These award winning 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 top rated luxurious cigars are sure to exceed your highest expectations. Order a box now or start with a 5-pack!

Easy draw great cigar from lighting to finish.
Melanio V s are very tough to beat when compared to similarly priced cigars, especially when you get them on sale. Well deserving of their rating, excellent construction and consistent flavor. You can find them almost everywhere and have confidence when you light them that you ll have an enjoyable experience.
An absolute pleasure to smoke, from beginning to end. Flavorful! Great aroma front and back, to boot! My favorite cigar!
I get dark chocolate and cedary wood notes to start turning to a more cocoa powder and leather. Excellent draw till the end.
From Olive just Melanio.The best, my top 5, But don t buy maduro
As a big fan of Oliva Serie V Melanio in churchill, I gave this a shot and bought a full box. Itn actually nudges out the churchill as my favorite vitola in this great cigar. The transitions start early as the burn widens, but honestly, every puff could bring something new to your palette. Great burn, great smoke output.
One of the best I ve had.
They are as good as people say they are. Ive found some 90 rated cigars to be over hyped but not this one. I purchased a box when they were on sale for around $6.88 a stick so it was great value for the level of perfection you get. This is in my top 5 favorite cigars of all time now BUT Im a huge fan of Nicaraguan tobacco so a little bias towards blends like this. The Lancero is great as well but with this blend I recommend the larger ring gauges as I believe the magic is in the filler more than the wrapper. If you like smooth medium-full bodied creamy cigars that have a nice chocolate note and some sweet cedar and pepper through the nose look no further. Yummy. Those who love cigars will smoke this one to the nub every stick and want another. My plan was to buy 10, smoke a few and leave the rest in the humidor for bad days. I gave one to a friend and smoked the other 9 in 1 week. ==?B
