Oliva G robusto

I had this 4½x50 Oliva G robusto in my humidor for years and always ignored it. Whenever I smoke an Oliva I usually go for the El Cobre or the V series. Today I decided to do something else and go for the G series.

This cigar is probably the most squared cigar I have ever seen, I can’t even call this box pressed, it looks like it has been factory pressed, that’s how squared it is. The wrapper is oily, got one vein running over it and has some color differences. The construction feels good and I smell a deep and strong hay aroma. The predraw is a bit loose and I taste a strong tobacco flavor.

I taste a strong coffee flavor that soon changes to a full earth flavor. After an inch I also taste some sweetness but it disappears soon and takes the coffee with it.

Halfway the cigar gets nice and spicy with some sweetness on the background. I also taste a nice herbal flavor.

This short stick lasted me for 45 enjoyable minutes. The cigar produces a lot of smoke, which has a peppery smell to it and looks a bit dull and pale. The draw and burn are great. The firm ash is light colored. This cigar is full flavored and medium to full bodied.

Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, I wonder why I hardly ever smoke these and usually go for the V series, these are just as tasty
