Completing the trifecta
If you haven’t tried any of the Oliveros Gran Retorno blends yet, I recommend you do so posthaste. What’s that? I have to write more about these? Alright, alright, I’ll stop slacking and get to the good stuff. These premium handmades are a new line from Rafael Nodal, the man behind the 93-rated Aging Room Quattro F55. They’re available in three different wrappers, each one with a slightly tweaked blend to create a unique profile.
The Oliveros Gran Retorno Maduro is a Nicaraguan puro, with tons of character and finesse. We’ve got notes of coffee, cocoa, earth, leather, and a nice spice that stays present throughout the entire cigar. Each one of these Gran Retornos is tasty, so asking me to pick a favorite is like trying to pick a favorite child. Meaning, I have one, it just depends on the day. And on the days I’m craving a rich, bold cigar, Oliveros Gran Retorno Maduro becomes #1 in my books.
