Voted Cigar Aficionado #3 Cigar of 2017! 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 Robusto brings you strong and savory character in a perfectly balanced, box-pressed 5x52 Robusto vitola.

Oliva is a very consistant line of cigars that I favor whenever they go on sale. The "V" line is a little stronger than the "O" line, but I like both.
By james on Nov 8, 2022
This is a great smoke, well constructed, great flavor and just enjoyable.
By Timothy on Sep 8, 2022
I find the OLIVA Melano to be well worth the cost. In addition, consistent across numerous purchases.

A delicious blend of uber fine tobacco, delivering a a lush heady mix of spice, coffee, toast with a fabulous chewy mouthfeel. Construction is nearly flawless, burning slow and straight from beginning to end. A true connoisseurs delight, or a perfect step-up for the less experience smoker. Highly recommended!
By John on Dec 28, 2021

The Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto
is yet another BCP quality offering. It is a good looking, richly wrapped cigar, and it’s box cut feels good to hold in your hand.It lights, burns and draws beautifully, full of smooth taste, pleasing to most palates and very satisfying to a sophisticated one.
That said, the value is excellent.keep up the good work!

By Carl on Jul 9, 2020
A little stick that delivers a smooth, full & delectable smoke!
By Fr. on Jul 7, 2020
Very deserving of its high rating. Bold but smooth flavor and very even smoke. Robustos are my favorite style of cigars, and this one may be my favorite non-Cuban Robusto on the market.
By Christopher on Jun 16, 2020
The Melanio is my go to stick and my humidor is never without them. I’ve been smoking these since 2015 and can honestly say I’ve never had a bad one. Very consistent in terms of the burn, easy draw and construction. One of the best tasting cigars I’ve ever smoked.

The Oliva Serie V Melanio is the best cigar I’ve ever had. I make sure to always have a few boxes in my humidor. Full flavor without being overpowering. Smooth and delicious! Razor sharp burn, ample amount of smoke output and I never have to touch it up. You can’t go wrong with this smoke.
By chris on Apr 28, 2020

By Tom on Oct 29, 2019
When i see the right price I get boxes of these. It is full bodied so not for everyone. My buddies who want a mild cigar do not like these. However, for someone who wants to taste full flavors, they are solid.

The Melania Robusto is not for the novice smoker. Although it has an earthy taste it is full bodied.
By Joseph on May 15, 2018
I always have a god supply of the V Robusto in my box. It is a good smoke from beginning to end. Enjoy!

love it great value
By eric on Apr 15, 2017
Love the Os , so I had to try the Vs. This is a full flavored cigar, need to relax and smoke to enjoy. Compares to any top of line cigar w/flavor evenly in whole stick. I am skipping trying the Gs, for a while,but the Oliva line is by far one of the best
By Dominic on Mar 21, 2017
By Stefan on Mar 7, 2017
I love this cigar! The two box deal brings the price down to a price point that makes it an "everyday" cigar. Nice robust flavor, and smooth spice. Absolute favorite cigar
By Michael on Nov 4, 2015
The draw was good. They were fresh. Just the right spiciness.
By Angela on May 3, 2015
The Melanio in Robusto size is my favorite cigar. Medium bodied with just the right amount of flavor and deep spice. Great value in this size cigar, and offers just the right amount of burn time.
By Michael on Apr 16, 2015
Amazing cigar! Love the box pressed shape.
By Gary on Feb 5, 2015
This is truly an outstanding cigar in every category. It reminds me a lot of the Padron 1926, but it's considerably more affordable. I have tried several sizes of this cigar; I find that the Robusto is the one that gives me the most "bang for my buck." I always keep a couple extra boxes around in addition to the sticks in my humidor so that I will never run out. It's not quite inexpensive enough to be an "everyday cigar" for me, but on my budget it's a "three-days-a-week cigar." If you're a fan of Padron 1926's try one of these.
By Thomas on Dec 28, 2014
This cigar is a top notch stick with a beautiful look and feel. It eclipses much more expensive cigars in taste and quality. The creamy smoke along with a peppery "kick" make this my favorite after dinner smoke. Goes great with a bold coffee and is a fantastic value. I have tried hundreds of cigars but this is my favorite.
By Greg on Jun 5, 2014
*Love the box press, slightly rounded edges and nice feel.
*Smooth full body taste, with a hint of sweet notes.
*Price is steep, however always a good deal from BCP! Worth it, smoke her slow and enjoy the richness =)
*One of my favorite stick to start off my Golf round, I typically follow with a larger stick in a medium/mild flavor....Tried an AVO #2 and loved it!! <-----read review.
By Roger on Sep 11, 2013
As long as the cigars are in a humidor, you may keep them in the original package until you're ready to smoke. If you prefer you may also remove them from the package and store them in your humidor.
