Review: Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill

This is my review of the Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill.

Nose:

There's not a lot of stogies that I get the sweet smell of tobacco from, but this was one of them.  There's also a nice complex woody combination with about the same strength.

Construction:

This is an Alec Bradley Prensado Churchill (7x48).  There is a rich, dark, oily sheen across the entire wrapper.   Flat veins…

Review: Oliva Serie V Maduro Especial 2010

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



Nose:

Nose:

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: Oliva V Melanio

This is my review of the Oliva V Melanio which comes in the Robusto vitola.

Nose:

I was excited to try out this new release from Oliva.  After considerable examination all I picked up is a peaty earth and some dried fruit. 

Construction:

The Melanio has a rich brown color to it, with a wrapper that does not reveal any flaws.  I've always found the Oliva V band to be well designed and eye catching,…

Construction:

Flawless construction.  I would expect nothing less from…
