When almost 100 Famous customers give these Fuente Don Carlos robsutos a '91' rating, you just know it's gotta be a winner. The dark-natural Cameroon wrappers burn true with a firm ash, and fragrant aromas of sweet wood, earth, and coffee bean. Medium in body, if you only buy 1 Fuente, buy this one.
If I had the money I wouldn't smoke anything but these.
I quit smoking cigarettes 13 years ago and one of my golfing buddies handed me an A. Fuente Don Carlos after the round. My first puff is a dissapointment because I almost throw the cigar but my second draw tell the difference. When I got home fired up the computer and went on-line to check the web site. Lucky enough, there is only one left and without hesitation hit the order button even its pricey but I deserve a good cigar on the 19th hole.
This is a very complex well-constructed cigar. The appearance and taste of the Cameroon wrapper are impressive. Although I'm not good at hitting the flavor descriptions of a cigar this one definitely has a spicy-pepper twang with notes of sweetness that may be similar to caramel. This one even hit me in the back of my throat (if you know what I mean) as I neared the end. And after smoking a few and looking at the FSS price, they're worth every penny.
