    Oliva’s serie V & O are a staple in my humi. I like robustos and torpedos more than any other vitolas.

    I prefer robustos to any other cut, especially when they are box pressed. The Serie G has become quite the staple in my humidor as a daily smoke. Currently, I am in the process of reviewing the entire Oliva line including Cain. More to come.

    I’m a fan of their G, V, and O. The reviewer made a good point about the changing flavor profile offered by the varying diameter. I think I’m much more likely to pick up a perfecto next chance I get.

    I picked up several different perfectos this week. Unfortunately, there is a minor downfall to them. They don’t stack well in the humidor. You pretty much need a dedicated shelf for them. But, they are great smokes.

    A thoughtful review. I too am a fan of Oliva cigars. They just have that special something. As I write this I am staring at the exact same Series O perfecto, which I will be smoking on the way home from work. This is the classiest looking cigar I have seen in a while, though I must admit I am hoping mine is devoid of any cedar plank salmon notes.

    Well said Anthony! Keep in mind, everyone describes and interprets taste differently. The cedar plank salmon reference wasn’t intended to be bad or to deter, it was just strange. Now that I think of it, that perfecto came in the sampler pack. The box for the sampler pack is made of plywood, and smells terrible. I’m thinking that this may have modified the flavor drastically. Let me know how your smoke goes.

    The Serie O perfecto was great, as were the V, G maduro, Connecticut Reserve, and Cain Maduro I’ve smoked since then. Sorry for my late reply; I did not click on “notify me of followup.” I think I purchased the same sampler box that you mention above. I’m contemplating a box purchase of the Serie O, though I wish they made them in the “Special G” size. I seldom have time to enjoy a “full-sized” cigar.

    Here I am, stuck at home for the week with the flu. 4AM stir crazy, I stare at my humidor; which I have not opened or touched in too long. I stare at all my cigars. I sniff them to see if I can pick up smell. Alas My sinuses have returned I decide to smoke one of them. Oliva O… Yep I did get the salmon plank smell at the cold draw. The cigar was a nice relaxer for my mind.. I did enjoy the almost vanilla bean coffee notes in the cigar.
