    I have had a number of Opus X and found them pretty inconsistent. I have had a few that have been incredible. A great Belicoso that was particularly memorable. Most though are pretty boring and not a very nice flavor. Usually harsh. Construction is the same. The good ones have a great ash and burn but the others were flakey. I find that 90% of NC have flimsy, flakey ashes and a very loose draw.

    The Anejo is so popular as well. I have tried most if not all and had ONE good one (not great).

    I am still pretty new to cigars but most of the NC have been so unimpressive. The main exception has been Oliva V and Masters Blend which are amazing and very consistent.

    I am sticking with Cubans both for the consistency and price. For this price, you can get a great Cuban.

    I sampled some rather fresh ones a few years ago and they didn’t strike me as overly spicy. I still have a couple of sticks from that sampler, perhaps it’s time to revisit them.

    Good review. I thought I was the only one who felt this way about this line. I have tried well aged examples in 4 different vitolas and have yet to find an Opus X worth the msrp, let alone the premium prices that they really sell for. I just don’t think pure strength in a cigar is a very significant achievement. For non cc’s, Padron’s are a much more flavorful and complex cigar and can be found almost anywhere.
