Cigar of the Week: Flor De Oliva 550 Natural

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The base flavors are earthy, woody, plus some natural sweetness, which I presume may come from some Jalapa that may be in the filler. They also have a nice little spicy edge on the finish. Moreover, the Sumatra wrapper not only balances nicely with the Nicaraguan core, it offers a really nice aroma, too. All in all, a well-made, medium-bodied, full-flavored cigar.

 

Almost as impressive as the flavor is the price on these cigars. It’s pretty tough to beat considering the quality of these bundled firsts. When I first started buying them, they were under $35 for a bundle of 25. They’re now up to $45.99 for 20; that’s still impressive, but if you can grab these cigars on sale, you can really make out nicely.

Bargain hunters who go through a lot of cigars and don’t want to sacrifice flavor for cost should definitely give these shot.
