Famous Smoke Shop, has announced the arrival of the Fuente Don Carlos Personal Reserve, “The Man’s 80th” selection in a special, limited release box of 10 Robusto made exclusively for Famous Smoke Shop’s 80th Anniversary.
This release also represents another important 80-year milestone. Released in 2015, the Don Carlos Personal Reserve Robusto was made in honor of the late Don Carlos Fuente Sr.’s 80th birthday.
The cigar features select Dominican tobaccos grown on Fuente’s estate farms, with a African Cameroon wrapper. It’s a slightly modified version of Don Carlos Sr.’s blend made for his own private use, yet faithfully reflects “The Man’s” personal flavor profile.
“Don Carlos was my grandfather’s blend,” said Liana Fuente. “He loved it very much. Until the day he died, he always had two sticks in his pocket – one to give to a guest, and one for him to smoke.”
The Fuente Don Carlos Personal Reserve Famous 80th Anniversary Edition also represents the last chapter in the company’s 80th Anniversary Cigar Series, which has also included special editions from Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, A.J. Fernandez, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, and Romeo y Julieta.
“We are pleased that we were able to collaborate with Carlito Fuente in making this special selection to honor our establishment,” said Famous Smoke Shop CEO, Arthur Zaretsky. “The Fuentes have been doing business with our family since 1970. We go back a long way and are honored that Carlito and his family would do something like this to honor our 80 years in business.”
