Occidental Reserve Connecticut puts two of cigar enthusiasts' favorites together: the Alec Bradley name and value pricing. For nearly 20 years running, these dependable smokes have been satisfying the taste buds of mellow cigar fans everywhere. And though they tout bargain bin pricing, this cigar is a high-quality smoke. Why? Three words: Hendrik “Henke” Kelner. When you want to make a satisfying cigar, you enlist the guru behind Davidoff in the Dominican Republic. The blend is simple, but effective...Henke has hand-picked Dominican Olor, Piloto Cubano, and San Vicente tobaccos, bound them in a U.S. Connecticut leaf, and topped it all off with an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. From each puff, you'll experience cedar, sweet cream, vanilla, and gentle spices. It’s not often than you get more than what you paid for - but try Occidental Reserve Connecticut, and you’ll find a perfect example. Add some to your cart today!
I tried a bundle of 20 on Sept 5, 2021. Four of the 20 had a draw so hard that I threw them away. That s 20 % o the bundle. In looking through some sites trying to find a decent economical cigar, I saw your pitch. I was going to buy bundle and try them but they were out of stock. Then I remembered that I had looked at them before and found the receipt in my cigar file and found the notes. It is interesting to note that all but one of your 9 current reviews were from 2011 to 2017. I think you need to updated survey.
Very nice cigar mellow great price !
Really enjoyable cigar. Nice and mellow, consistent burn, easy draw. My new favorite.
If your craving that perfect cigar after eating a delicious meal, look no further. It won t break the bank like a box of Vega Finas, pairs well with most liquors, the mellow body won t overpower the palate, and the flavor is very soothing and prominent. These are good anytime of the day, but these are my go to for relaxing with a cognac, scotch or a bourbon after dinner. These may seem like a hit or miss if smoked right away, but don t discourage these gems, if you get unlucky with one. These also get better with age, and show their best consistency, even burn pattern and flavor profile at around 3 months in a 70% hmidor. I can attest, if you treat these right, they absolutely do deserve every star of that 5 star rating they currently hold.
The OCCIDENTAL RESERVE CONNECTICUT CHURCHILL is a well-constructed and very consistent for a bundled cigar. Has a particularly good even burn, pleasing aroma, plenty of smoke and a consistent mild to medium strength. A good cigar at a good price.
Simply an enjoyable go to cigar. Love it!
As a novice I decided to try these after going on a budget and reading the reviews. Can t go wrong with these beauties that you can enjoy any time of day. Has a soft mint taste but NOT over powering. Will definitely order again and keep in stock in the humidor for sharing. Better than higher priced cigars.
A very good smoke comparable to the Olivia Connecticut at about half the price...it is now my daily cigar.
I received my order of 20 today. I had been smoking Olivia Connecticut but I decided to try these based on recommendation and reviews and I was not disappointed! Very smooth and enjoyable...these will likely be my everyday go to cigar.
