The Casa Cuba from Arturo Fuente – Bringing back tradition in a modern world.
Recently receiving an superb 91-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine in the April 2016 issue!
The Casa Cuba is a household name believe it or not. First registered in 1956 by the Casa Cuba Cigar factory of Tampa, Fl., they were eventually bought out by the Arturo Fuente Cigar Company in the late 1970’s, but has remained relatively low key in the cigar world until their small release earlier in 2013. Now the Fuente family is making a push with the Casa Cuba and has been the talk of the town ever since the 2013 IPCPR Tradeshow.
The Casa Cuba utilizes an Ecuadorian wrapper over Dominican fillers, blended skillfully by family patriarch Carlos Fuentes Sr. Construction of the Casa Cuba is absolutely impeccable and “Blended to the taste of Mr. Fuentes himself” from head to foot. Smooth to the touch and a subtle oily sheen, the Casa Cuba is a great looking cigar from the outside. The inner workings are packed tightly but not too tight as to give off a rough draw. This cigar is smooth with subtle hints of spice from the moment you light up to the moment you reach the final nub. We currently carry the 6 x 52’s ‘Doble Seis’, 5.5 x 44 Doble Tres, 4.5 x 54 Doble Cuatro, and 5 x 50 Doble Cinco, in singles and packs of three. This is an "old fashioned" cigar that is blended in Fuente’s Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia factory in the Dominican Republic. Don’t be left out of the smoking dens inner circle without a Casa Cuba cigar. Sure to make a great addition to your humidors repertoire.
