Review Notes: This is a great cigar. Excellent roll ... delicious to the nub. Toasty, nutty, smooth as a newborn's bottom. BUT ... it is the typical Fuente. Take a very nice Cameroon wrapped cigar, that most companies would sell for $3 or $5, maybe try to get $5.50 for them tops ... put a Fuente wrapper on it, put it in a Fuente box, and sell them for $10 - $12. I will say this, at a comparable price, it beats the Cohiba Red Dot hands down. However, I would much rather plunk down $8 for an Ashton Aged Maduro (which I just reviewed.) Don Carlos is basically a special occasion smoke, or a "rich man's cigar," if you will. If you bring in 75 to 100 grand salary a year, then by all means, buy a box. For most of us "po folk," however, may I suggest a nice Cameroon wrapped Dominican JR Alternative. How does that song go from "Fiddler On The Roof?" ... oh yeah ... "If I were a rich man ..."
