Pros:Reliable Opus X build quality and flavor, even burn, rich, powerful taste

Cons:Price gouging from dealers

The Bottom Line: No humidor is complete without a few Opus X cigars. The Power Ranger lives up to its name with its bold taste, and excellent build quality. Fasten your seat belts!


After a few months of it sitting in my humidor I finally decided to take it head on. My last experience with an Opus X was a tough one - it knocked me down. My friend said "Dude, your eyes are glazed over."

But I'm a fan of self induced pain & pleasure...so I took the plunge again.

This Opus X XXX (4 5/8 x 49) is built like tank, solid, tight with that confidence inducing feel when you have it sit between your fingers. You're not driving, it drives you.

I have to say that I'm a self-confessed light weight when it comes to strong cigars, it goes right to my head in no time. This cigar has the fastest puff to head absorption ratio of any cigar I've smoked. Literally, after 2 draws, I was feeling straight up top. The smoke was nice and white, medium thickness, and ultra-spicey with hints of cinnamon and cedar. The fragrance was very nice as well. Unlike other cigars, after a strong draw, letting the smoke sit in my mouth for a while, it latches on to my tongue and doesn't let go. Like a prize fighter's constant jab at your jaw.
As the smoke drew near the wrapper, it was almost too strong for me. Intoxicating is probably the right word.
It definitely is a cigar that lives up to its nick name of Power Ranger.
Intense and bold.
I'll probably have to hurt myself again in a few months. It was a fun love affair.
