I have smoked every series of Oliva Maduro. They all have places in my humidors.
Very good maduro! I will be stocking more of these in my humidor very soon!
Awesome! 2/22/11 This cigar is complex, french inhale every once in a while to get that cocoa flavor that I love so much in a good cigar and it will be there. Not too strong but definatly not weak by any means. A bit spicy which is good. Pre light aroma-excellent. If I smell a cigar like this one before I light it up and it makes me feel like I'm going to sneeze...I know its gonna be good. Excellent ash along with consistent burn. Don't ever recall it getting hot either. If these were cheaper I would smoke 2 a day at least. Try em out boys'
This is just one of those outstanding cigars that stands at the very top. Wonderful, near full taste with perfect burn and aroma.
I would rate this a solid 92.
Outstanding cigar!Received one in a sampler pack and must get more.(Oliva O Maduro).The aroma and taste are extremely similar to CAO VR(another favorite),especially the heavy leather and spice influence.This slow-burning robusto took me an hour and a half and held a very strong ash that had to be forced off,very complex as well this cigar constantly grabs your attention and has a good surprise for you at every turn.I'm no expert on ratings but to me personally it's a solid 95.Thanks C.I. and Oliva!
Oliva O Maduro is on par with Padron as one of the best maduros out there. Coffee, wood, spice, cocoa and rich earthy notes.
Prelight aroma is excellent, coffee and leathery.
1/3 - Chocolate & Leathery
2/3 - Coffee Espresso
3/3 - Spicy and smokey
i love full body blends like this, all the best ones like edge maduro, 601 green oscuro and man o war ruination, all have this earthy charcoal core to them, man i love that punch to the gut. yet they usually smooth out to an eventful choco coffee and sometimes annise complexity, the series o maduro is no exception, same kick in the butt, and loads of chocolate. though this one mellows a little more offering a milk chocolate and ripe fruit note now and then. but kicks back to black pepper and charcoal for the long finish. magnificent.a 93 rating from me.
This smoke is a powerhouse with a capital P. While it may not be one of my favorite maduros of all time, it certainly is well made, classy to look at and it does produce thick white clouds of nice smelling smoke. It's definitely worth a try.
THE OLIVA SERIE O MADURO PERFECTO IS AN EXCELLENT SMOKE. VERY SPICY INITIALLY, ALMOST TOO MUCH, BUT IT SMOOTHS RIGHT ON OUT. VERY PUNGENT SWEET, HOLDS THE ASH WELL, AND BURNS VERY EVENLY.
Good looking, well made, excellent draw, firmish, non-flaking ash, quite an even burn....but just a wee bit too spicy for my taste.
The (Oliva O Maduro) is flavorful - a spicy maduro, but not overly so. There is a smoothness and some hints of black coffee with a very slight sweet tone. Definitely worth a try if you like maduros.
the (Oliva) o series is one the bgest cigs i've smoked period.second only to the v.
This is the best full flavor cigar I have ever had (Oliva Serie 'O' Maduro). If you like full flavor you must try this smoke.
The Maduro (Oliva 'O' Maduro) and the Classics are the most smoothest cigars I have found so far.
You ought to try it out !!!
They do not come any better than this (Oliva "O" Maduro). Period.
Absolutely my favorite maduro (Oliva ''O'' Maduro), smooth and full of flavor, excellent construction and appearance!
This cigar(Oliva ''O'' Maduro) explodes in flavour and smoothness from the beginning to the satisfying end. One can taste the entire essence and culture of the Nicaraquan nation - its food, climate, art, music, people, even its soil - in one of these cigars. Not many blends can do that. If you want the ultimate in a full-bodied cigar with incredible depth of character and smoothness, this is it.
