Oliva cigars are blended to deliver full body taste while maintaining an unparalleled smoothness.

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.

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.

Tasting Notes

This flavorful blend exhibits complex tobacco with rich coffee and dark chocolate tones.

Really made up with these. Construction is fantastic, burns perfectly with a pleasant draw.They look great with a lustrous dark wrapper and white ash which compliments the wrapper and stays on until half-way. Flavours of dark chocolate, wood and spice all of the way through. I smoke these happily to the nub. One of the cigars was a little firm and I'm a bit frightened to smoke it (as I don't have a humidor yet) but even still a wonderful smoke.

These are great little cigars. The construction is fantastic, with a sharp burn line and white ash that holds on till almost the halfway point. Quite flavourful, beginning with a toasted nutty taste, mellowing out to a smooth smoke with hints of bitter dark chocolate and a subtle spiciness throughout. Would buy again.

I have become an Oliva fan when it comes to new-world cigars and when I went looking for a cheap but a good hand made cigar, seeing these seemed the one to fit the bill. Been in the humidor for almost three days I thought to sample my first one, well sadly not the best. Quite dry which I hope is due to not being in the humidor for very long, but taste was similiar to other Oliva cinnamon with coffee notes I picked up on but really was too dry on the mouth to really appreciate the flavors I like so much from Oliva. I will re-review if the I believe 3 stars is too harsh, so fingers crossed.
