Review Notes: I bought three since this was my first time smoking the Chateau. I usually smoke its bigger brother which is, in my opinion, still double the cigar. I bought all three in a store that wasn't so dedicated to its product's proper preservation, and in their newly purchased state, the Chateaus were pretty dry. I placed them in the humidor for a few days to let them settle and consumed the first one still just a bit prematurely. I have always been a fan of Arturo Fuente's consistency and so, though the first was not terrible at all, the second and third were much more of what I expected in what this company has to offer (everyone knows even the best cigars taste even better after being nurtured in a humidor for at least a short time). The second and third proved to be the same in performance: pleasant appearance with careful attention to construction; good draw; not the most even burn; able, smooth taste with complexity on par or a little better than another cigar at this price; pleasant, lingering aftertaste; proved to be a better and better smoke closing in on the band. I agree with a few of the reviews that the beginning 1/3 left something to be desired, but I didn't let go of it and was rewarded accordingly. Perhaps I was too eager and therefore smoked the first 1/3 too quickly, but it is still in my opinion that the buyer is purchasing about 2 inches of mediocrity. It proved its worth about halfway through when I started to really appreciate it. Overall, I have smoked better Fuente's and it is not a Hemmingway, but for $3.50 it is a good smoke. It is a cigar I will light up when I want something decent but reasonably priced. I will also be sure to let it sit in the humidor as long as my patience will allow.

Review Notes: I got about halfway through this cigar before I pitched it into the toilet where it belonged and lit up a Camacho. Stale flavor, lousy burn, rubbery aftertaste.

"Grossly overrated"

Review Notes: I'm joining the camp that thinks the A. Fuente hype is completely undeserved. I found this cigar unrefined--a basic tobacco taste without the sun-grown goodness you can find in other cigars.

Review Notes: Arturo Fuente's never seem to let me down. This little guy has alot of spice. Nice smooth draw, but the flavor was somewhat one dimensional. Burn was clean and even. Nice smoke. Nice for an everyday economical smoke.
