The Oliva Serie V cigar is an exquisite complex blend of Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos, wrapped in a silky smooth Habano Sun Grown wrapper glistening with oils. The filler is a specially fermented Jalapa Valley ligero. An enchanting Nicaraguan puro, the blend delivers a full bodied, rich flavor offering layers of coffee, spice and tobacco flavor. The finish leaves a touch of dark, unsweetened chocolate, rich in flavor and maintaining an unparallel smoothness rarely seen in such a blend. Perfect for after dinner, the Serie V is an amazing smoke!
The new Oliva Serie V Melanio line was created in tribute to the founding father of the Oliva tobacco empire, Don Melanio Oliva, who started growing tobacco in Cuba about 150 years ago.
The Oliva Serie V Melanio line features an Ecuadorian Sumatra seed wrapper not seen on an Oliva cigar since the Masterblends II line and utilizes a Nicaraguan binder and all Nicaraguan filler blend. With sweet cocoa, nutty flavours, spiced up with peppery notes, the Melanio line is complex but amazingly balanced, with a long, smooth finish.
