La Fontana Vintage Reviews
Was looking for a cigar that I could buy and share on the course with my foursome on Saturdays. Didn't expect to find such a gold mind. Smooth taste, good draw, consistent smoke, even easy to relight without that bitter bite. The guys have asked me to renew this order when we go through this box. Which is nice, because from an affordability stand point, I can do that without breaking the house. If you are looking for a more mild cigar, and you like smoking The Griffin's, I would put this cigar on par with that genre.
Of all the cigars in sampler packs that I've tried, I think "La Fontana" Belicoso is the one for me. The cigar is a very smoothe cigar, which burns even and has a nice mild aromatic scent. The taste is one that is very light which compliments lightly sweet wrapper. If the draw end of the cigar is cut just right it can be one of the easiest smoking cigars you've tried and the price is just right. Although I thought I had found the right cigar for me on a prior tasting, after my first experience with this cigar, I've concluded that this is the one and there are no other sampler packs I need to try so that I can find the right cigar for me, so I purchased my first box recently and loving every minute of it.
Amazingly affordable luxury. I enjoy sweet tipped cigars and I messed around with ACID Toast or Kuba Kuba which cost at least twice the price until I discovered these babies a while ago and have no complaints. They taste better and cost less than ACID. I m perfectly happy with either these or Baccarat s. I do wonder how I m getting such quality sticks so inexpensively. If you like sweet cigars, you owe it to yourself to try 5 or a box!
Draw is good. Taste is great. Sweet cap only betters it. An overall good deal except one thing. They tend to die a few times before finished. I ve smoke three hoping the first was a fluke. All times they ve died 2-3x before I gave up re igniting it. If you can deal with that then you should really enjoy it
Just tried out the La Fontana ~ Wow what a pleasant surprise for under $6 bucks, enjoyed its silky smooth draw, nice flavor, perfect ash, as good as the Padron 1926 that I had yesterday cost $26
A very surprising cigar. I received the mild sampler #3 as part of another order and was very pleased with this cigar. The burn was excellent, draw was equally good, and the taste and appearance were quite OK. Consistency was quite good as well, but did not stand out as well as the other qualities.
The first impression I got was very spicy! Smoked it while walking the dog and about a 1/4 way through mellowed out to a decent slightly sweet flavor. Great draw with billows of creamy smoke. Cap had just a hint of sweetness. Just couldn't get a whole lot of flavor though. Probably wont try again.
Certainly NOT a cigar that you'd say..."I've found the one". For the price, it's not bad...kinda similar to getting an 80 on a test. Smoked it for about 40mins.
Bought a 5 pack in the auction. I was thrown off on 1st one, thought cap a bit sweet. These have grown on me! Very smooth and mellow with lots of creamy smoke!!! A must try...
