Arturo Fuente Opus X
Opus X Cigars are the highest offerings from one of the leading cigar families in the world, Arturo Fuente, and as such they exemplify all the best ingredients, growing practices, and craftsmanship available. These cigars from the Dominican Republic contain the whole story of how dedicated cigar makers committed themselves to overcoming climactic challenges in order to take full advantage of some of the best soils in the tobacco-growing belt. The rich, fertile soils of this island nation have long been prized as the ground that nurtures robust, flavorful filler and binder tobacco.
Growing quality wrapper leaves, however, was considered impossible by some producers, due to the topography and the wind on the island. Wrapper leaves must remain on the plant longer, enduring more exposure to the elements. Their growth cannot be rushed, and must not be hurried, since it is only with time that these leaves soak up from the nutrient-laden soil the full, deep flavors that are essential to a fantastic wrapper. The elements would commonly ruin the leaves before they were ripened to perfection. Using innovative practices, the first marketable crop of cigar wrapper quality tobacco was harvested in 1992. Internally, family and company members were ecstatic with the quality and flavor. Soon, cigar aficionados everywhere were raving as the Opus X line, featuring these deeply satisfying wrappers, hit the scene. Containing full-bodied Rosado filler leaves and binder grown on the Dominican Republic’s renowned Chateau de la Fuente, a brand was born that would soon become one of the highest rated cigars among industry reviewers and publications, taking its place on prestigious “best of the best” and “top 10” lists.
A near perfect smoke, the Opus X offerings come in a range of sizes and lines. Each delivers full-bodied mouthfuls of flavor in every draw, with heady aromas to match. The construction of these hand-rolled gems is always exquisite, so the draw is smooth, the burn exceptional, and the entire experience a memorable one. Each label and vitola presents a fine variation on the Opus X flavor theme, exuding characteristic quality and consistency. The Opus X line is one world-class vintage smoke that lives up to its reputation every time.
