Review Notes: After hearing about the '94' rating, and Cigar of the Year honors, I had to jump on the Oliva bandwagon and go hunting for this cigar. Nearly impossible to find at online retailers at the moment. Luckily my B&M had a box of these, and I bought 5 sticks. First thing to say about this cigar is how good it looks. The color and sheen are impeccable. Construction is near perfect, firm and very little give. Draw is just right, not too loose, lets you know you're smoking a packed cigar. I found this to be on the full side of medium-full. First half of the cigar, which I liked more, I tasted cocoa and nuts. Second half was a bit hotter, stronger and more peppery. Burn was perfect, held very firm silver gray ash. Smoke was not very thick, but the flavor was all there. I have a few more left, will let them rest in the humi for a while.
