Fonseca steps it up once again.
Fonseca Cubano Exclusivo was crafted for one, sole mission. To provide an amplified Fonseca experience, while maintaining renowned Fonseca smoothness. The good news to report is, it was a success. This medium to full-bodied blend starts with a rare Dominican Habano Vuelta Arriba sun-grown wrapper (phew that's a mouthful). Tucked just beneath this exclusive leaf awaits a bevy of robust Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers. The end result is a cigar that touches nicely on both strength and flavor. Notes of cedar, toasty tobacco, spices, and a light pepper influence round out this medium to full-bodied handmade. It's definitely a beefier cigar compared to traditional Fonseca offerings, but does so with just enough finesse to keep you interested throughout. Manuel Quesada knows how to make a fine cigar, and the Cubano Exclusivo further solidifies his resume.
Great news! Fonseca Cubano Exclusivo earned an impressive 91-rating, noting: "The smoke is rich and nutty with a cocoa sweetness that overlaps subtly spicy ground red pepper notes and a hint of cedar."
