Over the past couple of weeks, you have probably taken a notice to the additional face in my video cigar reviews. That face belongs to Mike Forry (KnightRid) and he has joined me once again for a joint short ashes review on the Oliva Connecticut Reserve. We have been slowly incorporating Mike into reviews in an attempt to make him feel comfortable enough to venture out on his own with a video reviews, flying solo.
This time around, Mike and I decided to revisit the Oliva Connecticut Reserve. After my shining review of it the first time, and it making its way onto my Top 10 Cigars of 2009 List, we thought it was worth taking another look at.
When the end of the review rolled around, we were both in agreement that the Oliva Connecticut Reserve still has it, and it makes for a fantastic morning cigar when paired with a cup of coffee. The video runs for about twenty-two minutes. After you finish with the video, be sure to drop a comment or two in the field below.

Good to see a new face doing reviews. I think Mike did just fine. Keep up the good work!
Whats wrong with the old faces doing reviews? You don’t heart my face? LOL
Great job Walt…ok ok…great job Mike!
Its hard to beat the Oliva Connecticut when you take everything into account like the price point.
I love these sticks. I prefer the churchill. My B&M has these in stock all the time for around $6. Lucky me.
I love it tell it like it is guys! I usually get a little pepper after burner tingle on the lips with it.
disregard the comment I left above. I blanked I forgot it was the conn. .. I thought it was the v. my bad
Loved The Review and love the Oliva Connecticut Sticks as well good job guys. I don’t ever have any probelms coming across the Connecticut so I usually have about three in my Humidor, always good go to guys. Hey, and Good luck Mike in your future reviews.
Great review you two, I agree 100%. The Oliva Connie is one of my go to cigars. Interesting how your locals choose different brands depending on thier customer base. Locally, EVERYONE is big on Oliva, you’ll find em eveywhere. Anything else is a plus 🙂
After reading my last review, I realized I sounded like a dumbass. Of course your local would choose one brand over another, i just meant in comparison to Oliva. Locally its just such a household name.
Great joint review… Are these cigars any good?
I agree with Walt the Robusto is the sweet spot in the line. I have smoked a 5 pack of the churchills, a box of the lonsdales, 2 boxes of Torpedoes, 3 boxes of the Toros and over a dozen boxes of the Robustos. The Robusto wih coffee in the morning is delightful devine deliciousness!
