This is one of those wildly successful and innovative cigars from the Oliva family. When I first smoked one I wsn’t expecting much but, I have got to tell you, it surprised me. It was a wonderful cigar!

Now I am expecting a lot and I hope this one does not disappoint.

Yo! The Light!

Since it is so thick it is somewhat difficult to light. However, now that it is lit it is drawing very well. The draw is a little tight but not bad at all.

I am about 1/3″ in now and it’s still burning a bit hot. There’s a good amount of spice and it is basically a full-bodied smoke, which I like.

Overall, the spice notes stick the whole way through but there isn’t much nuance to this cigar. I like the strength, the draw is pretty good, it burns evenly, and the spice is nice, but I cannot say that this is a great cigar. But it’s definitely good.

Alright, this is a fairly expensive cigar so it better be good!

Looks like a very well made cigar and it has a good amount of oils. There really isn’t anything not to like about the way this thing looks. Perfect.

Flame!

Full disclosure: Usually I drink Wild Turkey and a Cherry Coke when I smoke a cigar. Tonight, I am drinking a Ricardo’s Red Rocket Ale from Bear Republic. I went to BevMo looking to see how large their selection of whiskey is nowadays, which is paltry, and bought a six pack of Bear Republic beer. The flavors of this beer are fairly strong (supposedly it got 95 points from some group though).

Now onto the cigar!
