You couldn't ask for a better looking smoke. I suspected that this one might be an exceptional one, so I saved it for a special moment. I smoked it late in the afternoon as I set out on the shore of the Rhine River of Basel Switzerland. The Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 55 really helped to make that evening memorable.
A beautiful dark cigar, long and thick. The appearance is flawless.
Pretty decent construction on this one, though it looked just a very little bit lumpy. Had a good even burn though, all the way down.
It was love at first light. The initial third was all molasses, sweet as honey. The second third seemed to be sort of a transition phase, as I began to taste a woody, earthy flavor mixed with the molasses. It wasn't bad, just a bit of a strange mix. The final third leveled out at a nice slightly spicy wood taste.
The price is pretty good, particularly for the first and last third of the smoke.
Overall Rating :
The Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 55 is good for a late afternoon/evening smoke. I have to say that it is one of the better torpedos that I have had the honor of experiencing. Definitely a cigar for the experienced smoker.
