Three Premium After-Dinner Cigars

Cigars can be mild, they can pack a delicious punch, or fall somewhere in between. As all experienced aficionados know, we wouldn't want to light up a robust, strong-bodied smoke in the Arturo Fuente Opus X Lost City Colorado Toro Singlemorning because the palette isn't quite ready for that big array of flavors. Instead, we start the day out with mild and smooth cigars before moving on to a medium-bodied smoke in the afternoon, and going for a big and bold cigar to finish off a fine, evening meal. The following are three premium cigars that make a nice end to dinner any day of the week:

  • Padron Aniversario 1964 Exclusivo Maduro Robusto: This 94 rated masterpiece made it into the top 25 cigars of 2011. This is a fine, medium to full bodied Maduro indeed and a fantastic end to the best of evening meals. Save it for a special dinner or live the good life and enjoy one of these fantastic Maduros every night of the week.

 

  • Arturo Fuente Opus X Lost City Colorado Toro: Some of the best cigars have long names and this is definitely one of them. This legendary full-bodied Dominican puro is going to be one of the best cigars in your humidor.

 

  • The Davidoff Nicaragua Toro Habano: Davidoff cigars are known for being top-shelf premium sticks and this Nicaraguan puro is no exception. In addition to using select long filler tobaccos, it boasts a 10 year aged Habano wrapper to bring spicy flavors to the palette.

Premium Cigars that Happened Almost by Accident

Chance plays a role in the creation of every good cigar but none more so than the Opus X Lost City ARTURO FUENTE FUENTE OPUS X THE LOST CITY COLORADO TOROsmokes from Arturo Fuente. These masterpieces may have never come into existence if Andy Garcia hadn't chosen the Chateau de Fuente to film parts of "The Lost City", a movie about the effects of the Cuban revolution on a Cuban family. Whereas some cigars end up with high ratings because one or two factors beyond the control of growers ended up going in their favor, the entire growing season was changed for the plants used in the Arturo Fuente Opus brand. This happened because Fuente planted tobacco in the off season so help with filming of the movie.

Master cigar craftsman that he is, Fuente probably didn't worry too much about what those plants would produce. He certainly knew how to care for the plants and would surely create quality smokes. However, he probably never imagined that those same off-season plants would end up producing some of the best smokes he had ever dreamed of. After five years  of aging, the fermented leaves from that same Lost City tobacco have been used to create a true masterpiece. With incredibly complex flavors riding a velvet smooth smoke, these cigars are destined to go down in history as one of the best of all times.

The Amazing Story Behind Some of the Best Arturo Fuente Cigars Ever

All good cigars come with a story. For many, the tale is pretty simple in nature and involves a master cigar maker, careful tending and fermenting of the leaves, and the right combination of wrapper, binder, ARTURO FUENTE FUENTE OPUS X THE LOST CITY COLORADO TOROand filler to come up with a smoke to remember. Like the flavors they produce, the stories behind some other smokes are more complex in nature and include tales of smuggled seeds, long years of hard work, and treasured family secrets to cigar making. However, the story behind the Arturo Fuente Opus X Lost City brand tops them all.

Part of the 2004 film "The Lost City" was shot at Chateau de la Fuente in the Dominican Republic. As a favor to actor and director Andy Garcia, Mr. Fuente planted tobacco during the off season. As chance would have it, the tobacco that was essentially planted for the movie turned out to produce some of the best leaves that have ever come out Chateau de la Fuente. Incredible, high-premium cigars were created that have some of the highest degrees of complexity experienced by just about every aficionado who is fortunate enough to smoke one.

To experience the fruits of this true story, buy these excellent smokes from Thompson today!

Gift of Fuente cigars to a Close Friend

felix the cat from lakeland reviewed the ARTURO FUENTE CHATEAU SERIES CHATEAU FUENTE SUNGROWN ROTHSCHILD

bought them for a smoking friend

Bottomline: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Pros: I dont smoke My friend t, Loved them

Fuente Lovers, Your Ship Has Come In

From our point of view, there is no such thing as a bad Fuente. When comparing the relative smoking pleasures of a line of cigars that is so uniformly excellent, we are hard pressed to declare a best. The justly deserved Fuente penchant for excellence is legendary. Perhaps this is one of the reasons Fuente cigars are some of the most in-demand, most difficult to find smokes in the marketplace.

Almost as hard to find as the renowned Opus X, Fuente Chateau Series is a cigar that delivers solid performance in such large measure, so much so that many of our Fuente smokers prefer it above all other Fuente products

The Fuente for the Common Man

The Brevas Royale may be made from clippings from other Fuente cigars, but you'd never know it. This is a consistently smooth, mild cigar that is a pleasure to smoke.
