ARTURO FUENTE ROSADO MAGNUM R56 25'S
Wrapper: Ecuadoran Sungrown Sumatra
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
The wrapper leaf under the bands was a deep reddish brown, thats traced with finer veins.
Magnum R56 produces an attractive, solid white ash and maintains a burn line that is almost perfect.
Rich roasted nuts, cedar and leather notes in the first third of the Magnum R56. A balanced combination of sweet cedar and leather were the presiding flavors, with a sudden growth of pepperiness in the finish.
Clearly this cigar is meant to be special, but it doesn’t carry the price tag of Fuente’s other special releases. With an eight plus year old wrapper leaf and excellent construction, RM55 is a steal.
Between the great flavor, the excellent construction, and the friendly price tag, what we have here is a perfect storm of box-worthiness. The Rosado Sungrown Magnum is easily one of the best Arturo Fuente cigars.
