Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc

CI's #6 New Cigar of 2017!

Olivas newest premium

The Oliva Cigar Company has emerged as one of the finest cigar makers in Nicaragua over the past 20 years. They have done this by producing premium blends with superb construction that year after year claim 90+ ratings. Every true enthusiast is well acquainted with the brand, but in recent years they have been looking forward to something new to try. Finally, that wait is over and for their first release since 2012, they are launching two new blends to honor Gilberto Oliva – the man responsible for transforming the company into outstanding tobacco growers and cigar makers. 

Coated by a golden brown Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc is expertly constructed as you may expect. An Ecuador binder and Nicaraguan fillers team up underneath in this mellow to medium-bodied gem. Loaded with creamy flavors, you’ll also notice hints of cedar accompanied by a long, enjoyable finish. We were fortunate enough to sample some of these at the office, mine was paired with a cup of coffee. I savored it down to the nub and you can bet your britches I secured a box as soon as they hit the docks.

serious wrapper problems
i like the taste of these but it's a shame that the construction is horrendous. in a box of 20, 6 of them had viscous cracks in the wrapper 1 to 3 inches long. another reviewer who had similar problems said they fall apart when being smoked. i'll see after i finish my 5 pack.

First Time Reviewer here...
I will start by saying that I am a cigar novice. I am a reviewing novice, so I don't know any of the standard protocols for a cigar review. While I was smoking the Oliva Gilberto Reserve cigars that I had purchased from CI I happened across a video on YouTube that instructed one on how to properly enjoy a fine cigar. What I had learned from the video I put to use on the remaining Gilberto's that I enjoyed. The first half of a Gilberto I always thought was very mild. I detected mild sweet flavors at the beginning. Being a long cigar, I never could finish one at a sitting. I never enjoyed the relight that day or the next. The cigar never got back to the great beginning. I even researched how to save a cigar for later, too. At any rate, I think that if you have the hour to ninety minutes to smoke one of these from light to nub then you'll really enjoy it.

Smooth & creamy
Superb cigar with plenty of billowing creamy smoke. A nice mild cigar with no sharp edges and an even burn all the way through. Not a complex smoke so if you’re a full body smoker who looks for complexity and nuances, this may not be for you. I love it for the golf course....

It was a pleasure!
The smoke is mild but very satisfying. I had my first one while sitting around the fire pit and having a cold brew, smoked it all the way to the nub! Well constructed, it has a good feel in your hand. This is definitely one of my top shelf cigars in my cigar box!

Mild but flavorful
This is a great cigar for mornings or anyone that doesn’t want something with a lot of strength. The reserve blanc doesn’t sacrifice flavor in a mild strength stick. There is tons of rich creamy smoke with good flavors of cedar, cream and natural sweetness. This is my favorite morning and golf cigar. Burns perfectly and slowly.

Solid Cigar.
Took a chance on a box special being an Olive fan. I'm very pleased with this line. Nice mild to medium stick with smooth subtle flavors. I've had a few burn issues with the wrappers or I would rate a 5 star.

Ok sticks.
I lit my first stick over the weekend and I was satisfied at first but then I found myself having to light that stick 2 more times before I was finished. Nice draw also smooth but I didn’t like having to re light more than once.

Disappointed
I like Oliva cigars, but was very disappointed with the wrapper on these cigars. On more then one cigars the wrapper has unraveled and falls off. My humidor is set for 72% humidity so it is not my humidor. Not happy with this purchase.

Fly Fishing Friend
Spend a lot of time on the water fly fishing and the Reserva Blanc 550 is a great companion. Smooth effortless draw allows me to enjoy the great flavor and clouds of smoke and still focus on my fly in the water. I always try to catch a trout before I light up, but this cigar makes this rule tough if the fishing is slow!

Mellow Mild/Medium Nice After Dinner Cigar
Purchased and placed in humidor until recently. I have enjoyed three or four of these and find them a nice even burning cigar that holds an ash. I have not had any issues with the Gilbert Oliva Reserva Blanc 550! Flavor and burn has so far been consistent. I would recommend if you want a mild/medium (closer to the mild side) after dinner cigar!

Dissapointed!
I got this on a daily deal and since it was from Oliva i felt good about them. I must say i am disappointment. I had just started to smoke the cigar and i notice a small burn hole was develoing in the middle of the stick and the hole was getting bigger and bigger. I have never seen this on a cigar!! so now i had the cigar burning in two places. Unbelievable! i don't recommend this cigar!
