    My Review of the Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Belicoso

    So if you know me, you know that I am not a huge Fuente fan. I find them to be over hyped on average and overvalued. Unfortunately this Don Carlos Belicoso is no exception.

    I love Cameroon wrappers, and very few manufacturers do as much with Cameroons as the Fuentes. The funny thing is the only Cameroon that I like from them is the redonkulously priced Casa Fuente.

    This stubby torpedo has a beautifully dark and satiny Cameroon wrapper that does in fact make you mouth water. But the happiness for me ends at the appearance.

    As soon as I clip the cigar I note that the draw was tight and after lighting, the burn was uneven.

    This nice looking cigar’s flavors were muddled from the get go. I first got notes of oak and pepper, but there was a little bit of greenness to the cigar that made it seem like it’s fermentation was rushed.

    The flavors to me never developed, this was not good for the money. The finish was harsh and I had to fight the burn and draw the entire cigar.

    In conclusion, this cigar will not change my anti-Fuente ways, it only further confirms my stance.
