Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Arturo Fuente Magnum R (Rosado Sungrown) Vitola 52

Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member Vroomp (Brad).  The cigar provided for this round is the Arturo Fuente Magnum R (Rosado Sungrown) Vitola 52.

The Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown Magnum R 52 is yet another show-stopping cigar coming from master blender Carlos Fuente Jr. Ever since their beginning, the Fuente family has absolutely dominated the cigar industry with their exotic blends, incredible workmanship and unmatched consistency. The Rosado Sungrown is by no means any exception to this standard of quality that the Fuentes seem to master like nobody else. As just about all Fuente cigars, this one hails from the Dominican Republic and is lovingly rolled using the finest quality Dominican filler and binder leaves. The big story about this cigar, however, is the exotic Ecuadorian Rosado Sungrown wrapper leaf, gathered from the lower primings of the tobacco plant for a more mellow, "old-school" taste, straying from Carlos Fuente Jr's signature trend of powerful "experienced smoker only" cigars of recent years. These leaves were left over from the original Fuente Sungrown line and aged for an incredible 8-10 years before rolling. After production, the cigars age for an additional year in order for the flavors to "marry."

This cigar was enjoyed with Ice Cold - Aquifina

Pre-Light: 18 Points of 20 Possible

This stick was received on 05/06/2019 and immediately placed in the Humidor at 65%RD and 70 degrees temp for 14 days. Stick was then removed to rest at room temp and humidity for 4 days until smoking.

Smoke Date: 05/24/2019 at 4 PM - lasting about 90 minutes until "put down - for flame out".

I wasn't sure what to expect as I had never tried one on these sticks before. I was well pleased, hooked right out of the cello with the sweet creamy and cedar aromas.

The cap was perfect in construction and application - I choose to use a V Cut to enjoy this stick. Also, the V Cut was perfect - leaving no tobacco chads the spit out.

Pre-light draw was smooth and easy, with flavors of cream and cedar at the forefront.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

The stick toasted easily and evenly giving off ample smoke with the smoke having a nutty cedar smell - quite pleasant and enjoyable "second hand smoke". No relights required with only a slight minor touch up to get the burn back to even and razor sharp. (And it was a very slight touch up!!) The stick gave off generous plumes of smoke when in draw, as well as slender trails of smoke throughout even when resting in the hand or on the stand. The grey white ash held firm and tight in 1+ inch segments that would probably held to 2 inches - but I tapped them off early (chicken - you know - wearing a white shirt so I didn't want to risk it)..





Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

The stick was well constructed - firm to the touch. The impressive reddish-brown wrapper had many small veins but they were very small and did not take away form the smoke-ability nor enjoyment. The Cap was perfect with absolutely no imperfections detected. The draw remained constant throughout the entire burn. Basically, no adverse conditions noted in construction, and none during the smoking/ burn process.

Flavor: 33 Points of 35 Possible

I found this stick to be medium in strength and body. For me, it remained constant throughout in complexity, aroma's, flavors, etc. It started out creamy, sweet with cedar woody tastes and stayed that way the entire burn. The smoke maintained a nutty cedar smell from start to finish. The first, second and third sections of the stick had no real detectable differences for me.

Summary

Overall, I enjoyed this stick and would definitely considering buying a few - or a box even. The fact that it remained so consistent throughout the smoke, would make it a great stick before or after food or drink (for me anyway) since the flavors of the cigar would not be overbearing on the flavors of the food or drinks. I think it would be a complimentary cigar to most any occasion. Also - a very good stick and at a reasonable price point, leaving a few dollars for a Bottle of GREY GOOSE.

Thank you (Vroomp)Brad, for allowing me to participate in this Critique.
