The wrapper has a nice golden tan color and a fair amount of veins, but nothing more than to be expected by an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Before I light the cigar in the hand the cigar feels a little light and I have a feeling this cigar could be a fairly quick smoke. The one thing that stands out is the label. The white background with gold and brown has some people referring to this smoke as the Oliva white label smoke. When I lit the cigar at first smoke this offers notes very similar to non-buttered popcorn (yea I said it!) and some faint pepper notes which has caught me off guard as this is supposed to be a mild smoke. The primary notes here are nuts and a dry toast with some creaminess. This is a solid mild to almost medium smoke. I enjoyed it very much.
