Quick Review: Fuente Fuente Opus X Double Corona

Flavor impressions: Solid, rich smoke. Clear butterscotch overtones to the flavor. Light spice.

While in Las Vegas, I purchased a Fuente Fuente Opus X Double Corona from the Casa Fuente store at the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace. This was my second stick in the line (they aren’t sold anywhere I can find in West Michigan) and my impression is favorable.

The Double Corona measures a hefty 7-5/8 inches with a 49 ring gauge. The construction was outstanding and the cigar lit easily with simple wood matches.

I smoked about 2/3 of the stick — it was one more thing to keep in my hand while gambling throughout the downtown casinos.

Flavor impressions: Solid, rich smoke. Clear butterscotch overtones to the flavor. Light spice.

I’d absolutely smoke another.
