was not expecting to really like these cigars but since they were a freebie and by oliva I figured they were worth a try. I was really surprised how good they were I am usually a mild medium cigar man and these were said to be full flavored. They do have a lot of flavor but the strength is more mild medium. I bought a ten pack very soon after my orignal purchase and will buy these again in the future I dont really know what to compare them to but the taste was relly nice. the draw was very good also. Draw and taste are proably the two most important things I look for in a cigar the price is also reasonable.
The mix of peppery and sweet flavors is a winner for me. Very consistent, and a VERY easy draw. These sticks have given me confidence to try other Olivas.
I hated to put this one out. It burned so great. The flavor was rich and yet mellow. It surrendered a mouthful of excellent flavors from start to finish. It s consistent; the whole time you get the same great flavor only richer and richer. I smoked this soldier until it was too hot to hold anymore. I m buying more.
These were my favorites for a long while then tryed 3rd degree....lol but these are super close to V series and for the price ....well can t be beat...try the sparks too this little 46x4.5 are great and burn slow . Olivia is killing it..and costs are super reasonable ...I m going to keep these in my humi, have good 20 Flashpoints and 3rd degrees always...can t be beat 90plus rated all day
I bought a 10 pack with my last order just on a whim to give them a try. The first inch was incredibly peppery. Then it smoothed out to a very delicious spice flavoring, nice burn....I will buy some more of these as they fit nicely with a good, strong cup of coffee....
I got five free Infernos with a recent purchase, and they are quite excellent! Great flavor, even draw, consistent burn and fantastic construction!
I used to smoke Gloria Cubana Series R No. 4 and 7 s as my go to smoke and still love them but I got these as a gift in an order and find them perfect for a quick smoke outside to relax...its almost all I smoke! Just wish I could buy them by the box!!!
Great cigar would highly recommend.
This is my first cigar review. Not a pro or an expert. I’m a non-smoker of anything except for an occasional cigar. I’ve been doing this for a number of years. This year I smoke around 3 sticks per week usually on weekends . I ordered these based on recommendations from FS customer service. Received the 5 pack on sale today and had to smoke one right away. The appearance and construction is good. It was easy to light and stayed lit all the way through. I noticed a sweet spice from beginning to end. The earthiness and leathery taste became more noticeable after the first inch and full body became more noticeable about mid-way during smoking seesion. I finished this smoke when there was only a nub and it never got hot. I did have some tequila with this and thought it went well. The others will have to wait in my humidor for a few days before I try another. So far, I have no complaints and feel this was a good buy.
Purchased 3 5-packs when FS ran a promotion. After 2 weeks in the coolidor, lit one up. Was not expecting much in terms of flavor, but was surprised at how good it was. Burn was even, there was no unraveling, ash held firm for 1-2 inches, and I smoked it down to my fingers. Initial thought was that it reminded me of a poor man s Oliva Serie O. Not surprising since Oliva makes these as well. The second cigar experience was the same as the first. Definitely recommend if they go on sale; but at regular price I would spend several $ more and buy the Oliva Serie O Toro my favorite go-to .
