"Hemingway is still tops"
I wanted to see how these stacked up against my fav Fuente. The Hemingway, while less complex, simply has better flavor. This is still a good cigar with outstanding construction.

"VERY disappointing for the price!"
Started to unwrap shortly after cutting,fairly hard draw,also pretty much tasteless. I'll stick to camacho corojos.

"This cigar is like a fine woman!"
The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos #2 Bellicose is like a fine woman: smooth and delicate on the outside, mild and sweet to the taste, a beautiful bouquet, perfectly constructed which gets better and better and has a bold finish!

Almost a perfect smoke, I too have smoked the Opus X, but for the money this cigar is great. It has the classic Fuente taste, excellent burn and a wonderful aroma. I enjoy relaxing with this cigar.

"Simply the best"
Keep the overpriced Opus X and Padron Anniversary's. This is where you want to spend your money. Simply one of the finest if not the finest tobacco works of art out there. Superior construction and burn, incredible, complex flavor with a hint of Fuente sweetness and an enveloping aroma which will spin your head. Simply the best. P.S. The Cuban Monte #2 is good but I like the #4 better.

"Who needs Cubans?"
This has now become the no.2 favorite in my humidor. A well constructed, rich and beautiful cigar- I've enjoyed every one to the very end.

"One of my top 5 cigars"
Exquisit flavor and flawless smoke. Loaded with coffee and cocoa flavors. Very well constructed, and better burn. Clear evidence fo perfection is not unique to Cuban cigars.

"Best Arturo Fuente"
I believe these are AF's top cigar, the best thing is the taste followed by their wonderful appearance. I wish they burned as well as they taste, not that they burn that all badly, just not as well as some. I have learned that 6 weeks or so in a proper humidor improves the burn. That may be why people who smoke them right out of the box get angling or tunneling. One of my top 3, highly recommended.
