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. A subtle and well balanced spice is present throughout.

This cigar is without a doubt the best robusto I have ever had,I challenge anybody with a love of the psd4,the boli rc or the monty eddy to smoke this stogie and not be surprised and very impressed,it is dark full bodied and packs an unexpected punch. I have smoked a few cigars by Oliva(series v,g and o and all have been good quality but the series v are definitely the best)and the series v rival any Cuban I can think of,next time I find the time and patience for a robusto it will be one of these!!!

Oliva make great cigars. The serie G belicosso is a particular favourite. The serie V's are also lovely. This double robusto is an impressive size and, because I'm a newbie, I can't talk with any authoriy about chocolate and espresso flavours, I'll deal with the stuff I can comment on. Beautifully made, perfect burn, loads od smoke, easy draw. Smells lovely - less than £12 for an impressive looking cigar. Great. Definately on my must have humidor list.
