Everyone wants to experience a brand with seven different varieties and one that was created by a Cuban. In 1912, Arturo Fuente created the brand name of cigars in West Tampa, Florida. After coming to the US in 1902 to remove himself from the problems of the Spanish-American War, he left Cuba and started his company. Tobacco was imported from Cuba and used to make the cigars. In 1924, the company was struck by a fire and the plant burned to the ground. It had taken about 22 years before Arturo Fuente decided to continue producing his cigars.
After 1962, Fuente was no longer allowed to use Cuban tobacco because of the Cuba Trade Embargo, so he started buying leaves from Columbia and Puerto Rico. Because classic Havano flavors were still desired by Americans and other foreigners, they started blending tobaccos to create a similar flavor. In 1980, they opened a factory in the Dominican Republic and started growing their own tobacco.
Of course, making cigars for over 100 years and through four generations of sons and fathers will definitely show that these cigar options are definitely a great option for those that want an affordable cigar smoking experience. Other notable features include the rich, spicy, sublime and sweet-earthy scents and flavors that can be experienced through the smoking of one of these cigars.
Though every cigar offers its own specific and specialized label, the Arturo Fuente brand seems to have a little of everything. Every label is incredibly detailed and impresses upon the smoker a high-quality smoke.
Typical Arturo Fuente cigars that are the most affordable can include the Chateau Fuente, Double Chateau Fuente, Exquisito, Royal Salute, Brevas Royal, Canones, Churchill, Corona Imperial, Curly Head, Curly Head Deluxe, Petit Corona and the Rothschild. Prices per cigar can range from around $6.00 to $10.00 for one cigar and there are usually boxes of five, 20 or 25 counts where you can save a little bit of money by buying in bulk.
Anejo versions are usually marked by “Maduro” and can be Chateau, Canones, Corona Imperial and more.
