In 2013, there were rumors of a new cigar blended by Carlos Fuente Sr. that never materialize into much of anything. We got in a couple boxes of one size and that was it. I was bummed because these cigars were great! Medium bodied, full flavored, and a finish that lasted for hours. Little was known about the blend but if you know Carlito or his father, Carlos Sr., this is not out of the ordinary. Unlike Opus X or any of the their other lines, the Fuente name is nowhere to be found on the packaging. You will know it’s a Fuente just by the flawless construction. These smoke like a dream.
Good news. They are finally in stock. All four sizes. A corona, robosto, robusto extra, and toro make up this highly coveted line. Both the Acton and Marlboro store have these in stock. So far, the reviews have been excellent. It looks like the Fuentes have hit it out the the park. Again.
If you are having a difficult time sourcing Opus X cigars by Arturo Fuente, stop in Acton or Marlboro Wine and Spirit Co. We recently received a shipment of the 3 pack tins. All three sizes are available in both stores.
Opus X Robusto 5 1/4″ x 50 Ring Gauge$52.95+tax
Opus X Perfexcion X 6 1/4″ x 48 Ring Gauge $ 55.95+tax
Opus X Reserva D’Chateau 7″ x 48 Ring Gauge $59.95+tax
The J.C. Newman & Fuente families believe in giving back. Every year since 2003, a special set of cigars have been released and 100% of the proceeds go back to families in the Dominican Republic. Both of these cigars have not been released until now. The Diamond Crown Black Diamond & Arturo Fuente Destino al Siglo Anniversario Torpedo, both measure 6.5″ x 52 ring gauge, exemplify the elegance and finesse of the finest tobaccos of the Dominican Republic. Only 7500 coffins were made and they are in both stores now!!! $50+tax.
