Arturo Fuente Cuban Corona
5 1/4 x 45 - Maduro - Single
When in stock, Arturo Fuente cigars don't last very long - and actually so. The Fuente family, who are well-known in the cigar industry, have been making cigars for generations and they never rush their production process. Since Arturo Fuente cigars are reasonably priced they normally sell out quick
I was surprised with this cigar. For the price I didn't have big expectations but this is a quite nice Maduro that is rich in chocolate and coffee tones that stay together to the end. I will be keeping these in my humidor for a nice treat after dinner when I want a touch of sweetness.
This is a somewhat rustic looking cigar with a veiny maduro wrapper. It looks, burns and draws a lot like a darker version of a Cuban Montecristo #4, which is my all time favorite cigar. It doesn't taste much like one, but it has a nice full flavor all the way down to the last inch with the emphasis on leather and earth with a hint of sweetness that increases toward the end. The aroma is fragrant, actually better than a Cuban. Until Famous starts selling Cubans, this one will be a regular purchase for me.
Love the taste and, if smoked properly, stay cool and non-bitter down to the last inch. I rarely smoke that far, but these sticks are worth it. Next time I'll try a larger variety and hope for the same taste. Of the ten I've smoke thus far, eight started burning at an angle after starting out even (that's an observation, not a criticism).
