Arturo Fuente Double Chateau Maduro cigars are easy to spot thanks to the rich, dark brown, oily maduro wrapper that serves as the public face of this stick.
A medium-bodied cigar, the Double Chateau starts with hints of sweetness from the maduro wrapper. Then, you'll notice cedar notes that give way to a earthy flavor with possibly espresso or coffee on top. As you hit the second-third of the cigar, you'll notice the strength starts to pickup. You'll get a bit of spice and even more sweetness. As the cigar burns to the nub, you'll pick up more spices and some woody flavors come back into the picture. All in all, it's a great cigar with a moderate amount of complexity that is easy enough for beginning cigar fans but not so simple that it'll leave aficionados bored.
Since it's a Fuente, you know you're getting some of the best cigar know-how you can find. Arturo Fuente is a legendary cigar company with some of the best hand-rollers out there. Pair that with awesome filler tobacco from the Dominican Republic and you're bound to get a cigar that you'll be burning down to your knuckles.
