Review Notes: I'm a big Fuente fan. Hemingway's and OpusX's are my favorites, though I have been trying some of their other blends lately. I smoked two of these and will say that they are milder than a Hemingway. To be more specific, the Hemingway is spicier, stronger, and a little "edgier" when compared to this Don Carlos. I would say that this is medium-bodied, with a light creamy sweetness, accompanied by floral notes. I'm not a fan of the floral taste, though I could tolerate these once in a great while. The draw was really tight. Sometimes I felt like I had to draw fairly hard to get enough smoke. Despite that, the burn was excellent and required only a couple minor course corrections. If you like the flavor I just described, I'm sure you'll enjoy a Don Carlos. Personally, I'm sticking to the stronger blends.
