The Casa Cuba line was the last blend created by Carlos Fuente Sr. before his death, and which sought to recall the time when the Fuente family made their cigars on the porch of their house in Tampa with Cuban tobacco.
The Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba is often considered the little brother of the Opus X cigar. The Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and the Dominican binder and filler combination provide an exceptionally balanced smoke that produces a traditional feel like a true Cuban cigar would produce. This is not an Opus X Fuente, and you won’t get the boldness and aromas that you get from it; instead, you will find a more controlled profile, around smoke that provides similar earthy flavors with controlled levels of spice and sweetness.
Among its main characteristics, we have a pleasant softness to the touch, despite presenting certain veins and an amount of oil that is found throughout the cigar. As for the aroma, notes of dark chocolate, cedar and some citrus flavors predominate at first, and then cedar, hay, pepper and slightly floral and raisin notes take prominence.
