Fonseca?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have thoughts on Fonseca? I was told they are machine made short filler cigars. I have two friends who have tried them, one says he thinks they are a very decent cheap cigar and he keeps them on hand and the other says not so much.

I sometimes like to smoke when I'm fishing but I hate to blow up a good stick on a windy, rainy day!

I would not mind if it was a less expensive brand

They're neither short filler nor machine made.

I suggest you read up on cubancigarwebsite.com - the best source for information about cuban cigars on the internet.

Thanks for the info I knew I came to the right place

I enjoy them. Very mild, Can become tedious... But when I just want something I can drift with I grab a Forenseca for a treat or a Quintero Favorito for cheap.

The KDTs are the best bang for your buck stick around. Check'em out.

Had not bought these in years,got a box 2 months ago.

Have never seen such a shaggy looking wrapper on a cigar,but they smoke very well.

Less sweetness than years ago,heavier flavors, but still a good cheap cigar.

Love to smoke Fonseca as an everyday smoke. The price is right and the flavors are great. You'll get a nice grassy, hay flavor then butter flavor. The wrappers are not the prettiest but the cigars are wonderful! 70d6b95829f6a883a752c7fc2b74d120.jpg

I have a box of cosacos on the way. I'm looking for a light cigar that is nuanced. Hopefully they aren't to light.

They are a bit light but what they lack in "punch", they make up in flavor!

No.1 as a morningstick with a nice coffee does it for me. And as a treat i'm in love with the No.4 aka ER Benelux. But these get harder to find...

Fonseca #1 is pretty damn good especially for the price point.  I think I will have to get another box soon 

 

Just finished some singles gifted by a shop owner once

Also need a box in stock

Smoked my first one yesterday - a #1, MEL Jun 2016, been restig for about 90 days.  I liked it and agree with most of what is said above. Nothing overly complex but a nice overall smoke.

Haha. I don’t know where in Colorado you are, but those who don’t live here will never understand how it can be a beautiful, even hot day with snow on the ground and temperature in the 40’s.

I'm in Littleton.  It was another relatively warm day again today-until the sun went down!

I just came across a cheap box of 2015 Fonseca Delicias at a shop that was just buried and forgotten on a shelf.  First third was the best. Toasted marshmallow, cedar and cinnamon.  Got bitter by the end, but it was nice to have an aged box for me to pick at while my monte 2s and Partagas  D4s get more age on them.
