    I, too, find that the very finest sticks require nothing more than a glass of cool spring water as an accompaniment. Great review.

    Glad you got the opportunity to try one. I certainly agree, the Opus X is one of the finest cigars available. I do find that they combine well with a good coffee or espresso too!

    I have to agree, it is one of the finest cigars I have tried. I paired it with my usual single malt scotch, the buzz was a little bit too much in the last quarter of the cigar.

    I have had a couple of the Opus x cigars in the last couple years and each one is amazing. Sadly they are quite pricey in my area as well. I have never had a vintage that has rested so well as 1992 though.

    I had my first Opus this past holiday season. It had a year of rest time in the humidor. It was still a small powerhouse though.

    I have one that is reasting for a long time that was a gift this last holiday season. it is supposed to be a churchill but it is really buly. Probably close to 8 inches long and with about a 45-50 ring gauge. The small torpedoes i have had were full of strength so I am anticipating something intense from that one.

    Very good cigar but can still find others that are to more my liking–but a good cigar

    I second Lucky’s suggested pairing of the Opus X with coffee, as the two are a delightful combination. Kenya AA works better than Sumatra, as far as the coffee goes. Mmm, now the ol’ salivary glands are goin’…

    Of all the cigars that I’ve smoked the Opus X is my favorite. Water in the afternoon and coffee at night is my pairing of this wonderful cigar!

    The opus is one of my favs! Along with the Short Story and Best Seller they can’t be matched. A ’92- I can’t imagine, lucky you….

    These are best when aged. If you want to pair it with alcohol, Bushmills Green Label is perfect. I recently smoked one at a local cigar bar, their humidor was jacked up and every cigar in it were as hard as rocks. Good thing I brought some of my own.

    I’m proud of being Dominican and have them just around the corner… As I allways says, this is one of the best cigars I’d have smoked. I can only compare them with the God of Fire (Carlitos 2006 Double Robusto) from Fuentes Cigars too, and the Opus X Perfection X. They are very expensive cigars but for a special occasion is not a big deal!!

    Nice review.

    No alcohol… Try a quaff if Vizcaya VXOP Cask 21 Rum with an Opus X. The alcohol can cleanse the palate and the sweetness in the rum will negate the high nicotine in these cigars.

    @ rotten72: How log do you suggest aging them?

    Wonderful cigar. The Perdomo Edicion de Silvio
    is the only other cigar I’ve found comparable.

    VERY nice review. I have an Opus X *somewhere*…

    That tin IS nice.

    Between this cigar and a Cuban Cohiba paradise is found. The taste and complexity makes this a sheer joy to smoke and anytime I light this up I make sure I am never interrupted,,even if the house is on fire don’t interrupt me.

    How would the opus pair with a nice rich coffee or espresso? Getting married in July and believe these will be arriving via Brother!
    Excellent review.

    I can’t help but disagree with the water/cigar pairing. When I drink water with a cigar it seems to bring out flavors in the same way that a wet dog smells worse than a dry one. Water washes all the “notes” out of your mouth and leave you tasting more cigarette than cigar.

    I would describe myself as a novice-intermediate BOTL. I have to admit I was unprepared for the power of Opus X. Inspector you are most correct about the alcohol part. I decided to smoke this with a Bailey’s(I know it’s a more “girly” drink) but let me tell you after the smoke, I was laid out for almost an hour. I have two more of these in my humidor and next time I hope to be more prepared.

    Other than this, the smoke was definitely complex and I did find it smooth but boy if your a novice, be prepared for the “spins” if you are unprepared!

    I beg to differ. Opus X is a very beautiful well constructed cigar, but highly overrated and I find it one dimensional unless it has been aged for at least 3-5 years. I collect cigars and have bought few boxes of Davidoff Dom Perignon vintage 1987 and 1988 but I find Opus X very much overpriced. My daily Cuban R&J Wide Churchill beats any Opus X hand down and I pay $10 a stick in Zurich.

    Best cigar I have ever had so far. Review is absolutely on target. I got a box today and I will enjoy for many many nights. What a gift. Wow. Now back to my cigar. It works we’ll with Makets 46.

    I buy these every time I pass through Dubai as massively cheaper than UK. Can last up to 2 hours or more. Ash very long and white, but still lots of smoke. Would choose them over Cohiba every time.

    I actually own the extra rare 1992 vintages. Theee come in the tin case. I smoked one and it was amazing to put it mildly. The taste and smoothness is exquisit! I have two left from the set i received. If you ever come across these, DONT THINK ABOUT IT…BUY THEM. They are super hard to find.

    Dubai Duty Free seems to stock these regularly in all three sizes from US$ 80 to US$100 for a tin of three. Not cheap, but best cigar I have smoked.

    I just rec’d a Tin of 3 from my Son, TONY for Christmas! What a WONDERFUL son!
    Can’t wait to light one up!

    Just had one out of the tin of three. Great smoke and very grammy. Stocking up on them. Have all three tin sizes. The robusto is excellent.
