Right off the bat, the Queen B gives off a perfect draw with a slightly creamy note. After the initial lighting the spice that we’ve all come to love from the Arturo Fuente’s comes into play along with a slight chocolaty note. The burn remains tight as the flavors begin to develop into a complex cigar. It becomes a more earthy and chocolaty cigar than a spicy cigar once past the initial light. Once into the second third of the smoke I began to notice a slight cedar note along with the earthiness becoming more prominent. I had also picked up on a small amount of a tobacco note that really filled out the flavor profiles of this cigar. Once into the final third of this cigar, spice became one of the more prominent factors of the cigar, it was not overpowering, but it was definitely there. These flavors remained through the rest of the smoke until I finally ended it. Overall I enjoyed this smoke and I feel like it goes far to unnoticed compared to the other Arturo’s such as the Opus X, Hemmingways, or the Anejo’s. Next time you are in your local cigar shop I highly recommend picking one of these up to give these Fuente’s a try.
