Holt's Cigars 20 Cigar Oliva "Master Blends 3" Monster Deal

Post by Goose55 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 12:58 pm

Holts Nov catalog has a 20 cigar Oliva Master Blends 3 sampler for $69.95. $3.49 a stick. And, I was lucky, Holt's still had the 20 MB3 samplers in stock earlier this morning. They still may have it!

There was only one of these MB3s that came in that wild 5 cigar, $9.95 free shipping sampler that AKPreacher told us about a couple months ago. I could tell just from that one cigar that it was way-way better than any of the others I'd smoked. Perfectly constructed. Cool & slow burning, smooth, rich & subtly sweet. I thoroughly enjoyed it down to the nub. I never knew a cigar could taste so good!

Heres a link to the 20 Oliva "Master Blends 3" sampler for $69.95, should anyone be interested. $3.49 a stick. And also check out the raving reviews written on these ......

Hoping those that love these MB3 cigars can take advantage of this great offer. I updated that link above whereas before it did not take you to Holt's page.

Hurry up and get em before Goose starts building coolerdors.

Now this conversation here is worth the price of admission.

BTW, I got in on the 5 for $10 Oliva special and so far I've only smoked 2 of the 5. I'm not ready for 20 for $70.

We'll, my remaining 3 are aging, so I guess that's good.

Holt's monster deal on these Oliva MB3s may still have some left. Heavenly good cigar. Best I've ever smoked.

I got the 5 Olivia sampler and more recently a 15 cigar sampler, so these on top of cigars I've tried over the decades. The Oliva MB3 stands out way above all of them.

Look, Goose, if you're going to spam me with unsolicited recommendations that I buy a cigar I'm uninterested in purchasing from a retailer I don't like purchasing from, then the least you could do is answer a simple question. Don't blow me off but insist upon being taken seriously.

That's fine. Not twisting your arm. Just sharing with all, with enthusiasm, my experience

Awesome. I'll be at my tobacconist this Saturday and might pick one up on a lark if he has any. Always looking for a good cigar but wont use Holt's.

If there are those that are interested in just a 5 pack we might be able to do a split. $24 per 5 pack shipped I believe would cover it. I could facilitate it if enough people are interested.
