Oliva Serie O Robusto Review
After being impressed with other Oliva smokes I cannot wait to try this one!
I did wait for a couple of weeks for it to stabilize in the humidor after I bought it.
It smells slightly sweet and mostly earthy before lighting.
After I cut it I was happy to find that the draw was just right… not too firm or too loose. The construction is very firm throughout leaving me to believe this will be a long lasting robusto!
Once lit, the flavors were mostly toasty and cedary initially. In the second third, it began to a develop a sweet peppery finish that was accompanied by a strong nutty flavor. The last portion remained the same as the second third.
The mild-medium Oliva O made a great early evening smoke. Very pleasant flavors that matched up well a Nut Brown Ale. One interesting thing to note is that it parched me quite a bit, but the beer helped take care of that problem. I would highly recommend this cigar to fans of milder smokes. There have been some great deals online for these also.
