The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Reserve No. 2 is a cigar made in the Dominican Republic. Specifically, the Don Carlos line is a tribute to Carlos Fuente Sr., father of Carlos Fuente Jr., who has now taken over the reins of the company. Don Carlos’ favorite band leaf was the Cameroon, grown in Africa. Carlito told us that his father used to say that a Cameroon leaf goes well to almost any cigar, and it is one of the most versatile tobacco leaves. The size of this pyramid is slightly larger than what is usually seen on the market, due to the more generous ring gauge (55 compared to the classic 52).
Cigars are dressed up in a silky colorado shade wrapper. Construction is excellent.
