"Great "work around the house" smoke!"
Arturo Fuente Exquisitos
Great smoke for mowing the lawn or just working around the house.

"Fan Diddley Tastic"
Arturo Fuente Cuban Corona
There are very few cigars I find to be as good as this cigar. I tear one these delectable delights nightly and I can honestly say it is yummy!

"Doesn't Wear Well"
Arturo Fuente Double Chateau
I liked the first box of these enough that I bought a second box. Like all the handmade Fuentes, these are perfectly made cigars. But by the end of the second box, I decided that the taste is too earthy, too leathery, tastes harsh especially after right smoking something smoother. A real Cuban corona like a Monte #4 tastes much better. For a couple more dollars, go for the Hemingway Short Story.

"Did it mean to taste like manure?"
Arturo Fuente 858
I got this one in my Best of Fuente sampler. Unlike others, it tasted exactly like manure. Avoid it, especially if you are on the mild side of cigar spectrum.

"Smooth, flowery taste"
Arturo Fuente Curly Head Deluxe
This is a great cigar for its price. Do not confuse it with 858 Natural, because Maduro's taste is a lot more flowery.
The only bad thing about it is that sometimes it just fails to draw and you have either to turn into a vacuum cleaner or throw it away That's why awarded only 70 to "Draw" and "Construction".

Arturo Fuente Spanish Lonsdale Maduro 5 pack
What a great smoke, and affordable. Very nice taste, but mild and not overwhelmingly strong for a long stick!

"Nice smoke, get some"
Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente
I picked up a 5 pack of these. Was impressed. Smooth smoke, not too strong, not too weak. There are sticks I'd buy a single of or a 5 pack and sticks I'd buy a box of. I'd buy a box of these next time around. Very happy with them.

"Excellente! Sweet, rich, smooth smoke from Fuente"
'Best of Arturo Fuente' Sampler
I've just been enjoying one of these from a box with a code of August 2008. After 4 years in the humidor this cigar has developed an outstanding smooth and rich flavour profile - aging absolutely smoothes out the harshness of this cigar when young.
The cigar comes packaged in a box of 20, with individual stogies wrapped in plastic. Each cigar again is encased in a fragrant piece of Spanish cedar, tied with a green band. I applaud the "mini-humidor" that comes with the box (as to keep the cigars in a climate like that where they are manufactured). Great presentation overall.
Initial Impression: 9/10
After unwrapping the caffee-au-lait coloured cigar's initial smell carries the typical fragrances of summer hay, and light leather that I associate with this type of cigar, but surprisingly also bright notes of cocoa and vanilla, as well as an almost slightly floral sour tone. Very promising already.
My preference for preparing this size of cigar is to punch a hole, rather than cutting the cap. Initial draw fills mouth and nose with a wonderful aroma of fresh summer hay, with a slight sweetness.
I proceed preparing the cigar by carefully toasting the foot with a triple-torch butane lighter until the wrapper turns into a sharp line of bright grey ash and the foot itself is charred evenly. Then I light the cigar with four hearty puffs and let it rest for 20 seconds. The flavour profile of the toasted cigar upon lighting instantly reminds me of crushed black pepper, and a note of leather as you'd find in a horse stable in a dry and warm/sunny place.
The taste of this cigar was absolutely outstanding! The profile changed throughout the smoke from deep earthy tones to sweet coffee, caramel and chocolate. Anything but one-dimensional. Upon exhale I ever so often tasted coconut and vanilla. Very similar to Padron Serie D No.4 - but a tad brighter and more 'sunny'.
I obtained the best flavours from this cigar by smoking it slowly, almost like one would smoke a premium Virginia tobacco in a pipe. I could instantly feel and taste when I was puffing too fast and smoking the cigar hot: the otherwise smooth, mellow sweet flavour instantly turned spicy and acrid.
Smoking characteristics: 10/10
The cigar burned evenly as drawn with a razor down to the very end. With the punch cut, the draw was 100% perfect. The ash is of a fine light grey colour and packed very tight overall indicating a high quality tobacco leaf and outstanding manufacturing skills. Ash fell off the first time after I had smoked half the cigar and boy it was quite a windy day.
In summary: The cigar in my opinion perfectly captures the Carribean - the flavour profile vividly produced memories and smells of a stroll across a Dominican beach in the late afternoon sun.
