Default Help ID a Mystery Cigar

I was gifted this cigar by a BOTL here. I did not label it and its driving me crazy. Its a 50rg x 3.5 torpedo. It has an easy draw and I am thinking its in a CC family. Any ideas would be helpful, this think tastes FRIKEN AWESOME.

Unless it's a custom roll -- but nothing regular production comes up in my searches either


Plus the ash looks NC, Larry.

My exposure to CCs is limited, but I would swear this was a CC. If its not, I really want to know now. Need to find more.

That almost looks like the mystery cigar Nester Miranda handed out with a box purchase at the last event. iratebass has a few and should know if it looks similar.

I've never seen a CC fit that bill before.

My guess is that it is 3.75" x 48, and it's an Oliva Serie G Special G. http://www.famous-smoke.com/oliva+se...ars/item+23542

If I'm correct, you can these at a good price and you already love it!

Ive seen La Corona UK custom rolled Havanas in that size... Depends on where you got it, but certainly not impossible to come across... Ive never seen a regular production havana in that vitola though...

If it wasn't so short I'd guess a Curivari EGR Beli, as thats the only NC blend that instantly makes me think of CCs, plus the wrapper in the pic is about the right color, but those are a solid 5"

It looks like a Opus X power ranger. Are you certain that it was 3.5 and not 4.5 inches?
