This blend is based on the original Don Carlos cigar (which was released in 1976), it was altered a bit for the Eye of the Shark release. If you want to know exactly what makes the Eye of the Shark different from the regular Don Carlos line, you're going to have to use your imagination. The Fuentes are quite guarded with this blend.
One puff of this cigar, and you'll know you're smoking an elevated blend, something comfortingly familiar to many Fuente fans, with a slight twist. People who are familiar with brand owner (and now, company patriarch) Carlos Fuente Jr. know that he blends instinctively rather than by strict formula, especially when creating unorthodox cigars like this one. The shape adds to the intrigue. Eye of the Shark is neither box-pressed nor conventional. The bottom half is pressed and the upper half tapers into a regular, rounded belicoso. Fuente has used the shape before, so as quirky as it may seem, it's recurred in other lines, but only in limited quantities. As for why it's called the Eye of the Shark, it's most likely due to the overall form. If you look at the cigar horizontally, it resembles the body of great white shark.
