Voted #1 Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 cigars of 2014!
Named for the founding father of Oliva Cigars, the box-pressed 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.

very good consistent smoke

By Victor on Feb 24, 2020

High V for O

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"!

Moving up quickly on my list of favorites

By Richard on Oct 10, 2019

Get a box now!

I've been smoking the Serie V Melanio for 10-12 years. I'd have to say, excluding much higher priced cigars, these are my very favorites. Always well constructed, never had a 'bad' burn, great smoke all the way through. And, the Figurado is always a nice reward. You can't go wrong with these!

By Andy on Sep 12, 2019

Beaututiful Cigar!

Wonderfully packaged, always properly humidified, exquisite taste right out of the box!

Best Cigars Always Delivers

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!!!

Run to Order Not Walk

I once only smoked Cuban cigars, but got tired of the issue of ordering them and then worrying about receiving them legally here in the US. Then my best friend introduced me to the Oliva Serie’s V Melanio cigars. I feel in love with them and now only smoke the Figuarados. They are smooth, flavorful, and the best. Don’t go to Cuba, just stay here in the States and enjoy these beauties without worry.

This one is my favorite

Great smoke with my favorite bourbon, Angels Envy

By Nicholas on Oct 24, 2017


Good product

By Bob on Oct 21, 2017

Great smoke

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.

By Justin on Oct 17, 2017

Good Cigar

I normally prefer mild, and this is more in the middle. I'm a fan of the torpedo cut

a wee bit of heaven

the title says it all I'm in love with these cigars

By Allen on Apr 11, 2017

Big Smoothie

I wanted to try this stick because my buddy told me it was so "sweet", it was the only cigar his wife didn't mind the smell of.
This cigar did not disappoint. It is very smooth, creamy, and "cocoa-y" - not much pepper, but full and bold at the same time. My only problem with it is the fact that it's a box press. I guess you either love or hate a box pressed cigar, and I lean towards the latter. If you like box press, or don't mind it, I highly recommend this one because of the flavor, construction, and overall quality.

Gift for brother-in-law

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..WOW

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

Excellent cigar!

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

Love it!

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.

Above average.

By Robert on Apr 2, 2015

First Time was a charm!

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!
