Review Notes: Gran Reserva is a good smoke, and for the price, itís a good value too. This is my choice for a sub $4 stick; The flavor was a good combo of earth and cedar, and it was smooth and mellow through to the end. The bunch was a little loose, and burned hot, making lots of thick smoke. The cigar had a problem with tunneling, but that was likely due to a defect in the wrapper. The cedar sheath this stick was wrapped in concealed a gaping hole (punctured, not torn) near the ring, that passed through the wrapper and binder, and left the bunch clearly visible. I always check for defects at the cigar store, but the cedar wrap of this cigar obscured the defect until I got it home. Iíve never had a problem before or since with quality control from Arturo Fuente, so I chalked this one up to an anomaly.
