Arturo Fuente Reserva Don Carlos

Barnyard bling sums this cigar up nicely.

Barnyard scents of hay, wood and earth are the first things you will notice (well, apart from the prestige regal band which is a nice touch).

This cigar feels a little on the dry side; a little crackly once pressed, but the pack is consistent from cap to foot.

I thought I would go back to using a straight cutter as I find it’s better to help with tar accumulation, and I enjoy the open draw.

Wow this cigar does a lot right without being cocky about it! The flavours are light, but defined without any hint of bitterness. Hay and dry wooded earth do the heavy lifting, but a hint of sweet cedar and cinnamon appear for the sharp but short finish.

I really can’t fault this cigar. Construction, smoke output and burn are as good as can be, and even though the flavours are medium at best they are polished and very enjoyable.
