The Oliva Serie G Figurado is one of the more interesting shapes you'll ever see. This bulbous beast is a unique perfecto with all the great flavor that Oliva is always known for. This medium bodied cigar sports a beautiful Cameroon wrapper and is an affordable smoke. The time to buy is now.
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^^
The perfect is the enemy of the good - VoltaireThese are about as good as they get. Great balance,copious amounts of smoke and a smooth creamy taste throughout the entire hour plus smoke.
Just had one of these last night. On initial inspection it has an awesome wrapper leaf with very small veins. It has a small foot for lighting which shows what kind of craftmanship went into making this cigar. The first few draws are very tight due to the small foot but on the third or fourth draw it begins to open up because the foot is getting bigger. Very pleasant smoke. It starts out as medium bodied but it tapers throughout the cigar so near the end I would say that it turned into more of a full bodied cigar. I'm going to get a lot more of these to smoke over the years!!
I don't know if you can even go to wrong with the Oliva line. I haven't met one yet that I haven't liked. I won a box of the Figurado's on an auction and what a good find they were. But even at the regular FS price, they are still worth the value of these fine sticks. Some of the ones I have smoke were a little hard to start (rolled too tight at the lighting tip). But when they get going it is a pleasurable treat. Good even burn with a nice light grey ash.
