Oliva Master Blends III

The Master Blends III is the third in a line of limited edition cigars from the Oliva Family. This Nicaraguan puro has a beautiful caramel colored Broadleaf Sun Grown wrapper and is adorned with one of the most interesting bands I have ever seen.

This video runs a little longer than I typically like, however, I brought up an interesting new site. For more information on ISOCigars.com please visit Chief Hava’s blog Smoke Signals and read the Desperately Seeking Cigars article.

Great review.

I think the price point will keep me away from these, but who knows, I may snag 1 or 2 sometime to give a shot!

1 suggestion – with the video reviews, would it be possible to list the make up of the cigar and the strength profile? Would be REAL helpful while searching for information about a cigar, especially if we dont have time to watch the whole video at that moment :)


Very nice review! The MB3 is one of my favourites…I wish Oliva would pull up there socks and make a new Master Blends 4! Sadly I think I’ll have to keep on wishing! :(

I actually signed up for ISOCigars.com about a couple of months ago. I sent out a couple of ISO’s for sticks I’ve been searching around for, for quite sometime. I haven’t had any of them filled yet, but I do believe they have signed up a number of B&M’s during IPCPR, so hopefully things will really start cooking soon!

I had four of them and smoked one and really enjoyed it. The price point is a little high, but it is a real quality smoke IMO. I am taking my time to smoke the other three since I can’t see myself going out often and buying sticks at the price point they are at.


A couple of things. You mentioned the interesting label, If You can score a MB I, You will see that those cigars have a Laser etched image on the wrapper itself. A very cool accent feature. Also, The MB I’s are Superior smokes! I like the Robusto best in the MB III line. The Toro second and the Torpedo a distant third. The Torp is kinda middle of the road flavorwise, the others have more defined flavor profiles. IMHO
This line in particular benefits greatly from age as the blend is complex. In comparison the Oliva Serie V line is in yer face OK right now and later.

Sorry I missed Ya on my recent trip, maybe next time.



Sorry Chris! D’Oh!

Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it
