This Geek Critique has been generously sponsored by Vroomp (Brad).

The Cigar: Arturo Fuente Don Carlos No. 2

The Specs:
Wrapper: Cameroon
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
Country of Origin: Dominican Republic
Strength: Medium
Size: 6” x 55

Shipping: US and Canada addresses only

Due Date: February 25, 2021

The Hype:
Carlos Fuente Jr. blended the Don Carlos cigar line to honor his father, Fuente patriarch Carlos Fuente Sr., for whom the cigar is named. The cigar has long been prized for its flavor and consistency. Unlike the company's spicy Fuente Fuente OpusX brand, Don Carlos cigars are nuanced. The cigars are wrapped in toothy Cameroon harvested from Western Africa. The filler and binder leaves include some of the oldest tobaccos in Fuente's extensive and massive tobacco inventory. The No. 2, which first hit the market in 1997, is a considerably fat pyramid, with a portly 55 ring gauge. As with most Don Carlos cigars, the smoke is a slow starter.

The Reviewers:
Initially, volunteers should be Veteran status or higher and not doing the February review. This review will be due by February 25, so please, only volunteer if you are prepared to turn it in on time. If you are interested, please indicate so in the forum below and Brad will make the final selection.

Note: A reviewer who posts their review late will receive neutral feedback. A reviewer who does not post at all will receive negative feedback. There are always exceptions to the rule and a reasonable excuse for tardiness or a no show will be respected and thus not counted against the reviewer. Our sponsoring members and our administrators make the choice of who is to participate in any particular Geek Critique and can be better informed of their choices with this initiative in place.

Thanks again to Brad for providing the cigar. And thank you to the reviewers.
