"One of my three regulars"
Great shape, great appearance, amazing draw with steady even burn... I smoke these regularly along with Alec Bradley Black Markets and Padron 3000/6000 (so you can get a feel for my palette)... Just a great value...

"What a shocker"
Holy moth balls batman was she a good one. I didn't expect anything from this gorgeous little smoke but I was blown away. Very flavorful with plenty of rich creamy smoke. Really enjoyed this puppy and have subsequently ordered a box. Recommended!

"Good cigar but some problems"
The first box I smoked were great as are most Olivas. The next box had flavor an draw issues. I'll let them age and see what happens. Overall a good cigar.

"Follow up review"
So now that I have gone through a whole box, I have to say that there are some inconsistencies from cigar to cigar. Some were nice and peppery and some were just flat flavor wise. Construction was great. For the price they are still worth a try.

"Really good, and a great value as well."
This was a really good cigar. The burn needed a couple of touch ups but wasn't too bad. Flavor started off really spicy but mellowed out a little after the first third. The finish left a nice pleasant flavor in your mouth. Nice creamy smoke. The draw was a little tough but not a workout for the cheeks. It is a well made, good looking cigar. I would recommend at least a 5 pack or a box if you have a tight budget.

This is the most attractive cigar I have ever had the pleasure of laying my eyes on. Dark wrapper,nice sheen,shimmers with oil, man, its almost a shame to burn. The pre light aroma is almost too much. Rich, deep,bold almost intimidating. This stick is a reward. Huge clouds of thick smoke, coffee bean and dark chocolate dance on the palate, true Nicaraguan earthy tones linger on the tongue. Makes the everyday joe like myself feel like a bigshot. Man, if there are no Oliva "G" maduros in heaven then dammit send me straight to hell.

"What a pleasant surprise for less than a 5 spot!"
I enjoyed a week up at Whistler in B.C. over the kids spring break, March 2008. After hitting the slopes for 4 days straight, the legs were burning. I hit the hot tub and pulled out this Oliva series G I had brought up in my Otterbox. It was just the ticket! After a few weeks in the humi it was nice and soft to the touch. The pre draw was easy and the smoke just rolled out of the thing! It was just tasty from the get go. A bit sweeter than I expected actually. The smoke was a creamy, thick pleasure that smacked of dark chocolate. Even though I was swiggin a local microbrewed Ale along with it, I could not get enough of the taste of this cigar. This one went right down til my fingers burned. I hated to put it down. And this was the longest ash I have ever managed. Even while sitting in the tub! I finally ashed it off after over %75 smoked just to avoid the drop in the hot tub. First time I searched out a box to buy of any cigar.

"Wow. Really great cigar."
I ordered a box of the Oliva Serie G Maduro Belicosos after reading rave reviews on other sites. Superb. I've never had a cigar taste this good right out of the box. I can't wait to see what a few months in the coolidor do to enhance the flavor. I really enjoy the bitter chocolate taste to compliment a strong cup of coffee. At $80 a box, these mini-belicosos are top-notch.
