Review Notes: Nice flavor, good aroma, way too tight for my taste--maybe this will clear up with some aging. Seems to be overrated from what I hear about this cigar but maybe I just havent tried enough to appreciate it fully. As always, superb construction, nice pleasant, floral flavors.

Review Notes: construction was nice. A few veins. Nothing really special. a natural tan and no visible blemishes. Spongey and springy it had a good feel. Quick snip and had a Slightly tight draw. Maybe too used to robusto sized. very familiar mild taste. Slightly uneven light. Sweet and mild with a short subtle tobacco and coffee finishes. A bit rough on the palette. After an inch the sweet and cofee flavors were replaced by cedar and was definitely stronger, maybe mild-medium. Burn evened out if left alone. The smoke sort of smoothens out into a creamy toasty taste with a hint of bitterness when i smoke too quickly. Ash held for about an inch with a grey-white color. I am totally enjoying this cigar. Draw got tighter as it passed the halfway point and I was now fighting to get a good puff. fighting down to the band, and that was enough for me. overall, a tasty smoke. if I had one with a better draw, it would have been a finger burner.

Review Notes: I started smoking these ten years ago. Back then they were relatively unknown and you could get them for 2.00 per. Like any good cigar, their popularity increased and so did the price. Regardless, they remain well worth the price. Appearance, flavor, and construction are all top notch. Whenever I buy a cigar for a newbie, I always turn to this one, and they are never disappointed. Medium bodied and smooth, I recommend this wholeheartedly.

"Nice value from Fuente"

Review Notes: I have been a longtime fan of Hemingways and Don Carlos...OpusX, too. That said, this 858 is a solid mild to medium bodied smoke for those who like a lighter palate profile. Nice wrapper...good aroma...great construction and draw...tons of billowy smoke and a pleasant finish. It has that grassy, woodsy taste that Fuente is famous for...similar to a Hemingway, but it lacks that little sweet smack. Overall, nicely done...I enjoyed it with a few cold ones and it was perfect. I would expect more when I am sitting down with a glass of aged spirits and more in the moment...but for a casual smoke, you can't beat it.

"Cedar"

Review Notes: A good looking cigar. pre-light smells like cigar box. I agree with Weezy's previous entry. The prodominant flavor is woodsy- cedary to me. The most interesting fact about it was how pronounced it was in the stick that I had. IN the background it was a medium bodied smoke with really no other flavors I could distinguish. Good draw and burn.
