I have been accused of being a girl for not smoke my BBMF
because of where I got mine, so Andrew here you go. I was
gifted one when I was at the A Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic. I first heard of
these from a friend in 04, and was told the only way to get one was if
Carlito gave you on out of his pocket. My first BBMF came from Carlito's
personal humidor. As you
can see it was a beautiful stick. The wrapper was a rosado red, very oily
in sheen and to the touch. I love the look from the cap to the maduro toe.
Country: Dominican Republic
Length/Ring: 7 x 56
Shape: Salomon Vitola
Wrapper: Opus X Rosado Wrapper
Filler: Opus X blend
I clipped the cap and took a dry draw to reveal a smooth creamy draw before
even lighting it up. I had made a promise to Marco Polo to use my pig
lighter for this and so I did.
As I lit my cigar and I had my first taste revealing a slightly creamy but
spicy flavor. The burn was even at first, then it needed a slight touch
up. The ash was very light gray and firm. As I progressed into the first
third, I started to get the strength of this stick. The flavor took on a
slight coffee flavor.
Entering the second third, I was amazed at the spice on my tongue and an
awesome woody flavor came into play.
Entering the third part, the ash finally fell off. It was already an hour
and I had a third to go. It mellowed out a little and took on a little
toffee flavor. The finish was very nice.
It seemed to me like a cross between a Chili Pepper and a xXx Power
Ranger. If you like Opus,
you won't be disappointed. If only for the name, try one.
