Default Can someone tell me about Casa Fuente Cigars?

My Sgt. just came back from Vegas and dropped a Casa Fuente on me from the shop in Ceasar's Palace, is it a house blend for the shop? Thanks

Those are a better Opus in my opinion! They are a blend just rolled for their shop there and sometimes they have them for special events around the country. That is rare though.

I have a box of robustos and a box of corona gordas from my last 2 trips to Vegas. I ration them out as they are that yummy!!!!

Sweet, thanks Eric, this is a Corona Gordo I guess, bigger than a robusto, looks like a toro, cedar wrapped with an orange ribbon on the foot

Yes that's it! They are a super premium just like you would consider Opus and just as if not more expensive!

I'm with Eric...far better than the Opus IMHO. First one I had tasted like fresh cream...

They are pretty amazing smokes if you enjoy the Fuente profile. They are worth the splurge at 20-100 bucks a stick for the experience but I don't know about revisiting them regularly. I tend to buy one to two a year to either smoke or gift to those who REALLY enjoy the Opus and Fuente lines.

Very cool, I do like alot of the Fuente line and did like the one Opus I had, looking forward to this, pretty nice gesture from my boss, he said he smoked a few while in Vegas

When I go to Vegas I always have to stop into Casa Fuente and enjoy the ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL women in cheese cloth serving me Mojitos and lighting my cigars. The experience alone is worth the trip, the smokes are just an added bonus.

The Casa Fuente cigars are very good, not my taste anymore, but well worth a try.

They are Opus X binder and filler with a Cammie wrapper...the wrapper lightens and sweetens up the profile quite a bit (depending on vitola) and they are usually more creamy as well...

I prefer just about any CF to the same Opus X Vitola...

They are horrible cigars. I will give you 5 Macanudos for your 1 Casa Fuente, just to save you from smoking such a bad cigar.

Same here. I have been to Vegas a few times.. All before I got into cigars. Never even seen the place. I do need to get there.

Come down to Medford, catch a flight from Allegiant for cheap.. Lets go!

I agree with you that they are better than an Opus. I too have a box of the robustos and corona gordas from my last trip to Vegas and also ration them as I will probably never have the opportunity to go there again. Yes they are "that yummy".
