Hey Tim!

How have you missed these before now?

The Oliva Master Blends are great LTD release cigars. They are also fairly reasonable, price wise, for a vintage special release smoke. You did indeed have a MB Original Release. After the OR's they have numbered them II, III and IV, so far. An additionally interesting note for ya, the "stamp" below the arch is actually a laser etched symbol. That was also a first and last event, they only did that for the Original Release cigars. As you so correctly observed these are Great Cigars. You also benefited from another nice aspect of the Oliva MB's and that is, that they age wonderfully. The OR's are now rare and very desirable, the II's were a slight touch below the OR's in initial flavor. The III's are by all accounts excellent, while the IV's really benefit from a bit of nap time before consumption. I try to always keep a few in stock, but alas, that is a hard task indeed, for me.

Great Review, Sir!

Cheers!
