An Interview with Carlos Fuente Sr.

A discussion with the head of Arturo Fuente Inc., one of the world's largest producers of premium hand-rolled cigars.
Marvin R. Shanken
From the Print Edition:
Jack Nicholson, Summer 95

(continued from page 9)

C.A.: The binder and the filler?

Fuente: Dominican.

C.A.: Is there anything unusual or unique about the blend? As, let's say, compared to the Hemingway or the Don Carlos?

Fuente: It's a totally different animal.

C.A.: What's the price range of the Opus X going to be?

Fuente: Well, I don't think we have sat down and figured it out exactly, but it's going to be expensive. I would assume over seven bucks.

C.A.: But you said that you have some other cigars that go as high as $9?

Fuente: The Hemingways.

C.A.: Wouldn't the Opus X likely be priced above that?

Fuente: Yeah, but we're going to have different sizes. I think it will probably be over $10 for the big cigars.
