Aged in cognac barrels, this is one of the rarest cigars on the planet.
The Fuente name is no stranger to cigar enthusiasts both at the novice and aficionado levels. With a '94' rating from Cigar Aficionado, it's no wonder for generations they have been producing the best tobacco and the best cigars in the Dominican Republic. After the hugely successful launch of their coveted Opus X cigar, a new idea was born. This idea was for a cigar that uses the very best Dominican filler and binder, but adds a 5-year-old Connecticut maduro wrapper aged in a cognac barrel. The cigar became known as Fuente Anejo (extra Viejo).
Fuente Anejo is a full-bodied Dominican cigar with an unique aging process that leaves a very distinct finish on the palate. Typically, only available around Father's Day and Christmas, this cigar is one of the hardest to find and exclusive cigars in the world. While this line features several different sizes, it is also home to one of the world’s most famous shapes, the No. 77 or shark as it is commonly referred to. It was the first torpedo-shaped cigar ever rolled, so it progresses from a rounded parejo shape to a square press. This size is particularly rare.
