Anyone know what the difference is between Fuente Anejo Reserva and Fuente Anejo Reserva Extra Viejo? I searched online and found references to extra viejo rum, but nothing on the cigars. My guess is that the Fuente extra viejo wrapper is fermented in an extra viejo barrel. Makes sense, but does anyone know fo sho?

This is what I've read...
DESCRIPTION
A. Fuente Añejo cigars are made with the same filler and binder as the OpusX cigars and are just about as hard to find, too, except they're wrapped in a dark, oily U.S. Connecticut broadleaf Maduro leaf that's aged for one full year in oak cognac barrels....not really any difference from the marketing and adding the word "extra".....same cigar more advertising/marketing. I've had both many times and it's the same cigar....whoever sells them at a better price is what I buy....JMHO
