I was reading through Cigar Afficionado which rated the Melanio a 96 really? . Then I smoked one and it was good, not excellent, in my opinion. Then I took a chance on an Oliva Master Blend 3, and it is light years better than then any Oliva I have smoked to date, although there are some really excellent Olivas out there Oliva maybe rivals Padron as the current King with their lineup, but I would say Diamond Crown s lineup although not as popular as either blows them both away in terms of overall taste and burn, but not the Oliva Master Blend 3 .The Oliva Master Blend # is the rare exception that can be equaled by some cigar companies, but not sure it can really be bettered. An absolute 5 Star smoke of the highest order. I have one small Humidor holding just my Oliva MB 3s around 20 of them , and they are the absolute treat when you need the finest smoke you can buy after a tough day. An absolute go to and must have. Top 5 Cigar in the world in my opinion.
In one word...WOW !!! This cigar is Strong, Delicious and Exceptionally Smooth and Well Constructed. If you like power house cigars you ve gotta try these. They should come with a seat belt lol. Heck of a ride.
I bought an Olivia bundle for $1 with other cigars and what a surprise. This is my first master blend and I really like it. I recommend 100%.
This little gem was my lunchtime cigar for National Cigar Day and I was very happy about my choice. I got two of these with a sampler when I picked up a box of Series G tubos. Great construction and complex flavors. Excellent burn with plenty of creamy smoke. I am a huge fan of Oliva and this one is my favorite so far, kind of wish that I saved this one to finish the day instead of the Series O I have planned for dinner and the Padron 1964 for desert because I m not sure if this one can be topped. Get your hands on one of these and you won t be disappointed!!!
My daily smoke is the Oliva Serie V Belicoso or Double Robusto en Tubo. This MB 3 came as part of a free sample promo. I must say that it is the best freebie I have had, ever.It is a well balanced full flavored well constructed cigar. I am not normally a fan of box pressed cigars, but this is one of the best cigars I’ve smoked in a while. It is a bargain at twice the price.
Very good cigar. One of the best taste I ve had.
Love these cigars but always to expensive for me to buy
