Made in the original Cuban tradition of growing the same seed in diverse regions of the country to produce a distinct blend.

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 blend was achieved by growing Habano in Esteli, Condega and Jalapa Valley. Sporting a Sun Grown Habano wrapper, the Series O has notes of dark tobacco with spice and rich cedar.

This is a wonderful smoke free start to finish. Mellow with floral notes, smooth draw, just right, no harshness or bitterness right up to the end. Highly recommended.

Newbie cigar enthusiast here. Wow, what a cigar, what a cigar, a must have. Great long smoke, full of flavour, and the shape.. simply amazing. Needs to be enjoyed slowly. Smooth, full of flavour, long 55 minutes smoke.

This cigar performed surprisingly well considering it is a perfecto, the draw was perfect and burn was even. It has a soft Oliva character, not as intense as other Olivas in respects to both flavour and strength, but still holds the main traits. For the price I can't complain, the smoke was 30-45 minutes and overall a solid bet if you just want a cigar on a sunny day.
