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. 

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 No. 1 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.

SERIE V 

Serie V is a complex blend of Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos. Blended with specially fermented Jalapa Valley ligero, and finished with a high priming Sun Grown Wrapper. 

Tasting Notes

This flavourful blend exhibits complex tobacco with rich coffee and dark chocolate tones. A subtle and well balanced spice is present throughout.

"...Ten years ago, Oliva Cigar Co. released its Serie V, which was the strongest, most full-bodied cigar the company ever created. But it was also impressive in its ability to render layers of richness and complexity in spite of its power. Ten years later, we found ourselves with the same excellent product. It's difficult enough to maintain such quality and consistency, but even more of an accomplishment when you consider this: Oliva has been acquired by a larger company. In 2016, Oliva Cigar was bought by European cigarmaker J. Cortés Cigars N.V., who wanted a premium brand in its portfolio. Naturally, there were concerns about the Oliva cigars changing and quality suffering. Luckily for the cigar-smoking world, J. Cortés kept Oliva president José Oliva on board after the acquisition, to help ensure that quality was maintained. So far, the change has been seamless and the Serie V remains remarkable for its ability to convey high volumes of flavor, especially at such a low price point. The blend is centered around strong, ligero tobacco from Nicaragua's Jalapa Valley and a high-priming wrapper to complete the taste profile, which is rich in earth, leather and spice though balanced with a sweet touch of molasses..."

First time trying this - and I wasnt disappointed. Easy to smoke, required the smallest of touching-up while burning, and tasted fantastic - especially with some single malt.

Nice looking cigar with no notable imperfections... wrapper had the odd vein or two. Unlit the cigar had that classic Nicaraguan deep earthy tobacco scent. Overall the flavour was good and pretty smooth but not particularly exciting or memorable... the wrapper gives the blend a pleasant but subtle Cuban-esque flavour when smoked. Draw and construction was spot on, although i did need to touch up the burn line several times.

Im not an experienced cigar smoker and have been exploring Partagas and RyJ range. I took a punt on this based on reviews. It really wasnt to my taste. Very bitter throughout despite immaculate construction and burn. No sweet notes and not creamy at all. Not a good introduction to the New World cigars. Maybe I just dont like cigars dominated by bitter mocha flavours.

Amazing rich dark chocolate flavours with hints of leather, cedar and a hint of white pepper. David - C.Gars Ltd Cigar Ambassador
