Cigar Geeks Geek Critique

Olman Premium Cigars Olman (Re-Blended 2019) Toro

Cigar Geeks Rating

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 Ice water

Pre-Light: 16 Points of 20 Possible

This cigar sports a nice looking, golden brown wrapper. It’s smooth, a bit oily and has minimal small veins.  Has a triple cap, but this became completely undone upon cutting (and I cut above the second wrap so this should not have occurred).  Pre-light aroma was of sweet tobacco.  An attractive black and gold cigar band and foot band adorn the cigar.

Light & Burn: 11 Points of 15 Possible

My cigar lit easily and had a snow white ash.  No relights were required and it held a perfect burn line. However, the ash fell off after the first half inch and every inch thereafter.  Very annoying and reminds me of a short filler cigar.  (There is not enough information out there to find out if this is a short filler cigar or not.) It produced a ton of smoke.

Construction: 26 Points of 30 Possible

The cigar looks to be solidly rolled, felt heavy-in-hand and had no soft spots. It draws very easily (and maybe a little too easily) producing copious amounts of smoke. As noted above, the triple cap became completely undone upon cutting (and I cut above the second wrap so this should not have occurred).

Flavor: 7 Points of 35 Possible

The cigar opened with some grassy notes, a bit of harshness in the back of the throat and some acidic flavors on the front of the tongue.  The acidic notes became stronger and more bitter.  At the beginning of the second third, I thought I picked up some graham cracker notes, but these were quickly overpowered by the continued acidic flavors, like those of very young, uncured tobacco.  I had to throw it down by the final third as I just couldn’t find anything other than bitter notes and acid. The smoke was very dry on the tongue. It was really just one note from start to finish, not complex at all, in the mild-medium strength range.

Summary

This specimen was maintained in my humidor at 65% humidity for 3 weeks before smoking it. It was very difficult to discern any other flavor profiles through the singular bitter, acidic note that dominated this cigar from beginning to end.  It left a funky taste in my mouth afterwards that took a few hours to go away.  I appreciate the opportunity to try every new cigar and remain thankful for being included here, but this cigar just wasn’t for me.
