Oliva Connecticut Reserve

Description

A mellow-bodied gem from Oliva.

The Connecticut Reserve from Oliva is a fantastic, mellow to medium-bodied handmade dressed in a silky Connecticut wrapper. This wrapper offers an exceedingly creamy flavor and mouthfeel, which complements the Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers within perfectly. After significant aging, each cigar envelops the palate with layers of thick flavor, leaving behind subtle notes of wood, coffee, and cream. Mellow it is, but short on flavor it isn't. This cigar truly satisfies, and Oliva fans will find this as a wonderful change of pace. Here's your morning cup o' joe cigar, my friend!

These are one of my favorites. The draw is always good. The burn is even and the taste is almost creamy to me. Good stick for sure.

I like a good, mild Connecticut cigar that burns well & holds a good ash. And that is not too long. The Oliva Connecticut Reserve Reserve fits that bill.

I thought that this cigar was a fine choice. I am a fan of the Connecticut wrappers and make no apologies for that. Oliva tops my list of favorites and when I share them with others I draw the same reaction. Actually, I wish I bought more of them on my last order.

Oliva Connecticut Reserve

Jeff K

Oliva has more than a handful of great blends in their portfolio, but no Connecticut among their signature lines…until now. Enter the NEW Oliva Connecticut Reserve.

Utilizing a striking Connecticut wrapper and Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers, this Oliva is a welcomed addition to their already healthy sized line. The band is very similar to their other lines, but with a stark white background. You’d think a white band on a gentler cigar would look horrible- not the case at all. I love the packaging; it’s well designed, definitive and eye catching.

The Connecticut Reserve is on the smoother side, but it still retains a solid amount of flavor. Smooth for sure, but with some strong notes of coffee and white pepper, complemented by a meaty, earthy core- it’s a very different tasting Connecticut. Although I think its one of a kind profile puts a refreshingly, unique spin on a typical gentler Connecticut, the way it finished was a little unsettling. It had a lingering aftertaste, which almost tasted a little dirty. It really stuck with me and put a damper on my enjoyment of the cigar. I kind of have the feeling that it’s something that could grow on me, but I’m two sticks in and no such luck.

As far as quality goes- no qualms here. The Connecticut Reserve burned exquisitely; it honestly couldn’t have gotten any better. The draw was consistent and comfortable and the ash (although a bit lumpy) was firm and white. 

This cigar is a definite stick to try. I’d be willing to bet some serious cash that this will quickly become a lot of people’s favorite cigar. Gentle is popular, different is good, and it’s very reasonably priced- so it definitely has a strong appeal. For me personally, I’d say it is just a few steps away from a great cigar. I feel it has a lot to offer in terms of creatively blended tobaccos and complex flavors but it’s missing that polished, refined edge.
