Olor Nicaragua Robusto
Olor Nicaragua Robusto Cigar
By Rick Pate (a.k.a. “tachammer” at www.cigarzilla.net)
These cigars start out with the typical spiciness of Nicaraguan tobaccos but with a little smoothness added. I couldn’t quite put my finger on how to describe it. It’s almost like a little of the edge was taken off. Perfect draw and burn and the wrapper was beautiful.
I like Olor Fuerte but these are even better. The cigar built as it got shorter but never to the point where it kind of burned your tongue. It is a good, rounded but full bodied cigar.
