I have given this cigar my top smoke of the decade award. After smoking my third box it is my go-to cigar for the ultimate smoking experience. The construction is impeccable thus the draw is effortless and full. I am amazed at the consistency from this maker. The flavor is full, nutty and sweet. Complex flavor profile yet simply elegant and enjoyable on the mouth. The burn on this bad boy is a true ring from start to finish with a firm ash. I can find nothing wanting in smoking this sensual lady of a cigar. less

Excellent appearance - perhaps the nicest wrapper/construction I have ever seen. I bought a 5 pack, however, I had terrible draw with my first cigar. I couldn t get any smoke out of it until there was about only 2 inches left. To top it off, the cigar boated/canoed the entire time smoking it. I have 4 left so I m just hoping I got a bad one, but my initial experience with these is disappointing. less

This cigar is amazing. It starts off with a little bit of spice, then milds out to a very distinct nutty, flavorful, sweet taste. With a glass of sweet tea it almost taste like dark chocolate. It's perfection. Worth every penny. If there is smoke in heaven, it taste like the smoke from this cigar. less

Oliva has a reputation for great smokes, and this is no exception (my favorite from Oliva). I picked one of these up locally yesterday to give it a try (back to buy a BOX today from FS). This cigar was perfect! The pre-smoke draw was effortless and it had the most flavor of any cigar I've ever smoked (that's a lot of cigars, by the way). After light was no different. PLENTY of flavor, but smooooooooth for a full body. Asthon VSG is my usual "go to" for a decently-priced full body, but in my humble opinion, I like the Oliva Serie V Melanio even better!less
