2012 was the 100th anniversary of Arturo Fuente and the 125th anniversary of W. Curtis Draper. The Washington D.C. retailer and the Tampa-based manufacturer teamed up to make a cigar, a really good cigar. It’s a tweaked version of the legendary Don Carlos Senior Blend and a cigar that flew under the radar until it was sold out, and is now likely to be on the Best of 2012 lists for those that were lucky enough to get one of the 2,000 total cigars that were released in October. If you win (The) Contest, we’ll let you have one.
