Delicious

on 04/13/15

Delicious strong and consistent smoke! These lead with a leathery sweetness and major strength. This leads to intense white pepper smoke, and the signature Nicaraguan flavor.

Good shit.

Prems28 on 05/08/15

This Cigar is an amazing blend of excellent tobacco leaves. The wow factor in this cigar starts with the packaging and then the smell of it. When' u light this cigar and smoke it its ought to give u a flavor of dark woods.

Love this cigar!

TommyB on 03/01/15

I love this cigar. Billows of smoke from the get go. Well constructed, consistent from start to finish and from cigar to cigar. Easy lighting and even burning. Stays lit. Love the flavors, although I would consider it more of medium or medium to full bodied smoke than full bodied as indicated. This has become my new favorite. For context, some of my other favs include... Punch Rothschild EMS, My Father Flor de las Antillas Belicoso EMS, La Aroma de Cuba Robusto or Belicoso EMS, and the Edgar Hoill OSOK Travieso EMS (the one w/ the shaggy foot)

Worthy of Smoking

From an enthusiast

on 04/13/15

I have always been an Olivia fan, and this cigar seems to reinforce my feelings about them. The cigar has an excellent draw to it , and a nice build as well might I add. This cigar I also find to be mild. In all this is a very enjoyable cigar!

Serie V

on 04/14/15

The Serie V is a power house with a hint of cedar and coffee. Like most Nicaraguans it will be full flavored and full bodied. Lancero is the best vitola for this stick, most sticks actually.

This is well worth smoking!

on 04/15/15

The Oliva Melanio is a fantastic smoke that is more refined than its V series counterparts. It has a lot of sweet tobacco flavors, a ton of creaminess, a silky smooth smoke texture, and an underlying bit of nuttiness.

on 04/15/15

Very toothy Nicaraguan wrapper, reminiscent of a Padron or Jericho Hill. The smoke wasnt bad but I can find a better bang for my buck all over. It had a decent chocolaty taste, no construction issues I would blame on the cigar. It may do well with some age

Oliva Melanio

seagar83 on 06/15/15

Creamy smoke with notes of coffee bean, leather, chocolate and a little bit of spice. First third opens up with spice and chocolate. Draw is nice and the burn is consistant. Upon the second third the smoke starts to give notes of leather and earth. Burn is still even and never touched it up with the lighter yet. Final third the smoke was getting a little hot from the draw, but never got bitter and burned flawless until the very end. Would smoke again for sure !

Oliva Serie V Melanio - Robusto on 04/24/15

This is an excellent product. This cigar is a treat from the first draw to the last. I first experienced the Melanio brand with a Double toro which was the best cigar I had in many years. The robusto is very good but I prefer the double toro. You can't go wrong with any of the Melanio shapes... Construction, draw flavor - this cigar line has it all.

This cigar is a Caramel bomb! Lots of dark chocolate or cocoa coming and going, with just the right amount of red pepper. Not a traditional combination, but it's smooth across the palate and creamy on the back of the tongue. Pairs well with sweet or smoky beverages

It's not bad

JARRELS92 on 06/18/15

I just prefer a darker smoke. It's pretty smooth. I'd buy another if I had a choose on a mild smoke. There at a decent price as well for the way they are made. Plus I'm still young and began with the sugar tipped acids. maybe the older I get the better I can take the flavors more serious. If any body has a opinion on how I should start with other brands please let me know. I'm very curious and willing to try new cigars. But overall I prefer a tobacco pipe with a woodsy taste on a nice cold day.

Great cigar!

Smittyz on 06/08/15

The Melanio robusto is an excellent cigar. Just opening the box to see ten of these beauties sets the stage for what you're about to enjoy. The wrapper is flawless with a practically invisible seam. I used a Xicar V cutter to open the head. The preflight draw was tough so I performed another cut; making an X. Initial light-up brought excellent flavor with some pepper. This cigar is very similar to the Oliva V, only smoother. The flavor stayed excellent throughout the cigar. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I had to break out the nub tool to keep from burning my fingers. I'd rate this 5 stars if not for the tough draw. Perhaps a few months in the humidor at 65% will improve it. For now, 4-4.5 stars.

Cwbierer on 06/08/15

Extremely chocolatey. Has some decent spice to back it up. Wish it was a little creamier to go with the chocolate.. incredibly smooth all the way through. Spice picks up throughout the cigar and chocolate is ever present. Will definitely buy again

Serie V Melanio by Oliva

64oldsguy on 06/17/15

The construction was very good on this cigar which led to an excellent burn and draw. While I don’t overvalue the appearance of cigars for reviews, this is an beautiful cigar to look at while smoking. I enjoyed the box press shape and the double bands aren’t overwhelming. Even though the Serie V Melanio reaches full strength by the end, novice and veteran smokers alike should be able to enjoy this vitola. Novice smokers may feel the need to put it down before reaching the last third, I don’t see that as a tremendous loss since the cigar displays it’s full array of quality flavors in the first 2/3rds. The abundance of quality flavors in this cigar is not to be taken lightly. However, I feel the presentation of them fell somewhat short of what I expected. The Serie V Melanio presented various flavors that I enjoy but the proper dosage of them was incorrect, at least for me. This might correct itself in a different size or with more time to rest. I’ve seen this cigar rated very highly from various reputable cigar reviewers online and while my experience was enjoyable, I wouldn’t quite put it on the same level as the other reviews. My only assumption (take this with a grain of salt) is the cigars reviewed by me were purchased at local cigar store while the others were given a single cigar at the 2012 IPCPR. From past experience, blends do change from the IPCPR to what is sold to retailers on occasion. I had to make a decision between purchasing the Serie V or Serie V Melanio, which would I choose? Both of them. They are two different cigars with two different wrappers. They don’t smoke similar in flavor nor look similar in appearance so I feel they fill the needs of different niches. In my limited experience, I find the Serie V more enjoyable but I haven’t quite tried the various sizes offered in the Melanio so take that as my initial assessment. While the price point may be higher than most people are comfortable paying, I certainly feel it’s a cigar worth trying. I plan to keep maybe a “fiver” on hand to see how they age even though a box would only be a ten count.

CigarWilly on 06/15/15

I personally like most cigars in a robusto size. I was told by an older lady, who works at this particular humidor, that it had a nice spicy kick. Despite the fact that it was absolutely not spicy, it did have a good flavor. One of the many things I enjoy in a good cigar is a big cloud of smoke. I found I had to puff away to keep it lit.

red1 on 06/12/15

One of the best nica's out there. This is at the high end of my spending limit but it's totally worth it. This is a very rich and full bodied smoke. In not like the connoisseurs that can tell you what the roller had for lunch but I did notice cocoa and pepper. If you truly love cigars you need to at least get some Robusto's. Cigar Aficionado rated the Figurado #1 last year for a reason.

jimmyjimjames on 06/12/15

Smooth little cigar. It had decent oils on the wrapper. The was flavor consistent with what you would expect in a Maduro wrapper. The draw was tight, but smooth. I don't like too tight of a draw because I don't want to have to work hard to smoke a cigar and if it's too loose it burns too fast.

Melanio joins the Series V Excellence!

BrianXLR8 on 06/18/15

The Oliva Series V Melanio is one supreme smoke! It seems to typically be classified as a full bodied stick, though after smoking a few, I'm calling it one of the best medium-full profiles out there. The Series V is on my top 5 all time best list, with the Melanio being just a bit more mild, and a touch more refined. Most notable flavor characteristics drawn from the ligero filler include an earthy leather with a sweet cedar and just a touch of a light roasty vanilla. It's obviously heading to cigar stardom with the recent press and high accolades. With that, they are selling at full price, which is still a good value, and much more attractive than the Padron 64 family that delivers a similar flavor profile. Some wishful thinking may get the price per stick down a few bucks, which would lock the Melanio in as a go-to staple for me. For right now, book it at a 94 rating for me, with upside should that price come down.

Over hyped

Peterman97 on 06/15/15

This is a very good smoke but it is definitely not the number one cigar the year I personally prefer the EP Carrillo La Historya, which is ranked the number to cigar of the year is much better. It's a very strong Cuban ask type of smoke but not much complexity in the flavors some pepperiness to it some woodsiness to it but overall that's just about it. Don't get me wrong this is not a bad cigar but don't believe all the reviews you read

Top notch

No expert on 06/15/15

I wish I could bring myself to spend the money to make this my everyday any occasion stick. Consistent in taste construction and draw. Excelent long smoke over a single malt or good Irish whiskey. If you get a chance, go ahead!!!! You'll have no regrets. If you share one with a friend, make sure you really like him cause he'll want to hangout more after the experience.

Oliva is always a solid choice. I grab one everyone I go to a cigar shop. My humidor always has a few of these stocked. My husband and I both agree that all Oliva cigars are worth a try.

Oliva Series V Melanin is a WIN!!

Angryfotoman on 06/14/15

The robusto is honestly my favorite size. Oliva puts pride into this stick and it shows. The presentation is spot on, pretty light aroma aromatic, burn is even and no problem, and I always end up smoking it down to where it burns my fingers ha ha ha. If you want a truly quality stick that will not break the pocketbook you cannot go wrong with the robust

Serie v

Bradlutz on 06/13/15

The first thing is a ton of smoke with a very pleasant sweet tobacco taste and an earth back bone. Slight pepper through the retrohale. It picked up a sweet bread note and left a tingle on the end of the tongue. the sweetness now resembles that of an 80% cacao chocolate bar still with lots of pleasant earth notes. The pepper is picking up more now and is more defined in the retrohale. it picked up a coffee bitterness that slowly pushed out the chocolate. The pepper can now be tasted on the tongue and is powerful on the retrohale

Oliva V Melanio Robusto

Austin Carroll on 06/08/15

This being the number one cigar in the world, I had very high expectations. It started off very well, spicy but not over the top, cedary, a little bit of hay. By the beginning of the second third, the spice was gone for good and the woody and hay flavors were very dominant with a little floral kick. I have to say, for all the hype I was disappointed. That being said, this is still a great stick, and performed very well with a very consistent burn, great construction, and pretty solid flavor. I just don't think it deserves all the hype it gets.

Overall, the wrapper was very uniform with a slight oily quality about it. Cold draw was very earthy with some slight cedar undertones. The overall burn of the cigar was slow and even I just the way it should be. Quite a bit of pepper in this stick (I usually prefer more mild bodied smokes) but presented some tasty notes of raisin, milk chocolate, and that wonderful cedar throughout... Great smoke!

CretinDan on 06/14/15

Beautiful wrapper, excellent cap, all veins are small. Nice smooth draw, but a slight plastic-y flavor. No hint in the lit smoke though. Roasted coffee, sweet like molasses. Toasted almond-like note. Halfway in I get a wonderful toasted coconut note. Creaminess just barely shows up, Halfway through, coconut, nice subtle change. Lots of black pepper on the finish. Lingers on the palate. Beautiful. One thing about Oliva cigars. Flawless construction. Every cigar I've ever had of theirs.

Oliva Series V Melanie Robusto

ROMESBURNIN on 06/10/15

This particular Oliva is definitely in my top 15 cigars. Me being a Oliva fan anyway maybe I'm just a Homer. But the burn is even and smooth from first toast to final draw. Hints of sweetness on the back end and smooth all the way through on every pull. I'm my opinion this is a great cigar for beginners to start with. Easy to distinct flavors on the palette and not over powering to turn someone off. Great cigar. Highly recommend this particular Oliva.

This stick is pretty comparable to a Padron, but not as fulfilling on the flavor side. A great alternative though if the Padrons are a little out of your price range.

Decent

Bowie cigar lover on 06/27/15

The flavors tend to be very different from cigar to cigar. The draw was decent. They get a bit of acidic when they are short. The don't hold up too well to my bite.

Great sick. I love Ovila! Very smooth, nice medium to fill smoke. Some chocolate and leather. Hint of spice. Great balance. Oliva makes a consistently great product. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best!

Rey Tabaco on 06/28/15

Consistently impressed by Oliva. This cigar was the top cigar of 2014 according to cigar aficionado. It has everything a quality cigar should and is one of my go tos when it comes to a slightly Spicey woodsy cedary smoke. Try one asap, nuff said!

Matthewmonn on 06/28/15

Not bad. Pretty good. I very much enjoyed it. It was very very very good especially for two chips. If it had to smoke this for two chips I would. Just wish I'd get 3 for this solid review

decent cigar for the price

garaxiel on 06/28/15

Mild to medium smoke. Good creamy flavors for the first third and middle. Very smooth. Final third gets a little earth in there. Definitely one to keep around.

Enjoyed the melanio

Suburbanloki on 06/29/15

Very good medium to full body cigar. Lots of flavor and decent complexity. Not your average oliva. Stronger flavors through the cigar. A nice bit of spice at the end.

Oliva Melanio is an experience!

alfie57 on 06/13/15

The first puff was a bit spicy but after 4-5 it started to have a nice woodsy caramel taste. Very creamy towards the end and never got hot...nice puffs down to the very end. The Melanio is a great cigar but I still favor the Series V. Just my preference!

Nice

Wheresbilly on 06/30/15

“Consistent quality is very important to me in cigars. I have found Oliva to be relentlessly reliable in the consistent quality of all the lines that bear their name. The “V” stands out even from that standard. It is one of a handful of uniquely exquisite cigars available to the average aficionado today. The praise it gathers is not hype and the experience is well worth the price of admission. One tip, use your nose to experience all the “V” has to offer and give it your undivided attention

This is why I smoke cigars.

papadogg01 on 06/13/15

One of those cigars that remind you why cigars are amazing. Great pre-light draw. Starts out with a kic, but smooths right out. Enjoyable to the nub
