Oliva Melanio CI 20th Anniversary

My favorite birthday present.

CI's 20th birthday is upon us, and to celebrate, our friends at Oliva crafted a special edition size of their #1 Cigar of the Year Serie V Melanio to ring in year number 21. This highly-decorated morsel doesn’t need much building up, but for those not versed in its scrumptious prowess, here’s a quick overview.

Heralded by Cigar Aficionado and countless other blogging and cigar review outlets, Melanio reigns supreme with stop-on construction, perfect draws, and flavor that keeps you coming back for more. Enticing notes of baked bread, black pepper, and cocoa swamp the taste buds and truly awaken the senses. Now available only at Cigars International in the uber-popular 6”x50 toro size, these fan favorites are sure to run out of here quicker than Usain Bolt in the 100 meter dash.

Not a bad cigar but not as good as I expected
For me these cigars start out good with some spice and nutty flavor on the first third then it’s down hill from there, I really like Oliva cigars but this one is not for me, will be giving out the rest of this box to friends hope they like them!!

As close to perfect as possible
Honestly as close to the perfect cigar as possible. Perfect flavor profile with the perfect mix of spice, pepper and earthy tones you can hope to find. Burn, ash, construction arell spot on. 99 rated for a reason

The Melanio is the best cigar I have ever smoked. I originally bought a 10 pack, after smoking the first cigar I immediately bought 60 more. Absolutely perfect in every way. Will be my go to cigar from now until they quit making this amazing stogie.

If God Made Cigars
I agree with the other review....this cigar is by far my favorite, nothing compares to it. Ive been smoking cigars for years and it has come to a point in my life that the only cigar I reach for now is this one. Now I've been waiting for that censation to die down and tell myself, "im in the mood for something else," but that has yet to happen....I have literally been smoking melanios for 4 straight months now, its the only cigar I want out of my humidor everytime I open it, and I have hundreds to choose from because of collecting over the years and I gotta say... I ALWAYS have at least 20 to 30 melanios in my rotation now, I could care less what else is in there, unless it's a Padron of course. But for the money, the melanios, theyre hard to beat. Sorry for the literary drool but I had to get that off my chest and just let someone, anyone, know just how much I love these cigars. If GOD made cigars, these would be the ones.

Spectacular cigar!!
If you don't stop what you're doing and buy this cigar right now you're insane. Unbelievably smooth and tasty from beginning to end. Flavor was perfect right from the start. Even though it says it's full body, it's not overpowering and is smooth and silky. Great construction and perfect draw with a perfect ash. I didn't want to put it down to smoked it until my fingernails burned.
