Oliva Serie V Melanio

A reason to love handmade cigars.

Oliva Serie 'V' Melanio has arrived. The stunning follow-up to Oliva's 94-rated Serie 'V' and coveted, limited release Serie 'V' Maduro. I'll be perfectly honest with you, we had the chance to sample these lovelies fresh off the rolling table, and they were every bit as scrumptious as you could hope. My suggestion, get your Melanio cigars now before the backorders build.

Oliva Serie 'V' Melanio will have you at hello, thanks to gorgeous Ecuadorian-grown Sumatra leaf that's dark, thick, oily, and seamless in appearance. Beneath this leaf, a flavorful blend of long-leaf ligeros from Nicaragua unites, including the Oliva's oldest, most prized leaves from Condega and Esteli, along with some extra tobaccos from Jalapa for more flavor and aroma. Each Melanio is full-bodied and full-flavored, with unique nuances such as black pepper, freshly-baked bread, and unsweetened cocoa. You might also notice some toast and lightly creamed coffee. Either way, you're in for a delicious treat from one of the most celebrated cigar-making families in Nicaragua, let alone the industry.

Great news, the Serie 'V' Melanio was honored as the #1 Cigar of 2014, and most recently #8 Cigar of 2020, earning as high as a 96-point rating which noted: "has rich, big notes of leather framed by a range of coffee, caramel and woody intonations."

These Olivia Melanios are constructed
These Olivia Melanios are constructed flawlessly,they burn slow and cool with a great aroma.The flavor was a bit lacking on the first two,just power and a bit harsh.I've experienced it with Olivas before and the fix is extensive humidor time,no problem.Let them rest a few months to a year and the flavor,smoke texture,and aroma are superb.

Quality All The Way Down
Part of why this is a great cigar is not that it is exceptional at any third of the smoke, it's that it's very good or great all the way down to the nub. It's rare I find a cigar that's as pleasant at the beginning as at the end, still strong in flavor and not obnoxiously so. This is one of those few cigars -- at no point during the smoke was I amazed, but at every third I was very pleased. I plan to always have some on hand from here on out in my humidor as a result, since it will make an excellent "go-to default" for when I'm not craving something with attitude, but rather something that is classically pleasing. A must-try!

This is a powerhouse small cigar. It is a please from the first to last puff. A great draw all the way through. It burns evenly too. Yes, you will have to slow down a little so you don’t overheat. A great winter smoke. Would you expect anything else from Olivia?

Been enjoying these for many years and always a great experience. Start extremely smooth but also very tasty. But somewhere during each cigar I'm reminded that the Melanio is truly a full-bodied beast. Awesome !!! The Churchill is my favorite, but the Torpedo and Figurado are very, very good as well. Always will be some in my humidor.

A bit disappointed
These were good, but was expecting more based on other reviews. I will give it another shot in a larger size. The Robusto seemed to burn a bit too hot for me. While most cigars hit their stride about 1/3 of the way in, this one never did it for me. I'll try again with a different size, like the Double Toro.

When you do not know what you want to choose to smoke, pick this one. Small enough for a quick 15-25 minute smoke but tremendous tobacco flavor throughout the experience. Perfect ash and pull.

the kiss of this cigar is on my list
Everyone and their mother has written a positive review of these delectable beauties so in all likelihood no one will even read this, but if you are and you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and take the plunge. This is simply the best cigar at the price range I have ever smoked. I have it as an 'always buy' when a decent deal pops up and I keep my humidor topped off with about 80 of these. There are other cigars I enjoy, but this Figurado is the one I am ALWAYS in the mood for. If you do get them, get yourself a v-cutter as this cigar, like many Figurado, sometimes has draw issues with flat cuts but I have yet to have draw issues with a v cut.

Review of Oliva Serie 'V' Melanio Robusto
I recently received a pack of 10. Saving them for an upcoming trip but had to sample one. Outstanding smoothness, nutty, robust flavor. I'm a big Oliva fan and this cigar takes my appreciation to a higher level.

These never disappoint
I love the Melanio. Great cigar. And when you get it on sale,... even better. I do prefer the boxes over the packs though. When they come in packs (cellophane), I need to unwrap them, take them out of the individual cellophane, and leave them in the humidor for a couple months to off gas that little bitter taste that they have when they arrive individually wrapped in cellophane. After that,... they taste just like they arrived in a box.

Serie V Melanio
This is a cigar I come back to time and time again. It is consistently a top notch performer. Smooth and slow burning, the wrapper is a thing of beauty. A top 5 in my book,one I always keep in my humidor (the Maduro is just as good). If you haven't tried it yet, buy it now, in any size. It's just that good.

Second Best Oliva
A nice cigar; full, complex. Slightly too spicy for my palate. In my opinion, not as rewarding as the regular Serie V, which is one of my all-time faves.

Good but not for me
As some who is still exploring cigars, I picked a single up to try before committing to larger pack. This cigar has a lot of hype, but I want to say I was not too impressed. It was strong, and like other reviewers pointed out, has a bit of a harshness in the draw. In fact, I couldn't really distinguish any flavor, and I found it to be a little strong side for my tastes. Perhaps if paired with a good drink I would've had a different experience. It is a good cigar, but for the price I was expecting a little more. Just not my cup of tea.

A solid and smooth cigar
Purchased these via Make Me an Offer! Had an excellent offer accepted for a box of 10 Double Toro. The cigars arrived in very good condition. The cigars are a solid smoke overall, no major flaws or weaknesses. High quality construction and burns well, but not full bodied, more of a medium body and smooth with a light draw. Enjoyable and easy smoking.

HANDS DOWN the BEST CIGAR I have smoked to DATE!!!! While I don't find this to be a Full STRENGTH/INTENSITY stick (more of a MEDIUM to MED-FULL) it is DEFINITELY full of DELICIOUS FLAVORS: Smooth, buttery, chewy, leather, earth, a hint of sweet spice and some cinnamon. Just SMOKE ONE ALREADY!!! You won't, may, CANT be disappointed, lol!!

Always a great smoke
These cigars are far and away my favorite. They are a nice, easy smoking medium cigars that are great for sharing. For a medium body they have full flavor without the heavy body and that's what makes them so great. The box presentation is average and that's ok. I don't leave them in the box anyway. I will say they are usually somewhat dry out of the box. It's best to put them in a humidor for a month or two before smoking them if you can wait that long. They still burn great and all, the extra moisture just brings out a bit more flavor.
5 out of 5
A little bit of heaven
Anyone who is a fan of full bodied cigars owes it to themselves to try this masterpiece. It is one of the top three cigars I have ever smoked....including the coveted cubans. Go the extra mile and try this cigar. Once you do you will be hooked. I promise.
