Arturo Fuente 858 Maduro Cigar Review

This 6×47 stick offers a dark chocolate almost black, lumpy toothy wrapper with small veins all over, a couple large ones, thick seams and a very nice slightly sweet chocolate aroma. First light reveals a firm draw, adaquate smoke production and flavors of a sweet tobacco with a rich and oily long finish. The first third develops in to a slightly musty aged tobacco taste with a oily and rich finish with a touch of caramel like sweetness. Smoke production is very good giving a thick and chewy medium-full body. The 2nd third proves very close to the first, bringing a hint of leather in at points. Ending at 1:15 the last third is pretty much the same, only adding a touch of dusty chocolate and a longer tobacco finish. Thank you very much to Jeremie Plouffe for sending me this sample for review, I really appreciate it!

    great review. That’s one of my go-to smokes. Funny thing, Jeremie gave me my 1st one also.

    Hey, Bryan

    I am glad you enjoyed it, it’s one of my go to cigar. I love them overall any Fuente. They get better and better with age.

    I like the 858 with the cameroon wrapper… now I definitely need to give one of these a try!

    I Love the sweet flavors of this cigar. I was watching this video as I was smoking one, and you nailed it when you said desert stick. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    This is in my top 3 cigars. Great great cigar. Good review. Just can’t go wrong with the 8-5-8.

    I was pretty unimpressed with this stick when i tried it. not saying it was bad-it wasnt- i just expected more

    This is my goto cigar. in fact i’m about to go smoke one now 🙂 This is the kind of cigar I like smoke after a meal. Its a nice way to end off a good BBQ

    I have had a few Fuente cigars but havent been a big fan, ill have to give this a try.

  • ctigers15

    Just had one and it was pretty similar to what you said, mine wasn’t as sweet though.

  • eric.hanson

    This is one of my friends favorite cigar. He gave me one last summer, it was good but wasn’t amazing. I thought it was pretty close to how you described it here, typical Fuente flavors and lots of sweetness.

  • zanlamb

    I haven’t had a Fuente before. But they all sound great. I think I will stock up when I’m in Florida. Any suggestions?

  • hoghead

    This one was enjoyable. Only smoked 4 so far but will purchase more.
