Arturo Fuente Cigar Company celebrates Destino Al Siglio – 100 Years of cigars and success. In 2012, the Arturo Fuente Company celebrated 100 years of hard work, dedication, and family tradition. When A. Fuente & Company was established in 1912, Arturo Fuente would have never dreamed his passion for cigars would become a global benchmark for the cigar industry. He started his company with humble beginnings, rolling and blending cigars in the back of his house with his wife Cristina and two sons, Carlos and Arturo Oscar. Four Generations later, the company is still family-owned and operated in the Dominican Republic.
From the very beginning, the focus of making a Fuente cigar was quality: tobacco, quality craftsmanship, and taking the time necessary to make a truly remarkable cigar. As Carlos Fuente, Sr. says, “They don’t hurry things, they just do things the way they are supposed to be done.”
100 years later, a burning passion for cigars continues to inspire the Fuente family. As they pass down to their children the culture and traditions of Arturo Fuente, the Fuente family will continue to make the world’s finest cigars for generations to come.
The Rosado Sun Grown has a silky smooth, evenly colored wrapper with an amazing earthiness at the foot. Smooth and seamless with a sweet hay-like notes.
1st quarter: Once lit there was a very smooth draw that produced a lot of creamy smoke. Firm to the touch with slight, sweet hay-like notes on the palate, with almost no resistance. There’s a touch of some bitter tones, but that went away in the first quarter. 2nd quarter: There’s some sweet and earthy aromas developing, with a great creamy texture on the palate. The draw got even better, opening up to let more thick smoke through. Increasing creamy texture and noticeable light spices. 3rd quarter: Big clouds of flavorful smoke continued delivering greater flavor. Some spice did develop, but still very light and mellow. Sweet undertones developed and the body intensified to full characters. 4th quarter: Rich, light, earthy tones stayed consistent, with a nice, slow, and even burn that produced a dense long gray ash. Very pleasurable aroma and intriguing flavor. Lingering spices on the palate. Some bitterness at the end.
A medium-full in flavor overall with a touch of complexity. Spices developed and lingered on the palate with very good sweet notes in the aroma. Sweet and creaminess notes stayed consistent. A very well made flavorful cigar with a great long finish.
