Oliva V Melanio Double Toro
Oliva Serie V Melanio cigars are named for Melanio Oliva, believed to be the first Oliva patriarch to grow tobacco in Cuba. The perfectly fermented ligero long filler tobaccos are a blend of Oliva Nicaraguan Habano that emphasizes tobacco from the Jalapa region, an area known for a more nuanced leaf than the Estelí or Condega regions. Full flavored, yet ultra-smooth, these luxurious, award-winning cigars are sure to exceed your highest expectations. Order a box now or start with a 5-pack!
I normally don t smoke cigars beyond a ring gauge beyond 56 this was my only option to try the Oliva V Melanio. Definitely hit the spot in the satisfied department. Plenty of smoke output with hints of coco and creme. I really enjoyed this smoke and for once I agree with Cigar Aficionado giving this cigar the number one rating which normally I disagree with . Definitely worth picking up and better than other overrated cigars such as the Opus X.
Like so many, I thought I would give these a try. The Figurardo is on back order so I decided to try this version. All I can say is I just ordered two boxes! If the Figurados are as good as these, I will have to make serious room in my humidors. I absolutely love Padron 1926s but these are outstanding in every way. Incredible.
