Oliva Connecticut Reserve Robusto

Oliva Connecticut Reserve Robusto. 5x50. Good build, smooth wrap with moderate veins. Light brown wrap. Cut and lit nicely. Medium draw and nice even burn across the stick. Taste of mild leaf, background walnut. More robust on the exhale with pepper notes on the back end. Ash is marbled, mostly darker gray, holds to an inch before the drop.

This is a good, mild, creamy cigar that is not as fine as its premium brethren, but is definitely worth your time. Recommended.

From the company:

"Connecticut Reserve is blended from Nicaraguan long fillers and binder. Finished with only the finest Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, this medium-bodied cigar shows rich flavors as a smooth, silky smoke."
