    Default Opus X ~ Perfexcion X

    Other's reviews (I'm sure there's some, but I was too lazy to search)

    Smoke: Opus X ~ Perfexcion X
    Drink: Miscellaneous Yuengling
    Tunes: Miscellaneous Wilco

    Wrapper: Dominican
    Binder: Dominican
    Filler: Dominican
    Draw: Medium
    Burn: Excellent
    Misc: 60+min

    Pre-light: Cedar sleeve. Feels dense. Colorado shade wrapper, or middle of the road brown shade. Excellent construction except that when I took the sleeve off, it pulled a hole in the wrapper. Musky sweet tobacco scent. I used the cut cap to repair the hole. Not much cut PL taste…maybe some spice



    Light: Couldn’t find my lighter, so used matches to light a split piece of cedar lining I had laying around…worked nice!

    1st 3rd: A little spicy, some leather. Toothy at this point, with cedar flavors and a creamy background. Medium to full body and medium flavor. Some oils and now a sweet tobacco ring.



    Ash: Very nice. Medium gray with ash bubbles. Holds on for about 1 ¼”



    2nd 3rd: Mellow. A little spice, and oily / leathery flavors. Also woodsy and cedar notes. Creamy aspect still there.



    3rd 3rd: Very mellow now. Flavors mostly the same, but less pronounced. Woodsy cedar notes, and it’s less of the sweet tobacco taste now.



    Overall impression: Reading back, the review sounded better than my impression of it. It was definitely a good cigar, but honestly, I was expecting more.

    Got this from the budget box pass last year, so thanks to Craig & dieselgrinch

    Thanks for the review, how did you make that repair? How big was the hole?

    Now quit smoking/reviewing these dog rockets - Opus what now? Can you please get caught up on the Mega Reviews... sheesh.

    Nice review! Looking forward to smoking the one that I have in the humi. Saving it for a special occasion, but it was great to see your review of it. Thanks. Roger.
    Just another day at the office!

    When I pulled the sleeve off, a chunk about the size of a matchead came off, so I clipped the cap real shallow, and just licked it, licked the spot, and stuck it on. Worked well.

    Damn sh!t sticks... It never ceases to amaze me how reality seldom lives up to expectations. I think the Opus line is good (especially if you can get them at the MSRP), but the hype increases the price and, accordingly, expectations.
