In 2006 Cigar Aficionado wrote this about Chateau Fuente:
“No father-son team is as famous as that of the farm's owners, Carlos Fuente Sr. and Carlos Fuente Jr.”
Together, father and son Carlos Fuente, Sr. and Carlos Fuente, Jr. supervised operations of Arturo Fuente. The family owned company produces more than 30 million cigars per year. Sadly, Carlos Fuente, Sr. passed away on August 5, 2016 in Tampa. He was 81.
When Arturo Fuente introduced the Gran Reserva series the cigar world was taken by storm. The creative geniuses at Arturo Fuente have mastered the art of combining the finest Dominican tobaccos and unique wrappers then aged them in special Spanish cedar vaults.
Gran Reserva Flor Fina 858 Maduro is mild but is bursting with flavors of cocoa, cedar and notes of dry red wine. Very smooth and consistent, with an even burn, there is an enough complexity to keep the smoker captivated.
Thinking of the Gran Reserva Flor Fina 858 Maduro’s notes of cedar and wine I decided to pair this with Decadencia Chocolate Port. The wine is rich with mocha and sweet cherry flavors. The port and cigar combination is harmonious and well balanced. When looking to buy cigars online to pair with your favorite libation, always go to elcigarshop.com!
