    Default 2004 Opus X Forbidden X Toro Review

    Figured since it was such a nice day I'd have a nice smoke. The size of the Forbidden X Toro is 6 1/8 x 44. This particular cigar was a part of the Journey To Chateau De La Fuente Black Box. The cigar is beautifully constructed with a natural wrapper featuring virtually no noticable viens. Prelight draw was that off a little bit of spice, cinnamon, and a hint of pepper. Draw seems a little bit on the tight side, but I'll find out in a minute, time to spark it!



    First Third - Well, I was wrong about the draw. Once I got it light it was drawing perfectly! During the initial first few puffs I felt a tingle on the toungue from the rich tobacco. A mix of earth, leather, and a hint of spice to it. Flavour is wonderful so far and producing a nice thick amount of smoke. Burn is nice and even, ash is a light gray and held for a little over an inch before falling off.



    Second Third - As I get in to the second third the flavour is pretty consistant from the first third, the pepper has faded just a bit and a woodsy flavour is also present. Still a bit of leather and a hint of a floraly spice to it that was there during the prelight draw is now in the background. Burn is still nice and even, produce the perfect amount of smoke. I found myself wanting to draw on it more often than normal because it was just so damn tasty!



    Final Third - As I get in to the final third the cigar has picked up a bit in strength and the dominant flavour is leather. It is still maintaining a bit of pepper and woodsy notes as well. A slight coffee flavour to the finish also. This cigar burned perfect the entire time and not once did it require a touchup. Took about an hour and forty-five minutes to nub this sucker. Sad to see it end!



    I have to say that this was a great cigar. I kept thinking the whole time that this is what a cigar is supposed to be like, at least to me that is. Perfect burn and nice thick amount of smoke to it. Definitely a full bodied cigar, yet started out mostly medium strength that built to a full strength during the final third. The flavour of this stick definitely appealed to me. I am not quite sure I would say it is the best cigar I have ever had but it is definitely somewhere in the top 5. Thanks for reading!

    Nice review, thank you for taking time to post the pictures and review bro.
    "From my own experience visiting the troops in the Middle East, I can tell you this, though: despite how the conflict has been portrayed by our glorious media, if you gave any U.S. soldier a gun with two bullets in it, and he found himself in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Osama bin Laden, there's a good chance that Nancy Pelosi would get shot twice, and Harry Reid and bin Laden would be strangled to death." -David Feherty
