Arturo Fuente Spanish Lonsdale Maduro 5 pack
"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.

"Great smoke - buy them!"
Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente
These cigars are perfect for handouts, but save some for yourself - they have the taste of far more expensive Fuentes in a milder format, at a great price. Buy them even if you're not having a girl or boy :)

I love maduro cigars, and was pretty much a Punch smoker. After trying a few AF cigars, and after reading the reviews of these, I ordered a box of these jems. See where I am going here? They are a great smoke. Full-flavored, and contrary to some of the reviews, well made. Fantastic cigar.

Arturo Fuente Exquisitos
Great smoke. Medium bodied. Good burn, good draw, full mouth of smoke. Woody and nutty flavor profile all the way through (well 2/3 of the way through). I was smoking this out by the jacuzzi with some good friends and my buddy bumped my arm and the last 3rd fell into the hot tub. Alas! I'm ordering some more. Considering these as an everyday-er.

"One of the very best"
The Exquisitos Maduro has been one of my favorites for a long time. These are as good as any AF full size cigar. I give these a personal rating of 95. Try'em, you will not be sorry.
