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 Perfecto Natural cigar presents a hearty, complex, and aromatic puro that's so smooth, it's never overpowering.

I'm a fan of Olivas but this wasn't my favorite. The flavor was spot on and the aroma is outstanding but the draw was really tough. I will have to try a robusto.less

It's a Perfecto. It starts mild, builds character and smoke then gets hot and oily at the end. That's what Perfectos do. No problems with the ash. It was clean and tight and even. Excellent smoke all around. Finishes with a heady Nicotine rush if you smoke it down too far. less

This cigar was just kind average all around. It was decently constructed. It didn't burn totally unevenly, but it wasn't a perfect burn like a Padron. The best part I would say was the tight draw. I am not a fan of loose drawing cigars. I like to have to pull on a cigar. The smoke was a medium bodied smoke. As far as flavor is concerned it didn't hit me hard nor did it have much of a finish. And the flavor was pretty consistant throughout the smoke. I got a little nuttiness and some wood but it was gone as quickly as it came. I was kind of bored between puffs not having anything to analyze. I tend to like heavily flavored cigars with thick smoke, so I would probably not smoke it again. If you like tame smokes it might be for you.less

Looking for something that tasted like tobacco leaves instead of "cream" and "chocolate", etc., I picked one of these up to test before buying a box. $5.75 at the local store [famous would of course have had my box order]. I stuck with this thing until the nub, which is not very long with this perfecto, and at first I did appreciate the "different" taste. After trying to think the best of this cigar I finally had to admit that it wasn't complex or anything like some good but atypical quality, it just tasted bad. Obviously, I don't normally go for the non-tobacco adjectives to describe a cigar, however I'm compelled to use one now - gasoline. That was the unique flavor of this cigar. Maybe I got a bad one, but even my wife noticed the smell on my fingers and asked me to wash my hands. Since I'm posting a review, I'll try another one from a different store and if it's different then I'll post a more positive followup. I hope my mileage varies.less

I ordered a box of 20 of these to try and I was sadly disappointed. The draw was good, and the taste was also quite nice but without fail every sinlge one of the cigars had a crack or several in the wrapper. This made every cigar look like trash and most of them unraveled or cracked further when smoked.less
