Nicaragua has a growing reputation of producing the greatest cigars in the world. The climate and rich soils are the perfect environment for growing tobacco. It’s no wonder that Facundo Oliva set up the family’s tobacco growing and cigar business in Nicaragua. From their roots in Cuba where their father, Melanio, grew tobacco to eventually manufacturing cigars in Nicaragua, they became the second largest manufacturer of Nicaraguan cigars. From this, the Oliva family has earned a stellar reputation. For those searching for Cuban flavor, the Oliva Connecticut Reserve Torpedo is for you!
Some may find that Connecticut wrappers are too mild yet the Oliva Connecticut Reserve Torpedo is multidimensional and does not skimp on flavor. The hand rolled Ecuador-Connecticut wrapper provides a proper nest to the Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-leaf fillers. The unique wrapper is sweet and has aromas of honey and malt. The aged Connecticut Reserve is a mild to medium-bodied torpedo, rich with woodsy flavors and subtle notes of coffee, cream and the sweetness of hay. The draw is smooth and the smoke is toasty with a creamy finish.
In the Cuban tradition the Oliva Cigar Company has developed the exceptional Connecticut Reserve at modest prices. Available in a box of 20 this cigar will make a significant addition to your humidor's collection.
As the sun rises or sets, so can the Oliva Connecticut Reserve be enjoyed morning or night. This fine torpedo makes a wonderful pairing with coffee or a velvety cognac such as Rémy Martin XO.
