Arturo Fuente will be adding a trio of new sizes to its Rare Pink line, bringing the total number of cigars in the line to seven.
The first two vitolas are scheduled to arrive in December to India: 3 3/4 x 54 and 7 1/4 x 53. Like the rest of the sizes in the line, they will be perfectos.
Carlos “Carlito” Fuente Jr. had mentioned there will be a third size launching 2022 perhaps, he described as a “Lancero Figurado”, which to us at The India Cigar Club is rather interesting.
The line, formally known as Rare Pinks Vintage 1960’s Series, debuted late last year. It uses an Ecuadorian wrapper over a mixture of filler tobaccos, including tobacco from the Fuente farms in Nicaragua.
The company is donating approx 840 INR for every box sold to Breast Cancer Research Foundation. . Liana Fuente has spearheaded the effort to raise awareness and funds through this project and others.
Fuente made it clear when the Rare Pink line debuted that there would be more sizes. The original four sizes and their approximate MSRPs for India are as follows:
- Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Short Story (4 x 42/49) — ₹2500.00
- Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Signature (6 x 46) — ₹3500.00
- Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Work of Art (4 7/8 x 46/60) — ₹3700.00
- Arturo Fuente Rare Pink Happy Ending (5 1/2 x 53) — ₹4235.00
