The Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown King T is Carlos Fuente’s idea of a good cigar and honestly, he couldn’t possibly any more correct. The construction of this cigar is near perfect. The beautiful Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, aged for 8 to 10 years, has a nice brown color with a reddish hue, hence the name, “Rosado” (which in Spanish means pinkish). The seams on this cigar are basically invisible; it has few small veins and almost looks like it’s covered in thin, fine leather. After being constructed these cigars sit for an extra year, aging to perfection. The burn is flawless but that’s expected from an Arturo Fuente cigar, and the ash is a beautiful solid white that holds on very well. The draw on this stick is great, producing a ton of smoke that will turn heads with its powerful yet, slightly sweet aroma.
The Arturo Fuente Rosado Sungrown King T isn’t a powerhouse cigar but it is filled with flavor. This medium bodied smoke is quite complex, flaunting flavors of sweet cedar, a bit of leather, some roasted nuts and a long peppery finish. You can tell the blend was very carefully created because the flavors flow so well on the pallet, each complimenting the others perfectly. Everything about this cigar screams special but the price, which is inexplicably low given the quality of the cigar, but who’s complaining, right? Definitely one of Arturo Fuente’s best, the Rosado Sungrown King T is a stick you will be sure to love.
