Olivas - Master Bends 3 - Churchill

Strength:  medium
Origins:  Nicaragua
Wrapper:  broad leaf sun grown
Shape:  straight
Length:  7"
Ring size:  50
Approx. cost:  $8.50
Bdawg says:  A semi firm cigar.  The wrapper is the color of light milk chocolate, slightly veiny, and speckled with dark spots.  The draw is easy, producing a nice amount of smoke and a powdery white ash.  The flavor, complex, smooth, earthy, with a dry cocoa finish.  The burn was slow and even.

I enjoyed this cigar outside at Arooga's bar in downtown Harrisburg, PA.  Accompanied with a Stone Arrogant Bastard (American strong ale).

But finishes with a nice crisp hoppy bite!
