Casa Fuente Corona Gorda
First off let me say this cigar was a surprisingly good cigar I tend to be a little hard on Fuente smokers mostly because in my opinion they are alot of hype and a very little amount of actual value. A little background on this cigar, to the best of my knowledge they can only be gotten in Fuente shops, I purchased this one on a trip to Vegas earlier this year. They are an Opus X with a Cameroon wrapper. Let me tell you if they could make every opus like this id buy boxes of them. The first benefit to this cigar over a normal Opus is the wrapper itself. Cameroon wrappers stay lit which to me is the exact opposite of the normal Opus with out age. It also gives a wonderfully hazelnuty finish to the cigar that is not present on a normal production opus. This stick had a wonderful sharp burn to it that didn’t require me to touch it up almost at all. It had a great draw and was amazingly flavorful through the nose. The flavor most present in it would have to be a nutty cedar note that i have really never had in any other cigar. For anyone that really wants to argue the amount of the taste that comes from the wrapper i would beg you to smoke one of these and then smoke an opus. You will be able to tell how much the wrapper really makes the cigar. I would have to put this cigar in the top 5 or so Non-cubans that i have ever smoked.
