#01 in 2017: Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark

Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark - Mikes cigarsPresenting the Cigar No.1 in 2017 as per Cigar Aficionado: Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Eye of the Shark.

Introduced at the 2015 IPCPR and released in October of the same year, this Cigar is a special gift to celebrate the 80th birthday of Don Carlos Fuente Sr, who sadly died in 2016. The Cigar box shows elegant traits with the year 2015 written in Latin (MMXV) and the celebration note: “The Man’s 80th”.

The blend by itself is magical, based on the original Don Carlos cigar that was released in 1976. It is composed of a Cameroon wrapper with both binders and filler from the Dominican Republic.

As Cigar Aficionado mentioned, Carlos Fuente Jr. is known for “blending instinctively rather than by strict formula”. It is a unique Demi-pressed Cigar and half rounded belicoso that shows hints of spices and citrus. The 10 years aged Long filler tobaccos adds the charm to the puff in a medium-bodied assorted cigar.
