"Not what I expected"
I really wanted to like this cigar. I'm a big fan of other Oliva cigars. I picked up one of these at a B&M and let it rest in the humidor for 3 weeks. I fired it up tonight thinking it might be my vacation smoke. the appearance was excellent.The construction was, as usual for an Oliva, excellent. The burn and draw were spot on. My only disappointment was with the taste. It started out a bit harsh, perhaps even sour.The taste never changed from the light up to the nub. While I enjoyed the smoke, I was expecting more. If I was offered another I would not turn it down just not what I thought it would be.
