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.

A quality cigar, construction was perfect! Medium to full flavours to start, reminded me of a certain cuban with a yellow box and red writing. Flavours of hey and earth with a fairly strong peppery finish. Nice creamy smoke and perfect draw. First third settles into coffee and a very quick and slight sweetness to it. Second third mellows down to a medium cigar with coffee being the main notes, the subtle sweetness remains. The peppery finish almost vanishing completely. Final third increases in flavour again with more coffee, chocolate and creamy textures, earthy and nutty. Personally I prefer the normal V Serie but this was a pleasant cigar. Perfect burn and nice smoke output. The ash held on for a good 2 inches, which I find to be the case with the Vs. Is it worth the price tag? Make your own mind up about that. 45-50minute smoke. Worth a try.

I am a big fan of Oliva Serie V cigars. They are easily my favourite, with plenty of smoke and chocolate tones. Beautifully constructed with a wonderful draw that is not too loose. This limited cigar is fantastic and I strongly recommend that fans of the Serie V snap them up. My only criticism is that I wish they would last longer.
