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.

These are a sublime smoke. I found mine quite easy going but not lacking in flavour. These will be regulars in my collection.

I am sad that the last reviewer had a bad one, I have smoked 3 of these and I will be getting more, as the one thing that DO have is bags of flavour .also a good burn, lots of smoke that tastes so good I don't want to blow it away. I you love a full flavoured Cuban , as I do, its nice to mix up the humidor a bit with some good new world sticks as well, so I say go on treat yourself.....

I'd had one of these in my humidor for about 6 months and decided to try it a few days ago. What a disappointment! Previous encounters with Oliva cigars had always been favourable but not this time. It burnt well and construction was good but they're the only things that this cigar had in it's favour. The first third was very harsh and left an unpleasant aftertaste and the rest was very bland. At times it seemed as if I were just inhaling steam. If you are considering spending your hard - earned cash on a petit corona give this one a miss. There are plenty of Cubans around costing less.
