The Oliva Connecticut Reserve Robusto is yet another premium cigar from the reputed Oliva family. The Olivas tryst with cigar-making extends back to the year 1886, when Melanio Oliva began growing tobacco in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba. Connecticut Reserve cigars are rolled in smooth and rich Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers that produce a creamy, slightly nutty-tasting smoke. These Robustos have a length of 5 inches and a ring size of 50. Each cigar burns slowly to produce a creamy taste with notes of coffee and wood.
An earthy aroma takes over your senses and lends this cigar an air of class. Connecticut Reserve cigars are made with Nicaraguan fillers and binders to impart a rich smoke. These medium bodied-cigars are coveted among cigar aficionados. Pair them with a glass of dark rum, which has a sweet taste that goes perfectly well with their mildly spicy flavor notes. They are available in boxes of 20.
