Oliva Serie V Melanio

Robusto/ 5 × 52

One of the top-of-the-line offerings from Oliva, the Serie V Melanio is an award-winning super-premium brand, but is it worth the hype? You bet! This cigar is covered with a stunning Ecuador Sumatra wrapper that is dark brown in color with a clay-red tint. This stick smells awesome on the prelight as the aged tobaccos impart a sweet cedar bouquet. The draw is nothing less than perfect, and the construction is flawless. Flavor-wise, Melanio has a deep, woodsy core with secondary notes of leather, coffee, caramel, and toast. The cigar remained medium to full in body all the way through, and near the finish line, the smoke turned sweet. Finding these scrumptious ultra-premium cigars can be a hassle, as they always seem to be in short supply, so I highly recommend that you grab them any time you see them in stock.

This cigar will not disappoint! If you want a cigar that can compete with the best, this is it! The flavors notes are very complex, long lasting, and satisfying to even the seasoned cigar smoker! The burn was perfect, the draw was perfect, and the beautiful box-press and smooth velvety wrapper led this cigar to being classy AND ergonomic, while satisfying to the very last draw! You will understand why this cigar won cigar of the year and has numerous top-10 placements in Cigar Aficionado's top 25! A must try!

Smoking this cigar just once will make it obvious why it has so many accolades. A truly dessert-like cigar, with subtle spice, chocolate, coffee, and the ever present aged tobacco smoothness. It's hard to beat this consistently delicious cigar. Bow worthy without a doubt.

My favorite so far. A lot of flavor without being overly strong which makes it very approachable even for the less experienced smoker.

One of my favorite go-to cigars. They are smooth as can be and have that typical Oliva flavor that you recognize easily if you are a fan of the brand. I have tried several sizes but the Robusto is by far the best for the price. They also benefit from a few weeks or even months in a humidor, further smoothing out the flavor that's already fantastic out of the box. Even my wife will take a few puffs out of this one, we call them chocolate sticks. Take it with a nice cup of espresso and you have a match that is made in heaven. Absolutely a must buy stick!

Great cigar! Exceptional burn and complex, full-bodied flavor profile. Definitely one to keep in stock in the humidor.
