Arturo Fuente Ships Rare Pink Vintage 1960’s Line – Including Two New Sizes

October 15, 2022 By Matthew Tabacco

Rare Pinks on display at PCA 2021

Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness month, Arturo Fuente ships out another batch of their limited production Rare Pink Vintage 1960’s series cigars with two new sizes we first saw last year at PCA 2021. In addition to the Signature (6 x 46), Happy Ending (5 1/2 x 43), Work of Art (4 7/8 x 46/60), and Short Story (4 x 42/49) – the Sophisticated Hooker (7 1/4 x 53) and the Queen of Hearts (3 3/4 x 54) will join the list of the all figurado line. These cigars will be available at select Arturo Fuente authorized retailers and in limited supply.

The Rare Pinks were blended by Carlito Fuente with inspiration from his daughter, Liana Fuente, after she lost both her aunt and grandmother to breast cancer. She has since been a heavy supporter and advocate for the disease and even raised and donated money to multiple breast cancer causes. The Rare Pink line debuted originally back in 2020.

The Rare Pinks use an Ecuadorian wrapper from Olivia Tobacco Company’s La Mecca farm and aside from some Nicaraguan tobacco, most of the blend is undisclosed. This is the first time the Sophisticated Hooker and Queen of Hearts sizes have ever shipped.
