Gilberto Oliva Reserve Blanc is a mild bodied stick that utilizes an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper on top of an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan fillers.. This cigar honors Melanio Oliva's grandson, Gilberto Oliva Sr., who grew tobacco in several countries before settling in Nicaragua in the late 1960s. When it comes to premium Nicaraguan cigars, few brands have made as much of an impact on quality and consistency as Oliva. Their ability to create an exceptional (and award-winning) product time and time again has firmly cemented their place as one of the leaders in the Central American market. These mild-bodied cigars are perfect for any time of day, and any type of budget.
