Oliva Connecticut Reserve Robusto by Oliva Cigars

In the initial third, the Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper sets the stage with a creamy, smooth buttery entrance. The first puffs dance on the palate, introducing a subtle mix of cedar and light pepper notes followed by sweet tea and nuts.

Into the second third, the Nicaraguan binder steps in, adding a layer of complexity to the experience. The cedar notes persist, but now they’re accompanied by a hint of earthiness, pepper, and a touch of leather.

The last third. Now, the cedar and earthy notes are joined by a subtle sweetness, creating a rich and fulfilling climax. It’s like the satisfying resolution to a well-crafted narrative, leaving you with a sense of contentment.

So, my fellow cigar enthusiast, the Oliva Connecticut Reserve is a tale told in three parts – a story of creamy beginnings, nuanced development, and a bold, flavorful conclusion. The Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan filler work in unison, crafting a narrative that’s sure to leave a lasting impression on your palate. Cheers to the artistry of Oliva!
