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

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.
