Maybe i had a bad stick which happens from time to time but i was pretty disappointed with the Fuente 858. Looking at it there was shiney glue all over the wrapper. The flavor was not all that consistent. I would try again if the opportunity arose but there are so many other cigars out there that i love or haven't tried that it will be a long time.
go for the sungrown
squidot on 06/08/15
I've smoked all of the 858s: natural, maduro, sungrown and claro. The sungrown I one of my favorite cigars. The claro was tasty as well. I'm not much of a fan of the natural and maduro but many seem to enjoy them. Its all about that sungrown in this line. A hidden gem.

Great affordable smoke
A solid medium bodied Dominican smoke. These are leathery and sweet and available in multiple wrappers. The natural and maduro are delicious but the sun grown is a cigar that tases better than smokes at twice the cost!
Always have some on hand. A great cigar for all occasions and it is priced well too. I tend to favor more full bodied sticks but when I want to have a cigar without much pretense this one really fits the bill. Great for handing out to friends.
Good Evening Cigar
I picked up a five of these last week, and was not disappointed. It's hard to find a better "sitting on the porch after dinner" cigar that wont break your budget. These guys are an hour to hour and a half of time well spent.
Fuente knocks it out of the park!
The best flavors to describe this cigar are caramel, cream, and a tasty brown sugar like sweetness. It has an underlying twinge of sour Ness like a lemon or lime tone. It's an amazing cigar and can be had for a solid price point. Would highly recommend!
Great all around.
This was one of the very first cigars I smoked, outside of the swishers of the world. A guy in a great cigar shop in Denver recommended it and I've been hooked ever since. Could just be nostalgia, but this is my go to cigar or just about every occasion.
A true classic from A. Fuentes, good core flavors. Nice use of the cameroon wrapper nice sweet tobacco and cedar with spice on the finish. A must have in any cigar Smokers humidor. It's not only offered in cameroon also available in maduro and Claro.
A great treat!
I was given one of these by a friend of mine. I can see why this brand has the reputation that it has. I did like with this one that it kept the same flavor because it allowed me to enjoy the cigar plus time with my friend.
This cigar is one of my favorite middle of the road cigars to grab. The flavors are always consistent and spot on. Look for woody tobacco flavors with some hay tossed in. The fuente construction is great and the draw has been perfect. I highly suggest these.
A Fuenta 8-5-8
This is one of my top five smokes at a great price. The construction is flawless. The first 3rd is full of leather and pepper. The ash holds well and is nice and tight. I'd rate it an 8/10 and for the price you can't do better.

Slow burn on 06/28/15
A strongly flavored cigar with hints of spice. It was an excellent and slow-burning smoke that was over all enjoyable. The construction was excellent, it was tightly rolled and densely packed. Over all an enjoyable smoke.
Great AF cigar
t won’t stop you in your tracks, but the Arturo Fuente 858 Sun Grown is a solid smoke with a flavor profile that fans of Fuente products and sun grown tobacco will enjoy. It’s just an easy cigar to smoke, and one that goes especially well with a cup of coffee.
A good stick anytime
Solby on 06/11/15
The 8-5-8 is a solid cigar all around. Great construction, good flavors and consistency. Pre light: leather and tobacco with a hint of earth. First third: light coffee on the retrohale and a nice earth and tobacco taste. Second third: little bit of a burn issues sometimes around this point but it usually corrects itself very evenly. Hint of a cocoa now with the previous flavors intensifying. Starts to move above medium to a medium full range. Final third: full in medium-full at this point. Loses the earthy flavor at this point and a full tobacco and leather flavor with a hint of coffee acidity here. Manages to stay pretty cool up to the nub. A well done cigar for a decent price. If you enjoy this one, try the Maduro as well. Both good sticks.
Buy these already

Well for starters let me say I'm a huge fan of the whole af line I've been to the Dominican republic on two different occasions and brought back my limit on both trips with that being said on of the best cigars I've enjoyed my times and have never been let down . Definitely a go to cigar and always in the humi
Bls1112 on 06/16/15
Smooth and creamy at first light, very likeable cigar for all. You get tastes of cedar and tobacco with flavors of mocha getting stronger through out. The end can get somewhat bitter but overall a great experienxe.
Ben S. on 06/18/15
Great everyday cigar for the cigar enthusiast. Good flavor with a touch of sweetness finished off with a bit of a bite. Worth the money and time to smoke. Enjoyable with a cup of coffee or a good bourbon or scotch. Very versitile cigar. I recommend the 8-5-8 sun grown as well. If you like smoking maduro this is a strong cigar as well.
Get ready for relaxing smoke
Smokey on 06/19/15
Fuentes need I say anymore, one of my favorites when I can afford to splurge. Always smooth consistent and good. Burns great taste the greatest I put these out and re- light later because they are so good I just can't get enough of Fuentes 858 expensive but really worth it
never ever disappoints
Steveb on 06/19/15
One of my all time favorites. The Cameroon wrapper is toothy and flavorful. Construction is very good and the feel of the cigar in your hand and mouth is great. The box is awesome as an added benefit. There is a good reason that I bought these to pass out for my first son's birth. I knew they wouldn't disappoint!
The friendly Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Cigar.
Derek on 06/22/15
I have found an unexpected fondness to The Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Cigar. It greets me pleasantly when I revisit it. It has not disappointed me when I am desiring of its characteristics. Such a cigar could not. It bids me a fine farewell. It is lovely when it is at its best or up to par. A choice cigar amongst a comparative selection.
One of Fuentes finest for the price
Welkington on 06/19/15
One of my favorites. Fuente has some of the best cigars out there and this is one of them. The price is on point for it to be an everyday smoke. 8-5-8's are where it's at and I highly recommend them
so nice with spice
Cigarmedic on 06/08/15
Omg the Fuentes have hit it out of the park as always. Top quality excellent construction flavor of cocoa leather and spicy oh so nice excellent paired with Sam Adams Boston lager and after dinner or for dinner lol
Solid, if unamazing cigar
Blue horseshoe on 06/15/15
The 858 is a solid mid-range cigar. Fine for the course when more expensive cigars will be under appreciated. Nice, but solid (not particularly complex) flavor paired with adequate construction. You can do worse for sure
Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 is an awesome smoke!
Jec2k on 06/24/15
This Arturo Fuentes 8-5-8 is a fantastic cigar. I recently had the opportunity to enjoy one of these with two friends while out on a night of fun. They asked me to pick from the myriad selection of cigars at this whisky bar and I selected these. Everyone had so many complimentary things to say about them. It made me happy. Great smoke!
Lou on 06/09/15
Great cigar. Received this stick as a gift and just smoked it after leaving it in my humi for 4ish months. Great draw/construction and a very smooth flavor. Not one of those guys who writes about the flavors of earth and what not but I thought it was very good. Would buy again.

I like the 8-5-8 as my all-around go to cigar because it goes with everything... relaxing on the deck or patio, playing golf, entertaining company, you name it. The consistent quality is 100% perfect every time I light one up. Tastes great with a nice bourbon or a red wine, or after a good meal.

My GoTo Cigar
BlackJacque on 11/03/14
I really like this cigar. Its my 'I have 40-minutes to smoke' choice for the past 15-years. Its never bad. If I have a complaint, its that over the years, I've progressively segued into the Toro-size, and I'm finding the 8-5-8's corona-esque dimensions a bit small and hot-burning.
Earthy? Tobacco? Good burn, a little bitter
The cigar was rolled really well and had a great initial draw to it. The cigar started fairly bitter and then opened until to some earthy, tobacco notes as well as espresso as I went through the first third and into the second third. As I finish out in the last third of the cigar, a bitterness came back. I would smoke it again, but would try to find something with a little less tobacco and earth flavor in it.
Bigz6392 on 06/11/15
It was one of the first Fuente sticks I have ever had and probably the most memorable to date. I haven't had the desire to fork out a pile of cash for any real high end fuentes but this will do the trick anytime
Stalemunchies on 06/09/15
This cigar was a great beginner cigar. It was a nice medium body smoke with some ok flavors. Mainly leather and tobacco. Construction was decent, with a razor sharp burn and a steady draw. As with most Fuentes there was more than enough glue on the band.
One of my favorites!
erb05004 on 06/09/15
I have always enjoyed the 858 cigar. Over the years I have always kept these cigars in my humidor as they are a wonderful smoke. I find these cigars to have perfect draw and are always consistently made and have really great taste. I highly recommend the 858 to anyone looking for great cigar.
