Construction

Good looking cigar with the iconic label so you know it's Opus X. Caramel color wrapper with a firm, dense feel to it. Great construction.

Burn

Draw is flawless with perfect resistance and amazing smoke production. Light-gray ash gave way to some very wavy burn lines, but it never impeded on the burn experience.

Highly recommended

I was a bit concerned in the beginning. Overly woody and sharp bitters and spice really weren't hitting the spot. BUT, after a moment it chilled a bit and creaminess began to open up into a rather pleasant flavor profile of wood, pepper, cream, and nuts. However, $22-ish asking a bit much in my opinion. Very glad I smoked it, decent flavor, but my child's college savings is now gone. Sorry son.
