Oliva Connecticut Reserve is genuinely spectacular. In fact, this brand has been blending its cigars with exceptional tobacco since 1886. Moreover, founder Melanio Oliva first grew his world-renowned full flavor tobaccos in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba. Three generations and two revolutions later, Melanio's grandson Gilberto found a new place to call home in Nicaragua's fertile lands. Today Gilberto, along with his family, are one of Nicaragua's largest growers of Cuban-seed tobacco. Using the same time-tested curing, blending, and rolling methods that built an empire, the Oliva cigar lineup garnered tons of top ratings from industry experts and consumers alike, culminating with Cigar Snob awarding Connecticut Reserve a 91 point rating in 2013 and 2014.
