Famous Smoke Shop has announced a new exclusive cigar, the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Personal Reserve 80th Anniversary Edition. This pays tribute to two 80 year milestones, both the birthday of Don Carlos Fuente Sr. and 80 years of business at Famous Smoke Shop.
The Don Carlos Personal Reserve Robusto came out in 2015 for what would have been Don Carlos Fuente Sr.’s 80th birthday. The blend uses Dominican tobaccos grown on Fuente’s estate farms, topped with an African Cameroon wrapper. This version for Famous is a slightly different version of the blend. “Don Carlos was my grandfather’s blend,” said Liana Fuente. “He loved it very much. Until the day he died, he always had two sticks in his pocket – one to give to a guest, and one for him to smoke.”
Other cigars made celebrating Famous Smoke’s 80th anniversary include entries from: Ernesto Perez-Carrillo, A.J. Fernandez, Dunbarton Tobacco & Trust, and Romeo y Julieta.
“We are pleased that we were able to collaborate with Carlito Fuente in making this special selection to honor our establishment,” said Famous Smoke Shop CEO, Arthur Zaretsky. “The Fuentes have been doing business with our family since 1970. We go back a long way and are honored that Carlito and his family would do something like this to honor our 80 years in business.”
