ASSOULINE Arturo Fuente Since 1912

In a private setting attended by Carlitos Fuente Jr., Jeremiah Meerapfel and Fares Nasr and among others, this book was be presented at The Library at Address Boulevard Dubai starting at 7pm.

Humble, resilient, and strong: The Arturo Fuente family is all that and more. Their saga begins with Don Arturo Fuente in pursuit of the American Dream, deploying his cherished Cuban artisanal strengths, then continues to his son, Don Carlos Fuente Sr., grandson, Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr., and his sister, Don Arturo’s granddaughter, Cynthia Fuente. Waiting in the wings: the up-and-coming fourth generation.

The pleasure of a smoke and the comfort, solace, and camaraderie found in a great cigar have been a source of enjoyment for centuries. This book tells the tale of a true legacy, from Fuente’s earliest years to the creation of the world-renowned Fuente Fuente OpusX, the first commercially viable all-Dominican-grown and -rolled puro ever—and its remarkable resultant contribution to the evolution of modern cigars.

The book celebrates the accomplishments of the past three generations of the Fuente family, their cigars, and how their surname, and the OpusX marque, have become synonymous with epicurean global luxury. With contributions from actor-director Andy García and Ciro Cascella, the executive president of Tabacalera A. Fuente, this volume is a tribute to the cigar as a timeless passion, and to the Fuente family.

This oversize hand-bound book, finished with authentic hand-tipped cigar bands and presented in a handcrafted clamshell box, is a must-have for any cigar connoisseur— especially so for Arturo Fuente devotees.
