The Nicaraguan cigar company Tabacalera Oliva Tabolisa, or the Oliva Cigar Company, as it is known in the United States, can trace its roots back to Melanio Oliva. In 1886 Melanio began his tobacco production in Pinar del Rio, Cuba. This tradition in the Cuban style continues today, as the company produces affordable cigars without sacrificing quality. The Oliva Serie V Melanio is a prime example. Melanio Oliva would be proud of his namesake cigar.
In 2006 the Oliva Cigar Company introduced their award winning line the Serie V Melanio. The outstanding reviews from critics and cigar aficionados ensure the online buyer a perfect smoke. One of the top 25 cigars in 2016, the Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto never disappoints.
The hand rolled Serie V Melanio Robusto employs fermented Nicaraguan-Habano ligero fillers from the Jalapa Valley and Sumatra-seed wrappers from Ecuador. More nuanced, the Nicaraguan Habano creates a super smooth smoke with an intense full bodied flavor. The rare combination produces a cigar that is well balanced. The Serie V Melanio burns slowly and consistently every time.
The Serie V Melanio Robusto emits flavors of cedar, leather and toast. One will discover undertones of buttery caramel and coffee.
The perfect pairing with your Serie V Melanio Robusto should be a trendy rye whiskey. Bulleit and Booker’s make excellent versions with notes of spice, licorice and cedar to compliment your cigar experience.
On your annual Father’s Day fishing trip share your reserve of Serie V Melanio with your dad. He would be proud.
