Review Notes: I'm a big fan of Cameroon, and the Perfecto shape in general, so I bought a box of these (48ct) hoping to snag a true value smoke and perhaps an alternative to the AF Short Story. All in all, it's the flavor that really keeps these from being all that they could be. Most exhibited the very unpleasant bite of what I can best describe as burning pine pitch. If you've ever been camping and threw or had some other idiot throw wet pine into the pit, you know what I'm talking about. I would definitely stay away from these until Oliva puts some better filler into the blend, as methinks therein lies the problem. If that can be fixed, these may have potential. Until then, if you're into this shape, and you're a Cameroon fan in general, I would suggest the big brother to this one: Oliva Serie G Figurado. Until next time: Smoke Smarter, Not Harder!
