Arturo Fuente Forbidden X 13 Belicoso Cigar Review – This 5.5×52 stick features a firmly packed oily wrapper with a dark chocolate slightly red hued tone, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, slight tooth and mild sweet cocoa aroma. First light reveals a complex medium-full bodied smoke with a perfect draw and notes of a slight caramel sweetness, dark roasted nuts and cocoa, deep natural tobacco all on a long smooth syrupy finish. The first third burns perfectly changing the flavors to a slick sweet creamy leather with a touch of cocoa on the finish. The smoke is on the thick side and very smooth. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 45 minutes flavors were the same with the addition of a strong but smooth black pepper on the draw and finish. The ash was still holding strong. Ending at 1:15 where it got very hot, the band took off a huge wrapper chunk and flavors shifted to a warn nuttiness, sweet earth and the pepper died down.
