Opus X Angel's Share Fuente Fuente features three ultra premium cigars in an attractive case. The cigars are Dominican puros utilizing a proprietary blend of Dominican tobacco fillers and binder. What makes this cigar so incredible is the use of a Dominican Sun Grown leaf wrapper grown at the Chateau de la Fuente plantation, a rich fertile river valley with rough terrain. The flavors in this blend are complex, featuring earthy cedar notes with hints of leather with a sweet finish lased with the flavor of whiskey. The Opus X blends are considered by cigar experts to be one of the best in the entire industry. These extremely rare and exclusive cigars are limited production causing them to sell out quickly. The Opus X Angel's ShareFuente Fuente contains three full flavored cigars measuring 5 3/5 x 46.

The terminology “Angel’s Share” is used in the wine making process. When wine ages for long periods of time, some of it will evaporate which creates “Angel’s Share”. It suggests the belief that guardian angels that will watch over the wine, sample it and give their blessings. The Fuente family lost so much priceless, aged tobacco during the fire in 2012, the inspiration for this cigar came from that exact term. It is implied that the Angels enjoyed the alluring aroma from the tobacco that burned in the warehouses, but in turn, gave their blessings to the Fuente family for future successful endeavors.

Tasting Notes

Fuente Fuente Opus X

Tasting Notes

My #5 is a beautiful, tightly packed 4.8 by 40 stick. It is quite small. So, I will do the review in two sections. The wrapper is smooth, quite oily (almost sticky) with minimal veins. There are pungent notes of cedar, citrus, and spice on the shaft and foot. The triple cap is flawlessly applied. Actually, I couldn't even see the seams without gawking.
The cold draw gave off notes of earthy tobacco with a hint of sweet fruit.

First Half

My #5 opens with a peppery kick, lots of smoke output, and a rich, creamy base. The pepper is not the hot kind, but rather a warm spicy miasma with underlying cedar, leather, and rich tobacco flavors. And the finish! The finish is long, way longer than I have had in a long time. It is sweet and cedary with creamy coffee notes, fleeting baking spice notes (or was it cinnamon), and a robust tobacco and leather base.

This cigar is complex! The flavors don't just stick out or starkly transition from one to the other. Instead, they wash over your palate with wave after wave of different notes blended into one beautiful profile. The smoke is thick, chewy, and aromatic. It smells like cedar and flowers. The ash is a tightly packed white and light-grey combo that held up to 2 inches.

Final Half

On the halfway mark, the creamy profile thickened. Also, the strength went up from a medium in the first half to full. I can feel the nicotine in my head though it's not the kind that knocks you upside the head. The pepper recedes to the back while earth, leather, spice, and sweet tobacco dominate the palate. Still, the finish is quite long with very thick creamy coffee notes and spice lingering until the next draw.

Towards the nub, the strength kicks up a notch. The flavor profile remains the same. And by the same, I mean thoroughly complex and enjoyable. Mine was a one-hour smoke. I know, right? It is a real slow burner and very satisfying. You may want to eat first before taking on this little stogie, or your knees will buckle halfway down the smoke.

Overall Review

Opus X Perfecxion No. 5 Pack

The Opus X cigars are definitely worth the hype. Even though opinions vary, we can all agree this is a complex smoke that is excellently constructed and executed. I have to point out, though, that you may not enjoy this cigar as much when it's new. Aging these babies adds tons of complexity and mellows out the pepper and spice.

The result is a mature and captivating warm cedar-infused cinnamon comingled with leather, coffee bean, nutmeg, cocoa, and a myriad of other amazing flavors. Also, be sure to grab these whenever they are in stock. Opus X cigars are notoriously rare, mainly because only about 700,000 of these babies go into the market every year.
