Oliva Serie O Maduro Double Toro
The same full-bodied Oliva Serie O blend enriched by a dark, mouthwatering Maduro wrapper. Created for the more seasoned palate, this unique-tasting 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. Patiently cured and aged a full five years, you'll enjoy a hearty, complex, and aromatic puro that's so smooth, it's never overpowering.
Handsome and simple appearance. Flavorful, with excellent undertones of coffee and sharp spices. Construction is decent. However does not hold the ash very well. Recommend keeping ash to a maximum of no more than a half inch.
Excellent tasting full bodied cigar. Wrapper on the thin side but overall good construction. Burn and draw are good. Best after couple of months in humidor if you can keep from smoking this bad boy.
The construction, draw and consistency of these cigars are most disappointing. Possibly the two boxes I ordered had somehow dried out in transit although I used 2-day UPS delivery as I always do. The cigars are hard to keep lit and the outer wrapper unravels. I've had much better cigars from Famous-Smoke at half the price. A couple of years ago I purchased the Olivia "O" Series Maduro Torpedo 7x54's and found them to be very good overall. Either the time difference or the size and shape difference makes the Olivio Double Toro a poor choice.
