Arturo Fuente Sun Grown 858 Cigars - Sungrown Box of 25 uses an exclusive Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper, which is signified by the black band on the label, and distinguished by its naturally sweet taste, like a maduro, but lighter in color. Like all Arturo Fuente cigars, only the highest quality vintage tobaccos and hand workmanship go into these medium-bodied cigars characterized by their richer flavor and marvelous aroma. This cigars are considered amont all the Fuente Limited Edition because of the unique wrapper used. Quantities are very limited. If available, you MUST HAVE IT!

I have been smoking the Fuente 858 Sun Grown cigars since they came out in 2000. This has been and is my go to cigar. Over the last 12 years I have smoked almost 90 boxes of these.
Beautiful construction with a perfect draw. I love the extra body and tons of flavor the Ecudorian Cloud Grown wrapper gives this cigar. This years batch is from the second rolling of this cigar. It appears to be a ring gauge or two larger than the first rolling (releases from 2000 through 2008), hence the slightly larger boxes. I asked Carlito about this and he just smiled which isn't uncommon as the Fuentes keep their cigar sercrets very close to the vest. A gret value for the price. Just finished off a box released back in 2000 and it has aged very well. These old Fuentes still have a lot of legs! However, I really like htese freshso you can't go wrong!

My favorite everyday smoke. Hard to find but well worth the hunt.
