CIGAR REVIEW

Oliva Serie V Melanio figurado Grand Reserva Limitada

This was a terrific cigar! It had a very good flavor from the beginning to the end of the smoke. It burned even through out. The Oliva Melanio was very smooth with coffee and caramel creamy flavors. I would highly recommend this cigar to anyone. Great smoke for the enthusiast. Not to harsh for a novice smoker.

Personalized facts from my smoke.

As you can see from the picture above it’s tightly wrapped and didn’t need to be ashed very often.  Some details about this smoke are: drank a Dr. Pepper with it, took 1 hour and 10 minutes to smoke. Smoked by myself. It had a very nice aroma to it. Was smoked in a open well vented area. Keep in a humidor at 70% humidity. Was cut with a cutter that sniped off the end with a nice clean cut. Lit with a butane lighter. Never had to be re lighted.
