Arturo Fuente Cuban Corona is a decent cigar for the average cigar smoker, not too strong, not too lite, with just enough character to make it stand out among the other Arturo Fuente products.
Appearance : Rating:
Though there is a lot to be said for this particular cigar, I don’t know that appearance is one of those. It’s not so much an ugly cigar, nor is it all that attractive. It lacks in character at this aspect. It’s just kind of basic.
Construction : Rating:
Though not the handsomest cigar I have had the opportunity to smoke, it is built very well. It had a perfect burn in the three that I have tried. Each one also had a good draw, not too tight but not too loose. Excellent construction.
Flavor : Rating:
This is the aspect of this cigar that makes it well worth it. I’ve always been a fan of the sweeter smokes, and this one heads the catagory. The first few hits were obviously teasers, giving just a hint of the sweet ripeness and cinnamon wood spice that I do so love. The second third was big extravaganza! Sweet as could be and a perfect spicey burn. In the final third, particularly towards the very end, the wood became way more obvious, but so delicious. A very very good smoke, particularly for the price.
Value : Rating:
Just in the flavor alone, you are getting far more than you are paying for in these wonderful sticks.
Overall Rating : Overall Rating:
If Arturo Fuente would work on the appearance, I have no doubt that these would be some very high-dollar and in demand smokes. The price is ridiculously cheap for such an amazing and memorable flavor.
