This review comes courtesy of Charlie aka Labman.

The Oliva Serie G Maduro was one of the first maduro cigars I ever had the pleasure of smoking, and it has remained one of my favourites ever since. The Serie G sports a very dark, oily wrapper that for a first timer can be a little intimidating. But, once lit, all fears melt away as the Serie G delivers rich flavours of dark chocolate, toasted nuts, and hints of coffee. A light spice and sweet tanginess can be detected when retro-haling the Serie G‘s creamy smoke through the sinuses. Even though I would classify the Oliva Serie G Maduro as medium-full in body, it’s a cigar that even the most inexperienced smoker can enjoy. So go out, give it a try, and be sure to let us know what you think!

  1. This is a very, very nice cigar. Very dark, silky oily wrapper. The African Cameroon wraper do the difference.
    My overall Rating: 4.5 points

    This is interesting… I got a 5 pack of these 2 weeks ago and just lit one yesterday; I loved the sight and to me the full taste of it, I rushed it a little bit and got a good kick of nicc for it; definitely liked it!

  3. Yeah. That’s a good cigar. I like the natural better though. But that’s me.

  4. I always keep a few in the humi. A nice smoke at a reasonable price!

  5. Thing looks AWESOME! Wish the review had been a bit more in depth (although I was pretty much sold on the “dark chocolate”)!

    Hmmm.. I *might* have one of those somewhere…

  6. this is a delicious smoke! and the boxpress is so sharp you coul actually build a house from them, and it wouldn’t fall over ..

  7. Great smoke but not for the uk price of £9 have to stick to cubans for that price which is a shame.

  8. A buddy and I enjoyed a couple of these cigars yesterday. The draw on both was very tight, and even with a ‘deeper’ cut in the cap (torpedo vitola) it proved difficult to get a good mouthful of smoke. Despite our jaws being sore, we continued smoking and, though the flavor had potential, the cigars proved unimpressive. I’ve got a few more I’ll give a try, but at this point I’m a little dissapointed in the Serie G.

    Medium body with notes of cedar and coffee. This cigar comes in an assortment of sizes and shapes. The unique shape of this cigar caught my attention. This was a pretty good cigar and one I could smoke until my fingers burn. It stayed nice and smooth for a while. The Oliva Cigar Brand is rated very high amongst cigar aficionados and has been included as one of the best cigars of the year in 2006.
