Overall Experience:

Overall this Arturo Fuente Rosado Gran Reserva was a real mild to medium experience with just the right flavor profile to please the palate. A great cigar for everyone but if you’re looking for a fuller bodied, bold experience this cigar would not be it. I think this would make a great morning cigar with an espresso or american coffee.
