Review Notes: Maybe I had too high of expectations for my first Oliva cigar. I'd heard good things about the Oliva brands and the cigars was so darn attractive when I bought them. The burn and ash were excellent, my only complaint was that the flavor didn't quite live up to the rest of the cigar or my expectations. I have to agree with "ToroTom" that it was a bit tangy. Not that tangy is a bad thing. Just overall this cigar had a good, but no where near great taste. I could see that another 6 months in the humidor might really help this stick, as it had only been aging 3 months when I smoked it. I also bought a fiver of the churchill, I think I'll let them rest a bit too.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (10)
