Oliva Serie V Melanio Cigars comes off the heels of the success of the regular, Oliva Serie V Cigars. The cigar is named in honor of Melanio Oliva, who was the first patriarch of the Oliva family to grow tobacco in Cuba. The Serie V Melanio uses an Ecuadorian-grown, Sumatra wrapper that sits flawlessly atop a recipe of well-aged Nicaraguan tobacco. The result is a full-bodied powerhouse of flavors like coffee, cedar, black pepper, and earth. All these flavors are perfectly balanced which lends to the fine quality of this cigar. All this and it comes backed by one of the most respected names in the cigar industry.
