Omar Ortez Originals received a very nice rating of '90' points, which noted:
"Covered in a rich, dark wrapper, this toasty cigar is full of woody, leathery flavors punctuated by nutty, earthy notes before a sweet cocoa finish. Medium to full bodied"

No More Triple O's
I really do,,,like the "triple O's",,,I mean REALLY,,,I have reviewed these before and they are quite excellent however,,,they are NOT so great,,as to warrant a 30% INCREASE in price,,and I hate that,,,this means they will no longer be in my rotation.NOW,,,I have to go looking for another cigar,,which I already have 6 that I keep in my rotation but the triple o's were really a great afternoon stick,,,,sit in the sunshine with Nicaraguan coffee or rum and relax.

Nicaraguan Puros
To start with,,I've gotton fairly picky about my cigars,,,I only buy Nicaraguan cigars because they have the flavor that I like,,,Omar Ortez Originals are tremendous NOW,,this is not to say I don't like other cigars,,but Cigars from the DR always seem to have a harsh bite to them,,i know they produce great cigars but Nicaraguans are always smoother to me and to be able to get a "PURO" at these prices is an added bonus.I've been buying them for awhile now and they are what I like to find in a cigar.I have a tendency to smoke 3 to 4 sticks a day with of course,,,Nicaraguan coffee and they allow me a "Mediditory" moment,,,they last for a good hour to hour and a half,,the flavor,,"To Me" enhances the coffee,,they burn even with an perfect draw,,,they help clear my head without with the bite of others,,all in all,,,any cigar made in the Ortez factories are just phenominal,,,I'm just sorry that certain ones are always on Backorder,,but that's OK because I know there are others,,,even though they are more expensive,,are just great.I am,,,like I said,,,a Nicaraguan smoker,,,I've even considered moving to the country just so I can buy my cigars and get my coffee,,OH,,and always,,the people at CI are great to business with,,all my orders arrive in their stated delivery time and always arrive in perfect condition,,Thanks Guys

Good smoke
The Omars are a good smoke at very little cost. I'd recommend to any new smoker or anyone looking for a beneficial deal on cigars

Tried these for the first time based on other comments. This is a well constructed cigar....good burn and draw. I found the taste to be a bit harsh, but that is the only negative. I will let the rest sit in the humi for awhile to see if they mellow a bit. Not sure yet if I would buy again, but if you like full bodied smokes, these are worth a try.

Another Great One
I started smoking these from the first time they came out. The blending and taste is consistent. This is a great product. The smoke is full bodied and has a lot of earth and leather tones. It is not dry and leaves a great taste on the finish. Not overpowering while delivering tons of flavor. Will always be a go to for me. I wish I had a bigger humidor so I could buy them on the 60 ct boxes!

This is a go to stick for me and my friends and we can burn through some smokes on a drinking day. Compliments to the folks that make these
Always a good smoke and affordable at the same time.

Customer Testimonials
I wish CI would carry Casa de Ortez, also from Omars Nicaraguan factory. Those are the best $1.50 cigars in the world. I used to smoke the big brands and the latest boutique blends but being a City of Detroit retiree put a serious dent in my smoke budget and Omars cheapie line is the best.
I have smoked thousands of cigars and have always been looking for the everyday cigar that I can afford - like all daily smokers. I have smoked the edge - everyone compares this to the edge because of the packaging in cigar shops and price but this is a better cigar for my taste. 6/54 toro - excellent construction - some burn issues - wrapper never cracks or unravels. This cigar has potent spice throughout - and Im a spice guy - also changes in flavor. I am not one to talk about chocolate and almonds...etc I think it's total bs and silly. I like a spicy and full bodied cigar - this is it - and not too overwhelming on the nicotine - for me anyway. Lots of smoke and a really great cigar - especially for $3 a stick. Hands down - best cigar for the price bar none. Trust me on this one - you will be very happy you did.
CJ of Rocky Point, NY
Man oh man these are so bad no one should order them. That way I can get them because they're always out of stock. On a true note these are the best cigar for the money any site or cigar shop. Rich, smooth, complex always a perfect draw. CI please get the boxes of 60 back in stock.
SC of Lemon Grove, CA
Omar Ortez Maduro Torpedo's are excellent. Medium to full bodied. Well made, lots of rich deep spicy flavors. I like them alot.
JW of Plainfield, IL
Bought the toro at a local B&M in the morning and sparked it up this afternoon. Mine too was a little "rustic" looking with lots of veins, but was firm and had a nice heft in the hand. I prefer a punch cut and had no cap issues. The draw had light resistance, just right for me. Lighted with minimal effort and had a very nice aroma from beginning to end. Normally I find smoke in my face unpleasant but I held this one close to enjoy it all. I too tasted mainly cocoa and nuts; no pepper I could sense. The taste profile for me remained the same throughout the experience, but since the taste was great I didn't mind a bit. My burn was excellent, only one touch-up, even with a light breeze blowing. The ash did not hold on long, but that is not a deal breaker in my book. All in all a very nice medium smoke with a nice price point; I've smoked cigars costing twice as much that I did not enjoy nearly as much. I would/will purchase again.
DM of Webster, MA
This is a great cigar. Very good tasting. Not sure about the wood or leather. I didnt taste these. I definitely tasted a little cocoa and a rich tobacco taste.
CQ of Harrison, NY
Another reviewer reckoned this to be a Rocky Patel Edge knockoff based on the packaging. I bought one of these recently. I picked it up thinking it was my usual Rocky Patel, but realized immediately it was something else. Bought it anyway to try. Very similar to an Edge. Maybe not quite as strong. Well made.
PB of Deland, FL
I have only had one of these cigars, must have gotten a bad one. Very tight draw, that kills it for me off of the bat. Anybody else think these might be RP The Edge knockoffs?
DM of Haverford, PA
As I have a penchant for full bodied maduro figurados, these OOOs are a jewell from Nicaragua!!! Somewhat rustic, somewhat toothy, a wonderful presentation, and the flavors, makes this stogie a winner in my book!!!
DC of Nashville, TN
Omar Ortez Toro 6x54, is a rustic looking cigar, not so good to look at and some soft spots in the core, but once you lit it you'll forget the appereances. Good amounts of smoke from the begining brings a cocoa element in the palate followed by a woodsy base and a lingering leathery-nut. Have some burn issues, but with a nice firm ash. The finale brings up a little bit of peppery sensation follow by sweet notes. Medium in body with a somewhat long finish. 88 rated, took some points on appereance, construction issues, but is flavorfull, nice aroma cigar.
MF of Rincon, Puerto Rico, PR
Omar, you are a master craftsman. The smooth flavor of Omar Ortez Originals and the excellent construction far exceeds the price. CI, thank you for offering us this gift. Omar Ortez Originals will forever have a place in my humidor.
SC of templeton, CA
Wow, what a great Nicaraguan puro (had the toro)! (Omar Ortez Originals) This cigar might not look refined and civilized, but it draws well, and tastes great. Very smooth, medium bodied, with that typical rich Nicaraguan flavour profile. Light grey ash, a little flaky, but that doesn't bother me one bit. Plus, it's a great bargain. Like one other reviewer noted, a box of 60 is a bit much, but I might just pull the trigger one of these days and acquire a separate humidor just for these stogies. With age, they will only get better.
MK of Salinas, CA
For under $3 a stick it is an amazing full/medium bodied cigar. (Omar Ortez Originals) It is very deceiving at first but the last few inches are very powerful with thick spicy smoke and a hint of caramel . I will buy these again for sure. I smoke Rocky Patel's and this one ranks just a tad under the edge. If they came in a smaller quantity I would get them from this site, but 60 is just too many.
AS of Fraser, MI
This cigar is so full of flavor and so smooth, truly wonderful (Omar Ortez Originals). I've smoked plently of brands for years and this one stands right out there. Love the box too!
JB of Lockport, NY
My new favorite cigar (Omar Ortez Originals) and you can't beat the price. An enjoyable smoke for sure!!
