The Oliva Connecticut Reserve is mild in strength with a Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Nicaraguan binder, and Nicaraguan filler. This is a mild cigar that is creamy packed with spice. It lights well and has an easy draw that is an attribute of all the Oliva cigars. It comes in several different sizes and can be enjoyed no matter how much time you have. This cigar is a great anytime smoke! It is good with your favorite mixed drink, beer, or even a iced tea. This is one of the spicier Connecticuts that I have had. I compare this to the Camacho connecticut and the Nub Connecticut.
