I just learned that Mr. Fuente passed very recently at age 81....

Arturo Fuente Cigars was established around 1912, and was sold to his son Carlos Sr. for $1 in 1958. His life was a very moving story, and well worth the read...

Quote:
"From a humble beginning in Ybor City, Florida, making cigars from his parent's home, Fuente Sr. built Fuente into an international powerhouse, with its cigars known and revered the world over. His company today makes more than 30 million cigars a year in Santiago, Dominican Republic, all of them by hand."
