Oliva 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 flavorful blend exhibits complex tobacco with rich coffee and dark chocolate tones. A subtle and well balanced spice is present throughout.

Had one of these quite fresh from the packet, and was pleased with the results. Earthy beginnings give way to spice and strong, wooden leather tones, with a lingering oak aftertaste. Smoke production seems to increase exponentially throughout, resulting in a draw of astronomic proportions in the last third, and then... it's all over! A little faster burning than Cuban robustos, it seems, but not any more loose or poorly crafted. Certainly worth the price paid, and certainly worthwhile sitting on; if it's this full on in its green state then I can barely wait to try one that's been adequately aged. The only downside was a tiny split that had to be plugged with a craftily placed finger tip throughout, but this was a failing in handling on my own part, and not one involved in manufacture.
