Arturo Fuente MagnumR Rosado Sungrown Review

The Label Factor:

It’s amazing what a small color change can do for a label. When I reviewed the Arturo Fuente Short Story Maduro, I ragged on the design being similar to all other Arturo Fuente sticks out there.

Opus X XXX Belicoso Review

The Label Factor:

This is it.  This is the one label to rule them all.  When I dream about cigars, this is the label I see.  Maybe it’s the reputation this cigar has or the hype surrounding it, but in my opinion, the Opus X line has THE quintessential cigar label.
