While prices for most of the Arturo Fuente Cigar Co. portfolio are staying the same starting 2021, the company announced that there’s been a slight price increase on less than one percent of the company’s product line. According to an official release, the minor adjustment works out to an average increase of three percent, shouldered by a few select sizes.
“The small number of select cigars that are receiving a small price adjustment are only those in the Chateau Fuente line, as well as short fillers such as Curly Heads and Brevas Royale,” Liana Fuente told Cigar Aficionado. The latter two cigars are among the lowest priced of the Fuente line, and are cigars seldom, if ever, rated by Cigar Aficionado.
The company assures that it will keep cigar prices the same for more than 99 percent of its entire production.
“We are committed to selling the highest-quality cigars at the fairest prices, and we work hard to keep our prices at or below market,” said company patriarch Carlos Fuente Jr. in the release.
Fuente is headquartered in Tampa, Florida, and produces its cigars in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia., including Arturo Fuente Don Carlos, Hemingway Series and the Fuente Fuente OpusX Double Robusto, Cigar Aficionado’s No. 2 cigar of 2020.
