Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro (First Impressions)

Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro OroAs the minutes ticked by I found myself stuck. My notes weren’t ready for a Week In Smoke, and I didn’t feel motivated enough to do one of the reviews I planned for this week. But I really wanted to try one of my Fuente Fuente OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oros, a late Christmas present to myself. Ordinarily I’d let these cigars sit for a while, but recent experience has indicated that the OpusX is often ready to go, right off the truck. And as long as I’m lighting up something as interesting as a limited edition OpusX, I might as well flip the switch on the camera.

The OpusX Rosado Oscuro Oro comes in a big, bright yellow box that contains fifteen cigars with yellow (well, gold, perhaps) footbands. There are five different vitolas in each box, and since you’re clever, you anticipated that I’m about to say there are three of each vitola. The list: Perfecxion #4 (5 1/8 x 43), Robusto (5 ¼ x 50), Fuente Fuente (5 5/8 x 46), Perfecxion X (6 ¼ x 48), Reserve D’Chateau (7 x 48).

As I looked around the internet to double check my information for accuracy, I noticed most of the reviews I saw were for the smallest size, the Perfecxion #4. I can see why, it’s a great size and it’s also the least expensive, if you were to buy them a stick at a time. But I found the Fuente Fuente more appealing as the looked through the assortment. I love a shorter smoke, but for once, I have a little time to burn. Click play on the video below to see if I chose wisely.

  1. Brian, nice review.
    They are still available from Anthony’s for a slight mark-up at $750 ?
    I was lucky enough to stumble onto them at my local B&M, but haven’t picked one up yet. They’ve been resting for several weeks, so it may be time to try it out.

    It’s interesting how each of the relatively few reviews found something different in the cigar. They were all pretty positive overall, with caveats. I’m thinking that time will be good to this cigar.

  2. That question mark after $750 was actually a little yellow face with a huge open mouth and x’ed out eyes.

  3. Maybe its just me but fuente is starting to price themselves out of the market with almost all of there hard to find or limited product. Quality had taken a dive. I cant remember the last good opus i had. To many very good smokes on the market for half the price that are readily available.
    There not the only ones but to me they ate there.

    1. The regular Opus of the past few years have been good right off the truck. When you find them for around MSRP they’re actually not a bad deal, at least for the smaller sizes. It all depends on how much a given shop decides to mark them up.

  4. John, that’s great! Enjoy them. I was lucky that way, too. Got them at MSRP. It was my very lucky day. I haven’t tried one yet, so I’d like to know what you think.
