Default Ummm, like an old Oliva V maduro lancero.

I'm pretty sure it was a 2012. My buddy Garrett hooked me up.
Oh, Oliva V Maduro Lancero. Gorgeous little cigar.

I made notes. The notes say:
Righteous burn
Perfect light
Cocoa
Dirt
Rocks
Ovaltine

V lanceros are pretty much worthless new. They're wet and they tunnel and side burn and drive a person nuts.
But like all Oliva stuff, they just get better and better and better until they are perfection.
I'd prop this up as a top 10 maduro, any day.
When I become King of the Universe, I can imagine smoking them with some sort of regularity.

Please don't miss that positive stroke I gave to Oliva.
They never miss. Perfect cigars day in and day out that increase in flavor and value over the years.
You're not gonna find that in a Ghurka Ghost Shadow.

I don’t smoke lanceros much, but I do love me some Oliva cigars. Don’t love the G, but the O’s, V’s, and master blends are awesome.

Definitely prefer the lanceros myself for most NC lines, and Oliva is no exception.

I kept at least a couple boxes of Special G Maduros for years.
When I was into the next box, I immediately ordered two more.
Eventually I had so many Special G's that I just quit.

After 8 months under intensive care, they were ethereal.
I smoked them pigs like they owed me money.

Yes, this has nothing to do with lanceros. You just made me remember and I needed to share.

Stopped in a little shop one afternoon to get a cigar for the ride home. They had V lanceros for 4.99. Only had a 10 and some change so bought 2. Went back a few days later to buy the rest. Somebody beat me to them.

The V lancers has been my preferred stick for many years. Don't think I have more than half a dozen remaining from my last box.
