Oliva Master Blends 3 Robusto: Quick Review

Oliva Master Blends 3 Robusto Cigar
A fine looking oval pressed cigar is what we have here. From the foot this Oliva Master Blend 3 Robusto cigar has a very faint rich tobacco aroma but the cold draw is very firm with a mix of spice and cocoa that lingers.

The first flavors were a good blast of cocoa with a bit of spice and tobacco mixed in. As the cigar burned, there were other flavors of oak, ripe fruit, cedar, lots of chocolate, sweet cream, earth and a bit of red pepper in the end.

Overall the cigar had a great flavor mix, a great outward apperance and a 65 minute smoking time, but the draw was just to tight. Couple the tight draw with a $10.99 price tag and I have to ding it a couple points.

Also, this was part of Cigar Train's freight train cigar of the month club offering.
