Arturo Fuente Don Carlos #2 Reviews
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.
I've been smoking AF DC #2 for the last 3 years and I've never looked back. IMO, better than any of OpusX lines I've smoked. Aged about 2 years, and these sticks are ready to go. Construction, burn and taste are phenomenal. Put them in your humi and let nature take over!
these are by far one of my favorites if not "MY FAVORITE" especially when aged about a year or two wow def. awesome stick
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.
Started to unwrap shortly after cutting,fairly hard draw,also pretty much tasteless. I'll stick to camacho corojos.
Great first puff to last. No bitter or hars or raspy taste throughout smoke.
Best cigar I smoked to date replacing my old favorite A. Fuente Hemingway Classic.
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! - Julius , Alabama
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.
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.
