"I don't get it..."
Wow, got a free 5 pack with a box purchase, and sadly, that's all they're worth. Fan of Oliva, especially their Conn Reserve Torpedo, but these are hot, impossible draw, just not even a good "yard cigar". Won't buy.

"Good medium+ taste, draw, and burns nice."
Very enjoyable - it was my first experience with Oliva cigars. Have purchase more.

"Not pleased, even for a low-cost stick."
Was looking for an Oliva product more in my price range so I could enjoy a cigar more often. The Vindicator looked great but tasted terrible all the way through to the end. Won't being buying them again. Still a fan of Oliva though.

"Not a fan"
I was disappointed with these. While they certainly do look nice, the draw and flavor were sub par. The free Inferno I received with my five-pack tasted much better.

I bought 5 and have smoked 2 so far. Both have had an almost impossible draw. Not much taste or kick either. I will try the last 3 after letting them sit in the humidor for another 6 months and see if they are different. I LOVE OLIVA but these and the 3 George's Reserves have been nearly unsmokable. Too bad since they are going for $57 a box right now :-(

"Great Gar Good Price"
Great gar and a fair price. I got it as a freebee and hesitantly smoked it cause I wanted a short smoke that night. A pleasant surprise indeed. I found it Med to Full, that started slow but got a lot smoother and tastier quickly. The burn & draw was perfect, like a $10 stick. I'm buying a box of Toro today. TRY IT, you'll like it.

"Good Smoke, As Described"
Got this as a freebee with my order. Good smoke as described on the website. Strong cigar and full flavor. Burns true. Easily a $6 stick. Will buy a box on my next order. I have had better smokes but many more not as good as this one. This cigar does not disappoint. Cant wait to try the churchills that I actually bought :o)>>

Bought a box just because I've never had an Oliva that disappointed. Good draw, great burn and beautifully constructed stick. Really delivered on the flavor from beginning to end.

This cigar looks great, but is harsh and bitter. Oliva is known for great cigars and I was very disappointed. From Warlock to Cain to the Oliva brand itself they had to come up with a cigar that was affordable because they have priced themselves out of the market. NUBs are some of my favorites, but getting very pricy. For an affordable cigar this one does not make the grade at all. Very disappointed! Will be more careful in believing reviews that rave a cheap cigar, it never ads up!

When I first started smoking it I wasn't impressed. Not much smoke and not a whole lot of flavor. Then the draw loosened up. The flavors and strength came through and rest of the smoke was fantastic. Another great cigar by Oliva.
