Anejo

If there were two words to describe Arturo Fuente's Anejo line, they would be rare and exclusive. Fuente describes the Anejo as one of the world's rarest cigars. It has a filler and binder made from Dominican tobacco grown on the Chateau de la Fuente farm. The cigar's Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper is what makes it special, however. The five-year old wrapper is aged in a Cognac barrel to give the cigar a unique finish. The Anejo is full-bodied and offers both spicy and sweet notes, among others.

Getting back to its exclusivity, the Anejo is rather pricy, and it's availability is usually limited to Father's Day and Christmas. It comes in six different sizes, with the No. 77 Shark being the line's most famous shape by far. The Shark carries the distinction of being the first Torpedo to transition from a rounded shape near its head to a square-pressed shape at its foot.

Don Carlos

The Don Carlos is named after the patriarch of the Fuente family, Don Carlos Fuente, Sr. Don Carlos cigars are considered to be some of the finest around due to the rare vintage Dominican filler tobaccos that are used to make them. The tobaccos have been aged for approximately ten years, and are topped off with African Cameroon wrappers at the Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic.

What can you expect when smoking a Don Carlos? Expect solid construction, superb burn qualities, complexity, and some added sweetness thanks to the Cameroon wrapper. The Don Carlos line is available in boxes of 25, and there are seven sizes to choose from: the No. 4, Robusto, Belicoso, No. 3, Double Robusto, No. 2, and Presidente.

Montesino

The Montesino is another popular line from Arturo Fuente. It's a milder stick that also comes with an affordable price tag, making it a great choice as an everyday cigar. The Montesino was one of the first lines to be produced at the Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic. This smooth, yet flavorful cigar offers notes of wood, nuts, and some sweetness.

The cigar's filler consists of vintage Dominican tobaccos that have been aged for five years. While the filler remains the same, there are three versions of the Montesino that feature different wrappers: the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro, Connecticut Shade Natural, and Ecuadorian Sun Grown. You can look for the Montesino in the following eight sizes: the Robusto, Diplomatico, Toro, Pyramid, No. 2, Gran Corona, No. 1, and Napoleon Grande.
