Review Notes: I had one of these a while ago and was not very impressed. As a result, I shied away from Opus in general, thinking them overpriced and overhyped. That has actually not kept me from buying them. I have quite a few friends who think them the cat's meow and so whenever my local store, which sells them at MSRP, gets them in I stock up on them for gifts. You can't argue with the fact that they are exceedingly handsome and festive looking. Well last night I opened my humidor to select a stick for the evening and for some reason I just reached for one of these. And I am glad I did. What a difference from those that I've had in the past! Exceeding rich and smooth, dense clouds of smoke, a perfect burn, and some flavors that I have rarely if ever experienced in a cigar. Lots of fruit, like raisins and plums, but so smooth. An absolutely wonderful experience. I found myself almost cackling through the first 2/3 of the cigar. The final third, while still delicious, did not go in the direction that I expected. It got a little bit flat. However, it did not get at all tarry or harsh, which was a welcome change from a lot of other strong cigars. I have a good stock of these at this point. I think I'm going to have to find a different stick to start giving away. :)
