The Don Carlos Edicion de Anniversario was made to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of Don Carlos. Starting with an aged sun grown Habano wrapper, the same rare wrapper used on Opus X, Don Carlos Edicion de Anniversario is blended with the choicest Dominican fillers and aged for at least two years before making their way to the public. Because of the extremely limited production each year, these cigars are very hard to find and are most often available in limited edition boxes and humidors.
In 2006, Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was created by Carlito Fuente Jr. as a tribute to his father, Carlos Fuente Sr., in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos cigars blended by his father.
From a Review by Cigar Aficionado: “The Fuente family has been making Arturo Fuente Don Carlos cigars since 1976, longer (by four years) than they have been making cigars in the Dominican Republic. The blend is the creation of Carlos Fuente Sr., patriarch of the family. In 2006, his son, Carlos Fuente Jr., made the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario to celebrate the 30 years of Don Carlos cigars. He swapped out the Cameroon wrapper for the Dominican shade-grown leaf he uses on Fuente Fuente OpusX. He also boosted the cigar’s power considerably. The result is a tremendously intense and complex blend, especially in the Double Robusto size. The cigars are wonderful, but especially hard to find due to their extremely limited production – – -.”
