Brand Profile

 After the harvest, the fresh green tobacco is hung in curing barns where their moisture is allowed to evaporate slowly. After over 6 weeks in the curing barn, the leaves gradually turn to a beautiful, rich shade of brown. The cured tobacco leaves are then fermented - after which they are aged for years before the Fuentes consider them ready for their finest cigars. Even though the cigars are made with aged tobacco, they have to be aged again after skilled torcedors rolled them. Carlos Fuente, Father and Son, age their cigars at least for four months before they release them from their aging room.

When the cigars are first made, they are in the embryonic stage in which their ultimate taste is still being developed. As they are aged, they go through the maturation. During the maturation, the filler, binder and wrapper leaves form a perfect unity and balance, and the taste of the combined tobaccos becomes even more enhanced. The cigars, which are aged for one year in an ideal environment, will taste far better than when they were first made. The taste of the cigar reaches its pinnacle as they are aged for longer years.

When you produce wine, you do not use aged grapes. You harvest grapes for that year’s wine. However, in case of cigar making, you use the tobacco, which has already been aged for many years. The year on the bottle of vintage wine signifies the year of the grape harvest. However, you cannot put the year of the tobacco harvest on the box of the cigars. There is a good chance that the filler, binder and wrapper leaves are all harvested in different years. The year on the second bands signifies when the cigars were produced. You can track how long these Fuente Aged Selection cigars have been aged since their production from the year on the second band.
Please do not forget to age some of these vintage cigars even further, like fine wines, for added enjoyment in the future.
At the turn of the last century, the Fuente family left Cuba for America...where freedom made their dreams come true.  In 1992, Carlos Fuente, father and son, harvested the first wrapper from their seeds of hope on Chateau de la Fuente In La Republica Dominica.

In commemoration of the Tenth Anniversary of Fuente Fuente OpusX in 2002, Prometheus International, Inc. released two original Fuente documentary movies:

Fathers and Sons
Cigar Aficionado, November 2006

"The June heat is unrelenting, even under the thatched gazebo near the entrance to Chateau de la Fuente.  Peacocks caw in the shadow of the royal palm trees that seem to be everywhere - - - - .  No father-son team is as famous as that of the farm's owners, Carlos Fuente Sr. and Carlos Fuente Jr.  The two men run a business that makes some 35 million cigars by hand each year, among them the Fuente Fuente OpusX Double Corona, Cigar Aficionado's 2006 Cigar of the Year."
Interview with Carlos Fuente, Jr.
Cigar Aficionado, September 2005
"Carlos Fuente Jr. is one of the most recognized faces in the world of cigars.  The 51-year-old president of Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia. is a passionate cigarmaker who finds inspiration in breaking new ground in the cigar business.  He and his father, Carlos Sr., revived the perfecto shape with their immensely popular Hemingway series of cigars and drove the demand for full-flavored smokes with their creation of the Fuente Fuente OpusX, the first successful cigar to be made with a Cuban-seed wrapper grown under shade in the Dominican Republic.  As the 10th anniversary of the Fuente Fuente OpusX launch loomed, Fuente Jr. sat down with senior editor David Savona for wide-ranging discussion on his past, present and future in the cigar business."
The Tampa Tribune, May 7, 2000
"An intense family bond and respect for their Tampa heritage help the Fuentes create what many call the world's best cigars
"I cannot separate cigars and tobacco from myself," the younger Fuente says. "From the love of my family. From the love of my father, the love of my grandfather. When I enjoy a cigar, it's almost like that bridge."

"You could say we almost lived here," Carlos Sr. says. "We were here day and night. We don't hurry things, we just do things the way they are supposed to be done. I guess maybe other people didn't do it because they were thinking how much it would cost .... And we don't work that way."  It's tough to get a straight answer out of the Fuentes when it comes to growing tobacco and making cigars. Not because they're evasive, or unknowing. The answers are often in their hearts, in their heads, in their hands, not easily verbalized."
Interview with Carlos Fuente, Jr.
Cigar Aficionado, November/December 1998
"Carlos Fuente Jr. has become one of the most recognizable people in the cigar business.  While at the helm of Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia., he has seen the company rise to one of the preeminent positions in the industry.  Under the watchful eye of Carlos Sr., his father, Carlos Jr., with his sister, Cynthia Suarez, and brother-in-law, Wayne Suarez, have transformed their company from something they once described as a "small family business" into a powerhouse that produced nearly 40 million cigars in 1997."
Interview with Carlos Fuente, Sr.
Cigar Aficionado, Summer 1995
"Carlos Fuente Sr. has been in the tobacco business his entire life.  His Cuban-born father started a factory in Tampa in the early 1900, and over the years the family has owned cigar factories there, in Honduras and in Nicaragua.  Today, in the Dominican Republic, he and his sons operate a huge cigar-making operation.  In fact, the company, Arturo Fuente Inc., has become one the world's largest producers of premium hand-rolled cigars.  With a third factory coming on line this year in the Dominican Republic, the Fuentes had expected to produce nearly 30 million hand-rolled cigars in 1995.  In a wide-ranging interview about the state of the cigar industry today, Marvin R. Shanken, editor and publisher of Cigar Aficionado, asked Carlos Fuente Sr. about where he expects his brands to be five years from now.  Fuente also talked about the extraordinary changes that have taken place in the cigar market, and his hopes for making Arturo Fuente cigars a top brand in every market in the world." 
Seeds of Hope
