Arturo Fuente

Double Chateau Fuente Sun Grown

This Churchill burns unevenly but draws well imparting a chewy smoke that is strong and spicy. A sweet dried apple note balances out the full-bodied flavors.

A dark, weighty Churchill with a bumpy head and thick veins. Mild tea notes build to a peppery smoke with some walnut undertones.

Issue: Jun 01, 2010
Score: 89
A big cigar whose initial, fleeting vegetal notes quickly turn to leather and toast flavors. The finish is floral.

Score: 86
Covered in a splotchy wrapper this cigar draws well. The smoke is cedary with citrus flavor and a dry finish.

Score: 87
Good texture to this nicely-made Churchill. Cedar and cocoa flavors are most apparent before subtle apple and light spice notes surface on the palate. A slow starter, but pleasantly medium bodied.

Issue: Feb 01, 2006
Score: 90
A superbly crafted cigar with leather, earth and sweet spice notes, as well as some toast. A full-bodied blockbuster.
