The Fuente name is no stranger to cigar smokers both at the novice and aficionado level. For generations they have been producing the best tobacco and the best cigars in the Dominican Republic. After the hugely successful launch of their coveted OpusX cigar a new idea was born. This idea was for a cigar that uses the very best Dominican filler and binder and finishes with a 5 year old Connecticut maduro wrapper aged in a cognac barrel. This cigar became know as the Fuente Anejo (extra Viejo).
The Anejo is a full bodied Dominican cigar that because of its unique aging process leaves a very disctinct finish on the palate. Typically only available around Fathers Day and Christmas, this cigar is one of the hardest to find and exclusive cigars in the world. While this line features several different sizes, it is also home to one of the worlds most famous shapes, the No. 77 or shark as it is commonly referred to. It was the first torpedo shaped cigar ever rolled so that it goes from a rounded parejo shape to a square press. This size of the line is particularly rare.
