logo - Puff, Rotate and ReviewWe’ve had a lot of success with the cigars produced by the Arturo Fuente family on Puff, Rotate & Review. Not only have we loved the ones in the past that we’ve had, but they’ve always attract a lot of attention … especially for the giveaway we conduct with each of our PR&R episodes.

How popular are they? When we reviewed the OpusX Shark in January, the related giveaway had the most entries ever for one of our sweepstakes. The discussion surrounding this stick was very spirited, too. We liked both elements, and we hope it continues with the other cigars we review at PR&R throughout the year.

So we’ve moved onto the Chateau Fuente KingB, a stick recommended to us by our good friend Granville Smith at Signature Cigars in Rockville, Maryland. Will this stogie live up to the expectations set up by him? Watch the video to find out.

We’re pairing this with a drink we’ve never rated before here at Stogie’d, but it’s one we’ve had often when the camera isn’t rolling: The Dimple Pinch 15-year old blended scotch whiskey.

A very nice pairing, and a nice surprise with the cigar!


It’s over! Check back soon to see who won!

What do you think? Does the Chateau Fuente KingB live up to the Fuente family name? Is it a good substitute for the pricey and at-times hard-to-find OpusX? Have you had construction problems with it? Let us know in the Comments section (where you can double your entries into the weekly contest by leaving a comment).

    I see your neighbor is fairly close…any complaints on cigar smoking from them?
    I forgot all about Pinch….Have to hunt down a bottle, nice review.

      LOL – actually, he’s farther away than it looks on the video, so I don’t think they get anything there. They’ve never said anything, anyways. I’ve also discovered that HD lenses aren’t so great at depth of field.

      And I had forgotten all about Pinch, too, until a couple of weeks ago when we had to empty our liquor cabinet at home to move it to a different room. I saw it and thought that it would be great for a review.

    I’ve smoked the Rothschild in the Chateau line and really liked the sweetness that came out of that cigar. It was on the milder side strengthwise, but still had nice flavor. I have the Queen B resting and would like to add the King B to my collection.

    • Bob Woods says:

      After this stick, I’m a true fan of the Fuente family now. I’ve had several different sub-brands of theirs (both rated and just on my own), and I have yet to have one that has been nothing less than really good.

  4. Great review. I’ve smoked a few of these, and really enjoyed them. It’s what I consider a universal cigar. You can smoke it anytime of any day. I’m a big fan of the Chateau Fuente line, with the Queen B being my favorite. Keep up the good work. I always look forward to these reviews.

    Fuente consistently puts out great smokes in all price ranges. This looks no different. Can’t wait to try one. Great review. Twitter – biggierob
