I finally found a really great Connecticut cigar at an very affordable cost. Nice smooth taste. Steady even burn. Nice flow. Great value!
Occidental Reserve by Alec Bradley is named after Hendrik Kelner's Occidental factory in the Dominican Republic. Kelner is respected for blending and manufacturing some of the world's most prestigious cigar brands including AVO and Davidoff. The fact that Hendrik Kelner put his factory's name on this cigar speaks to his personal guarantee of its quality and consistency. Manufactured with a Connecticut shade wrapper and a filler of Dominican Piloto, Olor, and San Vincent tobacco, the Occidental Reserve is a great smooth and easy-going mild to medium-bodied everyday smoke that comes packaged in bundles of 20 cigars.
