There’s good news and bad news for Fuente fans. First, the bad news: shipments for the Arturo Fuente Rare Pinks, which were expected this month, have been delayed, and no clear delivery date has been established. According to Fuente, the delay was caused by logistical complications related to the pandemic.

The good news? The Arturo Fuente Cigar Co. has decided to send Casa Fuente cigars instead. These are the smokes that, until now, have only been available at the Casa Fuente lounge in Las Vegas.

Not to be confused with Fuente’s Casa Cuba, the Casa Fuente house cigars are made with a Cameroon wrapper around Dominican tobacco and have never been officially sold outside the lounge (though they have been sold on the secondary market and occasionally passed out at Fuente events). The line comes in 10 sizes—including three cigars in a “natural” Ecuadoran wrapper—though how these sizes will be allocated to Fuente retailers isn’t clear. What is clear is that these cigars are shipping today and should be reaching cigar shops by Friday.

All Casa Fuente cigars come in 25-count boxes.
