One of the first new cigars from Oliva in over five years, Gilberto Oliva Blanc Corona turned some serious heads at the 2017 IPCPR Convention, along with its sister cigar, Gilberto Oliva Reserva. The Gilberto Oliva series follows the Serie V Melanio, which was made to commemorate the brand’s patriarch, Melanio Oliva. This one honors Melanio’s grandson, Gilberto, and what a way to pay tribute indeed! In the case of Gilberto Oliva Blanc, Nicaraguan fillers are surrounded by an Ecuadorian binder and a gorgeous, golden Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The result is a similar flavor profile to the Reserva version, just toned down a bit. Gilberto Oliva Blanc is mellow, mild, and creamy, much unlike the powerhouse sticks the Oliva Cigar Company usually puts out. Fans of mild-bodied cigars should definitely keep reading.

 

Rolled precisely and seamlessly in typical Oliva fashion, Gilberto Oliva Blanc demonstrates the immense craftsmanship found exclusively at Tabacalera Oliva in Nicaragua. A solid draw produces silky smooth streams of cool, blue smoke, immersing the palate in a creamy array of earthy tobacco goodness. Notes of hay, cedar, and cinnamon remain present throughout, along with a crisp, clean finish. Gilberto Oliva Blanc is intriguingly pure, yet so satisfying at the same time. On the lighter side of mild-medium, Gilberto Oliva Blanc is a stick for any time of day. A smaller, quicker smoke, the Corona measures at 5 3/4” x 43. It is a little cigar with tremendous flavor.

 

Typically, any cigar that comes out of Tabacalera Oliva in a box, rather than a bundle, would be considered a connoisseur-level cigar. After all, that is their specialty these days. In the case of Gilberto Oliva Blanc, however, pretty much anyone can enjoy to the fullest the pure, relaxing experience it provides. At a reasonable price point, a mild body, and a straightforward flavor profile, Gilberto Oliva Blanc makes a perfect beginners’ cigar, as well as an “every day favorite” for those of us that normally smoke the stronger stuff. Gilberto Oliva Blanc pairs well with white wine, champagne, or a glass of iced tea, and makes a great light cigar to smoke during the hotter months. Similar in stature to Oliva Connecticut Reserve or perhaps Flor de Oliva Gold, Gilberto Oliva Blanc is one of the few Connecticut offerings to come out of the Oliva Factory in its history. When Oliva spends five years working on a new release, you know it is going to be something special. Gilberto Oliva Blanc Corona is just that, and so much more. Grab a box today and experience the rare lighter side of Oliva.
