Nice smoke. Had raisin elements. Maybe a bit of leather. I don't usually like big ring gauge smokes but this one was good.

I love when I get that raisin note from Opus. I get it a lot in the pre light draw, but less frequently when actually smoking one. However, I've really only smoked the fresh ones(although have a box put away to age).

It seems like all of the "13s" have that raisin element to them, much more pronounced then in other Opus X, could also be that they haven't had enough time to age.

Would that be the Opus Monixca?

True dat, but the little pieces of hair that get stuck in my teeth are annoying.

Nothing wrong with a good PJ cigar!

Smoke one last night. Seemed mellower than other opus. I liked it, which surprised me since i don't normally like large ring gage cigars

Had a second one of these. Burn was very poor, which ended the cigar very early and screwed up the flavors. First half was OK but a disappointment overall.

Sometimes when I'm hitting one of these Pussy's, I just smoke it until I am done, not until it's finished anyway, but I hear ya! Some are great and some, not so much. I think it all depends on age and how they've been kept.
