    I have one of these I am saving for the closing of my new house which will hopefully be in a week or so. I can’t wait. Nice review.

    I have a box of these beauties in my humidor. It doesn’t cost any more to travel “First Class”.

    I have tried to order from this company but I found it verd odd to put the credit card security number after the name. Usually on payment pages the card security number has a seperate box. It could be a coincidence but after I tried and failed to place an order I found that my credit card was completely drained of its limit buy consecutive withdrawals of $99.- each time 3 times a day. So beware.

    I just recently (last week) tried this cigar for the first time, and I was very impressed.

    I am purchasing them for approx. $11/ea. from a local tobacconist (albeit with a max. 2 per customer / per day limit) and at that price they are definitely a fantastic value.

    Very flavorful, strong and incredibly smooth cigar.

    I am very fortunate – like Petar, I have found these for $11.70 a pop at a local cigar shop and for that price I’ll smoke them all day long! The cheapest online price is almost 3x as much. Great smoke, very smooth and an explosion of rich flavors in my mouth.

    Just smoked one last weekend. It’s been in my humidor for around 6 months just waiting for the right time. I was very under-whelmed. No one in my area has these so when I ordered one online for the 3 times price everyone talked about I expected a great cigar. The taste was on point however the burn was all over the place and went out twice during my smoke. I very rarely have any of these happen to me so for my prized possession to do it, it really bummed me out. I’d be willing to try it again but no where close to the price I paid.

    My Review of the Fuente Opus X Super Belicoso

    I picked this up several years ago, and not being a HUGE Opus X fan, just figured I’d smoke it when I got around to it. I just got around to it. :)

    It did not want to light, which has been common with these Dominican wrappers, the seem to often have an asbestos like quality to them. The wrapper has a rich red color, and a very oily sheen. Squeezing it, it’s hard like a rock, but it draws just fine.

    The flavors are rich and oaky with a subtle sweetness. The aroma is tannic like a dry red wine. There is some acidity to the finish and pepper mingles in and out throughout the smoke.

    The strength of the cigar is strong as is the body, but the strength isn’t in your face like is is with a Corojo.

    Towards the end the flavors resemble that of a nice tawny port, sweet and oaky with coffee undertones.

    The cigar is a real slow burner, a result in my opinion, of the fire-fickleness of the wrapper, as it is so often unfazed by the flame that it simply puckers up and folds in on itself rather than burning. It makes sense that this cigar was stuffed with so much filler, otherwise the “guts” would burn waaay quicker than the wrapper.

    This was a nice cigar that aged respectably.
