Fuentes Crucet Habanera 78 Torpedo

I’ve decided to do something a little different this week. And different for me could mean just about anything, but in this case it means I’m resorting to a video review. My main reason for switching gears is because I just happened to drag my new video camera to a local Fuentes Crucet event to get some relevant footage. And, well, random video clips just don’t seem all that easy to work into my standard Tower of Burn.

As you probably know by now, one of the prizes in our 12 Days of Christmas Contest is a signed box of Habanera 78 cigars. And if you’ve been paying very close attention (I hope you have, there will be a test) you’ll remember that I reviewed the Fuentes Crucet Habanero 87. You might be thinking that somewhere along the way, we made a typo. We didn’t, Fuentes Crucet has two cigar lines, the Habanero 87 and the Habanera 78, which commemorate the birth years of the children of the owners, Jeyson and Desiree, respectively. So this review will give you my thoughts on what you’re in for if you’re lucky Day 7 winner.

The Habanera 78 is Fuentes Crucet’s premium cigar line. It’s billed to be fuller and stronger and, of course, is a little more expensive than it’s bundled brother, the Habanero 87. You might remember that my verdict on the 87 was that it was a solid cigar, but not my cup of tea in terms of the flavor profile. I’m really interested to see how the Habanera 78 fares. Let’s check it out. In video!
