Smoking the Casa Fuente is as enjoyable as visiting the cigar’s namesake boutique and lounge, which the Fuente family opened a year ago at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The contents of the Cameroon leaf–wrapped blend remain a secret, but the cigar has a familiar mellow taste and peppery undercurrent that suggest the tobaccos likely come from the same Château de la Fuente farm as the leaf used in the highly acclaimed OpusX.
“We have people who fly into Las Vegas and come directly here with a shopping list of the sizes they want,” says Casa Fuente manager Michael Fayerverger. “Then, very often, they’ll get right back on the plane without ever stopping at a casino.” After tasting the cigar, few of our panelists would question the value of such a trip.
