The pleasure of a smoke and the comfort, solace, and camaraderie found in a great cigar have been a source of enjoyment for centuries. This book tells the tale of a true legacy: Arturo Fuente and his family. From Fuente’s earliest years to the creation of the world-renowned Fuente Fuente OpusX, the first commercially viable all-Dominican-grown and -rolled puro ever—and its remarkable resultant contribution to the evolution of modern cigars.
Richly illustrated with exclusive photography by Ian Spanier, Arturo Fuente: Since 1912 is penned by author and cigar doyen Aaron Sigmond. It celebrates the accomplishments of the past three generations of the Fuente family, their cigars, and how their surname, and the OpusX marque, have become synonymous with epicurean global luxury. With contributions from actor-director Andy García and Ciro Cascella, the executive president of Tabacalera A. Fuente, this volume is a tribute to the cigar as a timeless passion, and to the Fuente family.
This oversized hand-bound book, finished with authentic hand-tipped cigar bands and presented in a handcrafted clamshell box, is a must-have for any cigar connoisseur— especially so for Arturo Fuente devotees.
