It is a different blend, a combination of other fuente tobacco and (if you are talking about the original) a sungrown wrapper vs a rosado

It's my understanding that the Destino al Siglo is a different Opus blend. I am not sure about the wrapper although the Angel's Share is supposed to be the same wrapper but different priming, i.e. lower onthe plant so not as dark. I was able to score a couple of the Super Belis, so hopefully I can judge for my self.

From what I have heard, the Destino al Siglo cigars the Fuente's released are a "tweaked" OpusX blend. I've only heard of the Lancero and Super Belicoso sizes being released by the Fuente's. Now Prometheus put out some Fuente sets both last year and this year that have OpusX cigars with a secondary band that says "Destino al Siglo". These are regular OpusX cigars, not the tweaked blend the Fuente's released. The sets Prometheus released this year (FFOX6 travel humidors) had an OpusX Tauros the Bull and an OpusX El Escorpion that had secondary "Destino al Siglo" bands, though the cigars are regular blend OpusX.
Basically, the only two sizes of OpusX with the Destino al Siglo tweaked blend are the Lancero and Super Belicoso; any other sizes that say "Destino al Siglo" are just regular blend OpusX. Sounds like llwydtp found the "real" Destino al Siglo cigars.

I just picked up a few of the Lancero's and Super Belicoso's on Saturday. Cant wait to try one and hear comments from others.

Are people getting the Destino al Siglo mixed up with the Angel's Share blend? As far as I've been able to tell, the DaS releases are regular Opus with a special band. The Angels Share, OTOH, is a totally unique blend.

I think Kid is right.
I've had two of the new Destino Super Belis and they seem to be the exact same blend as the older Opus X Super belis. I really didn't see an difference. Had a new one with the new band and followed it with one from my stash that I got earlier this year. Couldn't tell any difference but enjoyed both
