Few companies produce cigars are as reliably excellent as Oliva. Time after time, they release blends that score top marks, win awards, and take over the humidors of tons of smokers. In fact, Oliva has had a cigar into Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list every year since 2005. While many promising companies would be happy with a single appearance (or one every now and again ), Oliva lives in the winner’s circle, which speaks volumes about the company’s commitment to satisfying, high quality blends.
The Oliva Serie O is yet another world-class stick in an already outstanding portfolio. It was Cigar Aficionado’s #11 cigar in 2013, and boasts a 94 rating. The award went to the version with the Sun Grown Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, which the judges praised for its flavors of salty earth, with hints of dried cherries and cocoa. There’s also an Oliva Serie O Maduro, which trades Habano leaf for Connecticut Broadleaf to produce a flavor profile that features earth, espresso, and spice.
In classic Oliva fashion, the filler blend is Cuban-seed leaves grown in Nicaragua. More specifically, this cigar features tobacco from Jalapa, Condega and Estelí.
If you want something new and innovative, there are probably other sticks to focus on. But if you want time-tested excellence, the Oliva Serie O Habano or Oliva Serie O Maduro are both reliable cigars that never fail to deliver.
