    it tastes like feet... the wrapper smelled sour prelight and the flavor just seemed to get stronger... i got about 2 inches in and had to abort...
  • I happen to like that cigar but hey we are all entitled to our own opinions and tastes.

    What, I just looked these up and it described them with some subtle spices of which clove stands out and cedar. with strong licorice notes, it said nothing about feet. You're going to have to describe the taste of feet a little better for me.

    I'll have to try the one you sent me. I'll let you know what I think.

    ha... i was being less than serious... it's just had a sour tasted... the wrapper looked kinda blotchy too... so maybe it as a funky sick... or maybe it just doesn't fit for me... idunno

    I've had one. I didn't hate it, but at the same time I don't think I'll buy another. Fuente is one brand that I've never really gotten into, there have been a few exceptions, but on the whole I just don't get Fuente.

    Absolutely love the 52. I think they have a lot of smooth sweetness, cinnamon, leather, and a little of that spoiled fruit that I dig in Fuente.

    I think the 52 is the best size aas well

    I must say, that Opus PL you gave me was fantastic, as was the Hemingway Sungrown. The Hemingway line is one I've consistently enjoyed, the Don Carlos started coming around after a few years.

    I have the torp, havent tried it yet, but now not really looking forward to it

    okay just to clear things up as a fuente fan. the 52 is good nothing to write home about, but not bad. I wouldnt say that i love the blend but at the same time i still buy them.

    I was doing some thinking ( I know, I smell the burning rubber too) and what I had wasn't the Fuente Rosado, I was confusing it with the Fuente Sungrown, of which I tried the 8-5-8.

    858 Sungrowns really benefit from a few years of down time in my experience.

    Also, I hear rumors on CF about a Rosado Magnum in a corona... 44 ring gauge.
