I have always wanted to try one of these, and I finally got my hands on one thanks to Blake, fca_blake70. Brother, I really appreciated it. This smoke was worth the wait. But the problem is that I love this cigar and this is a pricey one. About $30.00 a stick and exclusively sold at Casa Fuente in Las Vegas.

Country: Dominican Republic
Length/Ring: 5.25 x 50
Shape: Robusto Perejo
Wrapper: Cameroon
Filler and binder: Dominican (Eligibly same as Opus X)
Strength: Medium – Full

The cap was a smooth and beautiful, The Camaroon wrapper, smooth, firm to the touch, and very oily. Of course, I used my double guillotine to get a straight cut to reveal the same construction and mix of tobacco as the foot.



As I lit my cigar, I had my first taste revealing an earthy flavor with citrus. The burn was uneven but self corrected quickly and my first ash was light gray. As I progressed into the first portion, I could taste the complexity of this wonderful cigar. I noticed hints of what tasted like cinnamon or nutmeg flavor with wood undertones. I started to get a hint of coffee for a while and the ash started to grow, still a nice gray and very sturdy. The smoke was dense and the flavor enjoyable.

As I entered the second third, I tasted hints of a floral, almost a creamy taste caressing my tongue. The burn was perfect and the ash would not let go.

Entering the last third, the ash was still hanging on. It was over three inches before falling off in my lap. Somehow, with this fine smoke, I didn't mind. I continued, and it just kept getting better. I noticed that getting close to the end, it was back to a citrus flavor with hints of spice. It had finished like a pro.



I highly recommend this cigar. A genuine treat for the pallet. Definitely worth trying, even at $30.00.

Great review, I have a couple of these and have always wanted to smoke one, just haven't gotten around to it. I will have to light one up soon. Thanks for the motivation.

It's a tweaked Opus X blend... not exactly the same, but based on it. My take on these cigars is that fresh, they are a little too strong in terms of really tasting the nuances of the cigar. I'm guessing that 4-5 years of age will make these really nice (I enjoy them now too, though).
