95-rated an exceedingly complex, Oliva Serie V Double Robusto Tubo (5.0"x 54) is a full-bodied Nicaraguan handmade delivering notes of spice, leather, and oak. Earning #3 Cigar of the Year honors in 2017, this incredibly well-made super-premium utilizes a reddish Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. With a rich blend of aged Nicaraguan ligero long-fillers from Jalapa, this exquisite cigar is tailor-made for the full-bodied enthusiast.
These are always good. The larger, double robusto isn't my favorite.. But, these come in a tubo, which makes them fantastic handouts. I actually bought these for that purpose, and they work great. I try to keep a box of the V petite coronas, and generally the lances as well.. Oliva V- chocolate, cinnamon/baking spice, and toffee notes that burn down into a more dark choc/coffee with a caramely hint.. Always a good choice! Especially if you can wait a year or two before tearing into the box!

This was a truly amazing smoke. It was easy to light, had an awesome smoothness and incredible taste. I definitely recommend to anyone who is an Olivia fan or is looking to an incredible full body smoke.
