The premium handmade Connecticut Reserve is one of my favorite afternoon smokes that warms my palate for the more powerful Oliva blends that I prefer to smoke in the evening. However, it has so much character that it can easily hold its own at just about any time of the day if you so choose. Using the same top-quality aged tobaccos found in other Olivas, this gem has a silky, golden-bronze Connecticut wrapper to soften the flavor. Moreover, speaking of taste, this is a very delicious, mellow stick with savory notes of cocoa, graham cracker, cedar, and just a touch of spice. Oliva Connecticut Reserve is a very well-refined luxury cigar that I often pair with a nice Belgian wheat, or smoke after a decadent dessert.
