    I’m sorry to here about your experience. I’ve only had 2 of these, but they both have good construction and flavor. They did have a bit of age on them though.

    I couldn’t disagree with you more on these. I’m by no means a Fuente fanboy, but these are some of the best cigars they make, especially for under $7 a stick (box price). I’ve only had one out of a couple dozen that had any kind of construction problem. Sorry you had a bad experience, but I’d suggest to anyone to try these.

    Interesting. The varied reviews I have seen here and a few other places usually have construction as their turning point. Seems like it may be a bit hit or miss. I have had each end of the scale from fuente and you really do get what you pay for in my experience.

    Well, a King B is gonna cost me about $10, locally, so I’m still on the fence about it. Maybe if I get a nice slice of overtime, and feel like splurging. It sounds good..

    The one I smoked last night was about 2 years old (give or take) and it was fantastic for the first 2/3rds. The last third became unusually harsh. The burn was a problem the entire cigar. Had to touch up three times. But, I really enjoied it.

    I smoked my first AF Sun Grown Cuban Belicoso the other night. It might be the best cigar I’ve ever smoked, including a Cuban Romeo y Julieta.

    I completely agree with your review. I have a box, purchased in October 2008 from which I have taken four to smoke from my humidor over the last three years. They have been so nasty, that I have moved them to my “give away” section in my humidor. I don’t want to smoke any more. Very harsh and not a good flavor profile at all. Sorry AF, this was a bust.

    After a couple I think there may be some inconsistency regarding the rolling to where the burn isn’t straight, however it was pretty decent tasting both times. It did not have as much character (i.e. milder) than the regular Padron and Padron ’64’s I’m so fond of. The box, the gold printed A-F King B on the cello, and the cedar sleeve w/ usual A-F band (kind of like seeing the Cadillac emblem if you know what I mean) does tend to make expectations high. I have enjoyed the A-F Sungrowns I’ve tried in the past, likely more than the “King B”. I don’t know if they are radically different blends, but I’m going to say this is a fair stick yet no bargain, but try the Double Chateau Sungrown or The Cuban Belicoso instead as, IMHO, these bring the King here down to a mere Prince.
