8/5/8 is a dark beauty. With a soft and pleasant flavor, the Fuente is more than satisfying.

Appearance : ★★★★½
With a dark and grooved wrapper, 8/5/8 is perfectly filled - no soft spots were found.
Construction : ★★★★½
The draw was OK, I also noticed good burning qualities. Unlit, there was a light smell of humus. Rich clouds of soft smoke when I lit it up.

Flavor : ★★★★½
A little bitter in the beginning, the Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 rapidly develops mocha notes, which become richer and richer along with some woody hints, especially in the second third. These were the only flavors that I noticed, the bitterness reappears in the last third.

Value : ★★★★☆
Could probably be less expensive :)

Overall Rating : ★★★★½
I found this cigar a little monotonous, although it was a pretty good experience overall.

    Enjoyed a couple of those when I was on holidays in the Dominican Republic. That’s the most famous Dominican brand, that’s for sure.

  2. I just LOVE this brand. Will probably send you a few reviews soon.

  3. This is a good consistent cigar. This is one of the few fuente cigars that I prefer the maduro variety.

  4. The maduro is best. When I walk into one of my local cigar shops chances are I’m walking out with one of these.

  5. this is my favorite of the normal Arturo Fuente line.

  6. Fuente is a well made smoke and do enjoy one every once in a while

    These are a decent smoke, and one I like to bring to a herf if only to have something mild, but tasty, for a newbie. They’re a much cheaper starter cigar than Macanudo.

    I also keep a small humi at the office for lunchtime getaways. I don’t keep anything that I’d cry over if they disappeared, so the Flor Fina and Chateau maddies frequently end up at the office.

    I loved those cigars long time ago… I’ll recomend it for beginners. But my palate have become more complex, and usually dont enjoy them so much. I recomend to try the 858 sun grown and maduro too.

  9. This is a great cigar and every time I read a review about them I get the idea of getting a box of them and can’t find them at the price I want. Sounds like a life long problem,,so many deals so little time.

  10. I really like the maduro .

  11. Man, i just tried one of these about an hour ago and it tasted like dirt, literally. about the worst cigar I’ve had to date. Not sure if i need to dry box it and let it age a while but after this experience I wouldn’t smoke one if it was given to me for free.
