Arturo Fuente Royal Salute Sun Grown cigars utilize a rich, naturally sweet, Ecuadorian wrapper encased in a cedar sleeve for lush marriage of flavor and marvelous aroma for a well rounded smoking experience. Using well-aged longfiller tobaccos, this full flavored cigar is a stogie lover's dream.
Two years since my last review. My everyday cigar, never varies. You can t go wrong with this smoke. Great flavor, super construction and good smoking time. I have tried many, many others during the last 50 years but you simply cannot go wrong with this medium to full beauty.
Have been smoking these for a few years now, once in a while I stray to try other cigars but come back quickly. This is the finest cigar that I have ever smoked. Good in any venue, lasts 9 holes, you can finish a bunch of yard work or kick back for 50 minutes. If there is anything better out there I don't know what it is. I have been smoking cigars for over 40 years. Bless these people when they put them on sale. (even when its just a few bucks)
Those Double Chateaus are good alright, but not as good as these. I think the Chateau's higher rating is a function of those boys just never having tried a Royal Salute - or they would surely go back and correct their scores (if such a thing were possible). Like the Excalibur No. 1 Maduro and the Prensado (Oscuro)...the Fuente Hemingway Classic...the Punch Chatteau "L" Oscuro...the Torano Tribute, Silver, Gold, Signature, (well, pretty much all the Toranos!!!...the Royal Salute exists in a rarified class...world class!
