Cigar Of The Day - Arturo Fuente Anejo

in cigars •  7 months ago

Good evening Steemians, tonight I chose a Arturo Fuente Anejo 49, in the longest vitola they offer, about 7.5 inches. The Fuente Anejo is only released 2 times a year, around Thanksgiving for the holidays, and most of the time again at Fathers Day. The Cognac barrel aged wrapper adds such a nice black cherry and rich flavor to an almost OpusX blend.


Blend Specifics:

Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Dominican
Filler: Dominican
Vitola: 7 5/8 x 49

Cloudy smoke, but smooth and flavor packed. The Anejo has always been a consistent cigar, with the same experience each time. Amazing sweet caramel, cashews, chocolate, salt, and spice, all well balanced with an espresso finish.


This Anejo is a full flavored, and full bodied, however it will not knock you on your backside with tobacco strength.


I don't normally pair food with cigars, although I feel it is a lost experience these days... but left-over New York roast is perfect with the Anejo.


Apparently the dogs are into it as well.

Overall, the Fuente Anejo 49 is a lovely cigar. The flavor profile is scrumptious, the smoke cloudy and creamy. They are on the expensive side of cigar prices at around $15, and worth every penny. This being said, I would recommend choosing from any of the other vitolas, the construction will be perfect, they are easier to find, and the price slightly less.

Cheers Steemians!

hi Greg...arturo fuente!!!....what a brand!!!...i have tried some sticks but not the one you are reviewing ...i can see though that its a full-bodied cigar... let me ask say of course that it will not knock you down but can you please give me a clue on the experience on the 3rd third of the stick??....i mean i don't like to start sweating or feeling disturbances on my stomach ( i think you know what i mean) ...if that's the case i'd rather stay away!!!


Hey Funnel.., It is a stronger cigar, but the tobacco is aged plenty , I don't notice any nicotine affect anytime smoking the Anejo. I would however recommend a smaller size Anejo, like the robusto, or the thin ring 888.

Smoke slow and have some type of food and/or sugar involved while smoking. That should help with any high nicotine content. You can always smoke a cigar like this you are unsure of, very slow, even if you find yourself relighting a few times. I think you will enjoy it!

I'm intrigued by the description. Until my crypto regains lost ground, I'm going to stick to my $7.50 Padrons. :-)


I'm with you Seablue.... My daily smoke is the Padron Churchill, I usually can find them for $6 a piece. This one was a birthday present. Have a good one!

That's the best to enjoy the rest ; )
