More info about purchasing Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 cigars...
8/5/8 is a dark beauty. With a soft and pleasant flavor, the Fuente is more than satisfying.
With a dark and grooved wrapper, 8/5/8 is perfectly filled - no soft spots were found.
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.
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.
Could probably be less expensive :)
Overall Rating :
I found this cigar a little monotonous, although it was a pretty good experience overall.
