Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King T

You have to hand it to Arturo Fuente, they don’t make much tubos but when they do, it is something spectacular, like this Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente King T, a 7×49 churchill with a Dominican filler and binder with a Connecticut shade wrapper.

The wrapper is light brown and oily with a few veins. The cigar has a piece of red band on the foot to protect it. The construction feels good and the cigar has a mild wood smell. The predraw is good.

I taste dry wood, mild spicy and after a quarter of an inch I taste a little bit of chocolate on the background. After two inch I get a little more chocolate with some herbs. The flavors are dry and a bit musty, which I get a lot from Connecticut wrappers.

Halfway I still taste wood with herbs. The chocolate is hardly recognizable and the musty taste has gone. The flavors no longer change until I reach the end, only the wood gets a bit stronger.

This cigar has a smoke time of an hour and fortyfive minutes. The draw was good. The light colored ash is reasonable firm. I had to correct the burn a few times. The smoke is thin. This cigar is medium bodied and medium flavored.

Would I buy this cigar again? Meh, Connecticut wrappers don’t do it for me.
