Review Notes: Like it or not, the Fuente Fuente OpusX line of cigars is one of the most sought after in the USA. The Dominican puro has had endless coverage since its introduction in the mid 1990's; some of it bad and some of it good. Some people think this cigar is overrated. I do not. The PerfecXion A is the largest size in the lineup, a monster smoke that took me no less than 2.5 hours to complete. The burn and ash were perfect; not flaky in the least (which can be a problem in the OpusX cigars). Flavor was out of this world. Perhaps the most complex of all the cigars I've ever smoked with a beautiful aroma that simply must be experienced. There is a fruity spiciness to it and has medium-full stength. By the end, you can have a serious buzz if not from the blend, just from the sheer length of the beast. It is important to note that the larger sizes in the OpusX series are the milder cigars, the Double Corona and this A for example. Whereas the smaller ones, Petit Lancero and #5, are extremely powerful; very in-your-face flavor and strength. It really comes down to which style you prefer. For me, the blend of the PerfecXion A suits me well. It is my favorite cigar to date that I reserve for special occasions. While the coffin case is nice for presentation, it really adds no value to the cigar smoking experience and prevents inspection of the stick before purchase. The price could perhaps be a few dollars less if the coffin were removed from the equation. Of course, most of the expense in this cigar comes from requiring such a large wrapper leaf. In my opinion, the OpusX As are wrapped with leaves with fewer veins than the rest of the line. I recommend this cigar for a special occasion due to its size and cost.
