"Its a cigar"
Not a bad cigar. Personally I thought it was a little bland but it burned perfectly even the entire way. It was a good smoke, worth a try.

"Smooth, Warm, Evening Cigar on a cool nite"
A cool spring evening, after a nice Italian Meal, time for a relaxing smoke. The Oliva Serie G Belicoso is an excellent choice. The charachter of this one was a little harsh on the first few draws, but then it developed a warm woody character that lasted throughout the smoke.
Smoke it slowly and savor the creamy wood/leather aroma. It lasted down to the nub. A good glass of white wine cleanses the palate as you smoke this one and enhances the flavor.
I'll be smoking more of these.

"Don't waste your money"
What a waste of time. Absolutely no draw at all, Since there was no draw, the cigar kept dying out till the taste was horrible. I bought two 5 packs and threw out 6 cigars. I would not waste my time shipping this crap back to famous smoke shop. Save your money people....

OK First I didn't buy this one from Famous Smoke Shop, But heck it was still an Olivia G. Maybe I got a bad one but with that said I used one of those angle cutters that cuts a long divit in the ind of the cigar which has worked for all my other cigars but this one had a terrible draw. So bad I almost hurt my cheeks trying to suck anything out of this thing. It was like trying to suck smoke from an unlit cigar. The little I got tasted fine but it was so irritating I just gave up on it. I will never buy another one. If someone gives me another one I'll try it cause the taste for what I got seemed Ok if it was just a bad cigar then OK but Ive smoked cheaper cigars that were much easier to smoke.
I tried re lighting the dang thing three times but it was lit just no draw at all. I cannot emphasis enough how hard it was to try to get anything from it. It had to be just a bad cigar or maybe needed cut again deeper into the cigar I just don't know.

"Great flavor, solid construction, pure bliss!"
I grabbed the rest of a box of these at the local shop and sure am glad I did...what a great cigar. A little more bold than I might prefer in the morning, but it made for a great evening smoke. I look forward to trying others from the Oliva Serie G line.

"A Mixed Blessing"
Snagged a five pack of these a month or so ago here for cheap. I love the Serie O, so I figured why not try the Serie G, eh? These Serie G taste great - a true medium bodied flavorful smoke with a touch of sweetness but everything about this cigar is loose. I figured the first cigar of this pack was the exception, but I've since found that it held true for all five cigars in the pack -- the draw is very loose and the cigar isn't packed well and quite soft (not overly moist or too dry, just soft, like there isn't enough tobacco in the filler). The first cigar actually unraveled on me after the first inch or so. It was annoying, but I still was able to smoke it. I was more careful handling the other four Serie G cigars as I smoked them, but all were somewhat disappointing -- too bad, considering the great flavor. I know Famous here dubs the Serie O as full-flavored but having smoked more than a few of them, the Serie O is on more on the medium side then full, especially if you smoke them slowly. Bottom line = avoid the Serie G; it has too many issues. Try the Serie O -- it raises the bar on the premium medium flavored/medium strength cigar!

A very nice smoke that burns slowly and
