"Like the good ol days"
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

"Good Taste, great value, daily smoker"
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

"A Burst of earthy smoke!"
I smoked a small one and it was just enough flavor to tied me over for the day. Not bad at all.

"GREEN IS GOOD."
AT FIRST I WAS A LITTLE HESITANT ABOUT TRYING A "GREEN" CIGAR BUT I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRIZED. THIS IS A PRETTY TASTY SMOKE. I DON'T KNOW IF IT WILL BECOME A REGULAR FOR ME BUT I WILL DEFINETLY BUY ANOTHER 5 PACK TO KEEP ON HAND FOR WHEN I'M IN THE MOOD FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

"Excellent smoke. Consistant in every way."
The claro wrapper gives the 858 a mild flavor with an excellent after taste.

"Makes heads turn... even on the golf course!"
You know the wind howls at the golf links, but even there, my 858, claro wrapper, made heads turn with its distinctive aroma. Sure, I had to hand out some to the guys, but, so what? As long as you keep them in stock, I'm happy to share...

"Really liked the Claro"
Having never tried a cigar with a candela wrapper before, I picked up a few of these to try. Their reputation as the wrapper of choice for cheap cigars always kind of turned me off to them. Boy, was that a mistake. The 8-5-8's with claro wrappers are real gems. They look great, not cheap at all. Very smooth looking wrapper which has a really nice, silky feel to it. It's green color does take a bit of getting used to, though. Great construction, as is always the case with Fuente. I also love this size, just a bit slimmer than a corona gorda, but thicker than a corona or lonsdale. Tastes is great too. I had heard that candela wrapped cigars were usually very mild. While this is no blowtorch, it is not a lightweight either. Somewhere between mild and medium. Very smooth. Refined. This has become one of my new favorites. I could smoke this everyday and not get tired of it.
