    El Cobre by Oliva

    Origin : Nicaragua
    Format : Torpedo
    Size : 6.5 x 52
    Price : ~$4.00

    As lovers of fine cigars, I’m sure that most of you are well aware of the Oliva family of cigars. With cigar lines such as the Serie V, Master Blends, and their newest smash-hit the Nub, Oliva has become a power player in the cigar industry. But, despite the overwhelming popularity of their cigars, Oliva still has some lesser known treats that you may not have heard much about. One such hidden gem is the El Cobre. The El Cobre is a full-bodied maduro cigar that packs a ton of flavour! When smoking an El Cobre, one can expect to taste complex flavours of coffee and nuts, mixed with hints of leather and chocolaty sweetness. A unique trait that sets the El Cobre apart from other cigars is the unique aroma of the resting smoke, which has a scent similar to that of burning sweet grass. If you’re a fan of full-bodied cigars, then the El Cobre by Oliva is a hidden gem that’s sure to please!

    Thumbs Up!

      I’m a big fan of Oliva. Would love to get my hands on some of these to give them a try.

      I had an El Cobre Torpedo for the first time and it was one of the finest cigars I have enjoyed to date! My preference is for full bodies cigars like Ashton VSG’s, Padron Annv. The El Cobre was full of flavor with a wonderful draw and even burn. Truly a memorable smoke…can wait to get more!

      I love Oliva’s offerings, but have yet to try one of these. This might be just the motivation I need.
