Cigar Review: Fuente Fuente Opus X The Lost City 2017 Robusto

Initial Thoughts:

Oh boy, am I excited to smoke the Fuente Fuente Opus X The Lost City! I got this cigar from the Luxury Cigar Club a few months ago, and I've been chomping at the bit to enjoy this cigar.

So, on a beautiful Boston day, I decided it was time. The Opus X Lost City lit easily and was delicious from the first puff. The flavors were mild but rich, and I liked them immediately.

Final Thoughts:

After only getting to enjoy the Fuente Fuente Opus X The Lost City for just over 60 minutes, I was left a little disappointed. I know robustos aren't going to last as long as a toro would, but for $30, this cigar should have lasted just a little longer.

The flavors of The Lost City were quite delicious. The dry draw had hints of cinnamon, but those gave way to a sweet, leathery taste I really enjoyed. The burn, while never perfectly even, had no major issues, and the draw only got tighter during the final third of the smoke. However, after I turned the camera off after my final thoughts, a crack in the wrapper did show up.

While the flavors were good, I don't know that they were $30 for 60 minutes good. And because I don't know if I'd recommend the Fuente Fuente Opus X The Lost City for anything other than a special occasion, I must give it a CigarScore of 4.

The CigarScore Rating System Explained


  1. I have tried an Opus X once and liked it really liked the complexity. Holding on to one for over a year to see how it changes.

  2. I was gifts a box of the lanceros a few years ago and have to say I was disappointed based on all of the hype… taste was OK, but was expecting more… not to mention all of the 10 in the box ended up kicking off sap about half way into the smoke taking away most of the enjoyment… wouldn’t have been happy with that on a box of $8 sticks, let alone at this price point… for the money, I would go with Atabey every day…

  3. Enjoying the flavor of a Lost City at this very moment. Kind of surprised and disappointed that the burn is a pretty major canoe that will not correct. Otherwise, quite nice but expect a better burn at this price point and with the reputation.
