Let's go on with this beautiful Toro. The Double Chateau is a delicious medium-bodied smoke that will provide you with pleasurable after-dinner 90 minutes.
Double Chateau Fuente come in a cedar sleeve. I don't know whether it adds anything to the flavor, but it sure looks good. Inside, you find a beautiful vitola that has the Fuente brand appearance (you noticed that I liked Fuente appearance, didn't you?).
Very neat and clean wrapper with a carefully applied cap. There were a few veins standing out which didn't affect overall quality. Easy lighting and draw, the burn was just as good, unlike the Churchills.
The first third can often turn out to be disappointing, but keep smoking. The flavors will get more complex and you'll be experiencing an interesting bouquet of spice and wood scents, along with hints of vanilla and cocoa. In the last third, it gets stronger but no less flavorful and enjoyable.
Possibly one of the best bargains for medium-bodied mild cigars out there.
Overall Rating :
Enjoyable for the novice and for the experienced smokers. Prepare some place in your humidor for these. I am a big Fuente fan and this is another great one.
