For the first time in nine years, the Fuente family has added a size to its Arturo Fuente Añejo line: The Reserva No. 60. It measures 6 1/4 inches by 48 ring, sharing its parameters with the Fuente Fuente OpusX PerfecXion X.
"Because the PerfecXion X is the most sought-after size in the Fuente Fuente OpusX line, we decided to offer it in the Añejo line," said Carlos "Carlito" Fuente Jr. "It's the first new release in many, many years."
When the Añejo line first debuted in 2000, it came in five sizes. Shortly after, a sixth size, (the unorthodox No. 77 Shark) was released. The entire Añejo line ships to retailers twice a year on a very limited basis-usually around Father's Day and Christmas time. Retailer allotments are limited to only a few boxes of whichever sizes are available.
For the score and tasting note of the Arturo Fuente Añejo Reserva No. 60, see the current issue of Cigar Insider. For more details on the history of the Añejo brand, see the upcoming January 25 Cigar Insider.
