Have you ever smoked a shark? I smoked an Anejo shark and the burn was terrible on it until I got past the box press. A very cool looking cigar, but seemed to me like more of a novelty thing (at least with my experience with the Anejo). I'm sure the Opus is big bucks

I've smoked one and still have one or two, along with lots of Anejo Sharks. I wouldn't go out and pay the crazy premiums they want for these, but they are extremely good cigars. They can go for $60+ on Opus and $25+ for Anejo, which is outta my zone. But for $12-15 for the Anejo and $20 or so for the Opus, worst cigars can be had for more for sure.

Never had a construction issue from any of them though...

They also came in the Fuente Charity two-pack a few years back with a Julius Caesar Shark I think.

I agree with not paying the premium price. Try Tampa Sweethearts. They don't charge crazy prices. I love the Anejo shark. I've probably smoked 10 in all the years I've been smoking cigars. You can even find boxes, if you know where to look. I don't chase Fuente candy anymore.

I’ve had mixed burns with the EotS but nothing terrible. MSRP is $15.50 which I’d pay. Good call on sweethearts I’ll give them a look.

In tge past you had to call for anejos. That and you also had to buy something else. Didn't mind it much, because I love the Cuesta Rey sungrowns.

Anejos aren't rare anymore, though they used to be. Can find them in a lot of places most of the year round. I agree that Sharks can burn wonky sometimes. Ge the No. 55 size. Similar sized cigar but round and a much better burn

Love the Anejo's and I have never had burn issues with the Sharks...I am not sure the extra $$$ is worth it...except you can wow everyone when you show and tell...But not so sure that is worth the price either...LOL That said...I will happily accept any and all Anejo Sharks anyone wants to give me...LMAO Defintely would not kick them out of the humidor...LOL
