Arturo Fuente’s long-awaited Don Carlos Eye of the Bull had a premiere launch in Brussels, Belgium. The launch event was held at Cercle Roya Gaulous, described as a prestigious private gentleman’s club. The Eye of the Bull is being launched to U.S. retailers next month at the 2023 Premium Cigar Association Trade Show. Joshua Meerapfel, Director of Arturo Fuente International, was present at the launch event.


“This is a perfect addition to the Don Carlos line”, explains Joshua. “A true homage to our late father Richard and his mentor Don Carlos Fuente; they would have been proud of this flavor bomb!”

The Eye of the Bull was a personal project of Ciro Cascella, Executive President of Tabacalera A. Fuente. The cigar was a project worked on for several years. It features a Meerapfel-grown African Cameroon wrapper over Dominican binder and filler in a 3 1/2 x 55 sized format.

Arturo Fuente has said the Eye of the Bull will only be available for those U.S. retailers that attend the 2023 PCA Trade Show. It will also be available to Arturo Fuente International (Eastern Hemisphere) retailers.
