Fuente Fuente Opus X Perfecxion X

6.25 X 48 Rosado

Dont think just because I have had the joy of reviewing all these superlative sticks as of late, that it is at all going to my head. There will be a review of a Consuegra #9 Maduro next week, I assure you! That said, another fabulous gem to review tonight. I have had a few different sizes of the Opus X before (the Power Ranger, Lancero, Fuente Fuente, DBL Corona) but I am not sure I have had THIS specific size before. One of the things I was so amazed byt the Opus line is that the different sizes can present such varying flavor profiles.

I am not going to bore you with the obvious details (fabulous wrapper, draw burns etc) and get into the nitty gritty. The longer lenght and wider guage on this cigar brought forth a different palate. A fabulous contrast of sweet and tangy, coupled with yummy balck pepper sage, and clove smells and tastes. This bad boy while producing copius smoke burned slow and languidly, and I got a full 1 3/4s hours of pleasure out of it, every last bit of it a joy. I am not even going to insult you with a recommendations, sufice it to say, the kind BOTL who sent it to me, it was thoroughly enjoyed.
