What does Arturo Fuente say about the cigar?
|The Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King B was named after Arturo Fuente’s treasured 1950’s Ybor City tavern, the Fuente Chateau Fuente King B is mixed with some of the most glorious Dominican long-fillers ever composed with a profound Ecuadoran Rosado wrapper. The Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King B has smokey flavors of coffee, leather, and spice.|
What do I say about the cigar?
Initial Light / First Third: On the dry draw I got lots of fruit, mixed with cedar and cocoa. Lighting the cigar with the cedar on it was interesting, I didn’t get much of light until I used the torch. On the initial light the flavor was dominated by cedar.
Once into the first third lots of spice and cedar. This cigar needs to be smoked slowly to allow for the full flavors of coffee, cocoa, and leather. Construction was great, burn was good, a bit uneven in the beginning but evened itself out nicely. The ash is nearly white and just a bit flakey.
Second Third: The spice has mellowed, moves into a great leather flavor with cocoa on the finish. Burn is still fantastic, the cap is still intact, no issues with canoeing, tunneling, or mouse holes.
Final Third: Spice up front, with leather, old wood (in a good way). Burn and construction are great.
Final Thoughts: I love this cigar, but this cigar demands to be smoked slowly to get the full flavor. Construction was fantastic, no issues with the burn, the cap, no tarring. I will be buying a box soon.
