Oliva Serie V Churchill Extra

What a beautifully handsome cigar this Oliva V Churchill Extra is; all chocolaty brown wrapper with a velvety touch.

Once lit, deep rich earthy tobacco flavors with black coffee and a subtle bit of cocoa in the background with black pepper flavor coating my tongue in a pleasant way. The retrohale is there on a respectful way… with a little zing that’s not eye watering.

At the second third, the draw is perfect with a razor burn needing no touch ups. The flavors are pretty much the same except I’m changing the black coffee to dark espresso with a leather component trying to come through.

At the final third now tasting like smoking a cup of dark rich black coffee through and through

The Oliva V is an enjoyable cigar you have to at least try once. I’m glad I have several of these in different vitolas. I can’t wait until my next journey with this cigar.
