Dimensions:

Length: 162mm

Diameter: 17.07mm

Ring Gauge: 43

Shape: Cazadores

Appearance:

A very nice brownish wrapper with very tiny veins that has a soft touch. The triple cap is perfect.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up:

The pre-light draw is of light hay and chocolate.

Burn/Draw:

The burn is even and sharp and the ash holds firm. The draw is smooth and easy but not too loose.

Initial third:

The initial third starts with sweet touches of nuts and cream, the aromas surely sweet but there is a decent pinch of salt bitterness as well. It is a delight.

Middle third:

During the second third, you are surrounded by a dense and milky smoke coming from the cigar. The major flavors are of salted nuts. Delicious.

Final third:

In the final third, the cigar flavors evolve and the coffee and cream aromas now stand out. Nevertheless there is a distant sweetness sporadic flower taste hints.

In summary, these Fonseca No 1’s are a joy to smoke. They are under appreciated.

Smoking time: 60 - 90 Minutes

A superb cigar , 7/15/2017
By Odd
The cigar is a gem hidden in rice paper and for a steal at 149$ you cant beat it, it is a complex cigar with mellow and light flavor of seeder and floral notes it does not become bitter or harsh at the end, a real delight to smoke. Thanks to Cigar Terminal for great service beyond expectation.
Fine looking cigar , 1/14/2017
By Robert
This was a fine looking cigar. The box presentation is wonderful. The pre-light aroma was medium bodied and very pleasant. Upon lighting, a vein burned about a half-inch from the foot, but stopped there. It didn't impact the overall burn.This was probably a one-off occurrence. This stick produced a lot of good flavorful smoke. Looking forward to these getting some age in the humidor.
Flavorful, rich, but nice and mild. , 6/29/2016
By Cody
A fantastic cigar when looking for flavor without getting killed. This is my go to when wanting a good barny, leathering, woody cigar without the punch of something like a bold Partagas.

Great for mornings, or when evening comes and want to put tour feet up amd have a flavorful cigar that is relaxed.
Mild Yet Packed With Flavor , 6/10/2016
By Cody
Fonseca, love them. The NO 1 is a fantastic cigar on the mild side yet doesnt sacrifice flavor. Barny, woody, earthy, and mildly aromatic. A must have.
Great Bargain , 4/1/2016
By Ronald
Need some downtime (3 years minimum from box date in my experience), but then you have a cigar that is supremely balanced, complex. I cannot divide this cigar into thirds because it is a constantly evolving masterpiece that typically leaves me guessing from puff to puff. One of the milder Havanas, strength-wise.
