Oliva Connecticut Reserve Short Cigar Review

Pre-Smoke

Silky, light brown Connecticut wrapper. Oily, veiny and there are a couple of dark color splotches. The feel of the cigar is a little spongy.

For this review I am smoking the churchill (7″ x 50) vitola. It costs about $7.00.

Smoke

A burnt oak flavor is the first and main flavor to start off and it is pretty good. It burns evenly and the draw is great.

The cigar stays very consistent throughout. Oak is the mainstay and, if you like that flavor a lot, then you will like this cigar a lot. It ranges from burnt to sweet but it’s oak all the way.

After-Smoke

For the Oliva Connecticut the complexity is confined to its oak flavors. It’s a fine cigar and an enjoyable enough cigar. Now, if you are thinking there are going to be a lot of flavors then you need to look elsewhere.
