The Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 Candela (6″ x 47)
Hi I’m Stephanie with CheapHumidors.com and today we’re back with another unboxing, our box today is the Arturo Fuente 8-5-8. It’s really interesting with this box because these cigars are done in a Candela wrapper.
So you kind of get a couple hints on the outside of the box as what you are going to see on the inside. The Claro sticker, right here, kind of hints that you are going to get a Claro wrapper. Those can typically be tan they always are a mild smoke, but this one is green, hints the green sticker. So on the front of the box you have the Republica Dominicana sticker, that wraps around to seal it. You also have the imported sticker on the front, telling you that these are in fact imported from Dominican Republic. You have this little droplet sticker up here which means that this box includes a two-way humidity pack ensuring that all of these cigars are ready to smoke when you purchase them.
So on the top of the lid you have the Arturo Fuente standard logo, it’s the logo that you are going to see on all the Arturo Fuente cigar bands. Down in the front it says Flor Fina with the 8-5-8, has the same on each side. So that’s basically the outside of the box, let’s see what’s inside. You just want to slice the Republica Dominicana sticker. Right when you open it you are going to see this lovely art work of Arturo Fuente, it’s got quite a bit going on right there and just have red painted cedar wood right next to it. Then you will see the transparent paper which you’ll pull back and you’ll discover the two-way humidity pack, once you take that out you will find their transparent print of, basically what Arturo Fuente cigars are all about and how they make their cigars. Then once you get through all of that you will see the cigar.
What makes this cigar stand out is its green Candela wrapper, it’s a very pretty muted green, almost like an army green. It’s got a nice sheen to it, meaning it’s probably going to smoke pretty well. So the band is your standard Arturo Fuente band, it’s nicely embossed with green and red decals all over it. Now this cigar is the Corona size which is 6 inches long with a 47 ring gauge. This cigar hails from the Dominican Republic and, like I said, it’s wrapper is what really is making it unique here with the green Candela wrapper and the binder and filler are both Dominican.
