NEVER DONE BEFORE: Gilberto Oliva has been my go-to morning cigar for the last two years. For the money, it's a slam-dunk cigar. Just this morning, I released the hounds and slashed boxes 50% OFF, AND included Free Shipping On Your Entire Order!
The Oliva Cigar Company has emerged as one of the finest cigar makers in Nicaragua over the past 20 years. They have done this by producing premium blends with superb construction that year after year claim 90+ ratings. Every true enthusiast is well acquainted with the brand, but in recent years they have been looking forward to something new to try.
Finally, that wait is over and for their first release since 2012, they are launching two new blends to honor Gilberto Oliva – the man responsible for transforming the company into outstanding tobacco growers and cigar makers.
Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc is a juicy, connecticut wrapped vitola that is expertly constructed. An Ecuador binder and Nicaraguan fillers team up underneath in this mellow to medium-bodied gem. Loaded with creamy flavors, you’ll also notice hints of cedar accompanied by a long, enjoyable finish.
Gilberto Oliva Reserva comes wrapped in a dark Indonesian Sumatra wrapper – a real pleaser. The wrapper itself normally produces a mellower profile, but paired up with an Ecuadorian binder and rich Nicaraguan long-fillers you can expect a zesty medium-bodied cigar with smooth notes of earth, leather, and spice.
