Mark Twain was rarely seen without a cigar in hand. In 1866, Twain traveled from San Francisco to New York City. To avoid the dangerous stage coach route across the United States by land, he made his way to New York City via Nicaragua and the San Juan River. In 1886 Melanio Oliva will start the Oliva Cigar Company in Cuba and via Central America he would find the high quality tobacco he was seeking in Nicaragua. Today the company is still producing reputable cigars and the Oliva family has made a Nicaraguan Habano Puro that tops all the cigar “best of” lists.
Previously known as The Oliva O Classic ,the Serie O Nicaraguan Habano Puro “pure” Robusto is made in the traditional Cuban way that uses a blend of tobaccos from the same country. Growing in diverse regions of Nicaragua, the Habano seed mixture produces a unique blend. The combination develops a well-defined dark tobacco with nutty flavor notes of cedar and spice. Rich but not overpowering, the Nicaraguan Habano Puro is a medium to full bodied smoke.
This premium cigar allows the smoker to satisfy his or her desire for a smoke and relax from the daily stress of life. Enjoy the Serie O with your morning cup of coffee on your front porch watching the grass grow.
“Many of the trees were starred all over with pretty blossoms. There was no lack of vegetation, occasionally the balmy air came to us laden with a delicious fragrance.” Mark Twain
