A rare offering from Fuente. Limited Edition 2019, Journey to Chateau de la Fuente.
Rolled with a Dominican wrapper grown in only one vintage harvest year, this special edition OpusX is available in only a handful of sizes, with only 500 boxes shipped per year.
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 the 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.
The Opus X Lost City was made with rare tobaccos grown on Chateau de la Fuente during the off-season for crop production - tobaccos that have been aging for 5 years prior to production. Made with 100% Dominican-grown tobaccos, this Puro features dark Dominican wrappers and an eventful blend of Dominican long-fillers. The result is a bold, creamy smoke with robust flavors delivered in a mellow, and smooth fashion complemented by a deep, cedary aroma.
Fuente Fuente Opus X Lost City received a well-deserved 93-rating , noting: "An earthisness emerges along with notes of caramel and almond. Complex and delicious."
