Made by a small group of rollers and blended for strength and style, the Serie V line was an immediate hit. In 2012, to pay tribute to the first man in the family to grow cigar tobacco, Oliva added the Melanio version, which is distinguished from the original by its Sumatra-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. The Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations. It's a classic smoke. Oliva's cigars have appeared on Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 list nine times in a row.
Serie V Melanio is hand rolled using expertly fermented ligero fillers, leaves known for their robust and rich flavour. This special cigar is sure to exceed a premium cigar smoker's highest expectation. This carefully aged Jalapa blend produces a particularly flavoured smoke.
