If you’ve been searching for an everyday medium-bodied Habano, then be happy you’ve found Arana.
Fonseca is one of Cuba’s oldest and most popular brands, and for the past four decades it has also called the Dominican Republic home. Today the brand is in the hands of cigar legend Manuel Quesada, who has expanded the borders of many famous Cuban brands such as the Romeo y Julieta. Quesada is considered by many aficionados to be the finest blender in the Dominican Republic, and his Fonseca line is considered one of his crowning achievements.
This beauty is chock-full of aged Cuban-seed Dominican long leaves, all masked by a Criollo ‘08 binder. It's topped off with a premium Habano wrapper, and features a spicy, nutty, and earthy combination. If you want an amazing everyday value—this is your cigar. Only available in singles or mazos of 20, Fonseca Arana is a real treat you won't want to pass up.
I like trying new cigars (new for me) and I recently gave this Fonseca a try. Very nice flavor, I thought medium in strength, and the size was perfect for me. Would and will order again. Give four stars because It burned a little unevenly for me. Had to relight a number of times.

They are a nicely rolled cigar. They draw well and burn nicely. They are a little bitter for me.
