Default Opus X Rubusto -- Picture Review -- 50 pix

My First Opus X!

Size: 5 1/4 x 50
Cigar Shape: Robusto
Cigar Filler: Dominican Republic
Cigar Binder: Dominican Republic
Cigar Wrapper: Dominican Republic


Smoking Time: 50 minutes
Flavor: Super Duper rich and smooth

The unlit aroma was soft yet spicey. The unlit Draw was complex (is that possible for an unlit cigar?). The flavor started out quite beautifully. The cigar changed flavor/taste 3 times and burned nice and hot even with the longer ash. I noticed a nice smooth woodsy flavor, that then modified into a super rich smooth unexplainable blend of leathery goodness. The cigar ended very hot and the roof of my mouth and tounge were engulfed with a very thick creamy "sensation"

The cigar was extremely consistent and the draw was exactly what i desire (a little on the loose side).

There are alot of pics from the same "point in time"... please enjoy, i know i did!

I usually write a longer reviews. But i wanted to make this one different.

Now i'm hooked.... BTW.

you know, alot of people say opus are a great cigar, some even say that the inflated prices are worthy of the stick it beholds..

I say this. The smoke was one of the most tasty i've had to date, and the aftertaste is by far the best lingering smooth flavor i've ever had (1 hour later)

Deff worth the 14.00 bucks. not worth 25.00 (like some people pay)

Trust me, you can't go wrong with a palio. I used several cutters untill Conch Republican gave me a palio, never used another cutter before. And they are shaped to be a cigarholder too, no more balancing the cigar on your lighter. Works as a charm.

Agreed!

A picture is worth a 1000 words, but the review was well done too!
