8-5-8 AnniversaryThis cigar is next in my JR Sampler. I lit it for a midday smoke. I've been a longtime smoker of Claro Curlyheads, used to buy by the box from JR.
The length and ring size contrasts what I've sampled so far in this sampler. Enjoyable to hold and smoke. She's smooth, mild but flavorful with a touch of spice. Now that she's warmed up she's really smooth, silky smooth. She may be mild but she has lots of flavor, I find it very satisfying. Lots of smoke from this skinny! Although I like medium to bold, even BOLD, I like a good mild one too. It depends on mood and time of day.
In classic Fuente fashion, this is a wonderful stick.551

8-5-8 Anniversary Candela
6 × 47
Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Anniversary Candela cigars bring the once famous, now long forgotten, green claro wrapper back to the rolling table. The pineapple like taste of this rarely used top-leaf, combined with Fuente’s signature blend of estate grown Dominican fillers, produce mellow flavors of cedar, cocoa, spice, sweet tobacco, and cream.
