Oliva Serie O Toro
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 Toro cigar presents a hearty, complex, and aromatic puro that's so smooth, it's never overpowering.
I have been smoking this cigar for some time and have always been very pleased with it uintil the latest box arrived. About 1/3 of them had such a hard draw that they were unsmokable.
I bought a 5 pack of these cigars to try, and I have been very impressed with them. I normally smoke coronas, but these are perfect for a leisurely smoke to relax and unwind at night. I like a full flavored cigar, and these meet that description easily. I would sum them up as "strong" but not harsh. So far all have been very consistent in taste, construction. Easy to draw, even burn, but long lasting tells me the construction rates a score of 100.
I read about these cigars in my last issue of C. A. I like medium bodied cigars in the morning or mid-day. I thought I would try a sample packet of five because of the uncertainity of this brand. Wow! I was totally taken in by the aroma before the cigar was even lit. Once it was lit, it burned great, nice ash, and the aroma, hmmmmmm. The draw was easy. Only one word can describe the taste - Awesome! Olivia definetly hit the mark with this cigar. They hold the standard for a medium bodied cigar. Already got these marked for my next order. Five (5) cigars only lasted a week. Even mild cigar smokers would like this one.
