Oliva Serie O Corona
6 x 46 - Natural - Box of 20
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 Corona cigar presents a hearty, complex, and aromatic puro that's so smooth, it's never overpowering.
This cigar was a non-event. Not much flavor, but not anything to write home about. Try the nub connecticut if you like more flavor impact. I was expecting a lot more out of this one. It had a wavy burn and a tight draw, too.
Everytime I smoke one of these, I think to myself "why do you ever buy any other brand of cigar, you silly sod?". Oliva simply dominates as far as the price to quality ratio is concerned, and frankly, they just dominate regardless of price. I feel like there is some serious soul in these cigars, you can see it, feel it, and taste it resoundingly! I took some of the serie G toros to Mexico awhile back where I enjoyed numerous Cuban cigars as well, the G's held their f'n own!
