Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Arturo Fuente Anejo Reserva No. 50
Written by Cigar Geeks Member: Jared (The Burn Ward)
96
Cigar Geeks Rating

Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  Up for review this time is the Arturo Fuento Anejo #50.  This is a harder to come by and pricey cigar that we are fortunate to have up for this review.  It is a limited edition cigar that comes out twice a year and is a true feast for the cigar aficionado: a dark maduro wrapper rolled around the best filler and binder from the Dominican Republic, then aged to perfection for 5 years in cognac barrels.  This cigar has been generously sponsored by our member Nick (kxthor911).  Thanks very much for your generosity Nick!

This cigar was enjoyed with Water

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 10 Possible

This cigar is slightly dry and very dark. It has minimal veins, a little bumpy and an even firm fill. A beautiful presentation to this cigar. Cap cuts clean with my Xikar. Prelight is sweet and earthy.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

Lights easily. Burn comes down a little uneven. Requires no touch ups. The ash held for the first half then I tapped it and the ash remained til the nub. Ash is light grey and white with some thin black streaks. Great Smoke output.

Construction: 30 Points of 30 Possible

This cigar provides me with a perfect draw throughout the entire smoke. Seamless wrapper with a very well applied cap. The band comes off clean. There were no negative aspects in the construction of this cigar.

Flavor: 33 Points of 45 Possible

I've smoked a good amount of Anejos and this one is on point. Very rich with a deep sweetness. Cognac is prevalent. There's a good amount of pepper that plays along nicely with some cedar. The flavors waver a bit near the final third so I slowed down my puffing to get that taste back.

Summary

This vitola seems to always exceed expectation. High rating aside, this is not a cigar I would choose to smoke in any regular rotation. An all around great smoke. Thanks for letting me in on this one.
