Fonseca KDT Cadetes


Overview: Fonseca KDT Cadetes

Fonseca KDT Cadetes is named after its vitola, with a 36 ring gauge and a length of 115mm, this is the smallest of the Fonseca range. Filled with an elite blend of tobacco, this hand rolled cigar is held together by a rich Colorado wrapper and finished with a delicate white paper that carries the band, leaving this stick naked when smoked.

The KDT Cadetes had a distinctly woody flavour, while we also found chocolate to be at the top with dashes of vanilla and fruit also coming through. The amount of smoke this modestly sized cigar produced was impressive and extremely enjoyable for the 35 minutes it lasted.

We recommend this one anytime of day as it stands well alone or next to a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Definitely a nice place to start for beginners or anyone looking for a brief and delicious cigar, this is an excellent one for everyday smoking.

Delicias offers an excellent price to quality ratio making it a more accessible choice to the world of cubans as you build up your humidor.

The smallest of the Fonseca family, with an unusual format. Like all those bearing its name, it seems to want to be recognized not only for its presentation, Fonsecas are wrapped in a thin layer of rice paper, but also for the strange balance derived from its measures. A small cigar with big boy characteristics.

    I started smoking these little gems when I first started smoking. They are some tasty reasonable smokes. The presentation on how they are each wrapped in tissue gives this cigar quite a look. They are great for first times being I find them not that complex with a wood like flavor. These are quite enjoyable and a good buy.

    Great quick cigar with very round wood and pepper tones. They do age wonderfully, and I prefer them with at least 5 years on them. The best I had were around 8 years old.

    I have been smoking strictly Cubans for over 20 years, thought I would give these a try b/c I needed some 30minute smokes in my humodor. Although they are wrapped in a cheap white paper, the overall appearance is excellent. However, that is where the beauty ends. The draw was very tough, I hate to have to work a cigar, I can’t enjoy that. It began very bland with some slight hints of a woody flavor, the ash cylinder was not impressive & fell off quickly, I had to relight as it got near the end, but the re-light was worth it. The last 10minutes was the best part of this cigar. Very light & I guess for a novice it’s o.k. Price is right, but the substance is just not there. If you are a cigar smoker, look elsewhere.
