Olivar 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 is my favourite cigar. Hands down the most enjoyable smoke Ive had in the short time Ive been smoking cigars. It is immaculately built, burns perfectly and draws beautifully. Admittedly Im by no means an aficionado but smoking this little beauty was the first time I could really pick out some flavour. Nice earthy notes on the draw, bit of spice on the retro and finishing with a lovely pepper taste on the lips. This was the first time I tried a quality Maduro wrapped cigar and Im a fan. Ive had a few darker smokes since but this little belicoso is the one that started it all. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try something new.

Expect about 40 mins from a this, quite a fast burner. Light bodied with subtle chocolate and coffee. Very smooth, no spice or pepper. Base notes of that Nicaraguan nutty flavour with a leather finish. I enioyed this Oliva, clean tasting and no bitterness. A little light for my tastes and did burn quite quick for its size. Good lunch time smoke.

Superb cigar! Lit well, nice draw, plenty of rich grey smoke and a beautifully packed whitish, grey ash. It has a nice rich flavour but not too overpowering. I'm having it with a glass of neat Makers Mark and they are complimenting each other well. I bought this to go with a varied selection of holiday cigars and now I'm regretting only buying the one. I'm halfway through and still the ash is sitting in one piece from lighting - not bad considering I'm sitting outside with a fair breeze blowing. Oliva has always made fine alternatives to my favoured Cubans but in my option they are surpassing themselves these days. Oooops! Took my eye of the ball and now have a lap full of ash - no matter, it was worth it. Excellent smoke at an excellent price.
