Welcome to another Vendor sponsored Geek Critique.  Up for review this time is the Olman Premium Cigars Olman (Re-Blended 2019) Toro.  This critique has been generously sponsored by John Scoble of Tabacos de Costa Rica.  Special thanks goes out to John for providing the sticks and MacMac (Joe) for coordinating this!

This is a Costa Rican tobacco company with over 21 years experience in the production of premium, handmade cigars, consisting of our own brands and many private labels, which are created with custom blends selected by their clients.  This prticular blend is their own created for their brand.  There is not a lot of additional information about them.

This cigar was enjoyed with London Fog

Pre-Light: 19 Points of 20 Possible

There was a satin rosey sheen to the wrapper with a few veins noticed. The canon was firm and even throughout and there were no soft spots. The cap cut easily without fraying or damaging the wrapper. The nice barnyard aroma with some honey notes were pleasant and the cold draw seemed just right. I liked that the bands came off easily. The bunching looked even too.

Light & Burn: 14 Points of 15 Possible

Although firm and evenly rolled, the first ash fell off on its own after one inch of smoking and the rest of the ashes held on a little longer. There was plenty of good smoke throughout the session. The cigar burned a little crooked for the first two thirds and required one touch up. The last third burned evenly.

Construction: 28 Points of 30 Possible

Formidable construction led to an enjoyable smoke. The one touch up that was needed did not deter from the experience. The draw was very good throughout. The wrapper did not unravel nor did the cap falter. As mentioned above, the stick was a good looking one that was filled, rolled with care, and sported a a nice looking wrapper.

Flavor: 33 Points of 35 Possible

The first third started off medium bodied with some mild citrus flavor and wood notes. There was a tasty aftertaste that had a nice warm tang to it. The second third strength went up just a tad and introduced a little lingering spice that was enjoyed. The cigar remained smooth without fault in the first two thirds. The last third remained smooth and reached about a medium plus strength. The flavors remained the same but slightly deeper.

Summary

This cigar was a pleasure to smoke and one of the better ones I’ve had in a while. The taste and strength were very well balanced. This stick was nub worthy and I will be interested to seek them out for future smoking pleasure. A big thanks goes out to Joe and Olman Premium Cigars for making this review and experience possible.
