Arturo Fuente Epicure belongs to the Classic line (the band border is green). It is, according to my research, the European version of the Rothschild, a 4 1/2 x 50 short robusto. Don't ask me why they wanted to change the name, perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the MSRP of the Epicure is approximately twice higher than the Rothschild. I will naively keep on thinking that the reasons of the price difference are high taxes and transportation costs - on to the review!

This is my 1st tasting of an Arturo Fuente King B. I have heard many mixed reviews about this cigar, ranging from very good to very bad, so I didn't really know what to expect from it. There is a fair amount of hype surrounding this cigar and it can be difficult to find. At retail, the price seemed reasonable at $6.75, so I figured I would give it a try.

I provided a bit of background on the Don Carlos line of cigars when I reviewed the Don Carlos #4. Rather than rehash all that here I am just going to cut to the chase today and provide you this link to go back and read the review of the #4 if you are interested. Now on to the good part, smoking the Presidente

The wrapper on this cigar is veiny and a splotchy brown. This is unusual for a Don Carlos. They usually have very few viens and the color is usually very smooth and uniform. The rustic appearance had no adverse effects on the smoke though. It was mellow and smooth, the flavors were creamy and refined. It was slightly sweet, typical of a good Cameroon. I found this one to be a little one dimensional compared to the smaller No. 4, but the flavor was so good it was still a very enjoyable smoke. As is always the case with the Don Carlos, the construction was perfection. the burn was razor sharp and the smoke was thick and creamy. These cigars never disappoint.

Today I am smoking one of the elusive Opus X from the Fuente Family. The Opus X line of cigars has garnered a lot of accolades since its introduction in 1995. Opus X cigars routinely score in the 90′s in Cigar Aficiando and Cigar Insider. That combined with some aggressive marketing and limited supply has led to a whole lot of hype surrounding this scarce stogie. They sport a Dominican grown, reddish brown, Rosado wrapper which in the case of the petit lancero is a little veiny and lumpy. The wrapper for these Dominican Puros is grown on the Chateau de la Fuente Estate in the DR and is reported to be cured in rum barrels. Once the cigars are rolled, they are aged for a year before being sent to market.

The Hemingway line of cigars from the Fuente Family has a reputation of excellence. Along with that success, it also carries a reputation of being hard to find. I provided a bit of background on the Hemingway cigars in my review of the Best Seller so rather than rehash all of that here I will just dive right into this cigar.

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.
