Overall a pleasant cigar

The Oliva Serie V Double Robusto is a winner. Excellent flavors of burnt walnuts, leather, and white pepper. This cigar reminds me of a the cuban Cohiba Robusto, but may be even better. A new favorite.

"As good as advertised"
Having read the good reviews, I had to pick up a stick at my B&M. This cigar lives up to the positive reviews and more. Full-bodied, very meaty, and smooth as silk. Had some draw and minor burn issues that were easily resolved. I've put in my order for a box.

I've heard a lot about Oliva's Serie V cigars; it's a name that consistently pops up in the discussion of good cigars. Using Famous Smoke's fantastic "Create a Sampler" deal, I picked two Serie V double robustos, expecting a high quality, full-bodied cigar. What I got was exactly that. The draw was perfect, all-around good construction, and complex flavors from the first draw to the last. I would highly recommend Serie V to anyone who enjoys a full-bodied smoke.

"This is a smoothie"
This is a smoothie from start to finish. I enjoyed the first one so much that I'm afraid to smoke the other 4. If I smoke another one, I'm pretty sure I'll want to to smoke another right after.

This is my 3rd box and has become my favorite. It is a beautifully made cigar. Very nice taste, feel , smoking cigar. With the Double Robusto, I hate to get to the end, it always makes me want more.

"My Top 5"
One of My Top 5 Cigars Love the taste and it looks good.
Price can come down but that?s true for most Cigars.

"One of the finest achievements with tobacco"
This cigar is one of the select from Nicaragua that successfully gets on par with the classic Cuban taste and body (though not in ring gauge.) Although not wholly similar to the Serie V, some of the others are the Alec Bradley Prensado, and Padilla 1932. This cigar is just great, full bodied but not fixing to punch you in the face with the strength. I think the strongest point of this cigar is the aroma. It's like that traditional Cuban tobacco perfume-ish aroma. When the price is considered, this has got to be the best cigar for the money.

"VERY NICE CIGAR"
Very nice look, smell, feel and burn. The draw though, was a little tight. I assumed it was due to my punch, so I got out the 'ol cutter and chopped it off. Nothing changed, but the flavor kept me coming back. Good thick smoke after doing a "double puff" vs. a single draw. The burn was razor sharp until it hit the halfway point (by the way, the ash never fell until then as well) and started to deviate but then corrected itself in no time. If this stick had been just a tad bit sweeter on flavor, I'd have to think about buying CASES!!
