Oliva Series V Robusto: Quick Review

Oliva Series V Robusto Cigar
I was once told this Oliva Series V maduro was the best tasting maduro cigar made. I picked on up at Cigar Train the other day for $8.99. Let's find out how good it really is.

I picked up mild hints of fruit and cocoa from the foot and firm cold draw but the first few puffs once the cigar were burning were tasty, bold chocolate. There were other flavors in the mix, charcoal, rich tobacco, brown sugar, oak, cream and mild tree fruit.

The body was medium in the first half full in the second and the draw was cave your skull in tight the first half.

Was it the best tasting maduro I have ever smoked? No, but it was darn good with notes of chocolate full length. Even with the tight draw I loved this cigar.
