The term “Angel’s Share” is used in the wine making process. Wine makers often use oak barrels to store their wine during the aging process. When the wine ages for long periods of time, some of it will evaporate fro the barrel. The evaporated wine is called the Angel’s Share, alluding to the belief that the guardian angels that watch over the wine sample it and give their blessings.

Since we lost so much priceless, aged tobacco during the fire in 2012, the inspiration for this cigar came from that exact term. The warehouses that burned down contained tobacco that had been aging since the late ‘40s and ‘50s. The Fuente family was saving it for the special, 100-year anniversary. Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, as the fire consumed much of the precious tobacco. It made the family extremely sad and depressed, but out of that came the Angel’s Share cigar. From this, it is implied that the angels enjoyed the enticing aroma from the tobacco that burned in the barns, but in turn, gave their blessings to the Fuente family for future successful endeavors.Arturo Fuente

Angel’s Share is blended as a milder version of the popular OpusX blend. OpusX is well-known as the first successful Dominican puro experience, introduced in 1995. But in 2012, Fuente introduced a milder version of the notoriously intense blend. The cigars feature Dominican tobaccos grown on the Fuente’s  Château de la Fuente farm and use lower primings, as opposed to the upper primings of OpusX. This, as well as a tweaked filler blend, make for a smoother, more delicate and refined OpusX experience.
