Latitude Zero Excursion

A Must-See Blockbuster

In the background of the last few years Oliva Tobacco Company, the manufacturers of the top-shelf stogie at hand today, have been the unsung hero of cigars. Like any great film, Oliva Tobacco Company lets certain superstar brands and cigars soak in the limelight of their work, all while being the hardworking stunt double behind every “action movie hero.” Need some proof? They supply the tobaccos for ultra-premiums like Davidoff, Ashton VSG, and many more. They created the Ecuador Habano wrapper. And, with Latitude Zero Excursion cigars, they’ve produced yet another box-office hit — a bombastic stogie that's a must try for any cigar enthusiast.

If I could type a flashing, neon-lighted billboard, it’d be pointing to those two words: Must. Try. 

Oh man, just wait 'til you get your hands on this one. As I ripped the packaging on our samples apart like Christmas mornings of old, I was instantly greeted with a rich aroma of brownies. Seriously, this cigar smells good enough to eat. Aging almost twice as long as other Connecticut Broadleafs, the wrapper provides you with a superior taste and color. As the flavors roll over my palate I'm thinking chocolate, I'm thinking earth, leather, and bitter espresso. But mostly, I'm thinking I need to secure myself a stash of these post-haste. I'll call it right now, this is one of the best, if not the #1, release of the year. Cigars of this quality could easily demand three times the price. But Latitude Zero Excursion stays humble, and that sweet sense of saving serious cash is the best gift of all.

Ashton
I received a 5 pack of Ashton's with my last order they were terrible could not keep them lit and I know Ashton is known for a better quality cigar than this

Tasty Sticks
Surprised by all the complexity and transitions. I'd say these are an 87 rated and the robusto is the best blend.

A good drawing cigar, but
A good drawing cigar, but not much in the flavor department.

Worth the money
Definitely one of the better Lat Zero sticks. Draw is excellent and burn was razor sharp. Flavors are all there. I'll be buying these again.

Will definitely smoke again
Well-constructed cigar with a decent burn & excellent smoke output. Deep, rich tobacco taste with a woodsiness to it. Definitely getting some leather and earth, too. It opens up very nicely in the 2nd 3rd. Currently working on my 2nd out of a recently delivered 5-pack. I'll let the others age in my humidor for a while and revisit down the road. I'm not necessarily "blown away" here, but I do look forward to smoking the Excursion again! Cheers!

Broadleaf at its best
I know everyone tends to have glowing reviews but please read on. I NEVER reviewed a cigar before but I have to say this is the best CT broadleaf maduro I have ever tried. This cigar was graham cracker goodness. I had to slow myself down because I couldn't stop drawing on this treat. Smooth and not a pepper stick its wrapper imparts a taste I couldn't get enough of. Its reminiscent of La Riqueza but complex flavor and a little bolder. This stick is really worth a try. It's real treat and I know you won't be disappointed. This was the first cigar that I could actually detect a transition in the taste during the thirds. Since it only rested in my humidor for 3 weeks the last half inch started to get a little bitter espresso but I think in a month or two this stick will be perfect. A nice complex great tasting cigar.

Definitely a keeper
The LZ Excursion was an exceptional cigar from start to finish. Well made; even burn; solid ash and packed with cocoa, raisin and black pepper nuances. I will buy more!

Good cigar, at a great price.
I'm no aficionado, but my tastes have definitely developed over the past few years. Maduros are one of my favorites, and the Excursions do not disappoint. They have great flavor and mine have burned evenly down to the end. The draw was tight, but that can always be remedied. I'll buy these again soon!

Great Mild Smoke
Enjoyed these as a break from my regular selection. The smoke was mild and smooth with no harsh aftertaste. I liked the selection and will consider more in the future.

Glad I tried !
This is a very good smoke ! The "must try " endorsement and free shipping got me ! This is the real deal from the Oliva estate.Great tobaccos competently rolled into a first class cigar.I'm not one for all the nuances and descriptive adjectives but a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse.Truly a medium to full delight.

Enjoyed it. Could be an everyday stick.

Not bad
I didn't think they were anything amazing, but they are not bad. Decent smoke, a little heavier than I normally like but again, not bad.

Enjoyed the tast and even burn

Simply delicious
I'm already a fan of the robusto and the torpedo does not disappoint. It's a relaxing fuller bodied stick. Great burn, finish and hearty flavors of dark cholotate, espresso and raisins. Simply delicious.

Best stick at CigarFest 2016
This cigar was definitely the star of CigarFest 2016 in my opinion. Smoked several of these there. Even traded some other sticks to get more. I'm glad to see that they are finally becoming available. The description is spot on. It's definitely a must try. The robusto size is superb. Can't wait to try the torpedo. Make sure you are in a comfy chair with your favorite libation as this cigar will plant you in your seat. These cigars are outstanding!

Summer is coming to a close. Maybe it’s a bit early to be thinking about, but it’s true. It’s a bummer, too, but it does mean one thing is right around the corner: the return of Sunday night games, and Fantasy Football. As I write this we’re one week away from the CI Office Draft, and if you look closely at anyone’s browser, you’ll probably see an ESPN tab hidden in there somewhere. You can get a ton of draft advice, but, inevitably, the topic always comes back to sleepers — what player is no one paying attention to, that they should be.

There’s no fantasy cigar leagues that I know of (although if there were, I’d go ????? in the first round), but with the truckloads of awesome brands that exist right now, there are certainly some sleepers in the cigar world. Handmades that get unnoticed, while the same old stuff goes off the shelves. Which is a roundabout way of getting to our review cigar today: Latitude Zero Excursion.

I can be a bit wordy, so if you’re looking for a short, sweet review, I’ll sum it up for you as best I can. Latitude Zero has been an awesome brand since Day 1 that they were introduced, and in my humble opinion, Excursion is their best cigar yet. By a landslide. It’s a rich, powerful experience that has me seriously considering picking up two or three pouches on my next order. Not only is this easily one of the best cigars I’ve smoked this year, it’s one of the best Maduros I’ve smoked in quite some time. Do yourself a favor, and stock up now, because I can’t even imagine how these will taste with some age on them.

If your attention span is short, click that Add to Cart button, and we’re done here. If you want some more information, let’s keep going.

So who makes Latitude Zero Excursion anyway? Oliva Tobacco Company. No, no, no, not that Oliva of V and Melanio fame. Oliva Tobacco Company is a provider of tobaccos for huge, ultra-premium brands like Davidoff, Ashton, and Montecristo. They’ve been one of the largest tobacco growers for over eight decades now, and were the creators of Ecuadorian Habano wrappers. In short, they know how to make a quality leaf, and they know it well. You may not know the name, but familiarize yourself with it now. If Ashton and Drew Estate are the A-list celebrities of each cigar blockbuster, Oliva Tobacco Company is the producer pulling all the strings and putting the wins together behind the scenes.

The blend is simple, on paper. We’ve got an oily, dark Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper (more on that in a second) over top a bed of handpicked Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. This isn’t just any Broadleaf wrapper, though. It’s been specially fermented and left to age twice as long as industry standard. That extra aging time provides a glistening, brown chocolate bar colored wrapper that has some serious flavor to it. It also takes a bit of the edge off: while some Nicaraguan, Connecticut Broadleaf wrapped cigars boast tons of strength and spice, this one goes for a more balanced, medium to full-bodied approach.

That chocolate bar appearance comes over to the taste. There’s certainly some strength here, but the profile is, as a whole, smooth as silk. Rich and chocolatey, with a nice bitter espresso finish and a bit of natural tobacco flavor in the background. It’s not quite “creamy”, but it’s insanely easy to take this one down to the nub. You could singe your fingertips on this one, and it won’t get harsh. And I’m speaking from experience there.

Remember when I said earlier that I tend to be really wordy? I wasn’t lying. Let’s get this wrapped up. If you enjoy Perdomo Champagne Noir, La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor, CAO Flathead, or, dare I say it, Liga Privada No. 9, this one should be an absolute no-brainer. As a matter of fact, if you like maduros at all, you better try this ASAP. I don’t get paid by the word, so I’m going to cut this review to a close. There’s about two inches left of the Latitude Zero Excursion Toro I’m enjoying now, and I’d like to finish it with no distractions.
