When in stock, Arturo Fuente cigars don't last for an extended time - and justifiably so. The Fuente family, who are popular in the cigar industry, have been producing cigars for many years and they never rush their manufacturing process. Since Arturo Fuente are very affordable they usually sell out
USE TO BUY AT LEAST 2 BOXES OF A YEAR OF CHURCHILL MADUROS SINCE 1998, BUT IN THE LAST YEAR OR SO QUALITY AND TASTE DOESN'T SEEM QUITE AS GOOD, IN FACT SOMETIMES FAIRLY UNPLEASANT. I GAVE ALMOST HALF OF MY LAST BOX AWAY TO SOMEONE WHO WASN'T QUITE SO DISCONCERTING. I'M CURRENTLY ENJOYING MACANUDO MADUROS.
I ve been smoking cigars for about a few months now and I certainly cant provide a real meaningful review....I can only say that I was very disappointed in this Churchill. I ve had the 858 which was wonderful and the curlyhead also a wonderful smoke . Both were so much better than this cigar.....maybe i just picked a dud. I can really only give a thumbs up or thumbs down .....this is a thumbs down.
An often overlooked hidden GEM!
The AF Maduro Churchills used to be my favorite cigar. I used them as the standard to which I compared other cigars. In the last two years, that has changed, sadly. They are now of hit-or-miss quality. My last box, 12/08. has virtually no taste or aroma. Very sad, indeed. Quality control has apparently ceased at AF.
