Thanks to some good friends over the years I have had the opportunity to wheel and deal my way to a slew of Fuente Opus X's from different vintages. Early in my smoking stage, I was curious to see the development of Dominican tobacco over several years of aging. What better stick to test the aging ability of Dominican tobacco than the brand most people consider the best Dominican out there?,... the Opus X brand. So I dipped into my humidor and pulled out the oldest Opus I could find. Now most seasoned cigar smokers know the great aging potential of Cuban cigars and Nicaraguans, but can the Dominicans hold their own too? We'll see,...

I was sitting at my computer when I realized that the date was February 29th, Leap Day, and I thought that I should have a cigar since my next chance to have one on a leap day would not be for another four years. I looked in my humidor and realized that I wasn’t in the mood for anything I currently have so I quickly ran down to my local tobacconist before closing time to choose out a leap day cigar. The cigar I chose was the Arturo Fuente Rothschild.

The Arturo Fuente Short Story Maduro is not your typical cigar. Originally, only 200 cigars were given out at the 1999 and 2002 Cigar Family Celebrations combined. Surprisingly, the Short Story Maduro was shown at the 2011 International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Convention (IPCPR) earlier this month. Keeping with tradition, Arturo Fuente is only releasing 1,000 boxes of the cigar to select retailers that purchased twenty or more boxes of Arturo Fuente cigars at the trade show.

My favorite 'cheap smoke' comes from one of the biggest names in the business, Arturo Fuente. Known for their uber-premium Opus X and Hemingway lines, it's nice to know that Arturo Fuente also makes quality cigars with a budget-friendly pricetag.

The cheap smoke that I really like is the Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente Maduro Rothschild. It's a mild to medium blend which has a nice cocoa flavor. At just under $4 a stick (when you buy a box), its a price that you just can't beat and a cigar you can afford to light up daily.

Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8

The Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8 has always been one of my favorite go-to cheap smokes, primarily because it tastes like a cigar at least twice its price! The cigar I smoked for this review was no exception, and hopefully this review communicates everything I love about this smoke.

Lately I haven’t been able to hangout at my local cigar shop or on the online cigar forums as much as I once was. Life happens and with a wife, a dog, and two small kids my free time is nearly non-existent. So I was very surprised when I walked into my local shop after being gone for a while to find these new Hemingways sitting in the humidor. I guess I have fallen a little out of touch. After letting them sit in my humidor for the past month I am ready to spark this thing up and see what we have here.

Mission Debrief

My sister-in-law came up to me a couple of weeks ago and told me her and her Mom were going to Las Vegas together. Being that my wife and I had spent our honeymoon there and I’ve been there on business a few times, she wanted to know where to go. Even though I knew she wasn’t a cigar smoker, I told her to visit the Casa Fuente club, located in the Forum Shops in Caesar’s Palace. “Have a mojito and enjoy yourself,” I said to her. While she was there, she called up and said that she was getting me a cigar from the club. And sure enough, when she returned home, I found a Casa Fuente bag waiting for me with a Casa Fuente House Cigar inside.

Many thanks to Austin from the 7th Street Reserve for taking these excellent pictures for my series of reviews.

Arturo Fuente has worldwide recognition as a producer of high quality cigars, and the subject of today’s review, the Arturo Fuente Rosado Gran Reserva is no exception.
The Gran Reserva is a limited release cigar, available only to special Fuente accounts, so consider yourself lucky if you spot one in a shop.
Even though I do not generally like mellow, mild blends, preferring a stronger, more robust flavor, I have to give the proper, due kudos to Arturo Fuente for the Rosado Gran Reserva, as it is an excellent cigar. Let’s see why and how.
