At the Gilbertsville Cigar Factory, we’ve been having a slight problem. It has nothing to do with the shop – the trouble is with everyone’s favorite budget cigar. Over the past couple of months the supply of Charter Oak Maduro has stalled and word has been getting around that they may be back-ordered for some […]
In this weeks installment of Look what I bought on Cigar Monster I’d like to take you on a trip down memory lane. Back when Christian Eiroa unleashed on the world a cigar made entirely or Maduro. A cigar that would put hair on your chest and make the ladies swoon – The Camacho Triple […]
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been dabbling in cigars from my past. The most recent of which is the CAO America Monument – a 54 x 6.25 Belicoso that launched way back at the 2007 RTDA (or was it the IPCPR that year?) It’s hard to believe that this cigar was released so […]
10 thoughts on “Fuente Fuente Opus X”
After seeing this review I will give the Opus X a chance….I always thought it would be strength over flavor, but you guys seemed to enjoy the flavors a lot.
Great job Tom & Ed! The production was top notch!
Cigar reviewers that use dream theater in their opening? Nice production! Have about 10 resting, time to start ripping into them….
Great review … I’ll be sure to look specifically for that size. The opening to edit to the review great. Keep up the good work guys.
Thanks for the comments.
Tony-I’ll definately smoke these for special occasions (IE the 4th). I wasn’t initially impressed with the Opus, but the one I had for the review was great.
Ron – Dream Theater in the opening? How about the rest of the review as well! 😉
Marcian – The opening credits were meant to be cheezy, I hope my goal was met. If not, you’ll have to check the teaser on my blog. Pure cheese!
Another great one guys. I now have to try this cigar too. Thanks for the recommendation!
Hey guys, another great one. Loved the new opening.
I still haven’t had an Opus that I’ve liked. And not because of the strength, I smoke JdN Antanos and Camacho Corojos as my daily smokes. There was just something unpleasant about the flavors. But both I had were fairly young. I was gifted another last Christmas and I’m holding it until this Christmas to give it another shot. Were the one’s you guys smoked aged at all?
Awesome review gentlemen. I especially loved the Brian Easter Egg Thurmbs Up approval PIP there at the end LOL!!!!!! Excellent touch!!!
Wow, Ed seemed really happy through out the whole video lol even before he started smoking, hes the man!
As usual, you guys rock and great review! im so glad u guys like this Vitola and Opus X, is one of my favorites 🙂
what a perfect ending too … @Brian LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nope, I kept them about a week and that’s all. I was suprised at how great of a smoke it was!
Dave and Dennis – It takes a lot to get the Brian thumbs up to scroll across the screen 😉
Joel and everyone – thanks for the comments. I’m glad this Opus X went well. But never mind this review… what about the great contest SR is running now. Good times.
I saw this last week before heading on vacation – my mouth was watering.. Then, while on vaca – I found a B&M with xXx & petite lanceros – at recomended retail instead of the super inflated price at my locals & online. I have had two of the xXx’s & WoW they were good! In between I had a PL – good too, but don’t be fooled buy the name – this nearly knocked me out – It burned for a long time & was STRONG. Maybe it was from earlier prod – When they were stronger? I don’t know – I’m a first time Opus- smoker, but now I’m hooked! I went back & got as many as I could afford.
