Having had to go into the shop to open up, with no food in my system, I see why the Oliva Serie O is a popular cigar for smokers. Considering I spent most of my smoking time in the evenings, when I want a heavy or full-bodied Cigar, I usually find the Serie O to be too weak in body. But since I started to work at the cigar shop in Decatur I’ve discovered that the Oliva O series is a good morning cigar.
I’ve got a lot more of the flavor out of it because it is my first cigar with a fresh pallet. Definitely has notes of earth and light spice, almost like cocoa dust. Good draw, mild to medium flavor and strength.
It would probably pair well with a medium bodied coffee, or perhaps my mushroom coffee. It might even do well with a spot of Earl Grey tea.
Come down and see us at Got Cigars? in Decatur, at 232 E. Ponce De Leon, just off Decatur MARTA!
