Oliva Adding Connecticut Blend

Oliva Cigar Co., maker of a host of top-rated cigars, is coming out with a mild version aimed at entry-level cigar smokers. The Oliva Connecticut Wrapper Reserve will be out in February. It will be the company's only boxed cigar that wears a Connecticut-seed wrapper.

The new brand comes in five sizes: Churchill, Torpedo, Toro, Robusto and Lonsdale, and will range in price from $4 to $7. The wrapper is grown in Ecuador from Connecticut seed. The filler and binder blend is all-Nicaraguan tobacco, but it's devoid of ligero, and made only with the lighter viso and seco tobaccos.

The cigars were rolled in October, and are almost ready to ship.
