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.

#1 cigar of the year from Cigar Aficionado. This is a great tasting cigar specially rolled in the factory. I would include it in my regular list of cigars.

Rich and creamy smoke. Very consistent flavor throughout the cigar. Lives up to the rest of the oliva name. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again

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.

very good

on 04/13/15

Very nice cigar, good smooth draw, great smoke output. Solid cigar, not a bad price. First third was a little slow to get flavors, but opened up nicely the second and third.

Oliva = quality

Cigarlovernj on 05/08/15

By far Oliva makes some of the best cigars. No surprise they were in cigar aficionados top 10. Love the Oliva series x as well.

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

on 04/13/15

Well constructed cigar. Get sweet notes with creamy flavor. Picks up on spice in the second third. Then it all comes together in the third and you get sweet with some spice but not over powering. Still creamy.

Oliva Series V Melanio

on 04/15/15

This is one of the best cigars I have smoked. The construction is above par. Very sharp razor like burn throughout the entire stick. Very complex flavors from coffee to a mild pepper. Very creamy dense smoke. Always keep a few in my humidor! ! Highly recommend this stick!

Olivia V

on 04/13/15

I found this stick to be a great smoke. It started off with a strong pepper flavor which transitioned into some bitter chocolate and ended with slight coffee notes.

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!

Decent stick

on 04/13/15

It was an overall decent stick. Had some issues with draw over 5 sticks but nothing too horrible. 4 of the 5 had burn issues needing touch ups. It was an enjoyable smoke and I'd probably buy again.

Draws like a masterpiece

on 04/13/15

The one thing that I came away with after smoking this beauty is the draw. It's thick and smoky and will make itself known once you take a pull

on 04/14/15

Full Flavored

on 04/14/15

The Melanio gets mixed reviews sometimes, but I'm a fan - especially in the smaller vitolas. Great amount of spice and power to accentuate the flavors.

Excellent

on 04/14/15

Loved this stick. I looked the toro more because there was more to smoke. Creamy, peppery, leathery, smooth. Construction was top notch (of course) and the draw was perfect (also of course).

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.

melanio review

on 04/14/15

One of my favorite cigars at the moment. Even though some people dismiss the hype, I love what this cigars brings to the table. Delicious chocolate notes and a hearty tabacco flavor makes this cigar a favorite with coffee or a stout beer.

Not the best Oliva

on 04/14/15

Good smoke production. Flavors were muted in comparison to other Oliva V series. Presentation and wrapper are beautiful. Not a bad cigar, but not as good as the normal Serie V line.

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

Great smoke on the medium/full body side of things. Burn was even and produces clouds of thick creamy smoke. Mild spice and medium strength. Love this in a torpedo.

pretty good, nothing amazing

on 04/15/15

Definitely an enjoyable smoke. Great flavor, good draw and an even burn. Price wasn't too bad, but probably not a daily smoke. As much as i enjoyed it, it wasn't something that really blew me a away. I would recommend trying it to anyone.I will get it again at some point.

Very aVerage oliVia

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

Cream of the crop!

on 04/15/15

IMO the cream of the crop for Oliva. Flavors are deep Coco, leather, with a zing of pepper however not over powering on the pepper.

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.
