Was looking for a cigar that I could buy and share on the course with my foursome on Saturdays. Didn't expect to find such a gold mind. Smooth taste, good draw, consistent smoke, even easy to relight without that bitter bite. The guys have asked me to renew this order when we go through this box. Which is nice, because from an affordability stand point, I can do that without breaking the house. If you are looking for a more mild cigar, and you like smoking The Griffin's, I would put this cigar on par with that genre.
Of all the cigars in sampler packs that I've tried, I think "La Fontana" Belicoso is the one for me. The cigar is a very smoothe cigar, which burns even and has a nice mild aromatic scent. The taste is one that is very light which compliments lightly sweet wrapper. If the draw end of the cigar is cut just right it can be one of the easiest smoking cigars you've tried and the price is just right. Although I thought I had found the right cigar for me on a prior tasting, after my first experience with this cigar, I've concluded that this is the one and there are no other sampler packs I need to try so that I can find the right cigar for me, so I purchased my first box recently and loving every minute of it.
This is an affordable smoke. Good rich smoke along with a mild sweat taste. They are worth every penny.
La Fontana Vintage puccini is the best tasting cigar i have ever smoked
WHAT A NICE AFFORDABLE AND DELICIOUS CIGAR!!! FROM THE CONSTRUCTION TO THE SMOKE-A-BILTY.... THIS CIGAR HAS IT ALL!!
This has to be the most underated ane overlooked cigar I have seen. It compares to ones twice the cost. This is a smooth draw with a great taste. No after taste. This is a mild cigar. This should be your first try.
Well made. Sweet and mild quality cigar with great looks. It only remains firmly all the way in through!
The flavor is an excellent, dry, mildly spicy smoke from beginning to end. The slightly sweet infusion in the wrapper balances nicely against the other flavors. The cigar is reminiscent of a flakey pastry with pistachios. The draw is perfect, the ash is solid, the packing is even throughout the smoke. The only complaint is that the wrapper on the current ones is prone to unwrap and is a bit delicate. But the flavor is wonderfully mild and complex.
This is a real hidden gem! For the price, it is an excellent cigar that if you took the cigar band off many will assume it s a Montecristo. My favorite daytime cigar by far!
I have always liked this cigar and appreciate the sweet tip. I find it to be well constructed, consistently good and well priced.
Really smooth cigar, nice burn, and I love the size. The sweet flavor at the start is probably unnecessary but it doesn't take away from the experience. Truly a great cigar at an incredible price. -Bob
I quit smoking cigarettes in 2003. I started sampling cigars in 2015 when I turned 65 to fulfill a promise to myself . La Fontana Vintage Michelangelo Cigars are absolute nectar! The draw is consistently soft, voluminous clouds of smoke, no bite, great taste - everything I remember about being a two pack a day smoker. And without inhaling! I love this cigar and am re-ordering now while they are on sale.
