"Unique Flavor!"

Review Notes: I previously smoked the torpedo of this line and I rated it a 91. This double-corona was the same flavor, and one I have never experienced except with the Oliva "O". This cigar was a little intimidating to look at, with its large girth and length and almost black, dark maduro wrapper. I expected it to be over-powering and maybe bitter. It was a little rustic looking. However, this cigar was truly a pleasure from beginning to end. Burn was perfectly even, draw was fine via bulls-eye punch hole. The pre-light aroma was magnificent. This was one of the most satisfying smokes I have come across. Flavor was chock full of sweet spices, with a long, impressive finish of smoky wood. It was also very peppary, and I can't quite place my finger on what all those sweet spices were. Even with all the spicy-sweetness, this cigar retained balance throughout. The smoky-woodsy flavor kind of neutralized the sweet, spiciness for a full-bodied, smooth smoke with plenty of kick to it. Into the 2/3 point, some creamy overtones developed, making it even more palatable. There were also some citrus notes and sharp pine. This is definitely one of the finest Nicaraguan Puros I have smoked. I was hoping this Oliva would be as good as the one I had a couple months ago while in San Fran. It was even better, because it was longer lasting and had a better draw than the torpedo. The ashes were greyish and perfectly layered, hanging on for well over 1". I nubbed this thing to the very end and it lasted for about 1 hour, 15 min. I was lovin every minute of it, and licked my fingers when I was done. If you are looking for FLAVOR, and one that you will not find in any other cigar that I know of, try one of these babies. Just the thought of this cigar makes me start to drool!

Review Notes: Great looking, full bodied cigar. Cigar has complex flavors, but is a little rough around the edges even with 19 months of age on it. Draw was great but the burn was quite uneven and kept going out. All in all, ok.

"A little young"

Review Notes: This is a full-bodied cigar. It started out a little rough but briefly developed into a smooth, flavorful cigar, but then it turned rough again. For a short time the flavors were very good, a little cedar, pepper and spice. Good burn and draw. I think it needs at least a year of aging to reach its potential. Mine was aged 6 months and it was still too young. Nice band though.

"Great maduros"

Review Notes: I didn't realize these were torpedos when I ordered them. I am not a fan of torpedo, too uncomfy in the mouth. I did have a little trouble with the draw and was forced to clip off more than I wanted to. Nice complex flava and a very thick leathery wrapper. I do prefer the ole a bit more.

"Good, a must try"

Review Notes: I have a soft spot in my heart for Oliva O Maduros - they were one of my first "favorites" a few years ago - in 2002, I could not get enough of these dark silky wrapped beauties. These cigars possess a unique pulchritudinous, amplified by what may arguably be amont the finest ashes for any maduro. These cigars stay lit forever - they draw well, but can be a bit veiny. The flavor is spicy - tastes of pepper, cedar and other wood tones, tempered with periods of softness - the flavor will not disappoint or bore you. The value is not bad considering its competition at this price ($6.50) - you will find better though, hence the score of 7 in this category. Overall, this line of cigars is a must try - I'd start with this one.
