This 5.1×50 maduro stick offers a blend similar to the OpusX inside it’s dark chocolate brown wrapper. The pack is very firm and dense, typical of a Fuente. The first draws provided a big pepper kick, medium-full body and rich flavors of coffee, earth and wood on the long finish. The finish stayed long throughout, changing to leather and nuts with the pepper coming and going but never as strong as the very start. Overall flavors transitioned a few times to leather, wood, nuts, hints of caramel – always staying very rich smooth and satisfying. The burn was very good, draw was excellent and the ash stayed straight and tight all the way down. Thank you very much to CigarsDirect.com for generously donating this stick for review, it’s greatly appreciated!
