It's not uncommon for cigar makers to reserve the choicest portions of their crop for family use only. Such was the case with Oliva's El Cobre...until now. Named for a Cuban mining town, El Cobre embodies that country's rich heritage both in appearance and flavor. Its Nicaraguan blend is cloaked in a gorgeous CT Broadleaf wrapper. Expect a phenomenally robust cigar with a long, earthy finish and spice to spare. All it's missing is a warning label. Can you tame El Cobre? Buy a bundle if you dare!
This is a rich, full-bodied cigar that really satisfies those that like a smoke that has body. The draw is smooth, it burns evenly and it had no "uneven" points where the flavor got bitter.
Oliva always does an excellent job. I just picked up this bundle and true to history, a great medium body flavorful smoke. The burn is consistent and enduring i puff a few, go to the green, putt, come back, still burning smooth . No bite, good all the way down.
This cigar has more kick than Bruce Lee.More bounce than Charro.More muskrat love than the Captain and Tenille.More power than Norm Cash.And more polyester than Don Knotts.At these prices they are an absolute Ron LeFlore........er.......I mean steal!
