Last year when I smoked this cigar for the first time I was a little disappointing. I was expecting a full body cigar coming from the Opus X Line. Then I had the pleasure to meet Keith Park, owner of Prometheus cigar and the one responsible for this blend made by Fuente. He explain to me how this cigar was not meant to be strong nor overpowering but satisfying. He recommend me to give this cigar the treatment we do to a Wine Bottle.... let it brief before you smoke it. If you are going to smoke the cigar after dinner, get it off the humidor and the cello, right before you go to eat! and i did that, and have been doing this for ever with Lost City Line and can assure you, it does make the difference. this is for long a great smoke and a very flavor full and satisfying smoke!
