COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 779: 2.0-Mile Cigar
 Gilberto Oliva Reserva, Indonesian Sumatra, Nicaragua, Oliva Cigars, Robusto A quick and short 2.25-Mile Cigar-Walk is just what the doctor ordered with this Indonesian Sumatra wrapped Gilberto Oliva Reserva by Oliva Cigars USA. This was my second time with this cigar.

I thought since my first impression of this Gilberto Oliva Reserva was kind of “Meh”, I thought I’d see how it would behave outside on one of my early morning Cigar Walks… Just as expected!

A good and decent performer lasting just the correct amount of time for me to get my heart rate up a bit and get some easy miles in.

I’ve got three more from a 5-pack purchase, so we’ll see how it goes.

 Gilberto Oliva Reserva, Indonesian Sumatra, Nicaragua, Oliva Cigars, Robusto So, as some you might know, 2022 is my year to explore Sumatra Wrapped cigars; so this Gilberto Oliva Reserva by Oliva Cigars was suggested to me… so here it is!

Through an open and airy draw, I get dry smoke and cedar wood tobacco flavors with a soft white pepper retrohale and that’s all she wrote so far…

Coming into the second third, not much has changed… the draw continues to provide plenty of smoke through an open draw delivering cedar and now I think I can detect some ginger notes on the finish.

This was definitely a lightly packed cigar providing some pretty one-dimensional “Dry” tobacco flavors. I purchased a 5-pack, so we’ll be giving it another try soon.
