Smooth with a solid draw and a hint of peppery at the finish. Very consistent to the end.

Got one of these at a local smoke shop at the advice of the proprietor. I explained that I am a bit of a newbie...and am not yet to the stage where I enjoy strong cigars. I have liked other Oliva cigars but after trying this, I have a new favorite. I cannot speak for the smokers with years of experience with cigars, but for those who are just getting their feet wet, this is an excellent cigar. It has a great flavor, but isn't overpowering.

The Connecticut Reserve Robusto may well be my favorite "Connecticut". There are times in the late afternoon or even late evening when a simple but totally enjoyable smoke is just the thing to relax the mind and soothe the soul. The draw is remarkably smooth and consistant throughout while the smoke fills the mouth with light cream and spice. It finishes dry on the lips and memorable in the nose. For me, it's perfect complement is a glass of single malt scotch; my choice with this cigar being a Glenlivet 15 yr French Oak Reserve. Deep, rich oak overtones matching perfectly with the saucy spice of the stick. This smoke hs become my daily companion. Pleasant dreams.

A very well constructed stick with a beautiful wrapper, great burn and draw. It is a very mild Connecticut so it can be smoked pretty much any time of the day with no buzz or high whatsoever. I would recommend this to new smokers or anyone who is looking for a very light smoke. It does lack a little in the flavor department compared to other Connecticuts though....

"Classy as well as Consistent!"
Definitely more medium than mild, creamy, razor-sharp burn lines, open draw with heavy smoke production. Tasty to the very, very end.... Ouch!

"Best Cigar in it's price range"
One of my favorites.
Every one has been the same great smoke.
Pull off the band 'cause its great all the way down to your fingertips.
Always some in my humidor.
If you like Connecticut you should love this.
I think it's the best cigar in it's price range.

This is currently my favorite cigar. Oliva really give me the best quality for the price. I really enjoy the smooth draw and variety of flavors from this Connecticut Reserve. It's complex enough and also not too strong. I bought a box of them and can't wait to smoke each and every last one. Enjoy!

"A strong Macanodo, very flavorfull."
Got a robusto with a sampler when purchasing a V series, left it for a morning Sunday smoke (it's a Connecticut wrapper after all) I was surprised with all the flavor it carries, Nice medium smoke for the morning or if you smoke on an empty stomach!

What can I say. This cigar is smooth, light, tasty and feels good between the fingers. It's everything a mild cigar aught to be. Easy Draw and great taste. Good for Morning coffee and eveing drinks.
