Here is a cigar that we have been waiting for a long time. One of the jewels of the cigar industry, a new version of the legendary Fuente Fuente Opus X with the “Angel’s Share” – “the share of the angels”. This expression is used in the wine and alcohol industry. Indeed, these noble products undergo in the process of their development a “maturing” in barrels. During this sometimes very long period (especially for alcohols), a natural loss due to evaporation reduces the volume of the content. This “lost” part is called “the part of the angels”.
In 2012, the Fuente factory experienced a terrible fire during which they lost a lot of high-value tobacco. In fact, the warehouses that burned contained tobacco that had been kept since the fifties or even the forties! The Fuente family treasured them with the intention of using them to commemorate their 100th anniversary. Unfortunately fate decided otherwise because the fire consumed most of these reserves. The event upset and deeply saddened the Fuente family – but that’s where the Angel’s Share came from.
Carlito thought that the Angels who took advantage of the exceptional aromas of his precious extinct tobacco would bring back their blessing for the family’s future businesses – hence this very special and very personal name.
