Oliva Connecticut Reserve Robusto Cigar Review – This 5×50 stick features an oily firmly packed dark tan wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap and pungent hay aroma. First light reveals a plugged draw with minimal mild-medium smoke output showing a generic leafy smoky flavor on a short finish. The first third doesn’t improve much with just the flavors changing to a fleeting blast of sweet nutty coffee. 25 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the burn is flawless but the draw still very snug. Flavors are the same now just with a slightly longer finish. Ending at 45 minutes the last third showed no changes.
