Oliva Vindicator Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 Famous Smoke exclusive cigar features a dark brown, oily smooth firm wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and a rich peppery wood and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with medium bodied flavors of a smooth and oily tobacco with a bit of bite to it going back in to the back of my throat. The finish is long and smooth with a pepper zing washing over the tongue. The first third continues the same profile building in strength slightly keeping the smooth rich flavors. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point flavors bump up to a medium-full body and produce a deeper substantial earthiness dropping the spice. 40 minutes in the ash drops off in a solid chunk and flavors shift to a creamy nuttiness joining the core of earth and pepper with a long smooth finish. Ending at 1:05 the last third held the same flavor profile just bringing up the strength a good bit making me jittery.
