A short cigar that burns for a good hour means high-quality, straight-ligero, long filler. That is what the Oliva family specializes in, and doesn't that make us knowledgeable smokers a lucky bunch? These are just great cigars. Using their inimitable blend of perky Nicaraguan tobaccos for filler and binder, and offering a choice of Habana, Cameroon, Connecticut or Maduro wrappers, these makers have created a cigar that goes where none have gone before. Operating on the theory that every cigar burns to a point where its unique taste blooms like a tropical flower, Oliva sought to create a cigar that provides the smoker with a stick that finds its sweet spot from the first puff and stays there until the end. Spicy and, unusually, fruity, with hints of cedar, the full-bodied smoke is a marvelous treat. This is a big cigar in a compact delivery system that will satisfy the most attentive aficionado.
