Look, this is not an everyday cigar, not by any stretch. But when you experience those life-altering moments that leave you grasping for something absolutely spectacular to commemorate the occasion, this is the ultra-premium handmade that you should be reaching for. Hands down.
Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Don Carlos, and true Fuente fans will recognize that this is not an event to be taken lightly. It features a well-aged sun grown Habano wrapper, which just happens to be the same type used for the ever-popular Opus X. Beneath the hood, a choice blend of 2-year-aged choice Dominican long-fillers rounds out this mix. The creamy, unique flavor profile is perfectly complemented by the excellent construction and even draw. And talk about limited edition....these beauties are released in small quantities, which makes them extremely hard to find. So go ahead, and fitfully honor your special occasion with a truly superior cigar experience.
“If you have the money, then you have an excuse to buy this cigar (even if a single is all you can manage). Construction is impeccable, not a soft spot to be found on the stick. The burn was razor-sharp and the taste is complex beyond words. The first third of the stick presents notes of cinnamon and dark roasted coffee with a bit of white pepper tingle on the retrohale. As it heats up into the second third think of warm cinnamon bread baking in the oven...that and a creaminess that persists through the rest of the cigar. The final third brings more earthiness and leather while keeping the creaminess that was present in the second third. I know its expensive, but this cigar is an investment in and hour and a half of pure enjoyment. 10/10”

“Definitely one of the best. Expensive, yes, but delicious. FFOX is my favorite cigar. If this one was cheaper I may consider this my favorite. Very nice for those important events in life.”
