Arturo Fuente 858 Reviews
Just a few nights ago we received a box of the 8-5-8's with the claro wrapper just in time for one of our poker parties.There are three of us that have formed an unofficial tasting and sharing club of premium cigars, with that in mind here is my review.... BEST CIGAR FOR THE MONEY AND MORE!!! The Fuentes have produced another very fine cigar the aroma, appearance and constrtuction are top notch. The ash is solid and stays forever, the draw fulfilling, and the tase exquisite. the only drawback to this cigar is the availability.If you haven't had one you should!
Of the last eight cigars I have recently sampled, this one is one enjoyable smoke. Can t go wrong with this one in your humidor.
Great cigar! I don t know why the claro cigars are not smoked as much as of the others but it must be lack of knowledge of cigar history. These cigars are a great treat mid day or morning. They will always be welcome in my humidor!
Construction, burn, and draw was excellent. When I first light up, it seemed a little bitter. After the first 1/2 inch into it the puro got mellow and the tobacco flavor came through. I'm no purist when it comes to cigars, but I know what I like. For the price I thought this was a good smoke and a nice change of pace from my usual choices.
I can recall back when I started smoking cigars there was just as many Candelas as the others and over the years they were almost forgotten it seems. I really really like em. I think they are a Med-Full flavor and body,I smoke @ least one a week these days.I sampled a few of those Iguana cigars and was pretty much disapointed with them. Puros Indios has a alright version too.However I'll stick wit these
Just bought a box of the 858's with the Claro wrapper and I won''t buy them again. Not much flavor and not much good aroma like the 858's with the maduro wrapper. Very disappointed!
if you are looking for a good daily smoke, this is a good value. Good smoke at a good price, mild to medium bodied, good draw and easy to smoke
I smoked a small one and it was just enough flavor to tied me over for the day. Not bad at all.
been smoking this brand for 10 yrs.and never had a bad one in the bunch.when i go places i take a hand full with me and hand them out to my friends.
