Oliva Serie V Melanio 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. 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 Oliva Serie V Melanio Gran Reserva Limitada Torpedo in your humidor next time you grab a cigar.
