We’ve just hit September, and we are kicking off the month here at Puff.com with cigar reviews of the Arturo Fuente King T Rosado Sun Grown and the Leccia Tobacco Black.

Arturo Fuente King T Rosado Sun Grown

I don’t think I need to give much of an introduction to the Arturo Fuente brand.  After all, it’s one of the most respected names in the industry and has been around for over 100 years.  So, with that being said, what’s the word on the King T Rosado Sun Grown?  It was initially released last year and was debuted during the 2012 IPCPR show.  While its original release was limited, it eventually became a regular production cigar, which is certainly good news for Fuente fans.  Before I begin breaking down the King T, it’s worth noting that it is supposedly one of the strongest offerings from Fuente.  Will that make it too strong for beginners?  Let’s light one up and see.

The Fuente King T Rosado Sun Grown comes in a Churchill format that measures 7 x 49.  It has a filler and binder both made up of Dominican tobaccos, while the highlight comes in the form of its Ecuadorian Sun Grown Rosado wrapper from which it gets its name.  After doing a bit of research, it seems as if this Sun Grown wrapper came about by mistake.  The King T was supposed to have a Connecticut Shade wrapper, but some of the factory workers accidentally put the Sun Grown leaf instead.  After testing this “mistake,” the folks at Fuente decided to roll with it and make it an official release. 

Before looking at the King T Rosado Sun Grown, I have to hand it to Fuente for the packaging.  The cigar comes in beautiful white and black tubes that feature plenty of attention to detail.  As for the cigar itself, it has an attractive wrapper that is smooth and has a chocolate brown color with a bit of a reddish tint.  I notice some oil on the wrapper and a few very minor veins here and there.  The cigar is firm to the touch and has some nice weight to it.  The band near the head has a clean and classy look thanks to its red, gold, and green color scheme, although the green seems a bit out of place.  The band features the Fuente name and traditional logo.  There’s also a simple red band at the foot for added aesthetic appeal.  Before lighting, the Rosado Sun Grown exhibits a spicy aroma and a sweet flavor.

The Arturo Fuente King T Rosado Sun Grown certainly passed the initial appearance inspection, and it continues to impress with its burn.  The cigar lights with ease and has a perfect draw.  Thick smoke disburses from the King T and the burn stays even from beginning to end without the need for any touch-ups.  Re-lights are also unnecessary.  The gray ash is solid, and smoking time is about two hours total.
