Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva Rothschild Natural Cigar Review

This 4.5×50 stick features an ashy dark brown mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, light firm construction, slight oil sheen and rich sweet wood aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful smoke production showing medium bodied flavors of a thick, oily sweet wood with a chewy but short finish. The first third goes fairly quickly showing no changes. Finally 25 minutes in 1/2 way through it brings a shift to a spicy sweet earth on the draw while the finish gets a deep pepper and grows longer. Ending at 45 minutes the last 1/2 stayed consistent and burned perfectly holding at a medium body with no strength.

    always top notch cigars.some of the first cigars I smoked,and always find myself going back to them when I am in the store and cant figure out which cigar to buy.there so many to pick from and you can pick up a few without breaking the bank..

    One of my friends got me this cigar in a bigger size…I believe it was a Churchill, and I enjoyed it a lot. I agree they are sort of middle of the road, but very consistent and enjoyable cigars!

    I actually just had this cigar and I must say it was very enjoyable

  • MaxDuo

    Sounds like a good cigar to enjoy with some friends when maybe having a drink or two.

    I just recently had one of these sticks. And I agree it’s not great for the intent of sitting down with a good cup of coffee and giving your time to enjoy the complexities of a cigar. It is a really good backyard cigar. for those days when your just tooling around the yard doing odds and ends chores. You don’t want to smoke an opus x while your bundling sticks or mowing the lawn.

    Nice review, I love most fuentes.

  • Pokesfan

    Sounds like a nice, simple smoke you don’t have to put much thought into.

    I have one A.F in my humidor. and after watching this review and others on this site , I cant wait to smoke my cigar. Great review.

    I have had these in the Petite Corona size and I got the peppery flavor pretty much all the way through, from first light to the nub. I put this one on my ‘Buy Some More’ list. Might change with a larger RG. Will have to experiment.

    Great review as always, Bryan. My humidor is filled with the 858 Maduros. I’m going to give this cigar a try.
