Oliva Serie V Melanio

Oliva Serie V Melanio is a medium to full-bodied box-pressed blend with aged Jalapa Nicaraguan tobaccos. The natural version features a seamless, medium-brown Ecuador Sumatra wrapper, while the Maduro version features a spicy Mexico San Andres wrapper. The fermented Nicaraguan Ligero combines perfectly with the wrappers to deliver rich flavors of leather and cedar with hints of nuts.

Oliva Serie V Melanio Natural and Maduro cigars are known to be made with exceptional Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos. Founder Melanio Oliva first grew his world-renowned full flavor tobaccos in Pinar Del Rio, Cuba, back in 1886. Additionally, three generations and two revolutions later, Melanio's grandson Gilberto found a new place to call home in Nicaragua's fertile lands. Today Gilberto, along with his family, are one of Nicaragua's largest growers of Cuban-seed tobac­co. They continue to use the same time-tested curing, blending, and rolling methods that built an empire. Further, the famous Tabacalera Oliva in Esteli, Nicaragua handcrafts the Oliva Series V Melanio cigars. In fact, they are the makers of world-renowned brands such as the short and stout Nub and the carefully crafted Cain. You'll be undeniably happy to see some of these in your humidor next time you grab a cigar.
