Oliva Connecticut Reserve Cigars bring a rich and bold taste to your fingertips in a sleek and smooth package. You’ll find their pleasantly mellow taste and delicious range of flavors quite hard to resist. Each cigar is concocted with a premium selection of the finest Nicaraguan tobaccos to create a long filler. The Nicaraguan binder with its lusciously smooth texture holds the filler in place. A luxurious and silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper is then used to finish off each hand-rolled piece of perfection.
Although the cigar’s strength is relatively mild, its flavor is not. Enjoy hints of subtle woodiness, complemented with notes of coffee and cream as you indulge in each draw. These cigars are featured in eight different sizes, with the largest being the Churchill at 7 x 50, and the shortest being the Petit Corona at 4 x 38. These cigars can be best enjoyed as a morning smoke, for their non-overpowering presence and pleasant flavor.
Oliva Cigars started as the dream of one man, Melanio Oliva, who began harvesting tobacco in the fields of Pinar del Rio in 1886. Although the family-run business has suffered a few hard blows at the hands of political unrest in its native land, it has managed to establish a lasting legacy that has grabbed the attention of cigar connoisseurs across the globe. They continue to uphold the attention to detail and quality that their patriarch established over a decade ago. The Oliva Connecticut Reserve line has even received a rating of 91 in both 2013 and 2014 in the esteemed publication, Cigar Snob.
