There is no harder cigar to find from the Fuentes than the 8-5-8 Rosado. This sample comes from the 2009 release. They are prized as collector’s items, so I was interested in seeing how such a rare cigar actually tasted.

The appearance of this cigar doesn’t suggest anything special. The reddish tint and few veins make it attractive, but it really doesn’t jump out at you.

After lighting it and taking the first puff, all I can say is “Holy crap!”.

What a rich robust flavor! Smooth and creamy, teeming with leather and a bit of spice, the first puffs are a dream. The finish is really long, allowing me to enjoy these flavors long after the exhale.

The stick is full flavored but not strong. However it does pick up halfway through. The same flavors are present but in greater intensity, making it a complex cigar, sort of.

The last third is rife with espresso and cocoa notes with that purveying leather flavor.

What a joy this was to smoke! It makes me understand why they are so heavily sought after.

Rating: 94 (A)
