According to a report by Cigar Aficionado; Arturo Fuente will make the Casa Fuente brand available on a limited basis nationwide. Casa Fuente is an exclusive house cigar made by Arturo Fuente Cigar Company for the Casa Fuente retail store located in Las Vegas. It marks the first time Casa Fuente has been made available nationwide.
The report says the Casa Fuente cigars are being shipped to retailers in place of the Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Series which has been delayed due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on logistics.
The Casa Fuente cigar line is said to be based on the Fuente Fuente OpusX line. It features a Cameroon wrapper over Dominican binder and fillers. It is available in seven sizes: Robusto (5 1/4 x 50), Corona Gorda Belicoso Fino (5 5/8 x 52), Double Robusto (5 3/4 x 52), Pyramid No. 2 (6 1/2 x 52), Churchill (7 x 47), and Double Corona (7 5/8 x 49). In addition, three sizes of the Casa Fuente 800 series will be made available. This features a Sun Grown Ecuadorian Havana seed wrapper over Dominican tobaccos from the Fuente farm. The sizes being released nationwide are: 806 (5 1/4 x 52), 807 (5 3/4 x 52), and 808 (6 x 54).
Arturo Fuente expects the cigars to begin to arrive at retailers by the end of this week.
