Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a correct way to light a cigar?

Absolutely. Your goal is light the end as evenly as possible. When lighting the cigar, it is best when you apply as little of the flame to the end of the cigar as possible. This will prevent the tobacco from getting charred, or carbonized, and imparting an unpleasant taste unto it. To do this, hold the flame about 2 inches away from the cigar, and slowly draw long puffs of air through the cigar. The flame should jump up to the cigar. With each new puff, rotate the cigar about a quarter of a turn. Continue this for 4-5 puffs and then inspect your work. If there is a tiny unlit spot, you can blow on it to accelerate the glowing coal to drift over to it. Then, take one or two steady puffs and then leave the cigar alone for at least 2 minutes, as the first 1/8th to 3/16th of ash builds. You have laid the foundation of a cigar that will burn perfectly

Oliva Serie O Cigars

 Oliva Serie O Cigars

 

Oliva Serie O is made in the original Cuban tradition of growing the same habano seed in multiple regions of the country to produce a unique blend. The Serie O blend was achieved by groing Habano in Esteli, Condega and Jalapa Valley. Hand rolled with a Nicaraguan Puro filler and wrapped in the Sun Grown Habano. Medium to full bodied with hints of spice and rich cedar. Puros should age at humidity levels of 70-78% to preserve the natural oils.
