A good daily cigar with a great CI price. I've tried both Maduro and regular Delux and like them both.

My #1 Favorite Cigar
Many great cigars in my humador CAO, R&J, La Gloria, Monti Cristo, Etc. But the Arturo Fuente Double Chateau maduro is the best. Great, burn, flavor, smoke, ash. The perfect cigar IMHO.

Arturo Fuente Flora Fuente
The Arturo Fuente Flora Fina 8-5-8 natural is a favorite of mine. This cigar is always consistent in construction, burn and flavor. A very enjoyable smoke. The purchase was smooth and the cigars arrived quickly.

Excellent cigar
Arturo Fuente, one of my all time favorites brands and the Double Chateau is the perfect size. You can always tell how well a cigar is rolled by the long ash that remains well into the cigar and the fact that it stays lit even after it is set aside for a few minutes. Just a great smoke and great flavor.

Good cheap cigar
For a cigar of it's price you get a good earthy tast with a consistent even draw. You need to pay twice the price to find an equivalent cigar.

Very good smokes
I had one and as soon as I was done I bought a box. Very good draw, burns perfect. Has a lot of flavor. The price is very good as well. I would recommend these to anybody.

Arturo Fuente 8-58-8's
Pros: This is my favorite cigar. For me it is the right length ring and intensity. I prefer the Natural wrapper. I purchase this cigar more than any other form CI. Cons: Frequently the cigar band won't come off the cigar without tearing the wrapper, this cigar is also prone to the wrapper coming loose or splitting open.

Great cigar!
Great long lasting cigar. Wrapped tight enough to burn a long time without having to constantly re-light.

Arturo Fuente Curlyhead Deluxe Maduro are one of the best of the cigars I have ordered recently.

Disappointed.
Not what I was expecting. Only the higher priced Fuentes seem to be worth it.

Cant beat an AF
The Corona is my go to every day favorite. price is right as well as quality and taste. always have some in the humidor. great in the afternoon with a cup of espresso roast. I prefer a medium-full cigar, but like these as much. A nice smooth stick with a hint of sweet.

Nice medium cigar
Looser wrap. Easy draw. Nice mild to medium flavors and burn 1st half. Gets a little bitter after that.

Fine Smoke
Rich, satisfying, consistent, everything you love about Arturo Fuente, and in the perfect vitola. If you haven't tried this one, you owe it to yourself! Buy a 5er, you won't be disappointed!

Arturo Fuente Breva Royale.
Decent smoke for the price. Burned evenly to the end and I also enjoyed its flavor to the last puff. I'll give it an 86.

Fuente Royal Salute
I decided to treat myself and bought Fuentes Royal Salute. I am not disappointed. I just wish I could buy these all the time. I've had several and each had a nice draw and mild-med flavor. Burned well all the way down.

Excellent Cigar
I have enjoyed the 8-5-8 Flor Fina Maduro so wanted to try this Hemmingway Maduro. I enjoy the bolder flavor and although a quick smoke, size and ring centric, this Maduro did not disappoint. Fine cigar, much in flavor, and as with all Fuente cigars, top shelf construction!

Unbelievable Smoke
Incredible cigar! This is by far my favorite cigar and my go-to in my humidore. The order was shipped and arrived very quickly. The cigars were in perfect condition and begging to be lit! Expect a medium flavored, slow burning, smooth draw of a smoke! Makes my mouth water thinking about it! Tip of the cap Arturo!

Great Smoke
Once I found the Arturo Fuente brand through a friend I've been completely satisfied. Now I'm making my way through all the different series and sizes. The Brevia Royale is a great smoke for the price. I've even dipped them in bourbon and that was a real treat. Try them and you won't be disappointed.

Good cigar, affordable.
I bought these as a fill in smoke and was not disappointed. Although on the mild end of the spectrum, where I prefer full bodied cigars, this has a good flavor and is very smooth.

Heaven
Didn't really enjoy cigars but the guys would smoke them when we got together. Then a good friend gave me an Arturo Fuente petite corona. Wow, thoroughly enjoyed it down to my fingers. Turns out the reason I didn't like cigars that much was I was smoking lousy cigars. The Fuente brand is the one I stuck with, why change when you find a winner. The Hemingway's are very flavorful and I enjoy those. Also enjoy the regular corona's too. You can't go wrong with any of the Fuentes, the Anejo's are pricey but on occasion I treat my good friend and myself.

Fuente Breva !!!

Latest Order
The entire experience in dealing with you was excellent The price of your cigars is reaching the "tipping" point. I am aware of your problem with taxes but I very seldon buy a Fuente cigar. Used to buy them by the boxes.......................

Not bad, there's better
This is a fairly strong stick. Construction is Good not great. To be honest if you can afford the more expensive Fuente cigars then skip over this one, if not browse some different brands. Before you jump on a box, try a single stick from a local shop.

Just a fabulous fly-fishing cigar. You can never go wrong with a Fuente.

Good, affordable cigar.
Very good for the price. Mellow, mild, seldom hot. About one or two cigars per box is w tapped too tight and will not draw. About 3 cigars per box will get bitter for some of of the smoke. The above notwithstanding, still a good deal.

Disappointing Decline in Flavor
Very noticeable decline in quality of both flavor and construction recently. Not sure what's going on at AF, but the most recent offerings appear to be a shadow of their former quality. They have completely lost the AF flavor profile and burn. Very disappointed as this was my "go to" daily smoke.

Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Maduro
I've only smoked one out of the 5-pack I purchased. It was a good cigar in flavor with a hint of sweetness. The burn had a hard draw though.

Everything about this purchase was great! The price was excellent for cigars as well as the freshness. Looking forward to my next purchase.

Consistent build, lacking blend, ho-hum taste
Good construction, nice easy draw, all were very consistent, well made. The blend on the other hand was lacking any complexity, pretty much leather and tobacco from start to finish, medium to mild body, medium burn, loosely packed. Was just OK, quality made, but no kick, good for beginners or ladies

Go-to cigar
The Fuente Spanish Lonsdale has been one of my go-to cigars for years. Always consistent burn, construction and outstanding flavor. Plus it's an excellent value.

My every day Smoke
I was looking for a every day smoke and the Arturo was just what I was looking for. The cigar was to tight of a draw when cut with cuter, put that was solved by using a punch.

Great little smoke. Extremely mild and priced low enough to share with friends.

Uneven burn and wrapper separation.
As a whole i like the selection , however i was some what disappointed with the freshness of some of the Arturo Fuentes. The wrapper came off right after lighting the cigar and another did not burn evenly. I think i may still order from CI and believe this was a rare occurrence. Robert C.

I would not order these again... too dry and brittle. I am going back to Perdomo 10 anniversary robusto. I occasionally try something different but always return.

Great short smoke!
I've enjoyed these small sticks for years. You can't go wrong with Arturo Fuente. I do usually let any new cigar sit in the humidor a few days before smoking them just to give them time to relax after shipping.

This is a great mild and tasty cigar; great in the daytime. Not the gratest construction, but the clippings from other cigars in Fuentes lines makes for a pretty awesome taste.

One of the Best
I happen to bring a box of these with me to our Eagles Tailgates, as this stick is a very mild smoke, people rave about them, and beg me to always have with me... This has been my go to smoke since 1990.. Nice to see the price coming back within reason.. If you are hosting, one of the best cigars to have!

Try a Candela
I love this cigar. I don't know how many other brands I have smoked but this is probably my very favorite. The candela wrapper is a bit delicate and the band usually cracks it when removed, but that is my only complaint. The flavor is unique, well balanced with creamy smoke and a very pleasing experience. I've smoked at least 100 of these babies over the years and they are always consistently good. I wish candelas got more attention. I do like Connecticuts and Maduros as well.

Good winter smoke
Love these little sticks during the cold winter months.

A good smoke with an unfortunate flaw.
I purchased a 5 pack of the 8-5-8 Candela and they are good smoke. They have good flavor, a lot of good smoke, good construction, and burn evenly. The big issue for me is the adhesive application on the ring. I have smoked two of the five and the glue used to adhere the ring on both has also adhered the ring to the wrapper so removing the ring has resulted in tearing the wrapper. This is disappointing for an otherwise very good cigar.

AF Cuban Corona
I have tried almost all of the popular brands over the years and the Fuentes are at the top of my list. Their Cuban Corona is consistently well made, great burn, smooth taste, and smokes in 30 to 35 minutes. I love it.

Circa 1986
The 10 year old wrapper tells the story. This is one hell of a quick smoke. Med-full bodied. Makes you wonder what a corona would taste like.

excellent knock around smoke
This is a spicy batch with a light body and notes of fresh ground pepper, also a pleasant earthiness. Don't know if the next box will taste the same or different, interesting smoke, somebody somewhere would pay good money for this kind of taste.

Top notch!
These cigars are a great buy for anyone! If you're new to smoking cigars, this stick is a great start. If you're a cigar smoker who's slightly interested, I say go for it. Great burn, great quality, outstanding flavors and transitions throughout, not to mention one of the best price versus quality cigars on the market to date. Bought a whole box of maduros for this reason! Complex cigar that's not overwhelmingly strong. This cigar is sure to please anyone new to cigars and anyone who smokes frequently.

OK Dependable Smoke
I like the minis or petite coronas rather than the robusto, etc. It's an "okay" cigar, very well put together, very dependable on taste, draw, burn. As a social "security" old vet curmudgeon, I have to buy in 5 packs. I compare these to J C Newman's maduro Quorums -- which, for lesser price and (in my opinion) slightly more enhanced taste (slight wrapper sweetness, subliminal cafe, tiny bit of spice -- though bland spice). Quorums will be replacing the 8-5-8s in the humidor. As a once farrier and horse equine tack maker, I've never found what this "leather" flavor is! And "earth"? I never did (even in Nam) eat dirt, intentionally.

The AF Exquisito has become my go-to quick smoke cigar
These have become my absolute favorite go-to cigar. I also smoke CAO Gold Karats, but these Exquisitos are something truly special! They have that famous AF flavor and punch in a neat little package that takes 20-30 (maybe) to enjoy. I couldn't possibly recommend these enough to someone looking for a quick smoke on breaks, in the car, or after a long day without much time to relax. Aboslutely, positively, and enthusiastically recommended!

Best Fishing Cigar
I fish Bass tournaments all over the area and when I do, there is only one cigar I carry in my boat......Fuente 858 Maduro. I need a cigar that will hold up while I fish with both hands and hold the cigar in my mouth. Most cigars will deteriorate and I can not stand constantly having to spit out cigar wrappers.
5 out of 5
cant remember ever having a bad Arturo
You are going to need some time to smoke one of these but it just gets better as smoked-I generally go for their Hemingway line and only when I can splurge a little-they are a little pricey but worth every nickel.

Customer Testimonials
These are all strong cigars despite the description. They are excellent, but be aware you may go down for the count if not a seasoned smoker.
The Double Chateau is one of my favorite cigars and in my opinion, the best offering from AF for the money. These cigars are very smooth from start to finish and are complimented with any beverage from a nice single malt to coffee after dinner. This is one cigar that everyone should try at least once.
Always a favorite every day smoke for me. A lighter smoke for summer time. Even draw and tastes great. Consistent box after box.
Ok, I try many cigars, and by far Arturo Fuente has impressed me the most from the humidifier package on the box to the cigars themselves. Great smoke, consistent burn, and great taste. I'm glad I got them. I'll be buying more in the future.
I had the A. Fuente Grand Reserve and it was a smooth taste with a rich smell. I originally thought b/c of the dark roast of the wrap it was going to be a full taste with a tobacco after taste, but none whatsoever. Love it.
I haven't had a FUENTE I didn't like yet. Every one has been perfect from the construction to the burn. Can't get enough; keep them coming please.
The 8-5-8 is THE cigar that made me a cigar smoker. I'm a maduro smoker, but the Natural wrapper is just as good on to me on this one. Also, for a cheap stick, the Curlyhead Deluxe Maduro is my go to.
Smooth and enjoying stick; A stoggie that you can enjoy whether you are on the golf course or just chillin' in your backyard.
The most reliable 1st class smoke.
This is my standard smoke at the house or the golf course. They are my standing order. 4*
Great smoke. Quality build, even burn, nice mild strength. I absolutely love smoking these and wish I had a bigger humidor so I could store a whole box.
The Cameroon was my taste. Not smooth, medium body with a harsh tobacco finish. Not great. (3/10)
Very good cigar. Will be ordering more of these. Super smooth!
A really good 20 minute cigar for the price. My wife doesn't let me smoke in the house and, let's face it, it gets really hot in Texas this time of year. So I can enjoy a really good cigar in a short time with a great price too.
The Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 and Cuban Corona are undisputed masterpieces, but to me the unsung hero of the Gran Reserva series is the Exquisito, the cigar that made me a lifelong Fuente loyalist in the first place. This little cigarillo packs all the power, nuance, & complexity of the Gran Reserva blend into its tiny 4.5 x 33 frame, and in my estimation it — along with the slightly larger Punch Bolo— are the best small cigars money can buy. Like the Bolo, the Exquisito is a perfect scaled-down representation of the series as a whole. Try it in either the natural Cameroon or the maduro Broadleaf wrapper — you won't be disappointed. It's basically a 25-minute synopsis of the Fuente Churchill. It is THAT good.
Really like the Cheteau Madura
The cigar has hints of wet dog, yes, Thats the word that comes to mind when i light one up. They should have called it Labrador.
Breva royale: I bought these on a whim. They were easy light easy draw but left a lot for want of a decent cigar. First third gives a ashen after-taste and the last 2/3 are harsh and short on flavor. I will stick with the 8-5-8s if I chose Fuentes again.
Great cigar! Good construction,even burn, great flavor. I ordered a five pack of the maderos. First one I smoked had my heading spinning when I got through with it. The second one I just finished up smoking after it had been in my humidor for a couple of weeks. I smoked it down to the nub! Delicious cigar!
I've always been a Arturo Fuente fan. I like the 8-5-8. Always know it will be a quality cigar finely constructed.
Great taste! It came fresh and fast!
Found cigars a pleasurable smoke, but, they burned very uneven.
I normally lean towards more budget end cigars, but my local shop was out of my staple. However, they were having a New Years sale so I decided to go on a palate adventure with some nicer cigars. I ended up smoking two of these that day. The time after I bought a couple more, then decided to just take home the remaining nine. Very nice construction, burns evenly, great taste, nice smell. I'll be ordering a box of these when there's room in my humidor.
One of my long-time faves for almost two decades: Maduro Canone. A 2-3 hour smoke! Recently, smoke it less as I gravitate to stronger Nic offerings. But still a treat whenever I burn one! This one NEVER disappoints!
8-5-8 Natural or Maduro are one of my favorite sticks. Long ashes my friends.
I am new to cigar smoking, but i loved these. If this is cigar smoking, then I am hooked. Arturo Fuente for me.
I am probably in for the same flogging as Steve-O. I just finshed my third sample of the Fuente Chateau Robusto. First, I have to say this cigar has a bit more strength to it than some Fuentes I have had, and the flavor was pretty decent. Here are the "buts"... But, there was a grassiness that I did not enjoy. But, it was a one-note cigar; I did not get any real evolution in the flavor other than some unpleasant bitterness in the last third. Not too exciting. I will say that it was a solid medium-bodied blend, great burn and draw, and had an okay flavor profile....
This is one of my favorite
Love this smoke. The Chateau Fuente Maduro is a fabulous cigar. I have enjoyed them for many years. The only possible thing that could be better are the old double Maduro's, but those are a thing of the past. Enjoyable smoke vs. value Arturo Fuente is among the best. Get a few, relax and enjoy. A perfect companion to a nice Small Batch Bourbon.
The candela 8-5-8 is a gem, super mild with that fire cured taste that is unique to this type of wrapper. A bit expensive but worth extra coin.
Every Thursday after work, I go to the humidor and reach for the Rothschild Maduro. I grab my flask full of Jameson and take a drive to the beach.... do at your own risk. This smoke is a great week wind me down, full of spices and a leathery blend that lasts right to the nub. This, my friends is heaven, of course till the wife starts calling, but that half hour is fantastic. I highly recommend the Fuente Maduro if you appreciate a full flavored lip numbing smoke. The finer things in life.....
I have smoked quite a few of the Arturo Fuente cigars and to be honest with you I really don't see what all the excitement is with their cigars. Don't get me wrong, I like them and don't have anything bad to say about them well maybe one thing, (I do feel they are a little over priced). I really don't see why everyone puts them in such high admiration, sure they are a nice smoke with good taste and made exceptionally well, but there are a lot of other brands out there that are much better than a lot of theirs and they are less costly then a lot of their cigars are. I could name several cigars on the market that are better than the Arturo Fuente cigar and they are a better buy for the money but I will not start a debate right now. No doubt I will get those of you that will debate my thoughts on them but we all have our opinions on the cigars we smoke. I like them but I don't put them above other cigars that cost less then they do.
Mmm... This cigar (A. Fuente candela) is always kept in rotation. Not the absolute best smoke ever, but I enjoy the subtle change the candela provides me. It's smooth, and burns super nice. It has its own little unique 'green' flavor that really is unique.
I remember smoking this brand a few months ago and it was excellent but now their different. The wrapper slightly comes apart. It also looks and feel loose. They need better quality control. Don't get confused it's still a good tasty cigar. As for me I'll move on an try other brands. Then maybe I'll purchase later down the road an see if their quality has improve.
I tried one just recently. Not bad an not great just good enough. Strange how there were no band. I was hoping for one to add to my collection. They burn just fine an the aroma smells great. The flavor was okay for me that is. I had no problems with the draw. The construction are perfect. I'm going leave the rest in the humidor for awhile. I know for others will love this one but for me it's just a change of flavor from time too time. There nothing wrong it's just not one of my favorites or maybe with a little age it might be different.
I have been smoking cigars for years now, and Arturo Fuente is NOTHING of what it used to be. They should be ashamed of themselves for demanding such a high price for their sticks. I picked up some Hemingway Short Stories and Chateau Naturals at my local Brick and Mortar while waiting on my C.I. shipment. The short stories wrappers are so delicate the slightest abrasion will send flakes of it flying off and as you smoke it about halfway down both of their wrappers came unraveled. Oh and did I mention I had to use a drawpoker on both of them as they were so tight you couldn't draw through them. Now on to the Chateau Fuente Natural...Pre light aroma ehhh, upon toasting and first light OMG it literally smelled like cow manure and dried grass, I almost gagged and even my wife freaked out and she tolerates my cigars quite well, I had to put it out. From here on out I will never purchase another AF cigar, they are nothing more than an overrated shadow of their former self.
I have to agree with the "86" rating and I am a longtime AF smoker.
The Arturo Fuente is just an average cigar, nothing to jump around about. It wasn't too complex, but lit and smoked well. Meh....
One word comes to mind when I think of Fuente... Consistency Without question, Fuente is the most consistent brand of cigar I smoke. I don't think I've ever had a bad one, and I've smoked a lot of them, all sorts of shapes and sizes. They virtually never tunnel nor canoe, nor do they ever irritate the throat, and the draw is nearly always perfect... Seems to me a lot of time is taken to guarantee quality both of the tobacco and the roll.. Bottom line - Overall, Fuentes quality is top knotch and although there certainly are more flavorful cigars out there, Fuente is not far off the pace and they remain so consistent in terms of quality, I easily smoke more of them than any other top shelf brand..
I don't think I've ever had a Fuente cigar I haven't enjoyed. Always beautifully made and flavourful. Can't go wrong.
Ok, I know you guys at times at CI have thought that A. Fuente's were over rated and you have suggested alternative less expensive, lets call them better value cigars. And at time I have agreed, Opus is quite expensive and anyone with any patience can have a great ages cigar if they just wait, and not have to spend some $20+ a stick. I have an Anejo in my box now that I cant wait to have on a very special occasion, and I am sure that it will be wonderful albeit not worth the $30 it cost. But i do have to say that the 858 and the Gran Reserve Churchill are very worth their price. They are not astronomical smokes like the Anejo or the Opus yet they exude great flavor and aroma that goes along with their value. I had the joy of having a Fuente Churchill just the other night right out of th box and it was quite lovely. Nice burn, great draw and great flavor through and through. Not a smoke that changes and jumps around, just one that stayed consistent throughout. I would highly recommend some of the lower line Fuente's anyday. And at CI's lower prices $100+ for a box of premium cigars is by no means outrageous. Try them I think you will be quite happy.
Arturo Fuente's have never let me down. A delightful smoke with an exquisite taste and wonderful aroma. I prefer the Double Chateaus with a tasty libation. And for those times when I just want to relax; a Canon fills the bill. I've tried others...Montecristo's, Macadnudos, Guhrkas and others, but I still come back to the Fuente's. For my money and taste a leader by far. I have never had a bad Fuente.
A. Fuente...Churchill 7.5x48 was a pleasant mild smoke with a quality construction. Great morning cigar, even burn, and a nice aroma. This stick has enough body and flavor to satisfy the palate and leaves you wanting another. Good stick to share with your free loading buddies and even the ladies might enjoy this one. A pleasant smoke in every way....The flavor (almost) approaches a Casa Torano or Perdomo Cabinet Series Champagne.
Looking for an everyday cigar I ordered a box of curlyheads.(Arturo Fuente) Nice for the price.
AF (Arturo Fuente) has been one of my favorites for many years. One exceptional smoke for the money.
Double Chateau (Arturo Fuente) is the best smoke for a round of golf bar none. Has a smooth but distinct flavor that is not matched by any cigar in my humidor (I carry about 8 brands at a time). You will not be caught saying "I can't taste my smoke". Ever so slight bitterness to the wrapper keeps you lips kickin.
A new favorite - the 858 natural. Wow. The complexity of this cigar is impressive. At least two round trips between spicy and sweet. Definitely a new regular.
A very well made cigar (Arturo Fuente), with a strong flavor not for a weak pallet.
There is always at least a couple of AF's (Arturo Fuente) Royal salutes in my humidor. I call it the magic cigar. It shifts flavors 4 different times. It starts out a little spicy from the cedar wrap. Then it immediatly shifts into a macchiatto flavor,then to espresso. The magic comes when at about 2 inches from the nub it moves to coffee with sweet cream. A magic cigar at a magic price.
AF Chateau Maduro... Great smoke (Arturo Fuente). Slow burn, plenty of smoke. Hearty, refined taste right to the nub. Excellent!
By far the best cigar (Arturo Fuente) for the money. Smooth drawing and well made. 8-5-8s are my favorite
Just had a couple of "Fuente Fuente OPUS X" (Arturo Fuente)stogies and must say there were superb smokes! Any of the Fuentes is a good smoke for the money.
Adroit
