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 would be a great cigar if they were not so inconsistent with burn and draw. They are very good looking and tasting, nice white ash, flavors of chocolate & coffee. I will suffer through this bundle but, I don't know if I want to buy another despite how good they taste, One burns good the next ????
