I've been a big Oliva fan for many years. The Oliva G Serie is the best value for cigars to be found anywhere. A consistently smooth smoke. It retains its flavor, even when re-lit. The Serie G cigarillo is the finest short smoke to be found. Great taste, burns even, a pleasing aroma, even to non-smokers. About two out of every 50 will have a loose wrapper. Not a bad trade-off.
As a fan of the Serie G, and a first time buyer from Famous Smoke I was pretty excited about this purchase. Firstly, this is a very small cig -not what you'd expect for a Robusto size. In fact I called customer service to see if they sent me cigarillos-they assured me it was a robusto but did offer to take them back, which seemed like a hassle for a 5 pk. My order included other cigars of the same ring size (50) as well as smaller - all of which were bigger than this cig. Upon lighting one up, it was ok at best - not up to other Serie G's I've had. Aside from being extraordinarily small, it also turned out to be very loose. I burned through this thing in 10 min tops - really sad for a quality brand. Bottom line, save your money and buy something else. This one will disappoint you.
Bought these for our wedding cigar bar and could not be happier!!!! Shipped fast and great prices!!
Absolutely love these. Construction, burn, smoke production, and flavors are great. Olivia makes some of the nicest cigars and cigars that don’t real the bank. Just bought a box of these as the cold weather is coming and the 41/2” robusto’s are perfect if you don’t want to be out on the cold for an hour.
Very good all around for the money
I bought a box of the tubos here after buying a cello Churchill in a store. It s a very nice cigar for the price. The wrapper has a nice darkish color to it and the smell before lighting is awesome. I wish they made a candle with that scent. On lighting, the taste is a little peppery but it mellows out very quickly. This is a cigar you re going to want to smoke slow and steady. The ash is snow white and it hangs on to the cigar for a while. I can often go nearly a third of the way through one of the toros before the ash drops. I call these budget Padrons because they smoke a lot like the Serie 1923 Padron cigars. If you want some of that same kind of flavor without paying fifteen bucks a stick, this is the cigar to get. I can t think of a bad thing to say about this cigar.
Excellent in all qualities, burn was perfect, consistant to the last draw, flavourful and smooth as silk..only complaint is that it was a wee bit small, wish it had lasted for longer. Definitly would buy this cigar again.
somewhat new to cigars but enjoyed this very much nice taste and appearance.
It was my first and very pleasant experience with cigars made of Nicaragua grown tobacco. I can only describe my feelings, but it s like having candy store in your mouth^^ Sweet creamy flavor with the light peppery overtones on the second half^^ Now I even more eager to try other OLIVA series for sure^^
This is my favorite everyday cigar. You can't beat the quality for the price and this is true with any Oliva Product. For an everyday cigar I rate this cigar a 100 in every category. One reviewer did critique the draw. I may get 1 out of a box of 25 that is on the tight side but that is still really good.
Had one of these the other night while mowing the lawn. It was great right from the start! Nice solid construction and great burn and draw. Smooth as any cigar I've ever had and tasted great from start to finish!
what a great cigar,i have smoked many cigars from hon.and nic.and dom,rep. and cuba and this is one of the top 5 smokes that i have tried.Perfect construction,easy draw and a great deal of flavour,a 9 out of 10 from me.
