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 8)

C.A.: As the cigars get more expensive, I assume they benefit from the process that selects higher quality leaves.

Fuente: Yes.

C.A.: Is Opus X on the market? Have you started to ship? Or when are you shipping?

Fuente: We're waiting for the packaging to come in from Europe. We are on the third crop now. We like to age our tobacco a minimum of three years.

C.A.: But you expect to release Opus X this year?

Fuente: Maybe May or June.

C.A.: Of 1995?

Fuente: Yes.

C.A.: The real news is the Dominican wrapper?

Fuente: Yes.
