Oliva Mega-Sampler Description
The Oliva cigar family isn’t new to the scene. Not even close. In fact, the roots of this cigar family trace all the way back to 1886. Through the years, the Oliva Cigar Co. overcame numerous cases of adversity—including three revolutions—to continue producing high-quality premium cigars that offer a touch of something for everyone. And that’s what you’re getting in the Oliva Mega Sampler. From sweet to spicy, you’ll find what you’re after and more.
The Oliva Mega Sampler contains five each of the following cigars.
Oliva Serie O
First up is the Oliva Serie O, a blend that helped put Oliva on the big stage. Not only did the O series receive an incredible 94 rating—it was also named one of Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of 2013. But securing top spots in Cigar Aficionado is nothing new to Oliva. They’ve had one yearly since 2005, with the exception of 2015.
Made in the tradition of Cuban cigars by using Habano seeds to grow quality tobacco in Estelí, Condega, and Jalapa Valley, this Nicaraguan puro will not disappoint. A tasty Habano binder holds the blend tight, and after a sun-grown Habano wrapper ties everything together, the stogie is ready to go to work.
Once you get this medium to full-bodied cigar burning, a blast of spiciness, earth, and cedar flavors hits your palate. Smoke the stick down a little further, and you’re getting sweet flavors along with a continuation of the earth, spice, and cedar notes. As things wrap up, the cedar is now the star of the show, along with flavors of nuts and coffee.
Take this one for a spin after a full meal. They don’t call them Nicaraguan puros for nothing.
Oliva Connecticut Reserve
Next in the Oliva Mega Sampler is the Oliva Connecticut Reserve. If a mellow to medium-bodied smoke is what you’re after, look no further than this blonde beauty. Putting in work at the heart of this smoke are aged Nicaraguan long-fillers and a Nicaraguan binder. A smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper sits on top and adds a creamy element to the mix.
This cigar starts with an initial flare of spice that you’d expect from a Nicaraguan cigar. Flavors of nuts, sweetness, cream, pepper, and cedar follow. Further down the stick, the nutty flavor picks up along with the addition of leather. The pepper and cedar notes remain. The cigar ends with nuts, leather, and coffee flavors—all in all, an excellent smoking experience.
You can’t go wrong teaming up this cigar with your morning coffee. Carve out a little time for yourself before the world begins.
Oliva Serie G
You don’t want to miss out on the 91-rated Oliva Serie G. This box-pressed cigar packs a secret family blend of Nicaraguan Habano long-fillers held together with a Cuban-seed Habano Nicaraguan binder. An aged, dark African Cameroon wrapper ties everything together, and this stogie is ready to clock in.
Get the Oliva Serie G burning, and creamy chocolate and other sweet flavors strike first. Further down, notes of leather, cedar, and coffee enter the picture. Things wrap up with the creamy chocolate flavor increasing along with that of sweet tobacco. This medium-bodied cigar is great for poker night and backyard get-togethers.
Saison by Oliva
It’s always the season for a Saison by Oliva. This medium to full-bodied cigar combines all of Oliva’s best 2009 tobacco yields to create something special. First, long-fillers from Oliva’s farms in Condega, Somoto, and Estelí come together to form the Saison’s core. A Nicaraguan binder and a smooth, toothy, bronze Ecuadorian Habano wrapper hold everything snug. The Saison by Oliva delivers a thick, chewy, creamy smoke with an even burn. Once lit, you’re in for flavors of leather, wood, cedar, and coffee.
This is your chance to warm up a Saison time machine and take a 2009 tour of four Oliva farms without leaving the comfort of your smoking chair. Grab one of our Oliva Mega Samplers to get five of these gems into your humidor. Don’t miss it!
