The Oliva cigar heritage dates back well over 100 years, when Melanio Oliva cultivated his first tobacco crop in the fertile Pinar Del Rio region of Cuba in 1886. His growing operations were suspended while he fought in the Cuban War of Independence. Upon returning from the war, Melanio again took up cigar manufacturing. In the 1920’s Melanio’s son Facundo Oliva took the mantle of the cigar production, and he cultivated the Oliva family fields for many decades.

As the communists took over Cuba, the tobacco landscape changed and Facundo’s son Gilberto Oliva shifted from the growing business, to brokering tobacco. Then in the early 60’s the political pressure in Cuba became too great and Gilberto was forced to seek a country where the conditions allowed him to recreate that distinctive Cuban taste.

Gilberto finally found that fertile ground in Nicaragua, and today Gilberto along with his family are Nicaragua’s second largest grower of Cuban seed tobacco. From the same time tested methods of growing, curing, blending, and cigar rolling that built an empire, the Oliva cigar range has since earned many top industry accolades, awards and top ratings, from industry experts, publications and consumers alike. None greater than 2014 when Cigar Aficionado Magazine awarding the Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado Cigar of the Year.

      I recently had the pleasure to smoke this cigar, and enjoyed it's wonderful construction, and superb smoking characteristics. Excellent mild flavor with silky smoothness and a wonderful finish. Beautiful light gray to whitish ash and an excellent burn from start to finish.
      Perfect for a summer evening when you want a satisfying smoke but aren't looking for a heavy cigar.

      An instant favourite (First tried from the 25 Handmade Sampler.) Nice flavours throughout, good draw/burn. Mellow & mild, smooth from start to finish. You can still taste the flavours 30 mins later. Will buy again. Better than Romeo & Julietas IMHO. Only got one in the sampler (obviously) Now ordering more whilst the aftertaste is still present…then it’s gone (up in smoke…).
