Arturo Fuente Cuban Coronas

I just got a box of AF Cuban Coronas to stash away for a Christmas party we’re having. I figured I’d try one out, wow, the thing wouldn’t draw for squat, total disappointment. Could it be that they are a bit too moist for transit and letting them sit for awhile will improve them or, did I find the bad one in the box? Comments.

Well,
there are much more knowledgable guys here that can comment, but getting a bad roll in a batch is always a possibility. I'd let em sit for a while around 65 to 70 % humidity and try another one in a month or two.

I got a box of those several months ago and I had the same problem...a lot of them were very tight and I actually threw several in the trash. I dunno what to tell you. They're great cigars when the draw isn't too tight.

I have had a couple and they were great! Maybe you got the shaft with your box

I've gone through boxes of those and I've found that the only time they didn't burn correctly was when I didn't let them rest long enough...I think I read somewhere that Fuente tests the draw on their cigars, so that would lead me to believe that it isn't a construction issue...but you never know.
