Arturo Fuente Añejo Reserva No.48 cigars have the same filler & binder as the Fuente Fuente OpusX cigars, but with a sweet, oily, U.S. Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper that's aged for one year in oak cognac barrels. The smoke is bold, smooth, complex and every bit luxurious. A must-smoke!
All I can say is that this cigar was so complex, it had me enjoying it from the light all the way to the finish. Had a great, dark maduro wrapper with good looking oils that smelled of cocoa when unwrapping. It had a medium draw, but packed a lot of smoke with each puff. It changed throughout the entire smoke from nutty, to peppery, spicy, earthy, leathery, and sweet again and again... smoked it for an hour and a half appreciating the changes. One of, if not the best Fuente I've had. Paired it with coffee I brought back from the hills of Costa Rica that made the flavors really stand out. Kinda pricey, but worth it no doubt!1 0
