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.

Great value, great cigars.
Olivia 2nds don’t smoke (or look) like 2nds. Great full flavor and they burn perfect start to finish. I bought 5 x 54 in V and V Maduro. Very pleased with both. I will buy them again.

Premium cigar at a bargain price.
I tried an Oliva v 2nds for the first time having smoked many of the originals. Verdict is...... Outstanding!! Smoked perfect. Tasted great. Perfect draw with even burn. A small part of the wrapper seam looked a little loose. Didn't alter the performance at all. If I didn't search for a problem I wouldn't have noticed. Smoked it to the nub and it was smooth all the way. A genuine bargain.

Liga V - Great Stick
I love the Oliva Serie V DB and I don't find a difference between them and the Liga V DB. Both have the same flavor, strength and burn quality. I just wish CI could keep them in stock more often because I can tell I'm not the only one who feels that way!

Great Buy!
I picked these up on sale, and I'm really glad I did. Construction is flawless (not sure why they're 2nds), draw is perfect, razor sharp burn, excellent flavor...I can't say that about many cigars, but these delivered everything they promised. Would definitely buy again.

too strong for my tastes
these are incredibly strong cigars. the first quarter inch is rough but after that they mellow out. nice smooth taste for such a strong cigar. for the price I paid as 2nds, these are an AMAZING deal. if you like very strong cigars, give these a try.

Oliva 2nds Liga V
For the Oliva 2nd, I’ve heard good things about Oliva and Oliva 2nds. As a matter of fact, I certainly enjoy their Nub brand. This one surprised me in it’s flavor. I was indifferent to the first thirds flavor but it wasn’t offensive. The 2nd third of the cigar was very pleasant. When it got right to the end, it was bitter.

Powerhouse 2nd
Wow, what a strong cigar. A bit green, and will require a cedar nap, but not nearly as green as earlier purchases which I returned. Minus one star for the green bits, but extremely well made, obviously an Oliva.
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.

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.
