"not impressed with construction"
could not keep most lit, kept having to relite, real firm draw, 8 of 10 so far were this way. opt for the sungrown version, never had a issue with those

"Quality smoke, keep in your humidor."
My first Fuente was a bust! The construction was nice, the draw a bit tight, the burn uneven and the flavor was mediocre at best, it tasted leathery and peppery but not consistent. I left them in the bottom of the box.It has been over 6 months in the humidor and I tried it again, WOW this smoke completely changed. The construction is still good, appearence is fine,the draw even throughout, the burn was even and the taste, very smooth with undertones of leathery,peppery-mutmeg. Very nice. I tried another one and the same results, a fine cigar. The key to A.Fuentes are to let them rest in your box for 6 months and let them settle, you won't be sorry. I had these with my Spatten beer(sp) from Costco. A good combination. Now I will enjoy the rest!!

This stick remind me of the 858 Maduro with the exceptions of being a bit fuller bodied and a bit more expensive. Great cigar at a good price. I've had a few and the burn and construction is always spot on. Good stuff!

"My daily smoke,"
I enjoy one of these every single day except for Sundays when I bring out the Anejo.
This cigar is just the best daily smoke you could ask for, it's consistent, long lasting and burns well enough to make me smile.

A large cigar packed with quality for about $5. An every day cigar for nearly everybody.

"A personal favorite"
My wife bought me a sampler of dominicans and these were in it. It was the first one I tried and immediately was my favorite. I have since tried most of the rest and still go back to these as the best. They are smooth and tasty with increasing complexity. Rarely do i want two cigars back to back, but these would do it for me. I could smoke these all day long. Reasonably priced so enjoy!

"Most Consistent of the many I smoke"
I find this cigar to very consistent day in and day out. This is my go to smoke. The maduro wrapper gives it such a great taste, even burn, with minimal harsheness on the finish.

"A great cigar"
This is a larger ring size than I normaly smoke but I decided to try them. The burn was great, the flavor was excellant and the appearance was great. I drink Seagrams 7 crown on the rocks with my cigars and it was a good match. Arturo Fuente makes a great cigars and this is a standout.

"Wow ! What a beautiful cigar."
I am fairly new to cigars, bought a box of these at auction and have enjoyed them so much I can't wait to get another box. They will be in my humidor from now on. Great burn, flavor, and taste!
