Oliva Serie O Petit Perfecto

Oliva Serie O Petite Perfecto Cigar

Score: 9.3

I’m particularly partial to the double perfecto shape, and was very impressed with the balance of flavor and smoothness the Serie O “Petit Perfecto.” It was flawlessly rolled and perfectly packed, resulting in a very clean burning cigar that, despite its four-inch length, burned well close to an hour. Every puff was rich, earthy and sweet with a toasty finish, and I held on to it as long as I could before finally letting it go out with about a half-inch remaining. Even at that point the smoke never turned bitter. Highly recommended.
