Quick Smoke: Oliva Serie V Double Robusto

25 Nov 2012



Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This cigar burst on the scene a few years ago, as Oliva was establishing itself as a creator of full-bodied, premium cigars. Most of the company’s previous blends had been milder and toward the value end of the price spectrum. Years later, it’s still an excellent, consistently well-made cigar, even if it doesn’t have all of the buzz it once did. With cocoa, leather, espresso, and earth, along with excellent construction, it’s a cigar I turn to often. Although I think I slightly prefer the new Serie V Melanio blend, I can heartily recommend this cigar.

Verdict = Buy.

    Love 'em, but pretty much guaranteed to make me feel ill. I don't smoke as many Olivas as I used to because with all the increases and taxes they've moved up into the same cost category as Undercrowns and others that are hot at the moment. It's a shame, really, because at the Fuente/Padron price point the Serie V was an awesome option.
