Believe it or not but this is not only the first A. Fuente cigar I've reviewed it's the first I've ever smoked. Why? I don't really know, but I did discover that at $4.95 a pop (if you buy them by the box from Famous Smoke Shop) I've been missing out on a really tasty cigar. 

Quick Details

Shape: Rothschild 4 1/2 x 50
Country: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro

Under the cedar sleeve of this Arturo Fuente Rothschild you'll find it wrapped in a hearty and stout looking dark maduro colored wrapper. From the cold foot there's a faint aroma of cocoa to the nose and once the triple cap is cut you'll find a smooth even draw with notes of spicy cocoa.

Once the cigar was burning the first mouthfuls of medium bodied smoke were smooth with notes of cocoa, spice and a hint of fruit. As the slightly uneven burn progressed up the body, nuances of earth, oak and leather dominated the mix. By the final third the burn had straightened out and the cigar finished still in the medium body range with nice flavor mix of sweet, creamy cocoa, a bit of charcoal.

Overall this Arturo Fuente Maduro Rothschild really surprised me with its great tasting flavor mix and nice fifty minute burn time. I highly recommend this cigar and you can pick them up from in five packs or boxes of 20.
