3 out of 5 smoke rings
The first Oliva I have tried leaves me pleasantly surprised. The Connecticut rapper has a wonderful leafy/woody smell upon lighting, and the initial draws were smooth. A Light peppery flavored smoke, consistent to a little past half way through the cigar, at which point it began to sour. A few puffs later there was no change so it was abandoned.
Although not as consistent throughout the smoke as the Monte Cristo white label. It was comparable in quality of flavor up to the point of souring. A good cigar worth another try.
