The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2009
Fuente Fuente OpusX Reserva D'Chateau
Fuente Fuente OpusX is one of the most talked about, written about and sought after brands in modern cigar history. Since its inception the brand has continued to earn the fanfare with quality and consistency—they are extraordinary cigars and frequent visitors to our top 25 list. (The OpusX Double Corona was our No. 1 cigar of 2005.) The Reserva D’Chateau is a classic Churchill size, blended to the tastes of Carlos Fuente Jr., who likes his cigars strong, spicy and resonant. This cigar doesn’t disappoint. It immediately comes on strong with coffee notes and a powerful leathery flavor that refuses to leave the palate. This is the fourth Fuente-made cigar on our Top 25 list.
