To no one’s surprise, the Oliva Cigar Company has done it again! The company’s Oliva Serie V has received an excellent ‘92’ rating in the October 2017 issue of Cigar Aficionado and was previously on the magazine’s “Top 25” list in 2011.
Impeccably crafted, the Oliva Serie V is comprised of long filler tobaccos blended with fermented ligero from Jalapa Valley with an oily, dark chocolate Nicaraguan Habano sun grown wrapper. The full body taste remains incredibly complex and smooth throughout.
The Serie V starts with an intense peppery flavor then notes of spice, coffee and dark chocolate grace the palate. The thick smoke is sweet and savory. The 5 x 54 Double Robusto is wickedly spicy, yet exceptionally smooth, rich and oily making it so you cannot resist this masterpiece.
The Oliva Serie V Double Robusto is a top shelf cigar and would make an impressive addition to your humidor.
Proper storage in a humidor is essential to preserve the natural oils in the wrapper. Cigars should be stored without the cellophane wrapper. Your humidor should maintain suitable humidity levels of 70% or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The air conditions outside the humidor should also be considered. Heat and air conditioning can affect the humidity in the humidor.
Depending on the thickness of the wrapper, aging cigars should be kept at 70%-79% humidity . The thicker the wrapper the higher the humidity level should be. After the desired age, the cigar should be brought down to 70% before smoking.
The Oliva Cigar Company recommends the proper aging process:
