"A handmade cigar is a rebellion against frenzy and insanity; it means supporting contemplation over rash impulse, and represents a civilized revolution." Steve Worthington
Pinar del Rio, Cuba is known to be the “Mecca of Tobacco”. With rich soil and open land, Pinar del Rio was the perfect location for farmers to set up tobacco plantations. By the mid-1800s, as the region prospered, the local tobacco was discovered by Europeans furthering the region to flourish.
In 1886, Melanio Oliva began his tobacco growing business in Pinar del Rio setting the stage for his family’s Oliva Cigar Company. Following the Cuban Rebellion in 1959, Melanio’s grandson moved the family to Spain and finally settled in Nicaragua to resume the tobacco growing business. Today Oliva continues to produce hand rolled cigars in the Cuban tradition at their Estelí, Nicaragua factory.
The Oliva Serie O cigars are a medium to full bodied, Nicaraguan Puro. They are made in the original Cuban style by growing the same Habano seed in different regions of Nicaragua. The Oliva Serie O is a distinct blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos gown in Estelí, Condega and Jalapa Valley with a sun grown Habano wrapper. The wrapper is medium to dark brown and oily. The Oliva Cigar Company recommends aging at 70-78% humidity levels.
The Serie O Nicaraguan Habano starts with notes of cedar, light coffee and bits of spice with touches of caramel. The finish has a peppery leather flavor.
