Customer Reviews of “Oliva Serie V Melanio”
“I have to tell you, I try not to spend more than $10 a stick, but I treated myself to a Melanio and I will be buying more. All I can say is "WOW". This is a full body with incredible flavor. It starts off good, and just keeps getting better. Treat yourself to one. You deserve it.”

“One of the best Cigars I have smoked. Great cigar!”
RL of Fort Lauderdale, FL
“I bought a box of Robustos and let them sit for 35 days and decided to smoke my first one on the 4th of July. Easily one of the best cigars I have smoked. The only thing I didn't like is that it didn't last longer. I decided to fix that problem and go with a box of churchills on my next purchase;) Great taste and huge amounts of smoke with a near perfect burn and draw. You can't go wrong here.”
“I bought a box of the Serie V Melanio petite coronas about two months ago and put them away to rest until tonight. I am very impressed with this cigar. This little guy packs a lot of flavor. I notice some leather and a bright wood component as well. Burns great...nice long finish on the palate. Excellent! I'll buy more. Goes great with Makers Mark.”
“This is one delicious smoke. Start to finish, great flavors right back to the nub. Needless to say, (but I'll say it) the construction and draw were perfect. A very enjoyable cigar.”
“What a magnificent cigar! I've had a box of robustos resting for about 6 months and just finished my first. All I can say is WOW! This cigar really reminded me of a Cuban Cohiba Robusto. It's got that subtle sweet, smooth, musky essence that I've only found in high dollar Cohibas with just a hint of spice. I've been smoking for 30 years and this is one of the best. I've got a couple boxes of Master blends 3 and this cigar blows them away. A great value.”
“Having smoked hundreds of brands, this one (Churchill) is still an attention-getter. I have tried and loved all things Oliva but this one beats them all. This is one of the few that I have to smoke on a fortified stomach and/or sitting down.”
“I bought 5 last summer from a local shop. Smoked one right away, and although I enjoyed it very much, it was rather dry and under-whelming (this shop's humidor is always regulated at too low a humidity for my liking). Let the other 4 sit for the past 6 months at 72%. I pulled one out yesterday and all I have to say is WOW!. The cigar was simply amazing from start to finish. The texture, moisture content, burn and draw was perfect. The flavors were complex and deeply satisfying to my palate. I will be buying more very soon. These will always have a place in my humidor.”

“This is my go to cigar for right now. Not as pricey as a Padron 1926 Anniversary, but the flavor is the closest copy I have ever found. They need to rest though. Every single Melanio I have smoked at the cigar shop has been a pleasant experience, but the flavors are muted. This is not a budget stick, but compared to Padron prices it certainly is a bargain.”
“My first stick in the morning and my last at night. Always consistent from box to box.”
“I purchased a box of Oliva Serie V Melanio last Oct. They been sitting in my cabinet since then. Tonight I grabbed one and went down to a cigar lounge I frequent, I was more then impressed with this cigar. It was one of the best cigars I have ever smoked. Big thick creamy smoke with a very light coffee tone to it, with a very easy pepper just enough to give it some spice. Construction was A-PLUS. The burn was perfect right to the end. I have smoked some expensive cigars that don't even come close to what the Oliva Serie V Melanio has to offer. My suggestion is if you have the extra ching around pick up a box and put them in your humidor for afew months. You will not be disappointed. I give the Oliva Serie V Melanio a 95 rating.”

“fantastic smoke. not a cheap smoke, but one of the best values for a top shelf stick. if you like padron '64 then you really need to try this. killa stick.”
“.... Absolute HEAVEN!!!!! I mean the padron was,,,,ok,, but for that price- GEEEE!, does anybody out there know what a top 5 star cigar is?, or do we just hand out 5 stars left and right?? This Oliva V is like my benchmark! As other have posted, the cigar is just amazing, creamy hints of EVERYTHING, sooooo smooth. Burn-excellent, smoke- you just don't want any of it to leave the room, aroma like nothing else- will just bring sweet tears to your eyes. But to put this into perspective; here are some of my 5 stars for comparison,,,,,,La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor (awesome!), Flor de las Antillas (it's like smoking velvet!), My Father No.1(only on sale) ,,, 4 stars (some)-Nica rustica (just nothing like it), Torano Exodus 1959 or Master, Perdomo 20th anniversary/ or the Champagne NIOR(incredible flavors, have got to try!!), Alec Bradley Presando,Alec Bradly Tempus, , just to name some for the point....”
