Nicaraguan tobacco products have become increasingly popular with cigar aficionados. The son of tobacco farmer Melanio Oliva, Gilberto and his son started the Oliva Cigar Company in Estelí, Nicaragua in 1995. Since 2006, the Oliva Cigar Company has produced the award winning Oliva Serie V. The Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado was named the number one Cigar of the year in 2014 by Cigar Aficionado Magazine. Today, the Oliva family still runs the Nicaragua tobacco operations, and has a central office in Miami Lakes, Florida.
Made from an Ecuadoran Sumatra seed wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and long filler, the dark blend delivers a full bodied taste with exceptional smoothness. The ligero from the Jalapa valley produces a sumptuous and rich smoke. Complex and balanced in nature, Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado has notes of coffee, caramel and dark chocolate. The earthy spiciness lingers throughout the smoke.
This mighty figurado can be paired with a strong dark stout such as Guinness Foreign Extra. The creamy stout with flavors of oats and toasted barley packs a punch along with the dizzying buzz of the Serie V Melanio.
Make your friends and family jealous on the golf course and carry the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado in your one- finger leather case. You will not want to share this cigar with anyone.
