Oliva Serie G Maduro
I often reach for this cigar when I can’t decide what to smoke. When I opened the humidor tonight, this one called my name.
Oliva Serie G Maduro:
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro
Binder: Nicaraguan Habano
Filler: Nicaraguan Habano
Size: Robusto box pressed, 5X50
Price: Around $3.00
The cigar was firm when squeezed, and burned great throughout. The wrapper had no visible defects or large veins, and the draw was perfect. This medium bodied smoke is good any time of the day.
Right away, this smoke offered a nice peppery, spicy flavor. Later on, nutty notes crept in. Also, the smoke was very smooth and easy to pass through the sinus. Very nice…
Now I remember why this is my go to smoke. Shortly after diving into this third, the coffee flavors came in, and the smoothness increased. As this third came to a close, very slight chocolate notes came into the background, and the spice remained.
Coffee and nuts dominated. The smoke was still smooth, and the spice stepped into the background. Every now and then, very slight earthy notes would come and go.
This is a nice smoke, and the price point makes it nicer. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with the Oliva Serie G Maduro. If a lighter smoke is your preference, you may want to consider the Cameroon version of this cigar. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
The amazing slide show:
