Fuente Fuente Opus X XXX Belicoso Cigar Review

This 5 5/8×49 cigar otherwise known as the Power Ranger, or Triple X, or X3, features a dark brown firm and smooth wrapper with a mottled splotchy appearance, minimal veins, tight seams, even construction and a soft perfume like aroma.  First light reveals a perfect draw, tons of full bodied smoke with very dry black pepper and tobacco flavors with an extremely long dry finish.  You need a drink with this smoke.15 minutes in, the body is way down for an Opus X, to a solid medium while the strength is full on.  It’s had a bad burn to this point, with  almost an inch difference side to side and at this point needs a relight. Definitely strange for any Opus X.  40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the flavors finally pick up a bit, adding a smooth coffee to the mix, although still very mild for an Opus X at a medium level.  Burn since the relight has been just ok, needing more puffs than the usual cigar to burn properly.  The ash is equally unimpressive flaking quite a bit and dropping off every 1/2 inch.  50 minutes in starting the last third, it needs another full relight.  It simply does not like to stay burning and goes out on it’s own.  It’s not tunneling or burning lopsided, it just simply goes out.  There has been no flavor transition since the last update point.  Ending at 1:20 where it went out completely again with 1 1/2″ or so remaining there were no further changes.  Thank you very much to viewer HappyTaro for generously sending this for review!
