This Arturo Fuente is fantastic! Exactly what you expect from the Fuente family -- after all, they are highly respected in the cigar business for a reason.
It starts off with the sweet taste of cedar which turns into a delicious leather-earthy flavor with a little bit of that great A. Fuente spice. You can pick up hints of coffee and vanilla as it gradually gets peppery, which is quite enjoyable.
The effortless draw makes it easy to smoke from beginning to end. It also comes in a cedar sleeve that is great for aging and lighting (tastes better than a match). We even found this limited cigar to be more enjoyable than the higher priced A. Feunte’s.
