Oliva Connecticut Reserve Toro

A while back I reviewed the Camacho Connecticut and discussed the other Connecticut that was entering the fray around the same time. Both of these sticks were marketing a fuller bodied smoking experience than your usual Connecticut wrapped cigar. Although I enjoy mostly full bodied sticks, I do enjoy a mid bodied cigar when the time is right and I usually reach for a Connecticut wrapped smoke. Past favorites have included the RP 1999, the RP Connecticut, the NUB Connie, and Devils Weed. While I for one was all for adding a little spice to “jazz up” the typical flavor profile of a Connecticut, I was hoping that these blends would not be over the top and find a nice niche somewhere in between. Well…you seen what I thought of the Camacho, now let’s see how the Oliva stacks up…

Graet review Brian..I really enjoy your reviews..they are informative and concise…Also we seem to have simular palletes..which helps me alot in deciding weather or not to try a cigar..as far as this cigar goes..though I am not typically a fan of Connecticut wrappers..I do enjoy the occational Oliva and Camacho Connies..and It’s a toss up for me between the two sticks..both a pretty darn good for a Connecticut..
Keep up the great work

Thanks Rob. Appreciate the comments. I like both of these connies as well even though my prefernce leans towards the full bodied end of the spectrum. I find the Oliva to have just a bit more balance than the Camacho.

Nice video Brian. Really enjoy this cigar with a cup of coffee. The NUB connie is similar of course both Oliva smokes. Hope your enjoying the USA mens hockey team. Keep up the great reviews. CT

Excellent review. These are my go to smokes for a morning smoke with coffee. I really enjoy the Toro size also.

I think the Camacho is a bit stronger on my palette, but is still enjoyable for the afternoon smoke.


Excellent review, keep them coming.

Nice review…bought a couple a seeing it and was not dissappointed. Not usually a mild cigar smoker but these, as you said were very flavorful. My only disagreement is they dont measure up to the Camachos. And I think the Casa Toranos are a notch above these also!! JMHO
