Cigar Review: Fuente Fuente Opus X Forbidden X 2014

Initial Thoughts:

When I joined the Cigar Rights of America in 2018, I received a bundle of cigars in return. In that bundle was the Fuente Fuente Opus X Forbidden X, a cigar that's as elusive and rare as they come. After storing the cigar in my personal humidor for over a year, I thought it time to bust it out, light it up, and review it.

At first, the punch draw was really nice and the flavors started out smooth and tasty. However, from the very first light, the burn was uneven. I hope it gets better and the burn evens out. The wrapper is quite rustic, and there's a thick vein running down the length of the cigar.

Final Thoughts:

From the first puff, the Fuente Fuente Opus X Forbidden X had a bad burn. While the flavors were good, the cigar was hard to enjoy because of massive coning and terrible canoeing. Arturo Fuente typically makes really good cigars what are well-made, but this Opus X was not one of them. However, the draw was consistent and I could taste really nice flavors coming through the stick.

Even though I enjoyed the cigar, I can't justify a CigareScore of anything higher than a 3. I would maybe smoke this cigar again, but I cannot recommend the Fuente Fuente Opus X Forbidden X to you, especially since there are better cigars for 1/2 to 1/3 of the price of this one. If you're looking to buy a nice cigar, make sure you're paying for quality, not false exclusivity.
