Master Blends 3 Churchill by Oliva Cigars


COVID-19 Day 497
 Broadleaf, Churchill, Connecticut Sun Grown, Master Blends 3, Oliva, Oliva Cigar The rustic-looking Master Blends 3 by Oliva Cigars is definitely one of my favorite Oliva Cigars delivering consistent tobacco flavors of deep rich cocoa (chocolate), earth, and leather; all of the flavors that I look for in a dark deep rich smoking experience… through a perfect draw!

Approaching the midpoint… earthy creamy coffee and black pepper tobacco flavors are dominant with a leather finish that keeps me coming back for more puffs!

I need to purchase more of these!

Today, I’m looking forward to trying this Oliva Master Blends 3 Churchill for the first time. I smoked the Torpedo as my introduction to the Master Blends 3 series from Oliva at Sellwood Cigar and since have had several Robustos of the same blend that continue to impress me. so I’m really looking forward to my visit to the Sakamoto Office at the Chamber at 9900.

What a great-tasting cigar. As I mentioned, I discovered these thanks to Jeff Martinez at Sellwood Cigar a couple of months ago. Today, I’m smoking the Churchill (7.0 x 44).

A taste of milk chocolate on the cold draw through my punch-cut and all those flavors that I’ve been gravitating toward; a milder version of cocoa (chocolate), earth, and leather. This Master Blends 3 Churchill by Oliva starts out with a little less than medium body and nothing to speak of on the retrohale, but I know, or at least hope it will develop. I’m only at the first inch… yea and I got all that.

This is a seven-inch smoke, so sit back and relax. This was a two-hour cigar.

The Master Blends 3 by Oliva in all their ring gauges is officially now one of my staples in the TupperDor.

This was the first time I’ve smoked this at the suggestion of Jeff Martinez at Sellwood Cigar.

I was impressed at how smooth the draw was on this Torpedo Stick. I haven’t had much luck with these, being troublesome toward the end. This was fine and dandy.
I think I’ll get some more.

Thank you, Jeff!
