In September of 1998, Hurricane George tore through the Carribbean Sea causing widespread destruction throughout the region, including he famous Chateau de la Fuente farm in the Dominican Republic, where the wrapper leaf for the acclaimed Fuente Fuente OpusX cigar is grown and harvested.
Two years later the storm’s destruction resulted in a shortage of Fuente Fuente OpusX wrapper tobacco. Rather than halting production, Carlos Fuente Jr. ordered the use of a different wrapper, an aged Connecticut broadleaf. Once again, the Fuente family forged triumph from tragedy, and the Arturo Fuente Anejo cigar was born.
One of the world’s most rare cigars, the Anejo cigar is rolled with the very best Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente, then adds a 5-year-old Connecticut Maduro wrapper aged in Cognac barrel. This blend yields a rich, spicy, slightly sweet smoke and the unique aging process leaves a distinct finish.
Rich Maduro wrapper leaves aged in Cognac barrels make the Arturo Fuente Anejo cigar a unique smoke.
