I think Opus-X is over rated, however, I do love the Lost City, delicioso! I succumb to an overwhelming Pavlov's dog effect just thinking about them.

If I were to pick one size to try from the lost city what size do you recommend?

Ah you see here is where I differ. I love opus x the regular line, not so much the other variations. Properly aged, I think they are the only nc that come close to approaching cc flavor.

To smoke or not to smoke, that's the question.

All the lost city sizes have about the same ring gauge, so try a robusto to see if you like it before shelling out big bucks for them.

Pyramidsam:

What's proper aging for an Opus X? A year, more? I have tried several but not really aged and none of them even came close to the PAMs. The OpusX seems fairly available right now, so I may get some to put away, wondering how long.

Opus x Hijacking Pam thread. LOL. Sorry! Quick answer, try not to smoke fresh opus X until one year aging. They hit their prime in three and on wards. I recently had a 10 yr old no. 2 that was out of this world. Also keep the humidity not higher than 65 if possible. Usually fresh opus xs are a little tight due to the moisture.

PAM Exclusivo


I had a PAM Exclusivo for the first time the other night and thought it was pretty good. I'm more of a 1926 guy as I've never had a 1964 series smoke ever blow me away except for one stick, the maduro 45 family reserve. To me its hands down the best cigar in the 1964 line.
