Oliveros Sun Grown Reserve Paco No. 3 Review
Oliveros Sun Grown Reserve Paco No. 3 - 7 X 48. Wrapper - Havano Sun Grown aged over 5 years in Nicaragua, Binder - Nicaragua, Filler - Nicaragua. Medium bodied.
Initial lighting taste - Woodiness.
First third - Spiciness with leather, some citrus and raisin notes.
Second third - Spice, citrus moves up to the forefront followed by leather, sweet raisins and wood notes.
Last third - Spice continues, Tangy citrus, leather, raisin sweetness and wood notes. Long finish of tangy spice and leather.
Construction - Dark-brown wrapper with a slight sheen texture without any major veins. Good cap. Burn was fairly straight with a salt & pepper colored ash that was solid and held on. Draw was perfect with a good amount of smoke.
I was very impressed with this cigar's complexity and balance. Loved the sweet raisin taste and of course the tangy citrus and leather. Smooth, tasty and a wonderfully long finish make this cigar another winner for Oliveros Cigars. MSRP for this vitola is $7.30 which is an excellent value. I would smoke this cigar anytime from midday on - definite recommend for a medium bodied, complex and smooth smoke that won't hurt your wallet.
