Oliva Serie V Melanio Churchill box of 10
Wrapper: San Andres
Ring size: 50
Oliva Serie V Melanio Maduro received an outstanding 92-rating from Cigar Aficionado magazine in the June 2017 issue!
The 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. His grandson, Gilberto Oliva was the one to move the family tobacco enterprise out of Cuba after the Castro regime nationalized the cigar industry in the wake of the revolution. Introduced at the 2012 IPCPR, the Oliva Serie V Melanio cigar is a celebration of the founding father’s life and takes the already world famous Oliva Serie V line to a whole new level. Like all Oliva Serie V cigars, the Melanio is medium-to-full bodied however, this 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 flavors, spiced up with peppery notes, the Melanio line is complex but amazingly balanced, with a long, smooth finish. Cigar experts predict that the Oliva Serie V Melanio will become the new pace setter for the entire brand and a magnet for real cigar lovers.
