Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc


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.

Big Smoothie!
Look, this is one the top 3 cigars in my stable. The quality of the construction of the cigar is always solid. The draw is always smooth. This was my first time trying it in a Churchill but, it did not disappoint. It had the same great flavor and paired well with my dark beers and Cognac. More of a medium bodied cigar, not overbearing or too peppery. Try it and I'm sure it will become a mainstay in your stable as well.

Great cigar,,, a favorite. However, the cigars in these 5-packs were, surprisingly and disappointingly, a little more "stemmy" than should be encountered in a stick of this pedigree and price point.

Worth a try
I really wanted to love these cigars but instead I just like them, a lot. Flavor, burn and draw was good and they really are a good smoke overall and follow along with the Oliva family tradition of uncompromising quality and construction. I guess I am spoiled by the "V's" but I intend on purchasing more of these in the future.

Solid Citizen
As one might expect this is an excellent cigar in all respects. It is beautifully constructed, has a smooth draw and even burn. While it is mild I expected it to be more so, thus the four star rating. I would buy this cigar again.

What?!?
Very nice smoke. Even smooth draw, with a nice mild vanilla taste. Perfect for a mild cigar smoker like me. Absolutely no bitter from start to nub-smoking finish. In the words of Arnold, "I'll be back"..for more of these gems. Got them on a special C.I. deal, and boy howdy did I score!

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.

These cigars tasted smooth and smoked well for the first 2/3rds. The last 1/3 was a bit more bitter and stronger for my taste. I would still highly recommend these for the value.

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!

Good Addition from Oliva
The construction is good and the draw is just about right. It's flavor is markedly good, but not in the same level as the Oliva V Melanio.

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!

2nd Chance For Oliva
What a lovely stick! I have to admit; I've tried the much-ballyhooed Oliva V. And maybe it was the price, or hype; but I don't remember, being all that impressed (I'm sure it wasn't bad; just didn't stick in my mind, as a must-have-on-hand stick). This Gilberto RB OTOH; sweet! Good burn, nice flavor; and not that this is the measure, of a good cigar...but man. I could smoke this, down to my finger-tips...and it never got hot or harsh.
