Review Notes: Once again, I am following some reviews giving fair to poor reports about a cigar. Once again, I will remind the readers of my reviews that I have a large cigar collection, and have the means to extensively age my stash. I did not like this Fuente 858 when I smoked one fresh out of the box some seven years ago. Now, I am thoroughly enjoying this medium body, creamy and tasty treat. Good construction, slightly uneven burn (but not enough to cause a problem,) effortless draw. Very pretty. Shiny chestnut brown wrapper, with some thin veins. A very nice, silky and leathery texture of smoke. Delicious and complex flavors. Toasty bread overtones, with subtle hints of many flavors. I am detecting some coffee and nuts, perhaps some fruit. So, I will venture a guess ... perhaps Fuente boxes these 858's without proper aging time? Anyway, I almost traded these away, but I was advised by fellow cigar smokers to hold onto them, and I just may be in for a surprise. I am very glad I took the advice. This Fuente is excellent.
