Ecuadorian-grown Sumatra leaf Oliva Serie V Melanio cigar, has dark, thick, oily, and seamless in appearance. Underneath this leaf, a rich blend of Nicaraguan long-leaf ligeros comes together, incorporating some extra Jalapa tobaccos for enhanced taste and aroma, as well as the Oliva’s oldest, most treasured leaves from Condega and Esteli. Each Oliva Serie V Melanio is robust and flavorful, with distinctive undertones like unsweetened chocolate, black pepper, and freshly made bread. Toast and coffee with a light cream may also be included. In either case, you’re in for a delectable treat from one of the most illustrious families in Nicaragua and the cigar business as a whole. Flavors of leather, wood, warm buttery toast and coffee notes.
The Serie V Melanio received a 96-point rating, “has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel, and woody intonations.” It was recognized as the best cigar of 2014.
