As a fan of the Serie G, and a first time buyer from Famous Smoke I was pretty excited about this purchase. Firstly, this is a very small cig -not what you'd expect for a Robusto size. In fact I called customer service to see if they sent me cigarillos-they assured me it was a robusto but did offer to take them back, which seemed like a hassle for a 5 pk. My order included other cigars of the same ring size (50) as well as smaller - all of which were bigger than this cig.
Upon lighting one up, it was ok at best - not up to other Serie G's I've had. Aside from being extraordinarily small, it also turned out to be very loose. I burned through this thing in 10 min tops - really sad for a quality brand.
Bottom line, save your money and buy something else. This one will disappoint you.

This is a very cool smoking experience - indeed smooth. Good draw, good smell, and tasted woody at first then half way, it tasted sweet.
I would buy a box.

"You will like this "square"."
Great little cigar. Not wild about the box press shape. Pretty short so not a long smoking experience but enjoyable non the less. Good flavor, medium stregth, nice aroma. Priced right.

Had one of these the other night while mowing the lawn. It was great right from the start! Nice solid construction and great burn and draw. Smooth as any cigar I've ever had and tasted great from start to finish!

If you love Cameroon wrapper this one is for you. Mellow smoke with med all around taste and smoke. Some coffee,dark chocolate and toasty nuts flavor. for a forty five minute smoke to a hour no bad. If you want more and little more complex go for the Churchill and you won't be disappointed. Excellent value for the money.

Excellent in all qualities, burn was perfect, consistant to the last draw, flavourful and smooth as silk..only complaint is that it was a wee bit small, wish it had lasted for longer. Definitly would buy this cigar again.

"Smooth As Silk!!!"
WOW! This is an amazing smoke! I feel pretty sure about my palate, and it had great flavor. I'm more of a bold flavor guy, and I love getting pepper and coffee in my cigars. This little guy came to me in the Oliva 10 sampler and was the first one I smoked. I would honestly have to rate it RIGHT next to the Padron Anniversary 1964 naturals. Same mildness and similar flavor, creamy almost with some nutty backrounds. Smoked this one down to nothing, and didn't want it to end. While everyone has there own palate, I'm sure this will be a hit with almost anyone that smokes it. I'm definately going to pick up a box, as soon as I have room in my humidor.

"Great tasting cigar"
Got this cigar in a sampler and was very pleased. Great taste, very mild, easy draw and even burn.

"Great cigar for the price"
I have smoked about 7 or 8 of these cigars purchased from various places and have never been disappointed. While I prefer the Serie V they can be hard to find and are slightly more expensive. I find these Serie G to be an excellent, affordable milder substitute to my Serie V and always try to keep a couple on hand.

"Pairs well with coffee in the morning"
Excellent aroma and taste. I do like the small, box pressed robustos with coffee in the morning. They are fairly loose, and burn fast. I am never dissapointed in the Oliva G series and can recomend them without hesitation. Enjoy.
