Only issue is have with this cigar is that it s too EXPENSIVE!
This was a gift from a friend, so I didn't pay for it. The draw was great, the flavor was OK, it burned a little unevenly, it got a bit better as I smoked it down. IMHO, this is simply not worth the money it takes to buy it, there are superior cigars with superior flavor for a LOT less money. Smoke on if given one, but spend your money on something else.
The Power Ranger is simply one of the best cigars in the world. The 95 rating that Cigar Aficionado gave the Opus X Belicoso XXX was right on the money. This is the cigar you smoke down until it burns your lips, because you don t want it to end.10

Wow, purchased a box a while back and had it sit in my humi for a few years and it is a powerful full bodied smoke with a sweet mellow finish. A++ in my book, just have to let them sit a bit40
All the reviews on this is true. GREAT smoke that cannot be beat.I smoke these on absolute special occassions. Not cause of the cost, but how great this smoke is.Try one, and you will see.20
I 'll never forget the first time I had one it was about two years after the media started following the story of Fuente Jr's pet project "Lets make the Greatest Cigar in the world with all parts coming strickly from the Dominican Republic". He was having the most difficult time reaching perfection in deciding how to go about the wrapper; which was finally decided to be a Rosado type using Cuban seed found on only the finest Cubans. Release was estimated to be in 2 years. Only the finest of finest leaves, well aged from the best vintage crops and the best rollers then further aging. Junior was sick of the Cuban reputation and wanted to beat them at their own game. "The worlds definitive Best Cigar. Better then Cuban Davidoff when they were available or Cuban Cohiba's or Trinidad's or Royalty like a Cuban Montecristo #2 or #3 and Partagas in its heyday. There was so much hype when he announced this challenge. Most smokers were hedging their bets that it would be impossible...This takes me to the day I entered [a cigar store] in Philadephia to pick up my quota 1 cigar each. I was with my Great Uncle from the South of France who was a cigar lover himself and had come over for his first visit in 30 years. It couldn't have been better timing.To cut to the chase we lit up. All I was thinking was that Junior had done it. Words could not describe the experience. It was everthing I and most experienced smokers would describe as the perfect cigar. Plenty of rich, super complex smoke from beginng to end. Meaty, yet with such finesse. Tastes of steak, mushroom, cream, some wood and coffee. Smoke was perfect from begining, building in intensity to a crecendo about 3/4 down and every bit of the butt was sheer enjoyment. A perfect roll too along with burn and super white ash. After nearly 2 hours I had to eventually release it because my fingers were getting scorched. My Great Uncle was comparing it to his beloved Cuban Davidoff's and mentioned, "this could be better".

good cigar, good draw, good construction. I have had many sub-ten dollar cigars that beat the opus x easily.20
One of the best cigars I have ever had! Magnificent!10
Excellent top quality cigar.00
Anyone that spends $40.00 for this Opus is an idiot. You obviously don't know jack about Cigars. These may be an ok smoke at $10.00 at $40.00 they suck.10
The aroma never materializes. After a third burned, the scent is more noticeable but not completely there. It remained that way to the end. I had smoke one on New Year Eve 2010; they are so much different. If I was blindfold, I would say it was a $5 cigar.10
