A. Fuente & Co. Magnum R
There was a silky smooth pale brown wrapper covering this cigar. It had a bright pre-light nose that was rich with sweet raisin-like notes that carried over to the dry draw taste. The same pre-light flavors were detected in the smoke as soon as the cigar was lit. The flavor continued to develop revealing a nutty characteristic with a rich, sweet tobacco note. The cigar was solid as a rock and had a perfect draw, just like a straw. The burn was slow and even with a light gray, dense ash that had to be pulled off of the cigar. It had mild white peppery spices and a big, luring aroma. There was a mild body to start, with a slow build to medium, with full flavors and smoke that had a mouthwatering texture. With near flawless construction this cigar practically smoked itself. Outstanding through and through, this is a distinct cigar with great flavor and a rich personality.
