Oliva Serie G Robusto Cigar Review

This 4.5×50 box pressed stick features a medium brown mottled wrapper with an even spongy give, silky smooth glove soft feel, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, rounded corners, double cap and rich sweet chocolate aroma. First light reveals an almost unsmokeable tight draw with mild-medium flavors of a sweet smooth tobacco with a nutty dried fruit, and a short finish. Luckily after a few minutes the draw opens up nicely after massaging a knot near the band point, giving medium-full body flavors of a creamy chocolate and leather with a zingy chocolate finish. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors have shifted a bit dropping the leather and adding a nice pepper and spice kick that lasts through the long finish. The mouthfeel has a creamy yet parched effect and constructions is flawless. Ending at 50 minutes where it got very hot, the last bit just amped up the chocolate a bit and added a slight nuttiness, common when it starts to burn hotter. Thank you very much to viewer Tan for providing this for review!

    I’m a big fan of these in the toro parejo as an any time of day smoke (the only size I’ve had). A flavorful, easygoing smoke and a great value, too.

    Great review Bryan, glad to see it opened up for you as I had the same issue.

    I learned the unknotting technique from this review when I first watched it and have passed this on to some friends that had draw issues and were very appreciative to find out how to “unknot” it.

    havent had a problem like this,but it seems most times in other videos the plug is around the band.any connections? the serie g are good cigars.always a great job

  • danzig777

    Its too bad that you had problems there in the beginning because these are one of my favorites.

    has anyone tried this in the Cameroon? I can pick up a tin of 5 at an awesome price but its almost to good to be true and putting me off a little

    • JJO

      Cameroon refers to the wrapper, not the size. The entire line is Cameroon. But to answer your intended question, if you’re talking about the little 4x38s, I haven’t had them, but I think they’re worth a shot if the price is right.

    i loved the maduro version of this. one nice smoke. i definitely gotta have a few of these in my brand new humidor.

  • eric.hanson

    Considering I can get these for unde $3 a stick, I find these to be a really good stick or the money.

  • Nikonguy1958

    Just finished my first one of these. Very nice little smoke with almost end to end flavor.

    Mild “woodsie” flavor on the front end, moving to a coffee taste in the middle and finishing with a velvet coffee/chocolate/pepper end.

    I smoked it for about 55 minutes and finally ran out of cigar.

    Very good, bordering on great smoke!
