Lone Wolf Lobo Fuerte
Since its founding in 1996 by actors James Belushi and Chuck Norris, the distinctly American cigar company Lone Wolf has avoided traveling with the pack. In keeping with this maxim, the company recently released its Lobo Fuerte, a smoke that is both rich and smooth. The tightly hand-rolled cigar is made from a puro Nicaraguan filler that is complemented by a chocolaty-rich and oily wrapper. The Lobo Fuerte is offered in five sizes and joins the Signature Select in a line infused with flavors richer and more powerful than those of other premium cigars at comparable prices. ($108 to $124 per box)
