The Arturo Fuente Seleccion d’Oro is a best selling cigar by the Arturo Fuente brand. The brand opened operations in 1924 in Tampa, Florida. Theirs was a long and turbulent history—not one, but three factories were burned down over the subsequent years, one of them by the Sandinistas. Arturo Fuente overcame all these challenges, moving several times before finally opening up six factories in the Dominican Republic and becoming one of the most successful cigar companies. Among their most popular products is the Arturo Fuente Seleccion d’Oro Churchill.
The Arturo Fuente Seleccion d’Oro Churchill measures 7.2 x 48 and has a Connecticut shade grown wrapper, which is more delicate than the Cameroon and maduro wrappers used in the original Fuente lines. The wrapper is silky and smooth, showing only the faintest tracery of veins. This makes the Seleccion d’Oro a milder cigar. The Seleccion d’Oro is easy to light and burns evenly with no need to adjust. A great draw releases just the right volume of smoke and the ash stacks up perfectly before you need to tip it into the tray.
The flavors and aromas in the Seleccion d’Oro are woody and nutty, and consistent over the course of the cigar. It is a very unique blend, distinct from all other cigars. The cigar costs $7.00, but it can be very hard to find it in stock. What accounts for the rarity of the Arturo Fuente Seleccion d’Oro? This is such a popular cigar that shops tend to sell out of it quickly. Many smokers, both of milder cigars like this one and heavier ones, consider this among their favorites. So don’t despair if you can’t find a stick right away; this is a timeless smoke and it shouldn’t be long before someone re-stocks it.
