I've smoked one and a half bundles of these cigars. They are consistently solid, even burning with a great mid-length creamy and nutty flavor. Ash is a solid, even light grey color and usually falls about every two inches. They are better than many premiums and super-premiums. The best thing is that they are just over one dollar a stick! What a deal.
I love this cigar. It is the perfect length and the mildness is always enjoyment to me. The smell is one I never get tired of it.
The taste is superb. The construction and draw need no more refining. As I mentioned above I am in love with these smokes.
This is a great cigar for the price. Nice and smooth, sweet draw. Cant beat the price. You won t go wrong if you want an everyday smoke that won t break the bank, or leave you feeling dizzy afterwards. Hope the word doesn t get out, and they raise the price
Large Presidente size. Perfect draw through all 20 cigars. Definitely a strong (or full) cigar. What's strange is that the cigars come coated with a sweet sugar flavor on the wrapper, which you can rinse off or the sugar eventually just goes away. It's similar to a sweet tipped machine made cigar. All in all, you can't go wrong for the price. It beat the (2) Famous brands that we purchased at the same time. I didn't wait to smoke them (sorry perfectionsists); I am sure they get better in the humidor.
Ordered the bundle of 20 along with three 5 packs of Macanudos, Punch, & Romeo Y Julieta's - finished these before the others & re-ordering more! These will always be in my humidor.
I'VE TRIED OTHER CIGARS....BUT I ALWAYS COME BACK TO THIS BRAND...FOR THE MONEY, IT CANNOT BE TOPPED
Me and my cigar smoking buddies have named the whole Flor de Oliva line of cigars as our "old faithfuls", since they never let us down. We often get the expensive $8-$10 smokes and are dissappointed, these are great cigars regardless of the price. I smoke a lot of different cigars, but when I want a smoke that I know will hit the spot I often pull an "old faithful" out of the humidor.
My wife and I have both been fans of the Flor De Olivia Gold Torpedo's for some time. Smooth and creamy with a buttery wrapper. On my last FS oder, I asked to have a bundle of these thrown in. Hey, they were cheap :>)Big surprise, they have blown out my previous favorite budget stick, the all-American F.D. Graves Judges Cave. Look, I smoke cigars. No, not just at dinner parties with rich friends. I mean everyday. I'm not rich, so cost is a big deal. To steadily smoke many of the cigars I love, would approach the cost of a coke habit.It took me a long time to pick my favorite online cigar vendor, Famous Smoke - and it took me a long time to pick it as my daily smoker. I still love the Judge's Cave. I can feel my grandfather is nearby every time I light one. It's the cigar that put the hand rollers nearly out of business. You fat cats can extol the virtues of cigars I can't afford. Me, I care about value. So getting me to say there is a better "nickel cigar" out there than the F.D. Graves, this is a very big deal. The Natural Flor De Olivia is a nutty & rich, ultra-smooth full flavored cigar at machine made prices. It's balanced yet complex, sometimes leaving me realizing I've got a smile on my face for no good reason. They silently scoff, "go ahead and light me a third time" still smooth down at a 2" length. They don't start out hard as a dowel, and tolerate a fair amount of chomping without coming apart. In short, I think this cigar is simply of superior quality and at FS prices, a superior value.Maybe the earlier review just got a bad cigar, I've had the misfortune of bad 4 dollar cigars. My experience with these was far different, my first bundle was consistent cigar to cigar. The closest thing to it in my humidor are my Fuente Curley Head Deluxe Naturals. But they are twice the price of these Flor De Olivia's? I don't think I'll be buying many more Curley Heads, other than during road emergencies.I actually think the Flor is smoother, and has a better quality wrapper If you are searching for a 3 dollar taste at 1/3 the price, you owe it to yourself to try these.
After receiving some FDO's in a sampler several years ago, I thought, wow, this is a good cigar, no matter the price. Ordered a bundle of robustos. Then reordered, several times. As time went by, I was tempted to try other brands (sound familiar ?).Stayed with some for a while, but would come back to the FDO brand. They remained consistant as always, but I still continued to experiment with other tempting brands. Some, quite a bit more expensive, others not so. My bottom line here, is that "I personally" don't think I have found a cigar (bundle or box), that can compare to an FDO. We all know, however, that taste is a subjective thing. So this whole thing is just my opinion. I'm sure that there are some $10 or $15 dollar sticks out there that would compete with the FDOs, but at four or five a day, I'M NOT EVEN TEMPTED. As someone we all know said, "Happy Smokes"!!
