Spectacular burn, gorgeous flavor, perfect draw..If they were only a little bigger.
It s a very smooth, creamy cigar. Not super complex, but a nice, quick smoke. As it gets to the nub, it gets sweeter and sweeter til at the end I was getting a very sweet cherry flavor, almost like a marachino cherry. If youre a fan of the hemmingway series, and other Cameroon wrapped cigars, this is a great smoke. My only complaint was it was super cracked under the band. That could have been done anywhere, and it s not necessarily a common problem cause I only had the one, but it was worth mentioning.
I picked these up in place of my personal favorites, the A Fuente Hemingway Signature. Found them to be a very pleasant substitute. They are very smooth, medium body cigars. While they lack some of the complexity of other smokes, they are certainly worthy of the Arturo Fuente banner. You really just can t go wrong with the Arturo Fuente line.
