    The card promises a 50 inch diameter cigar but it's a regular robusto with the smoothest wrapper I've seen in many years.

    The cigar feels hard and the draw is tight so I'm going to have to pay attention.

    De Olifant reminds us of the glory days of the Dutch shortfiller cigar industry. A very accessible factory where they also roast coffee beans.

    At the back of the card we see Henk Kelner Senior and Junior together wit the owner of De Olifant, so I'm guessing they created this blend.

    Overall a very enjoyable cigar. My only beef with this specific one is that it was rolled too tight.
