Review Notes: It has been a while since I last reviewed this cigar and I feel it has earned a second mention. This Oliva offering follows the same lines as I have come to expect from the line, smooth smoking cigars that have a great draw and an unmistakable firmness. The flavors flow with a heavy volume of smoke from the perfect cap. If construction were the only factor, this would be a 9 or 10 cigar. The flavors are good and leathery, but not at the level they should be givien the B&M price this cigar tends to demand. However, if you look around for fiver or box deals, you can get this one for a very worth while price.

"Cigar of the year...probably"

Review Notes: Some reviewers are calling this the "Cigar of the Year for 2007", and I can see the argument. Partly because the class of 07' cigars was weaker than usual, but it would still make a good showing in most years. The cnstruction is typical Oliva...solid and pretty to look at. The draw was nearly perfect and the burn as even as any I've seen. The flavor was not as complex as advertised. That said, I did like the flavor and found it to be mild-medium leather with nutty tones and a nice aroma. A solid hour burn too. I give this one an A- and expect the price to come down a bit after the hype has dissapated. A good 4-5 dollar cigar and a GREAT 2-3 dollar cigar.
