Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Seis is another unique creation from the Fuente Family. Though this cigar has the Flor Fina name it falls under the rarer side of the line which includes the 8-5-8 Sungrown. The Casa Cuba blends a golden-hued brown Ecuadorian wrapper with the delicious Dominican binder and filler synonymous with the Fuente line. This unique blend provides flavors similar to the Opus X line in a medium bodied format. The cigar has notes of wood and spice, accompanied by a sweet leathery creaminess at the finish. This is a definite must try for Fuente fans and cigar aficionados.
Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba Doble Seis Cigar Co-Op Review
The Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba is a new line of cigars that was launched late in 2013. This is a line that many Fuente fans have anticipated for quite some time. It had originally been targeted to be a part of the company’s 100th anniversary in 2012. However, in June, 2012 it was announced that plans for the 100th anniversary were being put on hold due to “personal and professional challenges”. It was widely believed that this was tied to the challenges of a fire that destroyed two Fuente warehouses in late 2011. Finally, toward the end of 2012, the Casa Cuba made it to retailer shelves. I recently had an opportunity to smoke this cigar. Overall, I found this to be a solid cigar and one of the most unique Fuente releases to date.
There are two noteworthy items in regards to the Casa Cuba release. First, it is a cigar that was blended by Carlos Fuente, Sr. It is believed to be the first significant release that Carlos Sr. has put together in many years. Secondly, this is a cigar that is being marketed for the most part without the “A. Fuente” name and appears to be positioned as a brand that will stand on its own. It is also the first new brand in the Arturo Fuente cigar catalog in recent years.
In terms of the rollout of this release, a limited allocation was released to select retailers toward the end of 2013. There are plans for further batches to be released in the future.
Without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the Casa Cuba and see what this cigar brings to the table.
The cigars are blended at the Fuente’s Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia factory in the Dominican Republic. It features an Ecuadorian wrapper over Dominican binder and filler.
