"Go ahead and pull the trigger"
If you love the smooth, rich and sweet flavor profile of maduro tobacco, then waste no time and order these. Olivia Series O is full of rich tobacco flavor and very smooth to boot. Simply put, you just can t go wrong here. Enjoy.

"Packed with savory flavor"
Picked this stick on a whim and all I can say is wow. Full presence with layers of chocolate and spices that meld together in a luxurious after dinner smoke sure to please a full bodied maduro lover. A define must in my stash!

"Good alternative very mild kick"
After trying a few Acids from their sample pack I received a premium sampler in the mail. After a few days in my humidor I decided to smoke this one . Pleasant taste and smell and not bitter after taste which is what I like. It burns unevenly but that may be not the norm. The downside to this cigar is that the draw isn't all that good. I hate giving negative reviews but I need to be honest. I would recommend this cigar but like I said the draw isn't that good. It takes a long time

"Started out Great, but..."
What's going on here?
Not usual for me to give a negative review, as I normally choose wisely.
I had really enjoyed the first few of these robusto maduro cigars. Good smell and an acceptable ash. For the money, they were a fantastic buy, with good flavor and a decent draw. Lately, the draw takes too much effort which in turn brings in too much heat, and that has changed the flavor of this once nice burning cigar. I have tried a poker, but the roll is very tight in some areas, which has led to small cracks when trying to push in the poker. My humidor is always on target with humidity and temp, so I have even tried to let them rest. But, to no avail on these boxes. I hope Oliva is attentive to this issue, I have had a lot of respect for their brand of cigars in the past. I just can't justify the effort needed to smoke these and sort through the better ones to do so. This will not deter me from the Oliva NUB's. Those seem to have a good control on them for now. Cigar smoking should be pleasure... not a chore!
Thanks to Rene` @ FSS for listening!

I was hesitant to buy the Serie O because "Cigar Insider" has never rated the line very great (85-88), with the maduro at the bottom of the scale. But they looked so good in the photo and the few other reviewers' comments enticed me to try them. I let them rest in my humidor for 2 weeks and just smoked the first. What a treat! Smooth, easy draw producing a firm white ash with lots of pleasant smelling smoke. The smoke itself was full of wood and leather tastes with a long creamy finish. I enjoyed this cigar as much as any CI 90+ rated brand! I'll buy more!

"My all time Favorite Cigar !"
How can you go wrong with a Nicaraguan Puro that is aged for 5 years !
This is a full flavor stick with delicious notes of cocoa and espresso. And
is so smooth it s unbelievable ! So creamy and oily that lingers. Smoked it
to the one inch nub ! The Robusto AND the Churchill !!
