“I've been on the hunt for a good, mild cigar to call a "favorite". Last night was the first Oliva Connecticut Reserve (5x50) cigar I've smoked; I have to say it was good. The cigar was well constructed, had a good, even burn and nice draw. I could distinguish hints of nuts and coffee on my palate, which was swamped by creamy, slky smooth smoke on every draw. Yeap, a good mild cigar, indeed. I'm not going to call this one my "favorite" yet (too many to try!), but it is one I'd buy again.”

“In a word - wonderful! So flavorful for a mild-med cigar and delicious down to the nub. Careful though, if you light this up in the morning you won't want to interrupt it to go to work.”

“This was far better than I expected (Oliva Connecticut Reserve). There's some of the Nicaraguan flavors you might expect from an Oliva with bread and butter notes from the Connecticut wrapper. Coffee and cream, sweetened with some dank earthy notes. Wonderful.”

“Very, very nice smoke. I agree with Supertramp - this is a different kind of mild with a smooth but full flavor. Burn was excellent throughout and the draw perfect. This will be one of my favorite milds.”

“First off the Connecticut wrapper is absolutely gorgeous. I'm not a huge fan of milder cigars, but this one has a little more meat on it's bones than other similar sticks. I LOVE the Oliva line, and hadn't tried this one until tonight. I scored this baby in a $5/5 pack when I bought a bundle of Flor de Oliva (how awesome is that!). As I sit here smoking this thing, I'm liking it a lot more after the 1st inch into it. It kinda smooths out and gets a little more flavorful. The draw is suberb, and the ash is white with a nice sharp burn. I get a lot of earth and a slight peppery taste. Kinda woodsy too. Thoroughly enjoyable.”
