Quick Smoke: Oliva Connecticut Robusto

20 Jun 2010

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


The Oliva Connecticut has received many positive reviews, but it recently occurred to me that I had yet to smoking one myself. The Robusto I lit up featured a classic veinless golden Connecticut wrapper. The smoke revealed pleasant flavors of cream, wood, and roast nuts. Construction was flawless, with a sharp black line leading an even burn and sturdy ash. With it’s balanced mild flavors and  lack of the acidic bitterness that holds back so many Connecticut-wrapped cigars, it’s no wonder the Oliva Connecticut has been so well-received.

Verdict = Buy.

    Love these sticks…one of many fine Connecticuts to hit the market in the past year or so with lots of flavor and a great price tag.
