Over the past 20 years, Oliva has emerged as one of the finest cigars makers in Nicaragua. Their humble beginnings went from producing inexpensive bundled cigars to year after year landing high ratings and well-deserved spots on many Top 25 lists. Gilberto Oliva was a man who greatly influenced the transformation of this company into outstanding tobacco growers and cigar makers. This new blend, Gilberto Oliva Reserva, honors that patriarch with their first release since 2012.
Gilberto Oliva Reserva comes wrapped in a dark Indonesian Sumatra wrapper. 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.
