"All is well that ends well"
Let these rest a bit and you ll enjoy a 90+ treat of smooth rich smoke with a knockout finish.

I'm sorry, but no way was this full-bodied. It was pretty but weak and almost tasteless. This was not the Joya De Nicaragua I remember.

"Great cigar with lots of taste"
Great cigar with great taste, oily and rich. Love it.

"Maybe a bad batch?"
All of the cigars came unraveled half way through and were difficult to keep lit. Rough draw also. Very disapointed.

"These Won't Last"
I saw these on the mashup last weekend and ended up trying 5 because the price was right and the reviews were good. today I fired the first one up and I was pleasantly surprised. The size and shape were nice. Perfect construction with a deep mahogany color. Draw was also perfect and when I fired it up I got tons of blue smoke and a rich full sweet tobacco flavor that lasted all the way through. I've been lucky enough to smoke a couple Opus X and while not quite as good I have to say this is one of the better full body smokes I have had. These are not going to last in my humi so I'll be getting more of these beauties so I don't run out. It's a great smoke at a surprisingly good price.

I really love these cigars. I first picked a couple up in a sample and thought wow, what a find. Ended up with a second sampler that had them, and again thought wow. I picked up a box and shared a few with the guys, the results were all the same, wow, what a great cigar! I will always keep a bunch of these guys in my humidor.

I truly enjoyed this cigar from beginning to end. It began with a smooth sweet smoke that may have brought fruit to mind...progressed into coffee-cream and a bit of cedar and ended as substantial but smooth-creamy powerful tabacco. I have a number of cigars that I am quite fond of but this one jumped somewhere in the top three...a few more might bring it to #1. I've heard a lot of smokers comment on it that it is too strong, strong it is but such a smooth, sweet smoke beginning to end, I would highly recommend this cigar to all but perhaps beginners or those who prefer mild-medium smokes.

"Good Cigar - but i'm with the "oh boya" guy"
Enjoyed this cigar although it was hard to keep lit and didnt have the greatest burn. Flavor was good - spicy full body and relatively strong tobacco. But 94 may be stretching it. Smoked a kristoff ligero maduro 2 days later and THAT is a 94 cigar to me. But everyone has different taste. This is a good smoke, no doubt, but i'm 5 and done.

I have smoked about 15 of these and every one is fantastic! I have never had an opus xx but it had better be really good to compete.

"My favor-rite cigar"
My favorite of all time. Very smooth for a full bodied cigar. I love everything about this cigar. Plus, it has alot of history to it.
