Casa Fuente will air nationwide later this month.
Arturo Fuente has announced that he is delaying the planned release of new Rare Pink cigars – two new sizes are due to be released this month – and is therefore sending stores across the country a limited supply of Casa Fuente, the cigar made for the Store. of Las Vegas of the same name.
There will be 10 different cigars sold, seven from the main Casa Fuente line and three from the Series 5. Each will be sold in boxes of 25 with the exception of the Casa Fuente Double Robusto, which comes in boxes of 42.
Although Arturo Fuente has never officially disclosed the exact blend of Casa Fuente, it is regularly described as a Cameroonian wrapper on a blend of Dominican tobaccos, likely similar to OpusX. There are seven cigars from the original line that will hit stores:
There are also three Casa Fuente Series 5 cigars on the market. These cigars instead use an Ecuadorian wrapper from Sumatra. Again, the charge mix has not been officially disclosed. There are three Casa Fuente Series 5 cigars that are heading to stores, all with natural packaging, as opposed to maduro:
Casa Fuente is a retail store located in the Forum Shops at Ceasars Palace in Las Vegas. The store opened in 2005 thanks to a partnership between Michael and Robert Frey from FreBoy Tobacco / CigarBox and Robert Levin of Holt’s / Ashton. Arturo Fuente licenses his name to the store, which only sells cigars from Fuente and his partners like Ashton, JC Newman and Prometheus.
With one official exception, Casa Fuente cigars are only available in stores and customers are limited in the number they can purchase. That one exception is an annual event held at Holt’s in Philadelphia called Fuentemania, where Casa Fuente was offered. Liana Fuente, Vice President of Brand Development for Fuente, said half wheel that the company actually asked Holt’s for permission to sell Casa Fuente cigars nationally and Holt’s agreed to.
This is part of Fuente’s âLocal Supportâ campaign, which is designed to help its physical stores in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Liana Fuente said half wheel that the pandemic was particularly hard on Vegas, and that the company wanted to send a bit of Vegas to people who might not have visited in the past 18 months.
Fuente said half wheel that stores will receive a shipment that will be similar to what stores receive for their Fuente Fuente OpusX allocations, although perhaps a little larger. She declined to discuss pricing details, although when the cigars were sold to Fuentemania, the prices were lower due to Nevada’s higher tax rate. Stores in low-tax states, as long as they don’t mark cigars beyond normal margins, will end up offering lower prices than they are sold for in Las Vegas.
As for the rare roses, Fuente continues to ship the cigar on a limited basis, but no timeline has been given for when the New Queen of Hearts (3 3/4 x 54) and the Sophisticated Whore ( 7 1/4 x 53) vitolas will be shipped. The company had planned to release them in October to register for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For each box of rare roses, Fuente donates $ 13 for each box sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
