Oliva Série V Lancero
Cabinet of 24 cigars
This Oliva Serie V Lanceros cigar is wrapped in a beautiful dark Habano Sun Grown wrapper. The first creamy puffs quickly fill the palate with woody notes, cedar, spices and bitter cocoa that will persist throughout the tasting. Notes of leather and earth will be combined during the second third, bringing a more animal touch to this cigar. The combustion and the draw take place in perfect harmony, allowing this cigar to exalt the best of its aromas. A perfectly balanced cigar with complex flavors. This cigar scored 94 points and was awarded 6th best cigar in the "Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 cigars" of 2019. It consistently gets an excellent rating year after year (90+ pts). Good to know: The Lancero format was much more common at the time than today. Today it is experiencing a renaissance and is being reissued by many manufacturers. Smoking a Lancero is a unique experience. Its beautiful length (17.7 cm) and its small diameter require a very slow smoking, in order to avoid that the smoke becomes too hot, allowing a perfect exaltation of the aromas.
