Herfin’ Heads: Inferno by Oliva Robusto

Instead of your regularly scheduled Tower of Burn, this week Walt and I bring you a Herfin’ Heads-style dual video review of a cigar you may not have heard of yet: the Inferno by Oliva. The Inferno is a billed as a full-bodied blend that’s chock-full of “dark, savory ligero” while still carrying a surprisingly low price. The name and description had me wondering if we’ve found ourselves a budget price Cain F, wrapped in brimstone and playing it cool as a Famous Smoke Shop house blend. The only way to quench our burning curiosity was for Walt and I to smoke it at the same time on camera.

As with anything that involves either of us talking, it goes on for a bit. However, it’s also monstrously entertaining, and you’ll want to stay put for Jerry’s cameo, it’s funny as blazes. Here’s what happened:
