Oliva Serie V Liga Especial Double Robusto


The Oliva Cigar Co. has a huge hit on its hands with the Serie V. The company’s premier cigar line burst onto the scene last year when the Serie V Torpedo scored 93 points and took the No. 4 spot on our Top 25 list. The Double Robusto is also an exceptional smoke: a Nicaraguan puro with lots of earth and coffee bean flavors, and a long, long finish. The Olivas are adept at delivering great flavor along with great balance in their smokes, and this oily cigar is no exception. This is the fourth year in a row the Olivas have placed on our Top 25 list, which is no small feat.
