Oliva Connecticut (toro)

After a few weeks in the humidor, I'm ready to review this one.  Grabbed a box for $65+shipping on  Had one right away, and wasn't impressed, but seems that it just needed some time to recover.  One inch of the way in, and it is decent so far.  Toasty, woody flavor.  The construction is good, and the ash is standard for Oliva - very good.  Light wrapper, oily sheen, a few pronounced veins.  Android just ate my "starter" photo, so this one will have to do.

Second third is showing some white pepper and some bitterness.  For me, I prefer the Serie O or V.

Final third got a little more bitter and almost stale.

3.0/5.0 stars
