Arturo Fuente Opus X Cigar Series

Arturo Fuente Opus X

The Fuente Fuente Opus X cigars are the premiere cigar line in the Arturo Fuente brand. These cigars are highly renowned by cigar smokers around the world. The Fuente Family typically releases these cigars a few times a year in very limited quantities.

What makes OpusX cigars rare and unique? Historically, before 1990, it was nearly impossible to grow a consistent wrapper in the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic is mostly known for its binder and fillers, but due to the topography and the wind in the Dominican, wrapper tobacco was nearly impossible to grow.

Carlos Fuente Jr. set out on a mission to successfully try to grow wrapper tobacco in the Dominican Republic. With millions invested and the use of shade tents, his first successful crop turned out in 1992 and the line of Arturo Fuente OpusX Cigars were born.

This Domincan grown wrapper are grown in the Chateau de la Fuente plantation in a tropic river valley in the Dominican Republic. The Arturo Fuente Opus X cigars can be identified for their Dominican-shade wrappers, which tend to be reddish-brown & oily and are matched with Dominican-grown tobaccos for its filler and binder and was the first Dominican puro on the market (100 percent Dominican tobacco - wrapper, binder, and filler).

Arturo Fuente Opus X cigar line consistently receives high ratings from industry publications. Fuente Opus X cigars are full bodied cigars and although strong, are not overpowering. They are very smooth cigars that can be described as small hint of spice, with a rich and robust flavor.

Arturo Fuente Anejo Cigars

The line of Arturo Fuente Anejo cigars came into existence after Hurricane George ripped through the Carribbean in September of 1998 and caused widespread destruction. Many crops were damaged in the Dominican Republic and among the damaged crops were the wrapper leaves for the Fuente Opus X line, which is grown and harvested at the plantation of Chateu de la Fuente.

The result of that hurricane made for a shortage of Opus X wrappers for the 2000 year. Instead of halting production, Carlos Fuente Jr made the decision to go with a different wrapper, an aged Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro and for the filler he added a blend of Opus X, Don Carlos, and Hemingway filler.

Anejo is Spanish for "Aged refined." Anejo cigars are rolled with aged 5-year-old Connecticut broadleaf maduro wrappers that have been aged in Cognac barrels. (The original release used wrappers aged for seven years, hence the name Anejo, meaning aged.) Arturo Fuente Anejo cigars feature the very best Dominican filler and binder from Chateau de la Fuente plantation, and are medium to full-bodied smokes that yields rich, spicy, and sweet flavors.

The line of Anejo cigars are typically only available around Fathers Day and Christmas and are one of the hardest to find. While this line features several different sizes, it is also has one of the world's most famous shapes, the No. 77 or also known as the "Shark". The Fuente Anejo Shark was the first torpedo shaped cigar ever rolled that progresses from a rounded parejo shape to a square press, this Anejo cigar is particularly rare.

Brief History of Aruturo Fuente Cigars

The Fuente family's cigar roots trace back to Cuba, where Arturo Fuente learned how to cultivate tobacco and manufacture hand-made cigars from his father.

After moving to the United States, Arturo Fuente started a small cigar factory in 1912 at the back of the Fuente family's home in Ybor City, located in Tampa, Florida. In 1924, Arturo lost his business when it was destroyed by fire.

In the 1940s, Arturo Fuente began his cigar business again from the back of his home located in Ybor City. His business flourished and he moved to a two-story factory during the mid 1950s. During this time Arturo Fuente son, Carlos Sr, acquired the busines from his father.

The 1970s was a period of economical and industrial challenges, which caused the company to look abroad. In the 1970s, it established a factory in Nicaragua, though it ceased production there when its factory was burned by fire. They soon relocated to Hondorus and two months after relocating to Honduras, its factory was once again destroyed by fire.

After a brief stint producing cigars in Tampa, Florida again, Carlos Sr and his son Carols Jr, moved to the Dominican Republic in the 1980s and establish a small cigar operation employing seven workers. Today, "Tabacalera A.Fuente y Compania" has grown to 6 factories 4 plantations that has around 2,500 employees and makes over 30 million cigars a year from their factory's location in Santiago, Dominican Republic.
