"Very good value"
This short robusto is a good, quick smoke. The wrapper was a beautiful dark brown with very few flaws. The aroma was great. The construction was perfect with a perfect burn and draw. Excellent!

Good smoke, started out with an awesome flavor, got a little bitter toward the middle, but finished great. Only got a little uneven burn, had to add a little heat to one side to keep it lit, but it evened back out.

Anyone who scores this under 90 doesn't know cigars.

"Not bad, but not good"
Bought the Old Money Smoker Pack, Received 2 of these. First one a friend smoked, said it was too strong for him. I light up mine was burning Great for about the first inch, but then only half was burning, turned the cigar to see if it would self-correct and didn't. After 2 more inches of half burn I cut it off and started over for the last 2 inches. after a 1/2 inch started to only burn half again, just finished it out that way. I wasted 1/2 a cigar from uneven burn.
Was a great tasting cigar, just had a burn problem.

This is my first Oliva and I have to say, this is the taste from a cigar I have been looking for these past six months. Based on the small size, I thought this was going to be about a 40 minute smoke, but it turned out to be a full 60. I have tried many cigars at twice this price, but none have had the great flavor of this one. Medium-full, smooth, lots of great smoke, even burn, nice ash, absolutely perfect draw. Very fine cigar and now one of my top three favorites.

"Not for mild cigar smokers"
This cigar was way too strong and bitter for me.

The burn was almost perfect. The draw was very good. The appearance was great. The taste was superb. The consistency and construction were perfect. Overall, an absolutely great cigar. I'm adding this one to my must have list. Can't beat the price.

With flavor that is, let it sit at least a month after you get it though. Out of the package a hint of ammonia, a month later, rich creamy, lots of tasty smoke.Burns long too, about an hour at least.Leave it to Oliva. They could wrap dog poo in A maduro leaf slap a band on it and somehow make it taste good.
