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

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

A subtle and well balanced spice is present throughout.

After much work we arrived at a cigar that, like Serie V, is full flavoured yet smooth. The long filler tobaccos are a blend of Oliva Nicaraguan that emphasizes tobacco from the Jalapa region, an area known for a more nuanced leaf than the Esteli or Condega regions. This carefully aged Jalapa blend produces a particularly flavourful smoke.

The wrapper is a proprietary seed grown by Oliva in Ecuador. The Melanio is a tremendously smooth cigar made up of a hand picked, aged tobaccos that overflows with flavour.

As with all truly special blends, the Oliva Serie V Melanio is very limited. It is available in five sizes that best capture the essence of the blend: Robusto, Churchill, Torpedo, Petit Corona and the double-ended Figurado.

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.

Bought this cigar from the knutsford shop and what an absolutey bloody good decision that was. I smoked it at my local pub whilst enjoying a pint or 2 of Guinness and they were a match made in heaven. The draw was was perfect the burn was perfect it held the Ash for a long time and the build was good. Oliva are quickly becoming a favourite of mine and I absolutely recommend this cigar. Just make sure when you smoke it you have the time to sit down, relax and enjoy it as it will take over an hour to smoke but well worth it.
