    Characteristics A firm smoke, with a complex, heady spice, like thick, wet grass. Insider's Tip Up until the launch of the Cubano Limitado, Fonseca was known for producing mild smokes. This cigar aims for a headier flavor. The oily Honduran-grown Cuban-seed wrapper is the result of aging in tercios, hardened palm fronds that encase the bales of tobacco so they ferment in their natural juices. Five shapes are produced, with the 6 1/2 x 52 being our choice. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
