Arturo Fuente Don Carlos #3 Cigar Review

This 5.5×44 stick offered a medium body but medium-full strength experience. Burn was excellent, draw was on the firm side and excellent all the way down. Flavors were simple, offering one major flavor at a time, changing near the half way point from slightly sweet earthy to a little woody. Finish was short and clean with a bit of a pepper kick to enjoy only on the finish. Burn time to just past the band was 1:30 where it started getting a little warm. Thank you very much to for generously donating this stick for review! Photography by BG Pictures.

    I saw a neat documentary about the Fuente family business. Very cool!! All generations are involved in the business. I have never had and AF, something I look forward to someday.

    Had to check this one out given today’s events. Love watching your old reviews, they are so different then the ones now days.

    I have one of these sitting in the humidor but I might let it age while I build up my strength tolerance. I had the Don Carlos robusto and i remember it being pretty strong but not so bad that I had to stop or anything, and if I recall I noticed a couple flavor changes throughout the cigar. Hopefully this one is just as good!

    Correct me if I’m wrong nut don’t the Don Carlos use Cameroon wrappers for there cigars? The regular Fuente Gran Reserva line uses Cameroon wrappers also on their natural wrapped cigars. Just the Don Carlos have high grade Cameroon wrappers.
