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!
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.1 1
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.0 0
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.2 0
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. 90+ points1 0
