The Oliva Serie V cigar took the industry by storm in late 2007. After receiving a 94 rating in the December, 2007 issue of Cigar Aficionado, as well as being named one of the Best Cigars of the year, the Oliva Serie V has gained quite a reputation among discerning cigar smokers.
The Oliva Serie V is a full bodied cigar that is very complex, but maintains a smoothness not found in many cigars of the V’s caliber. Using a Habano Sun Grown wrapper, as well as a Nicaraguan binder and a specially fermented Jalapa Valley Ligero filler, the Oliva Serie V maintains a balance that is unparalleled. The Oliva Serie V has hints of spice, as well as coffee and dark chocolate.
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. This amazing blend was rated an astounding 96 from Cigar Aficionado, and was voted #1 on Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 cigars of 2014!
