You cannot get any better than Oliva at the moment! Look at the high profile awards that they have collected in the last 3 months:-

- Oliva V Melanio Figuarado just been awarded the No1 Cigar of the Year by the Cigar Aficionado blind test panel.
- The Oliva V Melanio Double Toro was ranked number 5 cigar of 2014 by the Cigar Journal.
- Oliva were presented with the UK Cigar Producer of the Year in 2014 by the Spectator Cigar Awards in November in London.

Mitchell underwent a rigorous sampling exercise in the summer of 2014 to carefully select the blend and create a stylish design using the award winning Serie V Melanio as his inspiration.

The cigars are boxed in 10’s and blend consists of an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, with a Nicaraguan filler and binder.

A little bit of background to Oliva...

The Oliva Cigar story began in the late 1800s, when Melanio Oliva started growing cigar tobacco in Cuba. His heirs carried on the family tradition in the fields, but it was his grandson Gilberto Oliva Sr. who began making cigars.

As with so many cigar stories, Gilberto Oliva Sr. faced a difficult road. He left his native Cuba in 1964, and eventually started working for the Plasencia family in Honduras. In 1995 he and his son Gilberto Jr. created a cigar within Plasencia’s factory called Gilberto Oliva. A year later, they set out to open a factory of their own, and shortened their brand name to Oliva.

Business was tough in those days, and Oliva struggled. Faced with dwindling reserves of cash, in a cost-cutting move they turned to Gilberto Sr.’s robust stocks of Nicaraguan tobacco, which changed the flavour profile of Oliva cigars at a time when the interest in Nicaraguan flavour was increasing.

Nicaraguan tobacco helped Oliva survive. The cigar that brought it to the attention of connoisseurs debuted in 2006: Oliva Serie V. Made by a small group of rollers and blended for strength and style, the Serie V line was an immediate hit. In 2012, to pay tribute to the first man in the family to grow cigar tobacco, Oliva added the Melanio version, which is distinguished from the original by its Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. The No1 Cigar of the Year 2014, Oliva Serie V Melanio Figuarado has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. It’s a classic smoke.

Lovely little cigar. Burns very well and evenly, never seems to go off, even for minutes at a time. Lots of smoke. Super creamy & coffeey flavours, I cant say I got any spice / pepper from it, some nuts delivered in a non oily way, very nice if not overly complex. Its very decent value for money, not incredible value for money.

Nice chunky number - as said spicy and very woody. Good draw and great stayer, nice lasting after taste.

As I new comer to cigars I was really looking forward to this. Smoked whilst walking the dogs and really enjoyed it. It was quite spicy at first but mellowed out and carried on until there wasn’t enough to hold. Beautifully made no complaints.

A lot of good reviews, but not for me Im afraid. Very peppery from start until a third the way through. Very woody throughout. Didnt have the smooth, rich flavour I prefer. That said, good construction and draw. Quite a low smoke output. This one, not for me.
