The tale of Olor cigars reads like the comeback story of the century. Olor launched as a bestselling exclusive selection at Famous Smoke Shop in 1988; the original blend was made by none other than Arturo Fuente Cigars, and earned a very respectable tasting score by Cigar Aficionado magazine. But as time has passed, production of these mild cigars moved around the DR - General Cigar Company tried cracking the Olor code in a mellow second edition, before handing the job to Manuel Quesada at his MATASA factory in the Dominican Republic. It's this current version that has been hailed as the best Olor yet, surpassing the flavor profile and popularity of the original blend.
Rebranded in 2012 as Olor by Manuel Quesada cigars, Don Manuel uses a mild, yet richer tasting blend of Dominican Cuban seed tobaccos and a zesty Nicaraguan binder seamlessly rolled in a buttery Connecticut Shade wrapper leaf. The smoke brims with toasty-nutty flavors underpinned by sweet cedary notes and a fragrant aroma for a mellow and relaxing cigar that's ideal for new cigar smokers who want the benefits of enjoying a tried-and-true premium at an affordable price.
If you're looking for a cigar with more depth and complexity, reach for Olor Fuerte cigars. Made by General Cigar Company at their Villazon facility in Honduras, Olor Fuerte offers a medium-to-full-bodied blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Brazilian long fillers with a savory Mexican San Andras binder rolled in a dark, toothy Talanga Cubano wrapper that was originally developed by famed master blender, Jesus Fuego. The smoke is chewy, creamy and ultra-smooth, offering earthy flavors of wood, leather, sweet tobacco, and surrounds you with a scrumptious aroma.
And now, the trifecta is complete, as the legendary Tabacalera Perdomo has been invited in to be a part of the Olor Cigars tradition. Nick Perdomo has contributed three savory recipes under the Olor Nicaragua cigars banner, each offering clad in his esteemed Connecticut, Sun Grown and Maduro wrapper selections. Olor Nicaragua Natural (Connecticut) brims with toasted nut, coffee and earth; the Sun Grown version adds a layer of hearty and tangy sensations, while the Olor Nicaragua Maduro delivers a natural aged sweetness. Best of all, Olor Nicaragua maintains the tradition of being a stunningly delicious, yet still remarkably affordable smoke!
