Arturo Fuente Fuente OpusX

    Characteristics The first all-Dominican puro, every shape smokes with a consistently rich, meaty flavor, right down to the band. They are aged for two years or more. Insider's Tip These cigars are extremely rare and normally sell for well above their suggested retail prices. Only the very best rollers are permitted to make the OpusX, and a separate OpusX room, reserved solely for the creation of these cigars, has been set aside at the Santiago factory. There are more than 10 sizes, but special shapes are created to be auctioned off at charities, where they often bring hundreds and even thousands of dollars each. This is one cigar you definitely want to leave the band on. Our favorite shape is the 6 3/8 x 52 Perfecxion No. 2. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes
