Come on baby light my fire
The reigning kings of Nicaraguan boutiques have done it again. The Oliva Cigar Company has a highly acclaimed portfolio with cigars that are continually in the running for the ‘Top Cigar of the Year’ honors. With the #1 Cigar of 2014 – Melanio, the #11 Cigar of 2013 – Serie ‘O’, and the 94-Rated, multiple Top 25 honoree – Serie ‘V’, the breadth of Oliva’s talents are always on display, and it’s evident with this new, in-your-face release. Welcome Oliva Inferno.
This Nicaraguan spice bomb is loaded with perfectly aged ligero tobaccos to produce a hearty, full-bodied cigar. The leaf up top is a thick, reddish brown habano wrapper that is cultivated in the fertile growing regions of Nicaragua. It starts out with a heavy blast of espresso and black pepper but soon soothes into a core of sweet cocoa and coffee flavors. All in all, this cigar has great construction, an honest profile, and is offered up a fair price. Give the Inferno a taste and you won’t regret it.
