Default A.Fuente Rosado Gran Reserva Vitola 54

There is a write up at Cigar Family's site by David Savona.I saw no reason to copy this work here.Good write up though.

My review is...
I was pleasantly surprised at the level this cigar didn't suck.

Here a crappy laptop picture...

Now that's what I call a 10 second 1/4 mile review.

I concur. Great everyday smoke. Reasonable price.

Quite a departure from the Grand Reserva I have come to know over the years.
I will also respectfully disagree with some of Savonas tasting descriptions.

Smoked one last week a gift from my brother loved it but seems hard to find and a little expensive for me to buy a box.

I think there are plenty out there, they are just limited to select authorized dealers. And they have to be sold in a B&M. Even dealers who are authorized and have online stores are not permitted to sell them online.

I think they range from $5 to $7 a stick if you're paying MSRP, depending upon the size.

Really a great stick.

I am loving them. But I tend to like most rosado wraps anyway. I just picked up another fiver this week. I would love a box but the EDRMs were calling a bit louder. So many cigars, so little money
