Name: Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Belicoso
Country: Dominican Republic
Size: (5 3/8 inches x 52)
I burned this cigar at a cigar lounge in Yerevan. They didn’t have a wide variety of cigars, but they did have Arturo Fuente lines on display. And that’s usually enough to make a cigar lounge a good one. The place was almost empty, but it turned out to be an evening well spent with an old friend. He was new to cigars, so after catching up, I gave him a crash course: how to cut and light a cigar, how to smoke a cigar, how to pick a cigar, and so on…
The Don Carlos burned wonderfully. I paired the first third with espresso, the second third with a glass a peated whisky, and the last third with water. Everything was great.
