"Alright at best"
Cigar has good construction. The burn was very uneven though. The taste was unpleasant at best. This is a good smoke to give to buddies that don't know any better.

This cigar has become one of my favorites,regardless of price. After trying one, I bought a box. Have smoked 5 or 6 and every one has had very good flavor, aroma, draw and burn with no bitter aftertaste.

Ok, I tried one of these as soon as I got them and hated it! I let the other four sit in my humidor for three months. I broke one out last night hoping that the additional aging would help. I was wrong. It was just as bad as I rembered it. The tatse was awful and the smell was terrible. I couldn't even get half way through it. Don't waste your money. I'm glad I only wasted mine on a five pack.

"At least it was only a 5 pack"
Ordered a robusto 5 pack as a possible supplement to my Torano 1916's. Initially disappointing. Still disappointing after 7 months in the humidor. This is a good cigar to give to mouchers - should discourage them from asking again.

There is a reason why Cigar Aficionado rated this so highly; it is an excellent Cammie. The Oliva family knows their way around tobacco and this is one example. Among the more full-flavored Cameroons you will smoke, the fillers nonetheless do not overpower the delicate flavor of the wrapper - and don't let the small size fool you. This stick burns slow and even and will deliver an unexpected amount of smoke for the size. Beautiful construction, and a cigar that is in one of my humidors all the time.

"Great Cigar - But need more"
I liked this cigar very much. Excellent draw, nice spice, tons of smoke. Hint of sweetness after initial light, and although the spice gets more agressive as the stogie gets shorter, it never seems bitter or overpowering.

"Good smoke, Great Price"
Ok I read the previous reviews and I think these guys are being quite harsh on the poor little Oliva. This is a pleasant smoke with good flavors throughout. There was very good consistency and the taste can best be described as mellow. I would describe this as a light to medium bodied cigar, that for the price is worth a try. Overall a very pleasant experience.
