Arturo Fuente Spanish Lonsdale Maduro Cigar Review

This 6.5×42 stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with a lumpy firm pack, a couple small veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, an oily soft feel but with a good amount of tooth and a rich sweet tobacco and pepper aroma. First light reveals a big bitter coffee and wood, following through the finish with s smooth oily earth, still very bitter. Draw ans smoke production are very good. The first third presents a mix, keeping a tinge of the bitter wood while also delivering a naturally sweet tobacco however the sweetness does not last, leaving the bitterness through the finish. Construction is flawless with plumes of smooth smoke. The 1/2 way point comes at 25 minutes moving to a medium-full bodied very smooth creamy sweet tobacco with a long finish of the same. Ending out at 50 minutes the last bit burned to the nub with the same flavors and perfect construction.

    I don’t know my way around the Fuente brand. In fact, I just pulled out a Grande Reserva that I bought in a sampler. I guess it’s time to get acquainted.

    Bryan,

    Was this an example of a stick you had a few of prior to the one for the review? If so, was that bitterness in the first half consistent with the other ones you had?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    • I only had this one.
