The 858 has long been a favorite with me and all my friends, and catching them on sale at BCP on top of their already great price is epic!

Nothing wrong with these, but other brands now match the consistent Arturo brand and cost the same or, importantly, less.

I purchased the 8-5-8 as a substitute for the Queen "B" which was out of stock for a period of time and was recommended to my by one of the Best Cigar customer service girls. She was right the 8-5-8 is a nice medium smoke with good flavor and burn to the end much like the Queen "B".

I have been smoking 8-5-8 natural for over a decade. Over the years, the structure of the cigar has changed. The wrapper comes apart a little, I have had cigars with holes on the wrapper. I always try to find another cigar but have been unsuccessful. For the price, I have not seen another cigar that has the same taste and size and for the same price that matches this cigar yet. I wish I could contact the Fuente family and ask them to revisit their QA of this cigar, it is a shame to see it degrade in quality. As of today, I have to claim that I am waiting yet for another box of this cigar from Best Cigar Prices. Somehow for this specific cigar, seems like BCP has the best price.

Still my favorite, after many years. Taste and consistency are always 100% correct. Only the OpusX line tops these beauties!

Arturo Fuente has a history of producing premium hand-made cigars dating back to 1912, and the Flora-Fina 8-5-8 line is a fine example of the quality craftsmanship that has endured for nearly a century. The 8-5-8 Claro uses a Connecticut Candela wrapper, which is light green in color, and very mild in flavor. This is largely due to the low sugar and oil content in the wrapper, which also tends to make them burn a little faster. The Natural uses a Connecticut Shade wrapper, which is light golden brown, and generally provides a smooth, mild to medium smoke. The Maduro has a Connecticut Broadleaf wrap, which is a dark brown wrapper with rich, sweet flavors and aromas. The high sugar and oil content in this wrapper is responsible for its thick and veiny appearance and full-bodied strength and flavor. If your friend leans more towards mild-bodied smokes, I would reccommend either the Claro or Natural wrapper.
