Inspired by the elegant Chateau de la Fuente, home of the world famous Arturo Fuente tobacco plantation, the Double Chateau Fuente is a unique creation of the family’s private stock of specially aged tobaccos. The Chateau Fuente line is hand made the same way Don Arturo made it 100 years ago.
The Natural Connecticut Shade wrapper and aged tobaccos are encased in a thin cedar sleeve packaging, providing a natural humidor effect, to enhance the cigar ensuring for a great hour of a smoke. The Double Chateau Fuente is a medium bodied wonder. As with all of Fuente’s premium cigars, the special blend emits a creamy smooth smoke throughout the hour. Flavors of cedar and spice are gentle on the palate. This cigar is a heavenly experience.
The Double Chateau Fuente is a perfect companion on the golf course or at the billiard parlor. A lighter bodied bourbon makes for an excellent pairing with the Double Chateau Fuente. The light spice and flavors of wood from the cigar compliment the bourbon with notes of citrus and vanilla. A bourbon such as Evan Williams Single Barrel does a good job of bringing out the flavors of the Double Chateau. So, pick up a box online and then test them out with a new cocktail....let's say a variation of the Sidecar! Traditionally made with brandy, here is a tasty version of a Sidecar made with bourbon:
1 part Evan Williams Single Barrel Bourbon
1/2 part Cointreau
1/2 part lemon juice
Take lemon and moisten rim of highball glass. Sprinkle superfine sugar on rim of glass. Combine Evan Williams Bourbon, Triple Sec and lemon juice. Shake ingredients together with cracked ice. Strain into prepared highball glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. Fabulous!
