A genuine African Cameroon wrapper highlights this unique-tasting and affordably-priced selection presented in mostly box-pressed shapes. Each cigar is skillfully handmade with a medium-bodied blend of Nicaraguan Habano longfillers and binders that are carefully selected to complement the rich flavor and aroma of the specially-aged wrapper. Available in a wide array of sizes, the Oliva Serie G Special G Natural is a great way to introduce yourself to the Oliva Family of fine premium cigars.

Approximately 75% of the last batch I purchased were rolled with a chimney in the center. They burned out right down the middle of the cigar and left about 60-70% of it unused. Been smoking these for quite a while - first time this has happened. less

I was expecting a short smoke from this cigar but it lasted a lot longer than I had thought. The burn started out uneven but it evened out as I got into the "meat" of the cigar. I can describe the taste as being very mild while still maintaining a rich tobacco flavor. The ash was a dull white with a few dark spots. If I had not knocked the ash off halfway through, it probably would've been intact to the very end. I smoked the cigar to the nub without it becoming too hot. Very well constructed overall. Would buy again for casual smokes.less

They are certainly smokeable. I had a small leak in mine mid neck but it didn't bother me. The flavor is pretty dull. Just a plain tobacco. For the price and the look I decided to try it out. I won't be buying again but I don't feel like bashing my own head in either. I say pass on this oneless

OK, so they really aren't that expensive, but I expected much better from Oliva. I smoke predominately Villazon cigars, Topper and a Texas made stogie, Travis Club Senators. I had heard soooo many people brag about Oliva that I had to try one today. Tried five, as a matter of fact.I got the Special G, I really like the look of this cigar and had high hopes. I *will* say they were consistent...consistently bad. Hot, lack luster flavor and they all had wrapper tears that someone, I suppose the roller, had covered over with a patch of tobacco. I'll stick with Villazon handmades and my fave machine smokes. BTW, never have had a Cain, Rocky Patel, Tatuaje or any of those other newfangled brands and I will tell ya, no matter how much folks brag on 'em, I never will. Stick with the tried and true, I say.less

Being new to premium cigars, Perhaps my review does not mean much. But my impressions were that the cigar had an easy draw, but was lacking in a decent flavor. To me the Series G tasted like dirt and cardboard. I have had better Phillies. less
