Default Oliva O maduro bold torpedo

Scott Shilala bombed me with this cigar and he said it was one of his favorites so my expectations of this 7 x 54 Torpedo were pretty high. The wrapper is dark, almost leathery with one huge vein running over it. Even the feeling of the texture of the wrapper is leather like, dry and stiff or sturdy.



I tasted some coffee, not too strong though, with a bit of sweetness. After an inch the coffee turns into sweet chocolate. The texture of the flavor is mild creamy. The first half of the cigar is pretty blend and consistent with the flavors mentioned and in the second half I tasted some mild coffee which is replaced by chocolate and white pepper but unfortunately the pepper disappears quickly, only to return for the final couple of puffs combined with a strong dark chocolate flavor. This is the first Oliva that I wouldn’t have recognized as an Oliva stick in a blind taste, as it lacks the specific Oliva sweetness that you find in any of their sticks.



The draw is fine, the ash is white and the cigar produces a lot of smoke. The burn is very straight. This cigar is medium bodied and medium flavored.



Would I buy this cigar again? No, I had better cigars from Oliva

This isn't a Bold. The Bold is a red wrapper that says "Bold" on it and is a different blend.

It's all good. The blue band is the O "Classic" line.

Thanks for jumping in, I thought so but wasn't 100% sure.

I never was that fond of the old Classic O Maduro line. I found the draw to be tight on most of them and the flavor never overwhelmed me. On the other hand Oliva's newer O & G line of Maduro's are pretty darn tasty.
