Voted #1 Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 cigars of 2014!
Named for the founding father of Oliva Cigars, the Oliva Serie V Melanio is composed of aged Nicaraguan ligero tobaccos beneath a slick Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The result is a well-balanced, full-bodied smoke with rich, nutty, and creamy character, along with the excellent craftsmanship we've come to expect from the Oliva cigar family. The excellent Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado exudes strong and savory character in a perfectly crafted, box-pressed 6 1/2 x 52 Figurado vitola.

very good consistent smoke

I continue to be amazed how good this cigar tastes. The pre smoke of the fresh tobacco aroma enhances the flavor I get when smoking my OV Melanio. I even get complements on good it smells when I smoke it in public. I give them as gifts to close friends and each time its the same result. That was great cigar where can I get more. This my smoke with my family and friends. The cigar looks classy and super well constructed. For the price I can't go wrong, great cigar. "High V to O Melanio"!

I have a certain brand and type of cigar that I enjoy on the golf course, and Best Cigars always has the best price and quality of my cigars. I would definitely suggest that you try Best Cigars at least once, and then you will be a customer for life.

This cigar never disappoints! The Oliva Melanio is my favorite cigar. I always keep this smoke in my humidor. when I get below 10, I consider that as an out of stock and immediately place another order. Easy to see why this cigar was the #1 rated cigars a few years ago! Buy this stick!!!

These are always a pleasure to smoke. Excellent flavors and construction usually. For some reason the last couple boxes of melanios I’ve purchased have been lacking. They had weird coloring and imperfections in the wrapper and muted flavors and aroma. Even after a couple months of rest in my humidor. I’ve never had a problem with them until recently, so maybe just a bad batch.

I normally prefer mild, and this is more in the middle. I'm a fan of the torpedo cut
By Larry on Sep 28, 2017
There are tons of cigars out there and after some extensive research, I treated myself to this one. That was a few years ago and I'm still treating myself. This box is accompingon my vacation.

I bought these cigars for my brother-in-law. These are his favorite smokes. I bought these based on there ratings and I wanted the best for him.
By Al on Nov 2, 2015
Oliva serie v melanio figurado is my favorite smoke. It is very creamy and leathery. These cigars are great anytime of the day and are very enjoyable. I have a few boxes on hand because these are my go to cigars knowing its a great smoke every time.
By randy on Oct 31, 2015
Very well made Figurado from Oliva.Not my favorite blend. THe taste is somewhat monolithic, rather than complex
By John on Sep 22, 2015
This cigar is excellent. Good draw, smooth and nice flavor. Order some if you can...most of the time it's out of stock.
By Randall on Sep 5, 2015
Great smoke- buttery, smooth, nutty, rich and complex flavor with a sweet finish and an even burn. Doesn't get an over-leathery nor bitter transition towards the last 1/3-- stays pretty consistent-- good stick-- grab a box because you'll want more, it's a better deal and this is th best Prichard out there with free shipping!! I thoroughly enjoy this one! Although, one stick had a pretty tight draw and it didn't seem to loosen up much until after about the first 1/3. Probably a fluke.
By Joseph on Sep 3, 2015
Smooth with full bodied taste...no after taste...good burn...pure enjoyment

I have my usual favorite smokes and never tried Oliva in the past. A friend of mine handed me an Oliva V and was quite impressed with the flavor and construction. I just ordered my first box and can't wait to light one up, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you for your questions. To answer your first question, here are a few cigars that are similar to the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figuardo's: Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Sumatra, Liga Privada T52 Toro, and Espada Guard by Montecristo. To answer your second question, the tobacco in the Melanio Figuardo's is the same no matter what size you choose. The sizes really just come down to personal preference in what you like to smoke. I hope that this has satisfactorily answered your question. Please feel free to reach out to us if you are in need of any additional assistance.
