Virtuozity - - Event -

In March, Dubai-based cigar afi­ciona­dos were treated to an ex­tremely spe­cial evening. baqer Mo­hebi en­ter­prises, the dis­trib­u­tor of ar­turo Fuente cigars, hosted an event cel­e­brat­ing the Fuente brand at the ritz-carl­ton, Dubai In­ter­na­tional Financial cen­tre (DIFC). More than 100 fans of the brand at­tended the event, held at the ho­tel’s sunken Gar­den venue, which turned out to be the per­fect set­ting for the live Latin mu­sic and live cigar rolling.

along with these fes­tiv­i­ties, there were three Fuente cigars on of­fer—the Don car­los, the chateau Fuente and the Fuente Fuente For­bid­den X. What’s more, guests were treated to a spe­cial ap­pear­ance from car­los P. Fuente Jr., Pres­i­dent of ar­turo Fuente cigars, who flew in from Mi­ami to meet the re­gion’s fans of the brand.

The venue

Like the many gal­leries that sur­round it, The ritz-carl­ton DIFC dis­plays its pas­sion for art and the area’s sta­tus as an im­por­tant cul­ture des­ti­na­tion with its own ro­tat­ing in­ter­na­tional col­lec­tion. con­nois­seurs can also meet artists of lo­cal renown in the city’s emerg­ing art com­mu­nity. From the mes­meris­ing crys­tal branches that high­light the ho­tel ceil­ing to the chicago-in­flu­enced art deco de­sign, the vis­ual crafts­man­ship draws guests in to a very unique sense of place.

This sense of oc­ca­sion also ap­plies to the sunken Gar­den, an al­fresco venue for drinks, cock­tails and light evening meals. sur­rounded by a serene land­scape of palm trees and a dra­matic wa­ter fountain, the venue is well known for of­fer­ing guests a se­lec­tion of over 30 fla­vors of shisha. how-

The cigars

The first cigar of the evening was the Ar­turo Fuente Don Car­los. To cre­ate this stick, Car­los Fuente, Sr. blended to­gether rare, vin­tage to­bac­cos that were hand se­lected and aged as much as 10 years. These cigars are rich and fla­vor­ful, with African Cameroon wrap­pers. These cigars are re­leased in lim­ited quan­ti­ties and are among the finest cigars rolled at Taba­calera A. Fuente in the

Do­mini­can Repub­lic.

A rich, African Cameroon wrap­per over vin­tage Do­mini­can filler give way to fla­vors both com­plex and re­fined. The slightly sweet fla­vor pro­duced by the se­lect African Cameroon wrap­per is in per­fect bal­ance with the sa­vory aroma. Flaw­less con­struc­tion, a hall­mark of Taba­calera A. Fuente, en­sures an even burn and smooth draw.

The sec­ond cigar was the Chateau Fuentes, in­spired by the Chateau de la Fuente, home of the Ar­turo Fuente to­bacco plan­ta­tion. Each cre­ation is blended from the Fuente fam­ily’s pri­vate re­serve of aged to­bacco and rolled to the per­fect shape and size. Avail­able in both a silky Con­necti­cut shade wrap­per, and the more ro­bust Ecuado­rian sun­grown wrap­per, Chateau Fuente cigars are aged to per­fec­tion be­fore be­ing in­di­vid­u­ally wrapped in their sig­na­ture cedar sleeve.

Fi­nally, guests were treated to the Fuente Fuente For­bid­den X, a line that was born in mys­tery.these sticks are hand crafted by only the best of the best cigar rollers in the busi­ness. These ar­ti­sans work their crafts­man­ship in the For­bid­den Room at the fam­ily farm, Chateau de la Fuente, off lim­its to ev­ery­one else but Don Car­los and Car­l­ito. In this se­cret room, these torce­dors are handed a se­cret blend of seven dis­tinc­tive to­bac­cos, each hand-se­lected from among the prim­ings of the most flavour­ful leaves grown in the rich, fer­tile soil of Do­mini­can Repub­lic’s best lands. Each va­ri­ety of to­bacco adds fla­vor and com­plex­ity to the fin­ished prod­uct, so that the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.
