Few cigars have garnered more praise and acceptance from smokers and reviewers than the full-powered Serie V line from Oliva. This Nicaraguan puro boasts of a rare combination of full body and smooth finish—and it delivers. The five inch by 54 ring gauge Double Robusto is a rich cigar, though not particularly complex. Construction is good, the burn OK (though a little ragged), and the smoke production excellent. Tastes include nuts, dry coffee, some dryness, and a bit of hay. I paid $6.25 for the stick and would gladly smoke more. I think you’ll feel the same.
Verdict = Buy.
