Oliva makes great cigars. The Cain 550 is more proof. Excellent construction and burn. Great draw and ash. Complex and consistent. You can't go wrong with this one.
Great taste. Smokes well.
This cigar is my absolute favorite smoke for three reasons: taste, consistency, and construction. It's a pleasure from the moment you light the foot. Wonderful spice, mottled cocoa and espresso, and the underlying maduro sweetness blend together in a match made in heaven. One caveat is the ligero strength, but for me that s a positive factor. You won't be disappointed.
as close to a real Cuban as you can get.
I have smoked many, many cigars in 15 years. This is by far the best non-Cuban I've had. In fact, it is better than most of the Cubans I have smoked. Believe the hype!
These cigars are the best I've ever smoked. The packaging might be a little excessive (I'd rather pay for the cigar than for the presentation!); Nevertheless, it is an exceptional cigar!
I recently purchased this stick in a best of full flavored sampler here. It was the last of the sticks that I got around two and as such it aged in my humidor for only about two weeks.Let's simply say that it was fantastic. First, I accumulated a 5 inch ash on this, I seriously had more ash than cigar by the end.The taste is subtle yet complex, the draw was nice; not too firm but not at all weak. I enjoyed this on a night when the outside temp was less than 40 degrees (I do not smoke in my home) and it was worth the frozen fingers.It perfectly complimented the hearty vegetable stew I'd just enjoyed with notes of figs, and caramel.The crazy thing is how this cigar ended, with a strong taste of brown sugar.Simply amazing and not to be missed, buy a couple of these; smoke one now and age the other for a few months!
An excellent consistant smoke in every way. Nutty with a hint of spice.
This cigar is simply amazing.
A sumptuous and truly beautiful smoke. Construction of the very highest order, delivering a superb evenness of burn throughout, the aroma and flavour of this cigar were beyond reproach. From the first draw, after comprehensive toasting, a rich butteriness mixed with spice and leather that endured with amazing consistency from start to finish. Never harsh and with magnificent oily, blue smoke, this cigar burned for in excess of 2 hours with minimal resting and never required relighting. A truly first class smoke to be savoured by the aficianado who prefers a fuller flavour. 10/10.
