Cigar Of The Day - Arturo Fuente Spanish Longsdale

in cigars •  6 months ago

This Cameroon wrapped gem is the reason I fell in love with cigars, although it was the Flor Fina size as my first real hand rolled premium cigar, over 7 years ago. I have found the Spanish longsdale size is my favorite for a standard Fuente.

The first few puffs provide A great amount of smoke with some nice nuances of cream and a little citrus type sweetness.

After the cigar gets a chance to warm up you get some very nice mellow flavors of dark cedar, cashew, a little bit of cocoa, and some dark cherry notes. There is very little spice. The construction is on point, the burn is razor sharp and will produce a long ash.

The standard line of Fuente tend to be loosely rolled, so it's advisable to not smoke them too fast or they can get hot and bitter.

The Arturo Fuente Spanish Longsdale, or any of the baseline sizes, is the perfect cigar for beginners, it is mild, not too complex, and not expensive.

That is a long cigar!

Your suggestion of pairing with an Iced Latte, makes me think I might drop through Starbuck's after the cigar store. An Iced Latte in the sunshine while smoking my cigar sounds awesome.

The fact that the lawn got mowed yesterday will add to the pleasure of the moment too. No more dandelions.

You know it! I need to repeat that process again today.

...but I do need to mow my lawn.., I suck at keeping it nice, so I finally got a basic yard service that sprays weed killer and grass fertilizer, now I am going to have to mow it all the time instead of letting it turn brown, LOL

very suitable to enjoy a relaxing time with a suck cerutu

Awesome! Glad I just came across your blog :)

Perfect to make the day amazing thanks for sharing
