It's no secret that Oliva Cigar Company has risen over the last three decades to become a top player in the arena of premium cigars, consistency ranking among Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of the Year, and earning the coveted top prize more than almost any other brand. The Olivas specialize in Nicaraguan tobacco, often attributing their success to the wise decision to begin stockpiling and aging Nicaraguan leaf during the cigar boom of the '90s. This means that, whether there's a tobacco shortage or not, Oliva cigars boast the quality tobacco to get the job done—every time!
And while Oliva is primarily known for medium to full-bodied profiles, the family has proven they are more than capable in the realm of mellow smoking experiences as well, as evidenced by the hugely popular Oliva Connecticut Reserve cigar. This beauty makes use of the family's Nicaraguan leaf throughout the binder and filler, being finalized in a silky Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper.
What does the Oliva Connecticut Reserve cigar taste like?
The Oliva Connecticut Reserve cigar is as smooth and flavorful as they come, offering a mild-medium body and dependable flavors of buttered crackers, clean cedar, barnyard hay, mixed nuts, and cream through the finish.
