Grand Reserva Churchill Maduro
Arturo Fuente makes some of the best cigars in the world, from the “entry level” Curly Head to the super premium Opus X, and everything in between.
One of those cigars that are “in between” is the Grand Reserva Churchill Maduro, which measures 7 ¼ inches in length with a ring gauge of 48.
Made in the Dominican Republic the Churchill Maduro is medium in flavor.
For a Fuente, the taste of this cigar is about average, but when compared to the universe of cigars, the taste of this particular Fuente is definitely above average.
The taste was consistent throughout, and was very enjoyable from beginning to end.
The cigar was very well constructed and had an excellent draw. It burned evenly and held a long ash.
The cigar lasted almost an hour and a half and required one relight, but only because I walked away for a couple of minutes.
When purchased by the box of 25, the cost of this cigar is about $4-6 per stick.
When factoring in the size of the stogie, the Fuente Churchill Maduro is an excellent value.
This cigar will last almost twice as long as the typical corona size cigar, so you need to dedicate sufficient time to fully enjoy smoking this cigar, in order to appreciate its full value.
