Oliva cigars deliver all the ligero you could ask for!
Also known as 'Ligero Especial', the Serie V from Oliva cigars is an enchanting Nicaraguan puro chock full of flavorful goodness. On the outside, a beautiful Habano Sun Grown wrapper glistens with oils. Thick and smooth as silk, this impressive leaf conceals a powerful, yet balanced and smooth blend of aged Nicaraguan ligero from the Jalapa Valley of Nicaragua. The Oliva Serie 'V" cigar is full-bodied and full-flavored, offering layers of coffee, spice, and tobacco flavors, with a touch of dark, unsweetened chocolate on the finish.
Great news, the Serie V from Oliva received an amazing 94-point rating, which noted: "This attractive, oily torpedo is full of dynamic nut, wood, and sweet cedar flavors that frame a substantial leather core. The finish is long and rich. Tasty and complex."
But that's not all. Serie V was also named one of Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of the year....for the second consecutive year!
Outstanding. This is the absolute best cigar I have ever tasted. I was challenged by a friend to compare it to the Ashton VSG, and in my opinion, there is no comparison. Great flavor, great draw, great construction. Simply excellent.

Oliva's Serie V is one of the smoothest full bodied cigars I've smoked. Rich in flavor and moderately complex. It is a great after dinner cigar. You won't go wrong picking up one or a box.

Juggernaut of flavor and power.

These are tricky to get to burn evenly but it is possible with patience. This is a powerful smoke, it almost has a narcotic effect. This power brick must be enjoyed on a full stomach and preferably at the end of the day. It will put you to sleep; did I mention this is a powerful stick?
The first 1/3 sweet hay and chocolate milk. There is a copious amount of smoke by the 2/3 and the taste transitions into graham cracker and creamy coffee. But the last third, the graham cracker gets stronger and the coffee taste turns to a dark roast. You will taste graham cracker for a few hours after smoking. You will probably pass out too :)
