Monopoly Player? You will think you landed on Free Parking with this A. Fuente jewel! I've smoked the full line and for the money it is a wonderful smoke! mild yet complex, smooth and just plain delicious! Stock up when they got 'em, you cant go wrong, period!
I ve had a couple of these sitting in my humidor for several months. They came mixed in with one of the orders and I usually save those for non-cigar buddies. Anyway, I broke down and tried one today. It actually wasn t a bad smoke, but in my opinion, shouldn t be in this price range. There are lots of better cigars in that range. The burn consistency is good, but the draw was off and on throughout the cigar. The ash fell off every few minutes. A little spicy for my taste without any complexity; borderline harsh. It s ok but I wouldn t buy them unless the price comes way down....just an ok smoke; the kind they should throw in as samples, along with box orders
Arturo quality, not heavy, A top rated cigar for considerably less price.
Absolutely amazing, great draw, great flavor start to finish. I will buy more of these...
I have been smoking these for years,you just cant beat the flavor and consistancy of this cigar.This is an anytime cigar,with the best flavor I have had before or after a meal.Rich, smooth,yet toasty and nut like with a taste of caramel. I highly reccomend this cigar.
Updated rating for this marvelous stick and it's great! I haven't had any burn issues and in fact, it burns better than some of the Cubans i have in my humi! My only complaint...is that the draw is to airy / loose but it's better if i punch the cap instead of cutting it.
Not sure what the other reviews are going on about, these tasted quite harsh to me when smoked new. I m going to let them sit for a few years though, they are a great value with excellent construction to be expected from any AF cigar .
Real nice balanced taste that has more depth than most cigars regardless of cost. The 858 natural is one of my 2 favorite smokes (the Fuente Churchill natural is the other). The strenght is on the mild side of medium but not too mild. Like any handrolled cigar you can expect some inconsistency but it is minimal. I rarely have one that is a difficult draw or where the wrapper unravels. All in all the 858 natural is better than the Fuente Hemingway line.
One of the best, most consistent cigars out there. I've never had a bad one, and never had one I didn't smoke down to a nub. If I could only have one cigar, this would be it.
Great "Toro" size from Fuente which offers about 1 hour of spice, anise, some chocolate and wood tones on the finish. Great construction and burn. Aroma is fantastic...even wifey doesn't complain about this one.
This cigar leans towards the mild side of medium. It lights well and burns evenly. The first half of this cigar is light and somewhat creamy. During the second half of the smoke, I started picking up subtle flavors of wood and spice. The final third of this cigar is where the taste really kicks in - still not a solid medium in strength but getting there. It is not as aromatic as I would have thought and to some, that will be a plus. My main AF smoke is the Don Carlos 3. This 858 will not take its place as my favorite AF, but I will buy boxes more of these as an everyday smoke.
I smoked my first one last week and was impressed right off the bat. Construction was great with no hard spots or spongy spots on the cigar. From start to finish my stick had great aroma and burn. The taste was a bit mild for my liking but that's not the cigars fault. Just my preference.Recommended!
