Oliveros cigars from Havana Cuba Cigar Company is an interesting line with many different blends.  The XL blend started out with either a double corojo or double maduro, both are good smokes.  Then they decided to blend the XL Bold.  CI and Cbid carry these exclusively.

The wrapper on this cigar is full of veins as you can tell from the pictures.  The pre-light smell is of hay and grass. The cigar starts out with some subtle flavors of coffee and grass.  I had multiple burn issues with this cigar as it started to tunnel on me.

The cigar is pretty one dimensional as it does not change flavors much.  The coffee flavor goes away and it leaves a bitter taste behind, not to my liking.  I would not recommend this cigar as there are much better choices out there for the money.
