    Arturo Fuente Casa Cuba

    Carlos Fuente Sr.’s son, Carlito, has blended many of the Arturo Fuente company’s recent offerings, but the Casa Cuba is a cigar that represents his father’s blending expertise. It features an Ecuadoran wrapper and Dominican binder and filler tobaccos that were grown from Cuban seeds. The cigar’s gingerbread, nutmeg, and cinnamon flavors provide proof that Carlos Sr. has not lost his touch. Named for sets of dominoes—the game is a national pastime in Cuba—the cigar is offered in four sizes: Doble Tres (5½ × 44), Doble Cuatro (4½ × 54), Doble Cinco (5 × 50), and Doble Seis (6 × 50). ($10.95–$12.50) arturofuente.com
