As promised a review of Arturo Fuente Churchill. Let me say that this is not my favorite stick from this brand, but that’s the one I smoked recently, so my memory is still fresh. A good average cigar with a very satisfying price/quality relationship.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
I love the band and I love the wrapper’s shiny, oily and rather dark appearance. That’s the Fuente style!

Construction : Rating: ★★★☆☆
I must admit that this is not the strongest point of this Churchill. I’ve smoked quite a few of those and sometimes I observed construction problems – sometimes, the wrapper peels off and the burn gets uneven in the end. However, the draw is usually fine.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★½☆
That’s a good everyday smoke, with consistent flavors of wood, leather and spice. The beginning is very light, the smoke is pleasant and soft. The flavors get more powerful in the second third, especially the spicy part – now, if the cigar is well constructed, it feels like a real high quality stick. The finish is smooth, nothing really special.

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
Provides a good price-quality relationship. I suggest you look for special deals/offers in online shops and when you see an opportunity, get a box!

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Arturo Fuente Churchill can be a good everyday, anytime smoke. Chances are you’ll enjoy a nice and pleasant cigar.

    I have to agree that the actual smoke is not bad, but not exceptional, but you must admit that the package is absolutely awesome.

  2. I have had a few of these years ago and a good dependable smoke that I liked

  3. Thanks for the review! I’ll have to get a few to try out.

  4. I started my cigar smoking journey in the mid-1980s when these cost a buck a piece, $25 for a box of 25. They were a great cigar to enjoy in the office or after work with a whisky. I don’t smoke them as much anymore but always enjoy them when I run across them highly recommend.
