858 Sungrown by Arturo Fuente Cigars


What can I say about the “classic” Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Sun Grown that hasn’t been said? This is a classic cigar plain and simple. When I crave a cigar, this is what brings me back. When I first decided to get back into the Cigar Hobby earlier this year, the 8-5-8 along with her other sisters “Short-Story” and “Best-Story” got placed into my TupperDor without hesitation.

This cigar elicits the same response from me every time… the Ahhh, kick back and relax with a rich flavorful and very affordable cigar.

At the light, sweet cedar is what greets me with my punch-cut cold draw with the pepper trying on the retrohale with a smooth earthy and sweet cedar finish.

Halfway and Leather comes to the party and the pepper finally arrives and coats my tongue for a nice long finish.

I’m set to enjoy the rest of this fine cigar…
