Tasting Note
Cigars made by the Fuentes have a strong track record on Cigar Aficionado's Top 25, particularly the Fuente Fuente OpusX—the Double Corona was Cigar of the Year in 2005. The Super Belicoso is a short, squat figurado with a gorgeous wrapper grown on Chateau de la Fuente, the palatial Fuente tobacco plantation located in El Caribe, Dominican Republic. The cigar is among the world's best full-flavored cigars, robust and leathery, with a strong backbone of spice leading to a complex and bold flavor.

A good-looking cigar with a gorgeous wrapper. Notes of leather, strong spice and earthiness build a solid back- bone of complex and bold flavor.

An oily torpedo that is strong an peppery, but complex with leather, earth and tobacco notes that resonate on the finish. Full bodied and rich.

A smooth, well-made figurado with an even draw and fine burn. It has earth and cedar notes, and packs a considerable punch.

A beautifully made cigar. It has an uneven burn and a slightly tight draw. It's very spicy, with some earthy, barnyard notes. Strong, but monodimensional.
