Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Belicoso
5 3/8 x 52 - Natural - Single
Can't get your hands on a Fuente Fuente Opus X? The Don Carlos cigars, which preceded them, are awesome and often preferred by aficionados. Expertly handmade with long aged Dominican fillers and Cameroon wrappers for a rich, spicy and velvety-smooth smoke! Get this 5 pack and compare for yourself.
This is by all means a premium cigar, however I was expecting JUST a little bit more. My love for Fuente blends and Cameroon wrappers may have lifted my expectations past unreasonable, however I don't think that was the case in this instance. I enjoyed it, but I think I payed a too much for the Fuente name. If you are a fan of these, I recommend also trying the La Aurora Preferidos line - specifically the #1. They also come with a hefty price tag, but you'll notice the difference in quality.
I smoke many, many different brands of cigars but the Don Carlos line for the money is my absolute favorite.
I can not say one thing bad about this cigar. It is flavorable, burns perfect, and is good from the begining to the end! bought a few extra for a rainy day. hope it rains soon!
The Don Carlos Belicoso compares favorably with my favorite smoke, the Cuban Montecristo #2. The Don Carlos benefits more from humidor aging than any cigar I have ever tried. The cigar goes from just mediocre to superb with four to six weeks proper aging. It's not as good as the Montecristo, but close.
