“We are Cuban-Americans born and raised in Tampa. In Tampa, there are two areas that hold deep meaning for both of our families and the community we are members of: Ybor City and West Tampa. These areas have a historical connection to Cuba, the immigrant experience, the cigar industry and the American Dream.” Liana Fuente – Great-Granddaughter of Arturo Fuente
Arturo Fuente is the embodiment of what all cigar producers should strive for. That is excellence. The Gran Reserva Natural cigar is the finest example from Tabacalera Fuente in the Dominican Republic. The handmade Gran Reserva consists of a blend of Dominican tobaccos from the family’s private reserve that are grown and specially aged on Chateau de la Fuente. The blend of the sultry Dominican filler and binder tobaccos are encased in a silky African Cameroon wrapper leaf.
The Gran Reserva Natural Petit Corona ( 5 x 38) is a mild to medium bodied cigar. Wearing Fuente’s classic red, green and gold band, the caramel-brown African Cameroon wrapper is rustic yet superbly constructed. The creation results in an excellent draw and steady and long burn. The flavor is smooth and consistent throughout. The Gran Reserva Natural begins earthy then proceeds with tasting notes that include brown sugar sweetness, white pepper and spice.
The affordable Petit Corona is the ideal stick to smoke on your lunch break or when you are limited on time.
