Review Notes: Recently, I've been trying to smoke some milder cigars just to keep things fresh. Problem with some milds is that they start off dry/harsh and don't improve much. Well, this cigar has ended that dry spell. A medium bodied smoke that left a nice sweet after-taste in the mouth, almost no harshness or bitterness at all. Draw was perfect, but IMO, the box press is a little too severe, feels odd in the hand but it's just aesthetics. Agree that the ash is a little flaky, but it easily held past an inch. The last third of the stick was a little more spicy/hot/peppery, but probably because I rushed it. I don't care for spice in a cigar. I thought the Serie V was supposed to be the "lead singer" of the Oliva brand, but the Serie G has enough material for it's own solo album. I've said it in other Oliva reviews, but I'll say it again, try one of them. Any of them. I'm glad I did.
