"Good but Dry"
Have only tried the Double Toros and, although they taste good and burn fairly evenly, they are incredibly dry. I have had wrapper problems on every 2/4. Not sure with the Humidor holding steady at 70°???

"An amazing cigar, Oliva hit the nail on the head"
Ever heard the phrase, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."? This is the perfect embodiment of that phrase. This baby has thick, creamy smoke and a finish that you wont believe. Better plan to spend some time, because this big stick last's its value. If you're looking for a great smoke, Here it is.

"Disappointing Oliva Smoke"
Bought some of these long awaited sticks the other day and smoked 5 over five days. These 5 were enough to let me know that I need not purchase anymore. The contruction and burn were above average, the appearance was excellent. The flavor on the other hand was sub-par, the other Oliva blends are far superior and much better smoking values than this blend. Without going into overwhelming detail, I will say that the flavor was at times floral and sweet, but not pleasantly so. The cigar goes for strength, but does not achieve and leaves a short and tinny aftertaste that was not pleasant. Stick to the other Oliva blends.
