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.
