After a month at about 69% RH and 69° F this exhibited an excellent draw through a bullet hole, and a solid burnline. Full in terms of strength, but mild-to-medium flavor-wise, showing mostly hints of wood that paired alright with an Amontillado sherry. Burned for about 40 minutes.
I do prefer the flavor profile of the Robusto without doubt.

Interestingly this was a wee different than the 5x52. Better build, and thus with a longer lasting burn. Showing more focused flavors as well: woodsy during the first third, more floral during the second. Nutty aftertaste. Burned for about 50 minutes. Outstanding overall, but I missed the airy floral aromatics of the Robusto. Now I m curious about the Figurado...

"Worst cigar I have ever had"
I was looking forward to these having had other Oliva Cigars. This is the worst cigar I Have ever had. Dry, bland, and one dimensional. I hope that it was a dud and the other 9 will be ok. Great packaging, there was even a hydration pack in the box between two wood layers. Shame the cigar wasn t so good. Such a letdown after having cain nubs, and the other nubs. no creaminess, such a shame, hope a few months in the humidor and they maybe will come right.

"Thank you may I have another!?"
This stick was incredible! Extremely tasty. Every two or three draws the complexity kept coming and flavors kept changing. Perfect draw and burn with an intoxicating aroma. My only regret is that I wish it didn't have to end.

Great cigar, I consider this a far better smoke than the Oliva G. The G is a great smoke but this V Melanio is even better hands down. Only down fall to this cigar is the limited run.

Really good full body cigar. Lots of coco and spice with a earthy hint that is light. Another great on by oliva I picked up on the recommendation of local shop owner. Deffinitely recommend it if you like a full body after dinner stick.
