Fabulous smoke. I smoked DUNHILL for 20 years. But, they went out of business. I tried a dozen smokes out. THIS is what i landed on. Great draw. Nice flabor. No twigs. Nicely packed. Truly, a high end smoke at a fair cost. I m all in.

This Villiger cigar had a very good rating online. However the robusto I smoked was plugged, and the cigar was not very well made. Good blending means the binder, filler and wrapper all work together. That was definitely not the case. Needed constant relighting. Taste-wise, not impressive. Kept too long, and lost its character.

I LOVE this cigar. I used to smoke dunhills for 20 years. But, they discontinued them. Those were the rolls royce of smokes. Well, i tried 15 cigars and THIS was my favorite. I even did a youtube review on it if you want to check it out. Great draw. Nice flavor. No twiggs. Medium/Light taste. No bag flavor in your mouth in the morning. I am enjoying these a ton.

Well made, easy to light, decent draw. Mild, good flavor and lasts about 45 minutes.

This has become my favorite go-to mild cigar. I haven t tried that many but I always come back to this one. In fact, I have found that I usually prefer medium bodied cigars because I find most mild ones are too dull and lack flavor. Might just be my palate developing. Regardless, this Oliva Connecticut Reserve is the exception so far. Every first few draws after lighting up I remember how tasty this one is. In fact, it has gotten better with each one. I pick up new flavor notes almost every time. A really enjoyable moment indeed. I ve had 6 of those so far and enjoyed each and every one of them. I let them rest in the humidor a strict minimum of two weeks before lighting up as I do with all cigars. The burn isn t razor sharp but I never had to touch up a single one of em. The draw with a v-cut alone is sometimes a tad too restricted barely for my taste so I tend to go with a straight cut or a v-cut 2-3 pokes of the PerfectDraw tool.

This cigar has become my favorite everyday smoke. It s well constructed and burns even. Excellent draw., nice mellow flavor, no harshness at all.

I was pleasantly surprised with those cigars. Very mild in terms of flavor, although it gets more pronounced after the first third. Smooth and lightly creamy. Great smoke production, nice draw and admirable burn. Great construction and after taste too. Pairs very nicely with a creamy coffee in the morning.

I have always liked them until the last 5 pack. All five were soft with hardly a draw and were terrible. I would like to get them again but I fear they would be no good. I will try them again sometime in the future.

Presently surprised how good the cigar was. Would buy again.

It started out good, easy draw, but into the second half the burn was uneven and it wanted to go out. Not enjoyable.
