Very good cigar. Sweet to the taste. If you like a FULL bodied smoke that will open your lungs - this is the one. I love bigger gauge cigars and this size (5X60) is just a great little smoke. Nice burn, draw and taste. The 8X66 is not bad either if you have the time to sit and enjoy this big boy!

"Another surprise from Oliva"
Oliva made me a believer in their budget Flor de Oliva line 2 years ago. I've smoked several bundles of the short torpedo, in that time, on my way to work in the morning. When I saw this Robusto Gordo, 5x60, I had to try it. Now I am ordering it in bundles too. It can be uneven; one cigar not as good as the last, but that happens with all brands. In the case of the Oliva, I just dump it and light another. It's usually better. And that is very good. The only thing that would make them perfect would be a Belicoso. Same size, tapered tip.
So in the words of that famous American, Popeye... "I loves them, Olives." lol
