First third – This starts off medium bodied with a rich nuttiness mixed with vanilla spice and pepper. Once the pepper fades a nice caramel note takes the stage. Burn is pristine Ash is white and holding strong
Second Third – Cedar wood notes begin this third as dominant notes. Slight citrus present on the finish. Nice vanilla comes back a few minutes into the third. The cigar gets real mild at the half way point. Real smooth cigar so far. Burn remained pristine. Ash came off at the 2.5-inch mark.
Final Third – The same flavors carry over into the last third. Cedar, vanilla and citrus to complete the experience. Burn remained pristine.
Wine – Stag Leap SLV or Conundrum Rosé
Scotch – Johnny Walker Platinum
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.
