How is it? I've been curious because it seems like a cut above Oliva's other house blends (i.e. actual Oliva branding, the price).
Man, I really enjoyed it. Comparing it to the MB3 I had on Saturday, it's much less spicy, and a bit more complex. Too early to tell, but it's up there for me with the Melanio Maduro.

Here are my notes:
1/3 - Pepper at the start, smoothes out to dark roast coffee with a nutty finish.

2/3 - More of the same, pepper is almost completely gone.

3/3 - Strength has gone up a couple of notches. A mineral earth is now coming in. Nuttiness is more pronounced, with a barnyard funk coming in.

Side note: you get your money's worth with this one, the robusto lasted me 95 minutes.

Got a box of these free when I picked up a big order last year (Bells of Cincinnati). Meh. I like Camacho offerings generally.....this release is kind of hit or miss for me. The all-maduro construction plus beer barrel aging highlights malty/bitter chocolate tones. Sometimes this strikes just right, but most times it's a bit bitter in profile for me.

Finished picking up Laura’s aftermath, cut the yard, smoked a No Name Nicaragua Habano On zero turn, 40$ for 20 cigars, very good smoke, put up mower in barn, smoked another one on porch, came in and showered, Damn I’m hungry for ice cream.!

Ice cream sounds great right now.

I'm smoking an Undercrown Maduro cigarillo as I wait for my day to be over.
