The BEST DOMINICAN CIGARS of 2009 by European Cigar Journal:

 
The BEST CIGARS by Cigar Aficionado:
    
The Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario Double Robusto was selected as one of the top 5 cigars by Cigar Aficionado.
 
"The Fuente family has been making Arturo Fuente Don Carlos cigars since 1976, longer (by four years) than they have been making cigars in the Dominican Republic. The blend is the creation of Carlos Fuente Sr., patriarch of the family. In 2006, his son, Carlos Fuente Jr., made the Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario to celebrate the 30 years of Don Carlos cigars. He swapped out the Cameroon wrapper for the Dominican shade-grown leaf he uses on Fuente Fuente OpusX. He also boosted the cigar's power considerably. The result is a tremendously intense and complex blend - - - -."

Review by Gordon Mott, Editor of Cigar Aficionado:
    
"From the first puff, I was overwhelmed with the complexity of the cigar. It had that subtle sweetness that I always find alluring in the Don Carlos line, but it had that overlay of pepper spice and leather that I frequently taste in the FFOX cigars. It doesn't quite have the power of a regular FFOX cigar, but the balance is extraordinary, and there is an earthy, leathery note that lingers on the finish. I wasn't tasting blind, but I can tell that it would be a cigar that would approach our Classic category, or 95 points."  READ THE FULL REVIEW
 
Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was chosen as Best of the Best by Robb Report.
      

This is not a regular Don Carlos cigar," says Carlos Jr., aka Carlito.  "It's a special version of his cigar that I am making in tribute to my father, but made 'Carlito's way.' It's a little spicy with a silent undercurrent that, if you're not careful, is going to knock you off your feet."
