Quick Smoke: Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8

14 Feb 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8

At a bargain price of $3-4 per stick, this Cameroon-wrapped classic is much more accessible than Fuente’s high-priced Hemmingway, Anejo, Don Carlos, and Opus X lines. It features a straight burn and charismatic flavors of nut, pine, herbs, and toast. If you ask me, the Flor Fina 8-5-8 (6 x 47) is the tobacco equivalent of homemade chicken soup—inviting, reliable, and downright comforting.

Verdict = Buy.

    Pat! I gotta say I love the simile you used here. Enough to go through the pain of surfing and leaving a comment on a blackberry! Now I can't say I enjoy these, but still, as well crafted a review as a quick smoke can get.

    The 8-5-8 is one of my favorites. It's like an old friend; trustworthy and reliable. A very fine smoke, especially for the price.
