5 out of 5
Ive purchased this box several times and as long as CI stocks it, I will continue to do so. This is a smooth, even keeled smoke all the way to the nub. You'll be peeling back both wrappers so soak up every last bit of this masterpiece. It is an elegant smoke with remarkable flavor that doesn't overwhelm, but never leaves you dissatisfied. Ive travelled the world and have been able to enjoy many works of art, but the Oliva Serie V Melanio sets itself apart. Every last detail from the gorgeous wrapper to its impressive presentation has been meticulously thought through by Oliva, leaving no sense unamused. The experience begins by opening the box and removing the delicate elements securing the cigars in place, and they won't remain in place for long once you've had one. It truly is a beautiful smoke that will not disappoint.
