A product 6 years in the making, the Oliva Serie V Melanio was made in tribute to the partiarch of the Oliva family, Melanio Oliva. Using the oldest tobacco's in the Oliva portfolio, the Melanio provides a medium bodied, full flavored smoking experience.
Using an aged Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers, the Oliva Serie V Melanio is a treat for any smoker. The reddish-brown wrapper brings a load of flavor to your palate, delivering floral notes over an earthy component. You will also be treated to a slight spice, something the compliments the sweetness very well, making for a delicious combination of flavors. While not as strong as the original Serie V, this is still a medium-full bodied smoke sure to delight even the most discerning palate. The depth of flavors on this silky smoke are sure to provide a lasting memory that Melanio Oliva would be proud of.
Oliva Serie V Melanio has earned ratings as high as 96 points and was event named Cigar Aficionado's Cigar Of The Year 2014!
