Opus X - Prestone X review
I went to the link, WHAT IN GODS NAME DID THEY DO TO THAT CIGAR???????????????
Probably the best tasting cigar I ever smoked. I am not good with long drawn out reviews but I give it 100 out of 100 I just wish I could afford them all the time. You cant go wrong with this one. :smiley4:
Fuente Fuente Opus X
Ring Gauge 52 Length 6 3/8
Preflight Aroma= intriguing with a wood smell to it.
Burn= It has a streaky burn, but a cool slow burn.
Flavor= Complex to say the least. Lots of cedar and leather with a power undertone of salt.
Lots of nicotine it...
Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Robusto
Burn- nice and slow
Flavor- A medium body complex smooth smoke. Yet the first quarter was weak. I did not like it until I got to the middle. At the middle it started to explode with flavor. I have been smoking the...
Cusano 18 Robusto
Connecticut shade wrapper
Pre-light aroma = good
Burn= very good, Had a rather cool burn to it.
Flavor= smooth tobacco, could be described as creamy. The finish is the best part nice powerful. This is a smoke that did not have...
size 5.0" x 50 ring
Construction= very good
Flavor= I would consider this to be a mild smoke with a complex flavor to it. It has a consitent woody base, with undertones of pepper and spice. I tell ya what its a good stick with a...
Any thoughts on these? Worth the money?
Too many words are pointless. If you haven't tried one, take the opportunity when it arises. Best cigar I ever smoked.
OK, here goes... This is for the Olor Fuerte Magnum which is a 60 ring x 6" long stick (their biggest one). I got turned on to these by buying various samplers from Famous-Smoke.com, however, I started with their robusto size. They show up a lot in their samplers and miscellaneous freebies.
My retailer came back from the RTDA with Caballeros, a new cigar he was very impressed with. I bought a Churchill right away and smoked it and really didn't care for it. Then I smoked the robusto - this is why you should try the different sizes of a cigar as they can be very, very different.
Hey Guys...Can you list some MUST HAVES, cigars that are a must in the humidor.
I'm purchasing a couple more boxes before winter hits :smiley19: and need some suggestions !
Ashton VSG Corona Gorda
Very rich aroma
Smooth, a little oily
Dark, slightly reddish color
Good draw, easy but not too loose
When lighting it, I was surprised by the heaviness and spiciness(sp?) of it. For the first quarter/third of the cigar, it didn't seem too complex...
I just had a Partagas Black Robusto. It was very good, strong and with good flavor. I think I tasted strong chocolate and tobacco flavor. Burned pretty good most of the way down, but I needed to touch it up after about 2/3s of it. I would definately buy again.
I got a robusto in my pack I bought at the Oliva event I went to last month.
First, this is a small cigar, only about 4". Very tightly wrapped, I had suspicions the draw would be off but I was so wrong.
Lit very well. Burned great, until the very end when it got uneven. Very even, almost...
Wow! What a great f :smiley35: ing smoke!
Great bouquet, great draw, great burn, and lots of mouth watering spicy, woody, medium-full flavored smoke! The smoke looked great too! A perfect roll. Everything about this beauty was top notch! The wrapper was a dark brown, almost maduro. They...
These sticks rock! They have a nice sweet, spicy, cedary flavor. These and the Fire cigars are now my two favorites. Highly recommended! :smiley37:
Went to a nice barbeque today. I figured that I would take a good cigar with me something different. I rumaged through my singles draw and there it was. The Anejo shark staring me in the face. I picked it up grabbed my lighter and left.
Get to the barbeque and grab a Corona Beer with a lime....
nicely done, but the band is glued to the wrapper, makes it hard to remove.
the aroma is very nice and sweet.
very sweet, mellow, and slight hint of vanilla, it's probably not as complex, although it classifies as full bodied, I find it very smooth and easy for a...
Appearance and Construction
10 of 15 pts.
*Smooth, almost silky feel to it. Very moist. There were small, lighter colored blemishes on the cigar, though it wasn't very veiny at all.
*Why the low score? The draw was very firm and not really to my liking. I re-clipped the cigar in order to...
Anyone tried the Rocky Patel Sun Grown?
