Looking at the Arturo Fuente Magnum R 52, I can tell it's another well-built cigar from the brand. The wrapper has a nice red tinge to it and appears to be smooth. A few fine veins are noticeable, but that is it. The R 52 feels firm to the touch with zero soft spots. The red, gold, and white band near the head looks great and displays the Fuente logo, name, and Rosado Gran Reserva label. Before lighting, I notice a cold taste that is sweet and there's an aroma of cedar.

After lighting, the Magnum R 52 performs like a Fuente cigar should. The draw is perfect and produces plenty of smoke. There's some solid white ash as well. Only one touch-up is needed. Other than that, it's maintenance-free.

Fuente promised a smooth cigar that still had plenty of flavor. Was that all marketing, or is it actually true. Luckily, the Magnum R 52 does have plenty of flavor. The flavor kicks off in the first third with cedar and nuts. The second third offers some sweetness and leather. The final third returns with cedar, and it also introduces a bit of pepper. I'd say that medium-bodied definitely fits this cigar to a T.

Well, it looks like Fuente produced another hit with the Rosado Sungrown Magnum R 52. The cigar had good looks, a good burn, and good flavor. Its mild nature will probably not appeal to fans of powerful smokes, but those seeking a departure from boldness or even beginners will probably enjoy the Magnum R line. A single sells for around $6 to $7, which is very reasonable. It also can be found in boxes of 25.

The Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown Magnum R 52 earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

I love the Hemingways and assumed that Don Carlos would be an even better cigar since they cost more.So I was a bit let down when I tried them and they didn't live up. I like the oilly wrapper and the sweet taste of the Hemingways and think there a better choice for the money.The Don Carlos is still a very good cigar and I purchase them when there available for a good price. Please let me know if I'm missing something.

Fuente Fan

Also,I forgot to mention yesterday that it should have some kind of distinguishing band so it doesn't look just like a regular Fuente.

I am not new to cigar smoking, but am new to cigar enjoyment. Recently I started reading reviews to understand what I am smoking and i am a bit perplexed by a couple of things. Veins in the wrapper are often mentioned. Is that important to the taste or is is merely esthetic? Also, the length of the ash, same thing?
