Oliva serie V torpedo

A beautiful oily Habano sun grown wrapper with a deep aroma, like hay but with a little sweetness that comes in a 6 inch size and a 56 ring gauge. The filler is a ligero from the Jalapa valley.
The cigar has a typical Oliva flavor, something you can even taste in their budget lines even though there is a huge difference between all the lines. The V is the strongest of their lines and this torpedo has a flavor of black pepper and leather. The leather is slowly growing in strength and towards the end the cigar gains power and the leather is accompanied by some toast.

This torpedo missed the complexity of the belicoso; the flavor is consistent but not really complex. The smoke is full, thick and plenty, the ash is close to white.
Would I buy this cigar again? I think I will stick to the belicoso of the V series
