Fine Flower indeed.
Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva Flor Fino 858 Natural is a premium tasting cigar at half the price of other cigars of its quality. The Gran Reserva series is a must-try for any and all cigar smokers.
Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva Flor Fino 858 Natural is handmade with a Cameroon wrapper and the classic Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente. The citrusy Cameroon wrapper is creamy and sweet with aspects of cinnamon spice. The tobacco is woodsy with cedar, white pepper and more spice atop floral notes. This medium bodied cigar is smooth and not overpowering on the palate.
Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva Flor Fino 858 Natural is the perfect accompaniment to your morning coffee and after dinner with a medium bodied red wine such as Pinot Noir. If you prefer bourbon I highly recommend an Old Fashioned with a floral twist.
St-Germain is a liqueur flavored with elderflowers.
