Crafted by JR Oliva— An Affordable Masterpiece!
No one grows Nicaraguan cigar tobaccos like Oliva. The manufacturer of a slew of top-selling brands, this family-owned company traces its roots to patriarch Melanio Oliva, who began growing tobacco in the legendary Pinar del Río region of Cuba in 1886. In the aftermath of the 1959 Cuban Revolution, Melanio’s grandson Gilberto Oliva immigrated with his family to Spain before eventually moving to Nicaragua and returning to the premium tobacco business. In 1995 Gilberto and his son, Gilberto Jr, launched the “Gilberto Oliva” brand — a marque which evolved into today’s Oliva, a brand that millions of smokers have come to rely on for its outstanding, Cuban-style craftsmanship and flavor.
Now, joining such notable cigar masters and companies such as AJ Fernandez, Nestor Plasencia, Davidoff, and E.P. Carrillo, to name a few, Oliva has also thrown their hat in the ring to create a very special blend made exclusively for us!
A wonderful new addition to our ever-growing Crafted by JR Cigars line, Crafted by JR Oliva cigars are gorgeous smokes made in the classic old-world tradition handed down for generations. This distinguished puro recipe consists of a dark and oily sun-grown wrapper over aged Cuban-seed Nicaraguan Habano binder and long filler tobaccos. With flawless construction, a slow burn, and a fabulous aroma, you will enjoy a rich, medium body smoke with multi-layered notes of earth, leather, dark spices, cocoa, and cinnamon, all punctuated with a long- lasting creamy finish.
Crafted by JR Oliva is currently available in four popular big-ring sizes, along with a beautifully crafted 6.5 x 52-ring Torpedo. The Cigars come presented in aromatic cedar dress boxes with 10 of these beautiful smokes resting inside. And, like all of our hot-selling JR Exclusives, Crafted by JR Oliva Cigars come to you with a very affordable price.
