J. Fuego Natural

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

I’m sure most of you noticed I missed my Friday review. I have no good excuse. Life simply got in the way. Don’t fret, this place isn’t becoming yet another cigar review site that doesn’t get updated (you know who you are).

Anyway… I rooted around the humidor and found some J. Fuego Naturals. I can’t recall where I got them, or even when I got them. The only thing I know about them, well, you are about to read it. As always, I paired this review with water and here are my thoughts.


Wrapper: Nicaraguan Shade Grown Criollo

Binder: ???

Filler: Honduras & Nicaragua

Size: Toro 6.5 x 52

Price: Around $6.50


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The dark wrapper was rugged looking and had a nice sheen when held to a light. There were some small to medium sized veins. The odor off of the wrapper and foot was a natural earthy tobacco. Overall the cigar was tightly packed, but I did find a couple tighter spots. This probably explained a draw that was a little on the snug side. The pre-light flavor was a dark earthiness with perhaps a hint of coffee.

The burn required no corrections, and the ash held for an inch or so. The snug draw turned out to not be an issue.

The first third had a bit of a spicy blast when passing smoke through the nose. Next up was earthiness combined with wood. The woody flavors lingered on the palate long after exhaling the smoke. After about an inch or so, the peppery spice calmed down but kept some of it’s “Zing.” As the first third came to a close, the smoke took on a smooth feel.

The second third had a dominant woody flavor. It wasn’t cedar, but it was wood, that’s all I know. The earthiness faded and was hard to pick out at times. When retrohaling, that peppery zing was still there, but with less intensity. The smoke feel was somewhat creamy and buttery. It had a sweet overtone that resembled mocha or creamy caramel.

The last third… It went quite well. Like before, the dominant flavor was wood. It was strange though. It was woody, but a creamy wood. A sweet tingly spice appeared on the aftertaste. The buttery, creamy, sweet smoke was impossible to ignore. It just stuck to the mouth and lips.

This was a very enjoyable medium bodied cigar. It was nothing groundbreaking or amazing. It was simply enjoyable and relaxing. Overall, I enjoyed the flavor profile and experience. I definitely recommend trying this cigar.
