Oliva Serie O Churchill
Oliva Serie O is designed for the seasoned palate. This unique-tasting, full-bodied blend is achieved by growing the same Cuban-seed Habano tobaccos in different regions of northern Nicaragua - producing a distinct flavor variation in each of these rich filler, binder and wrapper tobaccos. After a carefully controlled fermentation process, the tobaccos are aged a full five years. That's why every Oliva Serie O Churchill cigar presents a hearty, complex, and aromatic puro that's so smooth, it's never overpowering.
I like these cigars and after reading the mixed reviews thought I'd add mine. I've smoked all of the "O" series but mostly Churchills and Torpedoes and I'm struck by the value, consistency and good taste. They aren't "the best ever" but for daily value, the Olive Series O hits the mark. Good tobacco flavor, and if I've stored them right and kept the humidity on track they burn straight, smooth and cool. For special occassions I might move up to the Series V or a Padron '64, but these are very, very good. Try a five pack and see what you think. They aren't as good as the "rave" reviews, but they certainly aren't as bad as some of the critics. Check 'em out.
