Cigar Coop Review: Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014
Show Video: Episode 137
The Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014 is the third installment in what seems to have become an annual limited production release by Arturo Fuente Cigars. For the most part, this has been a series that not only is not only “unnamed”, but has a cloud of mystery around it. There isn’t much that has been disclosed on this series. The only thing we really know about the Unnamed Reserve 2014 is that it introduced a 6 x 60 gordo vitola into this series.
I found this to be a rather complex smoke. The cigar started out with a slight cotton candy sweetness along with natural tobacco, grass and red pepper. As the cigar progressed it got less sweet and took on more earthy notes. The cigar was quite earthy at the end, but the spice component had kicked up a notch. The strength and body were both medium.
The Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014 came out of the gate and impressed me. While this cigar wow’d me at the start, the wow factor soon was gone somewhere in the second third. On the plus side, there was some decent complexity to this smoking experience. The end result is that I found the Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2014 to be a good cigar, but not a great one. This cigar just didn’t match up to the level of the Arturo Fuente Unnamed Reserve 2013 Toro that I enjoyed so much. Since not much is known about this blend, I can’t infer that this because the 2014 was a 60 ring gauge.
