    Gurkha is the main reason I have trust issues.

    I love Oliva cigars (they are easily in my top 5 producers) but I haven't had much luck with the "by Oliva" cigars made specifically for vendors, like the Magna Carta by Oliva for Thompson, or the Inferno by Oliva for Famous. The Magna Cartas were definitely not in my wheelhouse - pretty much just flavorless, and the Inferno, while not bad, were also not memorable.

    I look forward to seeing some reviews of this CI Saison before I give another of these vendor specific smokes a go.

    I was interested until I figured out it was a CI Exclusive...

    Have you tried the Atlantic 15th by Oliva? Good, good stuff. Not too big a fan of Oliva but I haven't really smoked a whole lot of them. I do like the Cain line, Daytona, F, Habano. The Melanio I really enjoy & the V has been hit or miss. Connecticut was ok but I've only had one while O & G aren't for me. No doubt, exclusives have been, well nicely put not something I cared for but not terribly bad. Definitely do yourselves a favor and try the Atlantic though. Really good exclusive.

    The Saison caught my attention on the cover of a CI catalog yesterday. The pricing is kinda low so I'm not expecting much. They do sound decent enough and that's probably what will sum them up. Nice flavor, decent enough for the price. I don't order from CI often though so it'll likely be quite some time before I get one though I am looking forward to hearing what others say about the Saison.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Atlantic 15th, I'm going to give them a try!

    One good one that I enjoy is the Nica Libre Potencia. Great smoke.

    I too am interested in the Saison...

    Agreed, good point. I really like the Potencias. I actually just got another box about a week ago. They are eerily similar to the Oliva Serie V.

    I'm interested to hear some thoughts, too. Typically, if Oliva has their name on it, I will try at least one.

    Insomnia sucks! I just ordered a box of the robustos. Figured for $80 and 10 free Serie sticks, it can't be too bad of a deal. Don't know if this is appropriate to put here but I'm willing to trade some of them off if anyone is interested. I should have them by Friday or so. Just PM me.

    Me Me! I blindly got a box because 1. It Oliva can't be too bad 2. Great box pricing 3. The Sampler that was included. Smoked one ROTT and was very impressed. Smooth medium to lightly full body smoke with good flavor. I'm deffenatly glad that I bought the box. If you look back in the 'What are you smoking now' thread I posted a couple of pics and a little review. CI also has a free shipping code that can be used; however I somehow missed it with my purchase.

    I have one sitting in my humidor maybe I will try it tomorrow after dinner. The label says Saison with by Oliva underneath in smaller letters. I purched a V seiies sampler and one single Saison to try.
