Guest Quick Smoke: Arturo Fuente Royal Salute

14 Oct 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar. The following is a Guest Quick Smoke, submitted by a reader for our Quick Smoke Cigar Giveaway contest. If you’d like to submit your own for publication, please contact us.

I stepped into my car one morning, lit this monster up, and started puffing down the road. Some 218 miles later, three hours and five minutes from starting, I put the beast down. At 7 5/8 inches with a 54 ring gaige, this Lincoln Log of a cigar (Dominican with a Connecticut wrapper) is a long-hauler’s dream! Great draw and no major burn issues over the entire course of the smoke. It tastes great, too; like Chinese five-spice with some leather and sugar thrown in. It did get a little zippy with nicotine toward the end (what l call “nicotingle”), but it didn’t slow me down a bit. At about $60 for ten sticks, it’s a real Fuente bargain!

Verdict = Buy.
