One of the rarest cigar blends on the planet with sporadic and limited releases throughout the year, I keep Arturo Fuente Anejo cigars around only for the most special of occasions. These top-shelf cigars were initially released at the turn of the millennium in 2000 and have since been one of Arturo Fuente’s most sought-after offerings. In the late 1990s, hurricane George ravaged the Dominican Republic and damaged the sun-grown wrappers growing at Chateau de la Fuente for the famous Fuente Fuente Opus X which resulted in a shortage. Carlito Fuente decided to substitute the sun-grown wrapper for an extensively aged Connecticut Broadleaf, and the Arturo Fuente Anejo was born. Today, the Arturo Fuente Anejo is available in several sizes, including the unique No. 77 which goes from square-pressed at the foot to rounded at the cap. The blend features a top-quality Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper that was aged in cognac barrels and surrounds a choice selection of Dominican long filler and binder tobaccos. When I first tried an Arturo Fuente Anejo, I was blown away by the rich and complex full-bodied flavors of warm spices, chocolate, leather, cedar, roasted nuts, and creamy sweetness.
