The Don Carlos Edición de Aniversario Double Robusto was selected as one of the top 5 cigars of 2008 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 - - - -."

Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario was chosen as Best of the Best by Robb Report (June 2007) . "- - - - wrapped in aged Dominican tobaccos from Château de la Fuente. The rich and oily wrapper belies the idea that a dark leaf produces a harshly strong taste; it offers a sugary-chocolate flavor. The taste of the Dominican binder and filler blend is rich and spicy, like that of a New York strip steak without sauce, and the tobacco is so well-aged and -rolled that during our blind testing, I tried to tap off an inch-long ash and it would not budge."
Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario, Double Robusto 2006
: Don Carlos Edicion de Aniversario cigars are revered for classic, aged flavor; to this tradition, the 2006 Double Robusto adds subtle, exotic flavors and aromas. Hints of Middle Eastern spices such as cardamom and nutmeg accent the Double Robusto’s smooth, leathery taste. A faint, fresh suggestion of pine bark gives the Double Robusto an intriguing, memorable aroma.

"And when one asks about the picturesque painted rock scorpion colorfully stretched out across a green expanse of lawn, Carlito will tell you that Scorpio was the astrological birth sign of his grandfather Arturo, born on November 18th. Perhaps not by chance, this was also the date the very first boxes of Fuente Fuente OpusX were shipped to America.

Next to Scorpio is another symbol, Taurus the Bull, the astrological sign shared by Carlito and his father, Don Carlos. Both have birth dates only seven days apart, a unification of their spirit that embodies this enchanted land.

Indeed, the stars were aligned when Chateau de la Fuente was created."
