Opus X BBMF 2007

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.

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.
