Gilberto Oliva, Sr. is one of the true giants of the cigar industry, as he laid the foundation for what would become the preeminent tobacco-growing family in the World. From Nicaragua to the Philippines, Gilberto Oliva’s legacy is truly far and wide, so it is only fitting that the Oliva family create a luxurious cigar in his honor: The Gilberto Oliva Reserva 543.
The Gilberto Oliva Reserva 543 is a tantalizing 5 ¾” x 43 Corona crafted around savory Nicaraguan filler tobaccos which are nestled inside of an Ecuadorian binder leaf and a Sumatra wrapper leaf that alone is enough to get the taste-buds revved up.
The 40 minute or so smoke is filled with delicious cocoa, earth, spice, leather and cream notes that join with a subtle sweet nuance during the smokes crescendo from medium to medium/full structure. A glorious finale brings the curtain down on a truly mesmerizing smoke that is ideal for any occasion.
With its delectable mixture of Oliva’s finest tobaccos, its versatile size and beautiful cedar-wrapped presentation, the Gilberto Oliva Reserva 543 by Oliva is a superb choice for one and all no matter the time or place. Use the cedar to light these treats for an added burst of cedary goodness to the mix.
