In my opinion, the ultra-premium Don Carlos line is among Arturo Fuente’s very best. I’m certainly not alone in this belief as this top-rated cigar is always in high demand and short supply. What makes Don Carlos special is its incomparable blending of the finest aged Dominican fillers and a gorgeous African Cameroon wrapper. Beautifully banded and boxed, the cigar is very tightly packed yet its draw is airy and smooth. The cigar introduces itself with a peppery blast that quickly succumbs to medium-strength notes of sweet spice, leather, and a hint of citrus on the exhale. At the one-third mark, the smoke takes on a nutty character that remains until the final puff. In summary, words cannot do Arturo Fuente Don Carlos full justice; this a luxury smoke that you simply must experience for yourself.
