Connoisseur's Corner

Arturo Fuente Destino Al Siglo Siglo De Amistad
This celebratory smoke was created for Arturo Fuente’s landmark 100th anniversary in 2012, and released the following year. It’s a beautiful cigar, with a slightly reddish hue to the wrapper. Bold from the first puff, it begins with notes of almond, and orange marmalade. The smoke gets drier and stronger as it goes, taking on notes of walnut and a touch of graham cracker. Quite delicious.
