The stunning follow-up to Oliva Serie ‘V’, the Oliva Serie ‘V’ Melanio is finally here. These cigars are gifted with subtle nuances such as black pepper, freshly-baked bread and even, pure, unsweetened cocoa. You might also sense flavors of toasted and lightly creamed coffee, if you pay close attention to their creamy texture. They are packed with Oliva’s oldest and most prized leaves from Condega and Esteli. The cigars are created with carefully-aged tobaccos from Jalapa, which produces a particularly flavored smoke. What further enhances the flavor of these full-bodied and smooth cigars is the Ecuadorian-grown Sumatra leaf wrapper that provides just the right amount of dark, thick, oily and ensures that the cigars are seamless in appearance.
Named after Melanio Oliva, to honor her as the first member of the Oliva Cigar Company to grow tobacco, these cigars are everything you’d expect from the best cigar making family in Nicaragua. The Melanio marks the first time Oliva has used this coveted wrapper on one of their cigars, with spectacular results. With their box-pressed edges and perfect combustion, they are sure to exceed the premium cigar smoker’s highest expectations. The Oliva Serie V Melanio has rich notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. The ultra-smooth, classic smoke offered by these stogies is meant for every cigar aficionado. These hand-made cigars are limited edition and are available in six shapes, Churchill, Corona, Gordo, Perfecto, Robusto and Torpedo.
