Denoted by the black-trim band, the Sun Grown by Arturo Fuente combines the Gran Reserva's popular binder and filler tobaccos with a dark Ecuadorian-grown sun-grown wrapper leaf. This recipe cooks up a slight, natural sweetness complemented by a medium-bodied richness that's smooth and balanced. A consistent, well-made handmade from the Dominican Republic.
The Sun Grown AF is one of the best values in cigars. It is the valued "Black Ring" AF, just like the Hemingways and Don Carlos cigars, but is about 30-40% less. It has that great AF flavor with leather and toast. It is also more full bodied than the Don Carlos line, pushing the medium to full portion of the strength spectrum. The toro is a great size for a comfortable tasty hour with a cigar

Used to smoke these a few years back. haven't had one for a while and decided to give them another shot. My taste buds may have changed, but the taste was "off" and would never have guessed these were the Chateau SG's I used to smoke. No plans to revisit them anytime soon.

Just a nice long lasting cigar. Even burning. Can't miss with Fuente.
