Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son Score 95%

Quick Cigar Review: Arturo Fuente | Opus X 20th Anniversary Father & Son

This cigar was so much better after a couple months of rest. When I first smoked it, I knew it was good, but not as special as I hoped. This time it was special. This 20th Anniversary Opus is nothing like the regular opus. It is medium bodied and nuanced, not in your face strength. The construction was almost perfect and the flavors were balanced. I only look forward to how this will age years on. Definitely recommend if you can find them.

Quick Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf Robusto Score 93%

Quick Cigar Review: AJ Fernandez Enclave Broadleaf Robusto

This was an excellent cigar, really a solid broadleaf. I am surprised how much this didn’t taste like the regular Enclave, but broadleaf does tend to take over the flavor of a cigar when wrapped. The draw was snug but very good and the burn was average. I would put this as one of the better broadleaf offerings of AJ Fernandez, which is saying a lot because he makes a lot. I’m excited to see how these score in blind review, and I would suggest trying them when it comes out.
