Flor de Oliva Gold (toro)

So far I like this one, especially considering the price.  Veiny but nice, light, oily wrapper.  It's handmade, but could pass for machine-made as it is very uniform and smooth (with the exception of the very apparent veins).  Noticed a tiny green spot on the wrapper.  After toasting and easily lighting, there is an even burn, pleasant taste.  I am definitely partial to Nicaraguan tobacco.  Creamy smoke with a buttery toast aftertaste.  Mild to medium strength thusfar (1" into it).  Good draw, generous amount of smoke. Second third is a slight improvement.  Not exceptionally complex, but definitely satisfying. Final third isn't great - not bad, but not great in terms of flavor.  Still, I would recommend this one as a multi-tasking cigar.  Can't beat it for the price!  3.25/5.0 stars
