The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2010
Fuente Fuente OpusX XXX Belicoso
XXX Belicoso. X3. Power Ranger. X To The Third Power. No cigar has more names and nicknames than this short Fuente Fuente OpusX. However you ask for it, it’s a dynamite smoke, a complex powerhouse with full-bodied flavors of leather and earth. The finish has that essential sweetness found in the best of strong cigars, along with an intriguing note of Scotch whiskey on the finish. It’s quite the cigar. While it’s among the shortest of the Fuente Fuente OpusX line, it’s also one of the most powerful. The Fuente Fuente OpusX brand is among the most successful in history. The hallmark of this brand, first released in November 1995, is dark, oily and reddish-brown wrapper leaf grown under the shade at Chateau de la Fuente, a wrapper farm in El Caribe, Dominican Republic, owned by the Fuente family. This brand proved to the world that great wrapper could be grown in the Dominican Republic. If you love full-bodied cigars, this is your smoke.
