Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto

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 EstelĂ­ 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!

Magnificent!

What a great cigar. Very similar to Cuban Cohiba robusto, smooth leather, hint of spice, with that subtle, sweet, musk essence I ve only tasted in the high dollar Cohibas. You ll be hard pressed to find a better cigar at any price. A masterpiece!

Good tobacco but..
by Stefan in City by the Bay on February 26, 2014

...it s really more of a medium than a full cigar. After two months at about 69% RH this got hard -- almost as hard as the Master Blends 3 I recently got from Famous, but less tightly packed. Strong Ligero during the first third, and then the wood flavor finally kicked in on the second third. Overall, I found this to have more nicotine and less flavor than the MB3, which I prefer. Much less floral notes if at all than two months ago. 98 points for the construction + 89 for the flavor = 90 points final score. At the end of the night, I found myself wanting more body, so I lid up a Padilla La Reserva.

Strong, medium-full Ligero
by Stefan in on January 06, 2014
Verified purchase

One month later, and after having spent the last week at 55% RH, this aged tobacco stick still tastes green, with the nicotine from the Ligero overwhelming any flavors during the first third, after which flavors of toasted almonds and walnuts emerged, and then sandalwood around the middle. The smoke isn t drying, but the nicotine demands water. Felt a little wet , and draw was a tad tighter than preferred. Almost went out on me twice in the beginning, and then finally on the second half -- surprising given that it s loosely packed. Turns bitter at the nub. Need to wait another 3 months before trying again, and maybe dry box at 50% for two weeks. Best enjoyed on a clean palate. Burns fast, but very cleanly, and I love the shape and size.

Jury Still Out
by Cristo in Ohio on October 02, 2012

I anxiously awaited this release as the V is one of my favorites. Although construction and burn were on par for Oliva, the flavor was not what I expected. It seemed unduly peppery the whole way through, and the chocolate overtones were weak. I wanted the first run as that usually is the most refined, but I think these need some time in the vault. They have potential, but I will let them sit a year and visit again.
