Well, I purchased the no.4 really not expecting a lot. I mean, I ve purchased a lot of cigars that were rated extremely high and I ve been let down. The Maximus no. 4 delivered! WOW! I know - I know, these are not cheap cigars be any sense of the imagination but if you are a fan of medium - full strength cigars, please do yourself a favor ONCE! Honestly, this cigar will not disappoint you. One blemish in the burn on the 1st third. Once corrected, this cigar was amazing. I nubbed it and was tempted to eat what was left. Not really but man was this a great smoke. Try it one time and then - thank me! Loved it and I m looking forward to the next one. BTW - the draw was impeccable and the flavor profiles are beyond good. As a matter of fact - if you ever say this cigar is good - you didn t smoke a real maximus. These are amazing!
Best I have had in a while
If your a fan of Fuente Opus X,this is your cigar.. .. always available and at a better price.
You just can not go wrong with a cigar designed by Newman and Carlos Fuente, and they did not. Strong draw, lots of smoke, great even burn, wonderful taste and texture. Like any great cigar, they are even better after some time in the humidor. Only wish they cost less.
You can tell when the Fuentes make a special cigar. The Maximus #1 is a beautiful big cigar, great burn throughout, perfect draw, and a wonderful taste, consistent from start to finish. A very nice way to spend the better part of an hour.
The less wealthy man s Fuente Fuente Opus XAwesome cigar. This and My Father are my favorites
I used to smoke Cubans and OpusX. This cigar beats them all. While around $17-$18 per stick, it s consistently high quality in taste, appearance, draw, construction! Starts with a bit mild pepper and nut/almond flavor, as it burns becomes more almond/nutty and leather. I hate spicy cigars, so the initial pepper is minor and goes away or I wouldn t smoke them.
Rich and smooth. Just a wonderful stick! Is the price worth it? Probably a matter of personal preference. Found it enjoyable. Something to splurge on for the holiday s or a special occasion.
This was the absolute best cigar that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing! I was given a sample to try, and I wish I would have been given more because I could smoke this cigar every day of the year. Wonderful experience!!!
Absolutely perfect cigar! This cigar may be the finest example of what a cigar should be ever created. Our friend who was gifted one, and threw it in his fire should have given it some time in his humidor. The only reason this cigar wouldn't "wow" any cigar smoker is that it was improperly stored. Otherwise, he should stick to smoking Gurkah bundles and have a seat at the kiddie table. I have had may GREAT cigars and have yet to find one that exceeds its excellent complexity and balance. This cigar is perfect. Perfect.
