when my friend told me he had purchased a box fo Fonseca, i had doubts whether cigars in this lower price range would be any good. boy was i wrong when i tried them first hand. these sticks came in a interesting white tissue like wrapper, upon removing the white wrapper, i was greeted with a dark, oily, shiny stick. lighting up the stick strong cuban flavor came through, burn was consistent, strength was medium, flavor carried a bit of cocoa taste for me, excellent contruction through the cigar, lasted me a good 1 hour smoke. very excellent smoke for such a good price, highly recommended!
This cigar is a total surprise to me, because some of the reviews i have read claim this cigar to be mild and not top shelve. Well i have a different experience with this cigar. It started off mild and became spicy and medium by the midway point. Surprise, the taste got fuller as it got closer to the band. This cigar just became one of my main stays.
These cigars belong to a brand that is "forgotten" in many countries but that is worthy of attention. This 42 gauge is the brand's most popular. With a length that puts it between the Corona and the Mareva, it is a medium-quality Habano, with a smooth flavor and aroma and aneasy draw and combustion. An all-purpose Habano.
