Cigar Aficionado's #6 Cigar of 2014.
Perhaps the rarest and highest-rated brand in the world, OpusX has a world-renowned reputation for quality and class. It is full-bodied with a rich, robust flavor.
Fuente OpusX is one of the rarest cigars in the world. It is elusive to almost every enthusiast because of its limited production. Prior to 1990, the Dominican Republic was well-known for its filler and binder tobacco. Growing wrapper tobacco on the island proved impossible due to the topography of the land and wind. The wrapper is a vital component of any cigar as it contributes to most of the flavor. Carlos Fuente Jr. set out on a mission to be the first cigar maker in the Dominican Republic to successfully grow wrapper tobacco. With the help of cheesecloths to protect the tobacco from the elements, the first successful crop was turned out in 1992. This wrapper is matched with unparalleled vintage tobaccos for its filler and binder, and was the first Dominican puro (it only contains tobaccos grown in the Dominican Republic) on the market.
OpusX was an overnight success. It consistently receives the highest ratings from industry publications, and continues to be the pinnacle of fine cigars. Almost impossible to find, this cigar is widely considered the “best of the best." It is full-bodied and the aromas in each size are distinctly different, but the one characteristic each has in common is near perfect taste and quality. Nowhere in the world can a finer cigar be found. This cigar is referred to by aficionados as “an expensive addiction” because once this cigar makes its way into your humidor, you will never look at cigars the same way again.
Due to the exclusivity of this cigar and in an effort to make them available to a greater number of people, we limit purchases to 3 cigars per order. If you are interested in more than 3 cigars, please call a cigar specialist at 800.357.9800 to check availability.
Honestly, I can't expound on your review or video. It was a great smoke and lasted along time (Hence, the d bl) and have repeated my order. Yes, they cost more, but you get what you pay for.

My stick was perfectly rolled and tasty. Definitely has a distinct flavor :-). I'm not sure it justifies the price tag, my favorite cigar is still My Father's Flor de las Antillas, but these are a great "once in a while" treat.
