“The cigar is fairly smooth and tasty. It had some burn problems, though. It could have been the humid June night air here in Louisiana that affected the burn. I had to keep relighting it. I'd score it an 87.”
“I agree w/ Cigar Aficionado about the brown sugar flavor in Oliva Master Blends III. There is also honey sweetness and aroma as well. This is a very balanced cigar w/ nary a bit of harshness.”
“I just purchased one of these for Father's Day and couldn't wait. Burned a Toro size in a little over 2 HOURS! Absolutely one of the finest smokes out there. I am an Opus X, God of Fire, Padron 64, or Davidoff guy when it comes to splurging on an expensive cigar. This one just moved up to the top of the list! Oliva is bringing it lately.”
“So this is my Favorite Cigar! I'll admit it's a bit expensive but It's a killer smoke! I URGE you to atleast try it in a sampler! The day it's on the Joe's Daily deal I'll buy them all...”
“Delicious,rich,full,complex,MB3-torpedo-IMO-high 90's,thanks CI!bravo Oliva!”
“I have had a few (almost a lot) of these Cigars. I really like these, but they lack the creaminess (word?) of the Master II's, but makes up for it in the long run with a strong finish. I also miss the laser etched symbol up near the head of the cigar. Well worth the price for a boutique cigar.”
“Well it is no wonder that these are on backorder most of the time. This is a winner blend. The cigar is stong and perfectly balanced with no burn or draw issues.
There is not much else anyone can say about a cigar at this level.”
“All i can say is......WOW!!!!!
Everything the hype says it is. Get some! Get some now!!!! So gooooooooooood, lol. I got one in a promotional CI deal for a buck!!!! OMG I'm in heaven right now. Do yourself a favor people.”
“Wow, what a treat! I received this cigar in a promotional 5 pack, I am absolutely amazed. Nice box pressed shape, dark oily wrapper, smooth even draw, and the taste is great! I actually think the taste got better the closer I got to the nub. This is the type of some you lick your lips after taking a puff and the oils give off a brilliant flavor. Needless to say, as long as i can get my hands on them, I will have a supply in the humidor. i give them a 94-95”
“This is right near the top of my favorite smokes list. And for good reason. This smooth smoking, well made stick has great taste, great draw and flawless construction. I prefer it to the Oliva V, another of my favorite smokes. I'll not likely find my box without some of these present.”
“The master blend is alot like the San Latano Oval, overwhelming. Smooth, but dark and decadent, this is a sit down cigar. Perfectly balanced and slow burning, it has that extra something that makes you savor in intervals. I had to buy a box before I finished the first of my five pack. A step above the Oliva V.”
“This is really one of my new favorite cigars. Right up there with my box of Padron 64's. This is a 94-95 smoke, perfect draw, burn, nice subtle flavor changes throughout. This is a true Nicaraguan Puro at it's best that you will smoke to the nub. Best Oliva yet.”
“This is my favorite cigar. Top choice. And the only Oliva that I actually smoke (go figure?). Rich, earthy and leathery texture. It is not for the faint of heart. I beg you to try this full bodied beast one after reading this.”
“This has become my new favorite cigar! I simply can't say enough good things about this stick. I have purchased 3 boxes of the Robusto size and hope that will tide me over for awhile....”
“If you want to have a great cigar, smoke an Oliva Master Blends III. By far, one of my new favorite cigars. Peppery start, which I love, and then just a phenomenal pull and flavor throughout the entire stoge. After trying with my friends, I already had to order my second round. We all enjoyed!”
“There has only been two other cigars that have knocked my socks off. This Master Blend is exceptional and has become a mainstay in my humidors....I plan to add more of the Oliva's as it just blows me away. And the wife likes the scent of it too!”
“Snagged a couple bundles of robustos on one of Joe's Daily deals a couple weeks ago..... let them rest in the humidor for a week before trying one this morning, and WOW!! I've smoked G's, O's, and V's, but never the Master Blends.... these are to Oliva what Tatuaje Cojonus are to Garcia. Fantastic draw, burn, and flavor.... darn near an hour and a half of blissfulness, right to the finger-tip burning end. Don't know that I'd pay the full asking price, but if I ever see these on the Daily Deal again, there'll be a few more boxes worth headed my way.”
“This cigar packs a nice nicotine punch. Wow! First time I've gotten this light headed in a while. From 2006 and tasty as ever. Some burn problems but it is windy outside. A very refined taste. Well done again oliva!”
“....uneven burn , hot, flavor so overdone....”
“Very potent. Not an every day or any time stick. When these go on sale I get a few.”
