The Oliva name is synonymous with top-shelf cigars. The brand has accrued a multitude of accolades and critical acclaim since its launch in the 90's. One of their newest releases, Gilberto Oliva Reserva Blanc, gets our nomination here at CIGAR.com as the best new mellow blend on the market. The easy-smoking Reserva Blanc sports a Connecticut Shade wrapper securing especially well-aged Nicaraguan long leaf. Creamy and compelling, you'll get lost in its subtle cedar, sweet hay, and hazelnut nuances.
Macanudo has earned a reputation for consistency since its inception. The brand makes quality cigars which appeal to enthusiasts with a wide range of palates. Never satisfied with status quo, the brand continues to innovate with new blends. This rewarding release from their Inspirado line showcases Macanudo’s innovative spirit and a real finesse with fine tobaccos.
Inspirado started out as a European exclusive, but eventually made its way to the United States. Once it hit stateside, Macanudo created two new blends: Inspirado Black, and the ‘92’ rated brick & mortar exclusive, Inspirado Orange. In the context of the Macanudo brand, the Inspirado Orange is more full-bodied, but with a balanced flavor profile and a crisp, clean finish. Critically acclaimed and coveted across the globe, expect tons of rich, buttery smoke highlighted by leather & mesquite qualities, complimented by notes of almonds & sweet pepper. Thankfully, this amazing blend is finally available to all.
