The Arturo Fuente Hemingway Series cigars are among the most exclusive premium handmade cigars available today. To recreate this "perfecto" shaped line of cigars, Carlos Fuente Sr. and his father, Don Carlos, returned to their roots in Ybor City, Florida, . looking for molds like those that had been used in the early decades of the 20th century to make the popular "Arturo Fuente Fancy Tales" cigars. The Hemingway series was originally introduced in the early 1980's and features an oily, toothy African grown Cameroon or a more rare US Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper and a phenomenal....
As the old saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” Well, in 1998 the clouds of Hurricane Georges roared over the Dominican Republic laying waste to millions of dollars of outstanding tobacco crops. No one was spared by this storm, including the famed Chateau de la Fuente. The Fuente family watched as their crop, including the famed Fuente Fuente Opus X wrappers, was decimated. However, the Fuente family is accustomed to adversity. Over the course of their company history they have rebuilt several times in several countries after warehouse fires destroyed their properties. Not one to be deterred, Carlos Fuente Jr. came up with an idea that turned out to be one of the Fuentes’ master strokes. Facing a lack of the prized wrappers for their Fuente Fuente Opus X line, Carlos Fuente Jr. had a brainstorm. He decided to use US Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrappers over the existing Opus X blend. But in keeping with the Fuente style, these are not your ordinary maduro wrappers. The wrappers for the Fuente Añejo series are aged for one year in oak Cognac barrels! These wrappers, when combined with what are some of the finest filler tobacco grown today, create a cigar that is truly unlike any other in the world.
First released in 2000, the Fuente Añejo cigars are among the rarest cigars being released only a few times each year. Few cigars command as much respect and awe as the Añejo series and when they do become available it is a veritable feeding frenzy as cigar aficionados and collectors worldwide vie for these incredible cigars. Every holiday season, the Fuentes release a new batch of Añejo cigars. Released in six sized, including the infamous “No. 77 Shark,” these cigars will sell out in a hurry. So, for all you Fuente fans, move quickly! The Fuente Añejo cigars do not stay stock long. And, with Mike's great pricing, these Añejo's are an outstanding deal! The very rare Añejos have a blend of Opus X, Don Carlos, and Hemingway filler, with Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrappers that are cured in cognac barrels for 6-8 months after they've been aged. The term Añejo is Spanish means refined with aging and the Añejo is a great testimony for the process.
