Oliva 2nds

Small blemishes, enormous savings.

Oliva is home to some of the industry's finest, highest-rated handmades, including 'Top 25' honorees. Every Oliva is top-notch from A to Z, and utilizing aged tobaccos, hand-selected wrappers, and relentless quality control standards that set this factory apart from the rest. Long story short: these are the blends you know, love, and read about, but they're not quite up to Oliva’s strict standards due to a slight variance in color, a vein here or there, or a sun-spot. That's the end of the bad news. The good news? You get to scoop up these Oliva 2nds for mere pennies on the dollar. And let's make it clear — these 2nds would be "1sts" in almost any other factory on the market. Find your favorite blend, scoop up as many as your humidor can hold, and enjoy. These cigars at these prices are like finding a Rolex at the thrift shop. 

Oliva 2nds are available in seven different blends, each Liga representing the 2nds of one of Oliva's famous blends. We can't tell you what's what, but check out the characteristics (hit that small "i" in the grid below), and with a little detective work you can figure these out for yourself nice and quick.

Almost as good as the real deal
Just arrived today so I had to sample one. After visually inspecting all 15 some head pretty deep defects but I'm halfway through the first cigar and I am pleasantly surprised. Good burn decent draw and nearly the same flavor as the Oliva G. I will definitely be buying more of these to fill the humidor.

worth the money
I keep going back to these 2nd's. Not always consistent but for seconds I'd say well worth the money.

After reading other reviews I'm assuming I lucked out. I love these bargain cigars. The draw is great. The burn has been good. The taste.... its oliva.... they're amazing. Pick some up if they're still in stock.

Should be "3rds".
Blend varies widely from one stick to the other. The "2nds" part seems to be for loosely rolled, mushy sticks that have frequent burnouts. I doubt I'll buy these again.

Delicious!
Love these. Delicious; lots of flavor. But nothing overpowering. This is now a favorite.

Excellent.

great deal
So far, these "2nds" are just as tasty as the regular Oliva's that I have tried, and cost just a fraction of the price. Bargain!

looks OK for a second, needs a little moisture then smokes like a first, Good Value for the Money.
Had a nick in the wrapper close to the head, was a little dry, unwrapped all and humidified for a week and it smoked just fine. Nice Medium smoke yielding to a light peppery finish... Will definitely buy again.

2nds my ash!
If you like Oliva cigars as I am, you must try these. I have smoked 4 of the 15 and I am very pleased with the cigars. Not a problem with any of them yet. Not sure why they are 2nds but I don't care. Burn has been great, fantastic draw and great taste.

Nice cigar smooth
They need to bed in a humidor about a month longer to dry them out a bit.But very nice smooth cigar

A few anomalies, but overall inoffensive.
They were advertised as 8" x 52". They were, in fact, closer to 8" x 50". Some of the packets were labeled 7" x 52" but the cigars were definitely 8" long. I found the cigars varied considerably in taste and strength. Overall, they were reasonable value but I would not purchase them again.

Great 90+ Rated Cigar at a Bargan Price
This is an extraordinary cigar. This has been marketed as 90+ seconds, and I could not wait for CI to get them back in stock. Enjoyable from start to nub. I prefer the Churchill and like this longer smoke. You cannot beat these for the price.
Customer Testimonials
First impressions out of the box: tight but visible seams, and a couple large visible veins in the leaves. The draw was close to perfect. For the most part it burned pretty evenly. The construction was fair and the ash held in for a while. The cigar was more of a mild to medium body. Not quite into the full body range. At first light the flavors were very subtle. Mostly pepper and slight leather. The finish did have some very VERY light cream flavors. Unfortunately, there were no coffee or chocolate flavors. Getting through the first half it quickly got spicier. You could definitely feel it on the back of the throat. The cigar only got harsher as it burned so I didn't get much past the first half. I was pretty disappointed. Not sure this would qualify for a 90+ rated cigar. Definitely a "2nd"... you get what you pay for. If you enjoy milder cigars with pepper galore at a cheap price this is the cigar for you. If you're looking for magical flavors... Don't waste your time here.

Always Save Room for 2nds!

There’s two things I love in this world: real nice cigars, and scoring them on the cheap. So naturally, a product line like Oliva 2nds immediately gets my heart pumping. For those that aren’t familiar – Oliva 2nds are the cigars from the same award-winning cigars from the Oliva factory that fail to meet their aesthetic perfection standard. Typically this is just from a slight cosmetic mark, occasionally, you’ll find some veins in the wrapper. But beyond that the cigars match up perfectly with Oliva’s high-quality offerings, and taste just as good as the “real thing.”

For today’s review, I’ve scored myself 5 of each of the different “ligas,” and instead of my normal rambling I’m going to provide some quick tasting notes and ratings for every one of the Oliva 2nds sitting on our docks. Let’s get started!

Liga C: A pleasant, nutty flavor with notes of coffee, wood, and nuts. Good finish and aftertaste, burns well and draws easily. 4 out of 5 stars

Liga OM: Really full-bodied, with a rather nice looking wrapper. If I had to guess, I’d call it a Connecticut Broadleaf. Tons of black pepper on the first few draws, which mellow out into a smooth, subtle finish. 4.25 out of 5 stars

Liga G: A medium-bodied flavor bomb, with a pretty toothy and dark wrapper leaf. Long finish, ripe with notes of coffee, and a toasty tobacco core. 4 out of 5 stars

Liga F: The mellowest of the batch, with a silky smooth Connecticut wrapper on top. Flavor profile is tame, with a pleasant sweetness and nuttiness throughout. For a first cigar of the day: 4.25 out of 5. If you’ve already had a cigar or two, the subtle flavors on this one may miss the mark: 3.5 out of 5

Liga M: My absolute favorite of the lot. Really full-bodied, with an oily and smooth wrapper leaf. A distinguished flavor of earth, cream, and loads of sugary chocolate. A perfect choice if you love Nicaraguan cigars, and don’t want to empty your wallet. 5 out of 5 stars

Liga O: A contender for the throne when it comes to my favorite 2nd. Nice color to the wrapper, this cigar had the least “flaws” out of the samples I procured. Only noticeable blemish was a few small sun spots. A salty, spicy flavor is balanced by a rich sweetness halfway through the cigar. 4.5 out of 5 stars

Liga W: Compared to Liga F, the other Connecticut offering from the Oliva 2nds, W is a bit heartier, weighing in right under a medium-body. Layers of flavor leave behind notes of wood, cream, and coffee on your palate. 4 out of 5 stars

In short, I can easily recommend absolutely any of these cigars to add to your humidor. Compare them to top-shelf blends that cost 10x more, and you’ll come away a little disappointed. But when you stack these up next to any $5-7 cigars on the market, the Oliva 2nds are just as tasty, and half the price. The only other knock on the score? Since these are seconds, quantities are limited and there’s a chance we’ll be completely out of a liga for months, if the factory doesn’t have anything to offer up. But when they’re in stock, Oliva 2nds might just be the best bargain cigar we have to offer.
