Overall Score: 9.0

Very attractive wrapper. Somewhat toothy with nice medium-brown color. No laser engraving on the wrapper as last two editions. Tastes very much like the Oliva Series O. Much bolder in flavor than the Master Blends 2. Spicy and very full-bodied, yet very smooth. Flavors of aged cedar, dark, earthy flavors. Burly in flavor and aroma. A heavy cigar.
