Oliva Serie V Ligero Especial Figurado


Back in April i got a box of these from one of my friends who was visiting Dubai from the USA. I was pleased and confused at the same time because these cigar looks just amazing and  i haven’t had any Oliva before. By now I’ve smoked few and found here what i found:

Size: 6 x 60
Wrapper: Habano Sun Grown
Binder: Nicaraguan
Jalapa Valley Ligero
Pre Light and construction:
this cigar is a real peace of art. well made with no soft spot. the wrapper is very oily and almost flawless. the pre light draw was little tight do to the foots shape but if opens to be perfect after an inch. the flavors here Woody, sweet and spicy. The the burn wasn’t good at1st but win you pass the beginning if goes so evenly. the ash was very nice solid and white that hangs for long.
1st Third:
Sweet spicy smoke from the first puff with back ground of dark chocolate and earthiness. Medium to full body but still smooth smoke with no harshness. More spices and pepper one inch down with delicious sweet smoke. Hints of wood and sweet leather  shows by the end of this third.
2nd Third:
Shots of leather and more chocolate here with balanced amount of woodiness and spiciness. Amazing floral aromas of chocolate and espresso complement the complex smoking experience. The body is full by the midway point with of flavors of espresso leather and earthiness shows how good the habano goes with the ligero.
Final Third:
At this part this cigar gets very Nicaragua and show every thing about it, spicy peppery smoke loaded with sweetness chocolate leather espresso, earthiness and rich tobacco flavors. Very complex smoke that doesn’t give you any chance to be bored. Full body and smooth complex smoke.
Final Thoughts:
Beautiful cigar and flavorful smoke. this cigar not for the newbies but for the experienced ones. it ages very well to get mellower and more complex.  i guess this is a must try cigar.
