman: smooth and delicate on the outside, mild and sweet to the taste, a beautiful bouquet, perfectly constructed which gets better and wetter and has a bold finish! - Julius Stuckey, Alabama
The Don Carlos (Arturo Fuente Don Carlos)was one of the best tasting and robust cigars I have ever smoked. It is comparable to the Cohiba Vigoroso and the CAO Italia in robustness. If you like a good strong flavor then it's worth the price.
