Oliva O torpedo

The Oliva O series is well known and appreciated all over the world. The cigar is made from a Nicaraguan Habano binder and filler with a sun grown Habano wrapper. There are nine sizes available and there is even a complete maduro line, but I smoked the 6×52 natural torpedo

The cigar has a wood and barnyard smell with the recognizable Oliva band. The wrapper is quite light colored and oily with a few veins. The construction is good and so is the predraw which tastes like spicy raisin.

I taste a spicy but sweet coffee flavor. The sweetness is mild dominant. After a third I taste a sweet wood flavor and halfway that flavor gets company from some herbs.

The sweetness is getting less dominant and now I taste an earthy flavor with wood and herbs and all flavors grow in strength.

This cigar lasted me for an hour and thirty-five minutes. I got a lot of thick white smoke and a great draw. The ash is light colored but frayed and reasonably firm. The burn of this medium flavored and medium bodied cigar is great.

Would I buy this cigar again? I liked the cigar but prefer the G and V series
