The Oliva family of cigars may be one of the most popular brands of premium cigars in the US, but one of their blends truly stands apart from the rest of their portfolio; the Oliva Serie V Melanio. The name Melanio pays tribute to the first Oliva family member to grow tobacco. As such, the Melanio features only the finest, well-aged, and most coveted tobacco in Oliva’s arsenal. These cigars are regular production but released in small quantities to ensure that each Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro meets the exacting standards of the family’s crowning achievement.

While Oliva cigars have been included in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list nine times in a row, the Oliva Serie V Melanio is the first cigar to take home their coveted Cigar of the Year. Made by a small group of Oliva’s best rollers, the Melanio starts with a special blend of tobaccos from Condega, Esteli, and Jalapa in Nicaragua for its filler and binder core. Topping off this blend is a unique Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. This box-pressed masterpiece is sure to satisfy the most discerning cigar lover. It features bold but balanced flavors of coffee, caramel, and leather with notes of cedar and cream. This may be the finest cigar in the Oliva portfolio!
