Review: Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial 2010

This is my review of the Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial series 2010 release.



Nose:

Having previously enjoyed the Oliva 2011 I didn't think I'd be disappointed by the 2010.   I picked up a strong smell of fresh roasted coffee with a strong backing of earth.  The nose on this has you eager to light up.

 

Construction:

As a limited production every year you know that Oliva…

Review: Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente

This is my review of the Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente.



Nose:

I picked up a mixture of cedar and other woods.  There was strong earth coming off of it, but not much else going on here.

Construction:

The wrapper on this is a rich brown color with flat smooth veins running throughout.  The brown in the wrapper isn't one consistent color, it is mottled throughout.  I found the band to be…

Review: Nica Libre Potencia Belicoso

This is my review of the Nica Libre Potencia in the Belicoso vitola.

Construction:

The Nica Libre Potencia Belicoso (5x54) has a golden brown color to it, with a lightly oiled look to the wrapper.…

Cigarmy Ramblings - Can you - DO you - judge a cigar by its maker?

     There is a certain cigar company that I had, for whatever reason, written off in my head.  I’ll refrain from naming the company, because I didn’t think they were necessarily producing bad cigars…just not fit for my personal preferences and palate.  I’d tried some of their offerings over the years and just decided they weren’t for me.  So, as a whole I had avoided them for a long, long time.  I have to admit to completely overlooking them whenever I visited shops.  The thought of…
