Casa Fuente churchill

Somewhere back in 2008, a friend send me this much talked about and hard to get Casa Fuente Churchill, which you can only get at Casa Fuente, a cigar shop in the Colloseum mall in Ceasar’s Palace, Las Vegas. I loved it and when I finally got to Las Vegas in june 2009 I smoked at least one a day and brought a sampler with all seven vitolas home. I smoked thedouble robusto from the sampler and decided to revisit the 7×48 Churchill today.

The packaging is top notch, the sampler box looks great but the way the individual cigars are packed it great too. The cigars have a protective cloth band around the foot, for the Casa Fuente cigars the cloth is orange of color and there is a golden print ‘Casa Fuente’ on the cellophane. The cigar has a nice color, a bit mocha and the wrapper is silky too, but with lots of veins, water spots and the surface is bumpy. I expect more from Fuente and especially from an expensive, high end cigar. The smell is unique, I smell an aroma of sweet and dry autumn leaves. The construction is good, just like the predraw. I taste dry tobacco.

First thing I taste is a full but dry wood flavor and after half an inch I also taste some herbs and nuts. After an inch the structure of the flavors is a bit creamy, maybe even buttery. The flavors are mainly cedar wood with some walnut. The creaminess and the herbs fade away. After that there isn’t much going on until I hit the two thirds mark.

After two thirds I taste some herbs again, but the cedar continues to be the main flavor. There is also a little sweetness in the flavors. But then the nut flavor becomes the dominant flavor with a hint of chocolate, but the chocolate changes into leather and the flavors become mild spicy. The last few puffs give me a spicy leather flavor.

This Casa Fuente churchill almost lasted me for two hours. I got a lot of thick white smoke. The draw and burn are good. The peper and salt colored ash is compact and firm. This cigar is full flavored and medium bodied.

Would I buy this cigar again? Another sampler will be bought if I ever get back to Las Vegas.
