It takes some of the most experienced hands in the business to make a cigar that has deep roots in Cuban history, and Manuel Quesada is considered one of the most knowledgeable tobacco men in the Dominican Republic. He was the first to blend the famous Romeo y Julieta brand outside of the Dominican Republic, and today he has a portfolio filled with highly rated brands.
Usually associated with mellower cigars, Fonseca breaks the mold with this blend. Expect more of a medium-bodied (maybe even medium to full-bodied) blend with this beauty. Draped in a dark, oily Habano wrapper, the blend is as Cuban-esque as it comes. You’ll get hints of spice right from the beginning, and the cigar remains fairly consistent throughout. The spice that hits you up front evolves into a creamy, cedary flavor as it lingers on your palate. The flavors are balanced and refined, leaving you feeling relaxed and fulfilled. This cigar is nothing short of what you’ve come to expect from Fonseca.
I got this off the Sprint sale section. I love the sprinter. This deal came at a good time just before Thanksgiving. I had the urge to try one after sitting in the humi for over a week. I am going to have to say that this Fonseca Cubano Limitado is a very good smoke. It burned well. I didn't have re-lighting issues. The draw was excellent just one cut. The build was nicely wrapped minimal veins and the seams were done well. The taste was subtle and interesting with a flavor shifts ever so often. It is definitely a relaxed smoke. In my opinion it was not harsh, Light on the pepper. It was a good deal for me. I am going to have to order more even at the regular sale price if I can't catch another deal like that.
