Wrapper: Ecuador Sumatra
Size: Robusto 5.0 x 52
I had been looking for this one for a while now. Eagerly I grabbed it right away. It has a beautiful creamy medium brown wrapper with darker shades. There is a spice smell to the cigar and the cold draw confirms that as well. The band is a modified Serie V band, embellished with red and gold, along with a second band that has Melanio Gran Reserva Limitada on it. I used a punch on this and lit it up.
Overall a powerhouse flavor blasted premium cigar. There is so much happening in this stogie it’s hard to nail down all of the flavors. This is a must smoke and needs to be experienced. Oliva has created a fantastic cigar.
