Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Double Robusto Cigar Review

Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Double Robusto Cigar Review – This 5.75×52 stick features a dark brown softly packed satin wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double ca and faint manure aroma.  First light reveals a perfect draw with thick chewy medium-full bodied smoke showing a naturally sweet tobacco and slight mustiness on a short finish.  The first third burns perfectly but with a short ash, coming down to a medium body.  Flavors shift to a sweet musty tobacco, light wood and touch of pepper on the tail end of the long smooth finish.  The 1/2 way point comes at 30 minutes just shifting the sweetness to a subtle dried fruit that lasts through the finish.  Ending 50 minutes in at the hot nub, flavors shift again to a smooth creamy nuttiness with just a touch of the sweetness lingering. And no, that’s not mold before anyone says it.  It’s just pectin residue from a handler. Use code COFANS12 to save 12% https://cigarandpipes.com/product/arturo-fuente-don-carlos/

      My wife and I recently sold our parents home in NPR just off 19 near the Home Depot.. We live in the PNW and it was a difficult decision to not move to FL. Doubly hurt now that I know B.G. lives somewhere just down the road. I remember finding a very humble B&M and lounge ina the back nestled in an older strip mall. a few miles from there. I cant remember the name.

        plenty of B&M around here. Im always to busy to get to them. Yeah I think brian actually lives off the same street as me. I live off of grand blvd. Gonna have to visit him someday. Maybe next herf

          My you can bump into him at a cigar convention. They must have them occasionally. I have always imagined Tampa to be Cigar Mecca USA.
          There is no expression, “Hava a Miami”. Ybor City was always my first stop. My impression Is Brian is far too busy to receive impromptu house guests. I’d be tempted to plant a plastic flamingo with a cigar taped to its beak, out next to his driveway on Halloween. That would surely fix his wagon..

            7th street in ybor has boutiques and JP newman has a cigar factory in tampa. Lots of cigar bars for sure. I dont think it was what it used to be but still cool for smokers. I would think bryan would not be taking impromptu house guests also but what he does is has a herf at his house every now and again. Ive never been able to attend due to schedule but gonna make the next one for sure.

            Yah, I ‘d never seriously entertain showing up or invite myself to..anyone, anywhere. I’ll google “herf” since I don’t know what one is other than possibly “brief backyard cigar party”. The reviews are so good its like being there. At times when I cant smoke or am not up for the nicotine price-tag I have to pay, i just watch the reviews for an hour and fifteen.

    When is your next herf anyway bryan?
