Here is another cigar review from Richard Bui, enjoy the read!
When I usually reach for a cigar from my humidor, it is almost always a Cuban. It's not that I'm snob or anything, but I find, more often than not, I like the Cuban taste over Dominicans, Nicaraguans, and so on. But that doesn't mean that I haven't found some wonderful non-Cuban cigars that I equally like, one being the Oliva Connecticut Reserve that I'll be reviewing today.
Oliva is generally better known for their full-bodied cigars such as the Serie G, Serie O, and Serie V. The Connecticut Reserve is a special line of Oliva that is meant to appeal to mild-bodied cigar smokers who aren't looking for an over-powering cigar. The Connecticut Reserve comes in five sizes: Churchill, Lonsdale, Robusto, Torpedo, and Toro. This review will cover the Toro vitola.
Also an interesting tidbit is that you will not find anything about the Connecticut Reserve on Oliva's website except on their ratings page, not sure why that is.
