olivaoliva serie o maduro churchill

The flavors experienced while smoking the Oliva Serie O Maduro are just as good as the cigar's burn. It starts off with mild spice, cedar, and sweetness in the first third. The second third is a mix of stronger spice, sweetness, and rich cocoa that is the highlight of the smoking experience. The final third is more spice, nuts, and wood. Despite being labeled as full-bodied, this stick seems to be more medium to full-bodied in nature.

Oliva has done it yet again with the Serie O Maduro Churchill, and has lived up to expectations. The cigar's construction is solid, and its burn is as good as one could hope for. The flavors are varied and keep my attention from beginning to end. This cigar does have some kick to it, making it not the ideal smoke for a beginner or a fan of milder cigars. If you want something flavorful and medium to full-bodied, however, the Serie O Maduro definitely fits the bill. Maduro fans will want to put it on their list as well. In terms of price, expect to pay around $7 to $8 for a single. It's not cheap, but the quality is hard to deny, making the price seem fair. You can also find the cigar in packs of 5 or boxes of 20. If there is a cigar worthy of a box purchase, it is this one.

The Oliva Serie O Maduro Churchill receives a superb rating of four out of four stars.

Romeo y Julieta Vintage Maduro Corona


Another Maduro-wrapped cigar from a well known brand is the Romeo y Julieta Vintage Maduro. Described as being bold and spicy, the Vintage Maduro is a cigar that is made up of an interesting blend of tobaccos from four different countries.

For this review, I will be giving the Corona vitola of the Vintage Maduro line a try. It measures 5 1/2 x 44. Romeo y Julieta offers the Vintage Maduro in eight other sizes: the 6 x 43 Vintage I, 6 x 46 Vintage II, 5 x 50 Vintage III, 7 x 48 Vintage IV, 7 1/2 x 50 Vintage V, 6 1/2 x 60 Vintage VI, 6 x 50 Vintage VII, and the 6 x 50 Toro. The cigar's filler consists of a blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian tobaccos. An Ecuadorian Sumatra binder coats the filler, and a blackened Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper completes the composition. The Vintage Maduro’s strength is listed as medium to full-bodied.
