When the Fuente Fuente Opus X Fuente Fuente Corona Extra/Lonsdale was introduced in 1995, it revolutionized the Dominican cigar industry. Nestled in the valley of El Cibao, Dominican Republic, lies Chateau de la Fuente, home to the most sought-after cigar of our time, the coveted Opus X. The mineral-rich soils of the Dominican Republic, once deemed unsuitable for wrapper tobacco, had never met with the efforts, intuition, and creativity of Carlos “Carlitos” Fuente. He was determined to prove that the Dominican Republic could produce a wrapper tobacco that was just as good, if not better, than the Cuban wrappers that were the gold standard at the time. The Opus X Fuente Fuente Corona Extra/Lonsdale was the culmination of years of hard work and dedication. It is a full-bodied cigar with complex flavors of leather, earth, and spice. It is also a very well-made cigar, with a smooth draw and a consistent burn.
The Opus X Fuente Fuente Corona Extra/Lonsdale was an instant success. It was praised by critics and smokers alike for its rich flavor and smooth smoke. It also helped to put Dominican cigars on the map. Today, the Opus X is one of the most sought-after cigars in the world, and it is a testament to the skill and craftsmanship of the Fuente family.
