They’re fraternal twins: premium cigars with the exact same blend, but in round “parejo” and box-pressed versions. We sample 5, to find the specific flavor differences between them.
#Nowsmoking: Oliva Serie G Churchill
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Size: 7″ x 50, box-pressed
Wrapper: African Cameroon
Binder & Filler: Nicaragua
Dominant Flavors: Cedar, sweet spice, citrus, light earthiness
Where it’s at: A leathery cold draw is followed by a sweet, creamy and woody start. Draw is effortless with high smoke volume. A tangy citrusy note enters the mix as earthiness drifts below the surface. Retrohale reveals sharp pepper. Cigar remains balanced in flavors and body throughout. Ash is darkish grey and firm, even when tapped. I recently smoked through a 5-pack of Oliva Serie G Maduro Churchills, and the Cameroon is an equally enjoyable toss-up. Excellent with morning coffee. A good “Nicaraguan starter” cigar for newbs, too.
