Review Notes: In 1999, the leather Opus X Atoll case came with three Reserve D' Chateau Opus X cigars. I kept these cigars for 4 years and smoked them in late 2003. These three cigars were simply amazing in their construction, flavor, and beauty. I have not had a better Opus X or their equal since. Fuente's Forbidden X tastes like a perfectly aged Opus X. The familiar Opus X flavor is there, but more subtle. The burn is slightly faster and quick to go out without attention. The taste in your mouth prior to lighting is less spicy or peppery, but just as tantilizing. The ash is characteristically white and long to cling to the end of the cigar. What was THE cigar label is now redefined and equally beautiful in black. I wish I could stop smoking them, at $30 a cigar, they are not a "daily" smoke - for most economic classes. It is no strain on one's credulity, that this IS a must try for any cigar fan - Padron Anniversary may be more consistent and require a bit less attention in the humidor, but no Padron inculcates the senses like a Forbidden X.
