If you’re an avid cigar smoker, what do you think of when you hear the name Fuente? Hopefully you envision a name brand that is world-renowned for their outstanding tobacco which is always perfectly balanced, rich in flavor, impeccably constructed using the most outstanding tobacco leaves available, such as with the Arturo Fuente Maduro blend that we review here.

They use predominantly Cameroon wrappers, but for their maduro blends they use the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. If you have never tasted the Arturo Fuente Maduro line you are definitely missing out! Each of the A. Fuente Maduro cigars are individually wrapped in the signature cedar sleeves and are distinguished with a bright green ribbon/band at the foot of each cigar. The Arturo Fuente Maduros start off with a looser draw but they do even out after a few minutes into it.
Pleasant in appearance with its rich, dark, slightly veiny wrapper, the A. Fuente Maduro is a medium-bodied stogie which aims to please. It produces a billowy, thick smoke and coats your palate with a rich chocolatey aftertaste. As you work your way through the second half of the Arturo Fuente Maduro blend you might run into a hint of spice and a slight tingle on the back of your tongue, a creamier and longer finish and more flavors coming forth such as walnuts, vanilla and a charred wood undertone, but always smooth and buttery.
The A. Fuente Maduro is pure elegance, equally in its aesthetics as well as in its construction and flavor. Don’t miss out, pick up a few sticks this weekend, kick back with a buddy and delve into a heavenly, rich-tasting, meaty and well-made maduro cigar.
