Oliva Serie V Belicoso 2017
I have less than 50 NC, this is one of them. I like a Oliva or a Padron once in a while when I feel feed up with CC.
This was the last one from a 5-pack I bought from a BOTL. The cigar is perfectly rolled, firm and with a near perfect wrapper. The cold draw is spicy, peppery and a bit hearty (abundant, rich, or flavorful enough to satisfy the appetite).
First third is a blast of pepper, chili and that shallow, straight forward, strongness I usually find in nicaraguan cigars. Jacked up coffee, and maybe ceder?
Second third is like the first only stronger and the without the ceder part.
In the final third of the cigar not much happens. I can feel in my chest that Im hyped up, Like I have taken pre-work out, guess it’s the nicotine. It’s a fun cigar, one-dimensional but consistent and reliable. I will probably never smoke more than 1-2 NC per every other month but when I do this will be one. It’s like Coca Cola, not that fancy but you know what you get and from time to time it’s what you want.
