Oliva Serie G Cameroon Robusto
The price of this cigar seems impossibly low. Oliva Cigar Co. has been making cigars for 11 years, and its early struggles in the post-cigar-boom world forced the company to create exceptional values. This Cameroon-cloaked robusto is one of the company's best. The toothy African leaf pairs well with the sublime Nicaraguan tobaccos that make up the filler blend and binder. As part of a redesign of all of the company's brands, the cigar was originally rated as the Oliva Grand Cameroon, but is now known as the Oliva Serie G Cameroon. The price was raised a modest 15 cents but the blend remains the same, Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobaccos mixed with Cameroon wrapper. The box-pressed robusto, which measures 4 1/2 by 50, is elegant and sweet, with nice balance.
