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.

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)

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 !

One of my favorites. This is always a consistent smoke. Medium to Full flavor. Spice notes that carry through the entire smoke. I recommend this Cigar to the novice and the aficionado. From sitting on your porch or being out on the golf course this is an every day cigar for every man and woman.

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.

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.

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

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.

Dessert for Adults

Afoltz92 on 06/08/15

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

Distinguishedruffian_Rico on 07/21/15

This is a fantastic smoke. I like most Oliva's but I LOVE this smoke!! From start to finish it is consistant and has beautiful coffee and caramel notes, but this is no light smoke it's a very full bodied full flavored smoke and the Ecuadorian Sumatra gives it the oil it needs Id give this a 9.5 out of 10

Oliva Serie V Melanio Review

Williaje on 07/20/15

An absolute joy to smoke. Perfectly constructed. An overall winner. From the initial puff to the nub, a near perfect stick. VERY highly recommended. A consistent flavor and smoke from beginning to end. Hints of earth, leather and mild spices make for a thoroughly enjoyable smoking experience. Although I normally smoke the V Maduro Churchill, the robusto makes for an excellent change of pace. Unique.

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.

Very good cigar with a great draw and a nice after taste.Enjoyable smoke with a very consistent burn cigar after cigar.I have smoked everything from Cohiba Cuban siglos series to opus x and this cigar compares with the top level of cigars.It was good out of the box with basically no humidor time but got better(yes I said better) after setting in my 70% humidity humidor for few weeks.Basically if you haven't tried some of these you are doing your taste buds a disservice.Enjoy ladies and gentlemen

Melanio Perfecto

Avalon on 06/11/15

Loads of smooth creamy smoke. Starts with a mild/medium nut and cedar flavor profile and builds continuously into a heavy medium of not full bodies cigar with light spices. Flawless construction with only one vein in a mottled smooth wrapper.

Beats Everything Out There

Bradford on 06/11/15

I am a bit of an Oliva fanboy so I finally broke the bank and got a handful of these bad boys at my local B&M. The Melanio take the superb Serie V to the next level, and this has become my new celebratory cigar. I had read that the Melanio contained a hint of caramel flavor, which I did notice, though it was subtle.

A Creamier 'V'

Teddyespo on 07/07/15

One of my favorites! Always been a fan of Oliva. Was excited to try this one. It's like the standard 'V' but creamier, smoother, and with more flavor (if you can believe it!). Priced a bit high, but we'll worth it!

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.

Not bad

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.

T on 06/20/15

the Serie V from Oliva cigars is an enchanting Nicaraguan puro chock full of flavorful goodness. On the outside, a beautiful Habano Sun Grown wrapper glistens with oils. Thick and smooth as silk, this impressive leaf conceals a powerful, yet balanced and smooth blend of aged Nicaraguan ligero from the Jalapa Valley of Nicaragua. The Oliva Serie 'V" cigar is full-bodied and full-flavored, offering layers of coffee, spice, and tobacco flavors, with a touch of dark, unsweetened chocolate on the finish.

Enjoyable and consistent smoke. I tried for the first time not knowing what to expect but I will be back for more. I love the flavor and color of the wrapper. I am always comparing to cohibas but this stands alone and is a good stand alone product. I would buy again and would give to friends as gifts.

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!

Melanio

Mynamesnotdan on 06/17/15

Okay

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.

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.

Bought a pack of 5, I have a couple buddies who smoke cigars on a regular basis and they have never tried this one. Only 1 out of 5 didn't like it. I have to say for the price and what you get, I would go ahead and buy a pack of 5. You will enjoy this cigar through and through. Smooth draw, not too strong, easy to stay lit.

This Oliva V Melanio is an incredible cigar. This cigar packs a nice punch of pepper and spice on the palate, but is nice and soothing with the retrohale bringing out some very pleasureful floral notes that ease the burn of the spice. It's a very medium-full bodied cigar with regards to tobacco strength. However it's very full bodied in terms of flavor. Complex yet balance and easy to smoke!

Very good but not Oliva's best.

Itsthenoff on 07/16/15

The Oliva V Melanio Robusto is a very good and very consistent cigar. I personally encountered a slightly draw and smoke production was actually light. Burn was slow, even, and cool so no complaints regarding construction. Flavors of coffee, hickory wood, leather, and a coating of black pepper kept things interesting. I personally like the Oliva serie O best of the Oliva offerings, and I didn't love this particular offering, despite it being a very good cigar. For me, the burn time was about 1:10 and the flavors stayed fairly consistent.

A great cigar at a good price

Dieselmann34 on 07/21/15

The Olivia v series cigar is a great cigar. They are a full bodied cigar. But don't let that intimidate you it mellows out into a nice and mellow medium cigar. With notes of pepper and cedar then goes very cedar but on the mild side. With notes of vanilla. You can't go wrong with this cigar. But in my honest opinion I go with bigger ring cigars because even if it a strong cigar it mellows out a lot with size.

vcasiano on 07/26/15

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.

I tried this the first I'm yesterday this weekend. It is easily a top smoke to date. Very strong and full yet balanced and not over powering. I enjoyed it immensely. Half way through the flavor begins to really round out and you just want to enjoy the cigar more and more. Great smoke.

Matt P on 07/30/15

I know the torpedo won "Cigar of the Year", but I don't like the shape of torpedoes or the feel of them in my mouth. The robusto is my favorite size, and this is one of the best on the market. Full-flavored, consistent construction, and never anything less than a razor-sharp burn. It's exactly what you'd expect from Oliva V Series.

V review

Joseph on 07/03/15

Every day when I get up in the morning I think about what cigar I want to smoke and (Oliva Serie 'V') is always the first cigar I think of. I usually go with another cigar because it is so hard to get my hands on a box of series V Torpedos so I want to save them for special occations. When I finally get to light up a stick I always regret my choice because every cigar ever made just doesn't compare to the series V torpedo. I have a stacked humidor with cubans and a very good and expensive selection but I dream of my series V every night... If you haven't tried it before I feel sorry for you

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

This cigar is a consistent mild/medium bodied smoke. This stick was good for its price range, and I would smoke this one again.

Great stick

daiyamo126 on 06/13/15

Great smoke, apt for celebrating the patriarch of the Oliva family. Full body full strength, great notes of cedar, honey, toast and cream. If i could afford it this would definitely be a regular smoke for me. Burn was razor sharp and construction was excellent, I smoked it down to the nub.

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

A great stick, worth the price!

Beardedlemon on 07/03/15

Great smoke. The flavor is more on the coffee/mocha side. I didn't notice that pleasant change in flavor that I usually taste about halfway through most sticks, which was a little disappointing but nothing terrible. For me, the draw was very good (I used a punch cutter) and stayed that way throughout the length of the stick. There was a decent amount of smoke, but not as much as something like a Liga Privada. This is actually one of my favorite cigars so far!

I will buy it again It was very good and consistent with a great flavor Had a woody taste with a nice even burn. Solid ash No burning issues I will buy these again. Great buy for the price. Even my wife likes these cigars My suggest these to my kids for a great idea for a Father's Day gift I would like to try more of this same brand of cigars. Maybe a smaller cigar would be more my style

Damn good smoke.

Brads wood turnings on 07/05/15

This stogie isn't for the faint of heart, for me it was a full flavored smoke. Excellent blend with a good wrap. If you grade your stogy with the ash test I'd give it a 95 out of a 100. We're talking about a ash brick at the end averaging about 1-1/4 inches. Any real cig-fella knows what I'm talking about. So I say hook up with JR's and order a box or two and Enjoy.

Bob on 06/13/15

There was very little prelight flavor from the wrapper. The light was nice and easy. There was consistent nutty flavors throughout. The cigar stayed consistent throughout the smoke. No construction issues and the wrapper stayed intact through the entire smoke. It was a great smoke. Paired with a glass of bourbon

rough start, strong finish

Apcav1 on 07/06/15

Construction feels very solid despite having a really tight draw. The flavors of the first third were leathery and heavily peppered. The 2nd third improved greatly with a looser draw and introductions to some creamy flavors. The burn was solid to the end which had more hits of pepper, leather and cream

moocowrich on 06/13/15

Oliva Series V Melanie Rubusto

Coach on 06/20/15

Smooth draw with good flavor. I prefer a punch opposed to a cut end, and the draw with the punch was very condistant. Cap held up well but had to be removed 2/3 way into the cigar (only downfall of using a punch). Construction was good, and certainly worth the price. Good smoke.

flop

Cigar Willy on 07/08/15

It is a good cigar, but in my opinion not the best or anywhere close to what it's made up to be. It has a rather dull flavor. The burn was even throughout the cigar. The cigar was sold to me as one of the "best cigars on the market" but to my complete disappointment I found it to be not. I was told it was bold and spicy. It is not. I usually try a few of the same cigar before I decide if I like it or not, but I will not be purchasing another one of these. The price and the smoke do not match up for me.

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.

Not as full bodied but much like the original Oliva V

Squidability on 07/11/15

If you enjoyed the Oliva V , this is essentially very solar except for a few tweaks for what many believe to be for the better. It's not quite as full bodied as its predecessor but it makes up for that by being extremely smooth and a creamier comparative. Well constructed and beautiful to feel and look at, its definitely one of olivas best offerings. An even medium/ medium full. Definitely worth trying at least once although you'll most likely come back for more

years best

squaresoft on 07/14/15

Tremendous flavor as you would expect from a cigar of the year winner. Oliva has really been bringing substantial quality and consistency to the table in the past few years culminating with the V line and the melanio. You get a deep rich leather with notes of coffee and chocolate. A retrohale of fragrant wood...not as many flavor changes as some cigars, more a building upon flavors that are already near perfect. Try one if you can, but in my opinion steer clear of the figurado, draw was a bit tight on mine and I had to continuously massage the stick to keep good smoke.

The series V Melanio started off well. The cold draw was semi floral with some cocoa notes. The first thirst was medium to full bodied and tasty.

Tightly wraped but with a few rolls between fingers the draw was better. Notes of cinnamon. Pretty consistent through out. Would buy again.

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.

kurtkaymooney on 06/14/15

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!

Loose Draw on 07/17/15

It was definitely a good cigar as are most of Oliva cigars. However the price point is extreme. In my opinion not worth the price just to get a fancy wrapper with a mediocre cigar attatched.

Give it a try

Han solo burger on 07/18/15

This cigar was known for its strong tobacco taste and also strong earthy peppery flavours. The thing is that latest production has been made quite milder. For those who miss the old strong flavours, a possible solution is ageing the cigar properly, because it is presented in a fully varnished box, perfect for maturing the product.

Scott on 07/20/15

I bought this one before I learned how to find what I like. This was an excellent cigar, just right for me. I like cigars that set me back in the chair and make me wait for the next puff. This cigar I smoked without noticing it. Also, this one had no flavor that I could detect. It's finely made. Obviously the medium strength and flavor are intentional. Someone loves these. I'll purchase them again. I'll rate it ok on flavor, as strength is medium.

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.

The Oliva Serie V is nothing short of greatness. From the full body to the flawless draw, there is very little that can be found wrong with this Nicaraguan smoke.

I shared one of these with my mates on a off outing. Wow I loved it but it was a bit strong for my friends that did not smoke. Great for the fire and a beer or the poker room at Ballys

great cigar from Oliva.

LSUCIGAR on 08/05/15

This Oliva is a well made, great tasting cigar. It has lots of coffee notes and a great medium spice level. It's a beautiful cigar.

Melanio

Thermal on 08/05/15

Next to the CAO Amazin Basin, which are rare, this is the best cigar out there. Right to the nub. Box pressed to boot, a win-win.

Best of Oliva

Wahwah18 on 08/05/15

Great stick from Oliva! Full of spice, with a medium/full body. Possibly the best one Oliva makes. The Robusto and Figurado seem to let this blend shine the best.

Delicious!

DooWay86 on 08/05/15

One of my absolute favorites! This was the best summer vacation cigar! Draw was excellent, really felt like smoking with class. Flavor notes of light hickory, and a medium roasted coffee. Zips the sides of the tongue on the initial taste, made even more enjoyable once re-lit!

Magnificent Maduro Masterpiece

Rpaf524 on 08/06/15

This medium/full bodied smoke is jam-packed with rich, flavorful tobaccos. Earthy, leathery undertones are perfectly harmonized with a sharp, crackling pepper, as well as a subtle hint of sweetness and coca to thrill the palate of even the most veteran cigar aficionado

never pass on the opportunity

Shan039 on 08/06/15

One of the Best. 1/3: Starts out earthy, nutty nice rush very smooth. 2/3: Creamy, peanut butter. Changes to honey with hints of cocoa. Held 1.5" ash with ease. 3/3: Coffee with milk. The burn still very even, smooth all the way to the end. I am a huge fan of a full cigar... The consistency changes, but in this case, is a wonderful thing... Awesome smoke

Olivia

Sprtbuf on 08/06/15

Tried this beauty in my Olivia rotation The draw was spot on with good volume of smoke. The wrapper held tight all the way through with tight ash. The flavor was full and bold.

Great cigar

C10H on 08/06/15

One of the best economy premium cigars out on the market today. Has an earthy start to it, with an outstanding draw. Very easy to smoke, and the finish isn't too hot with a very even burn throughout

Great Way To Finish a Day

Cool

Smokey The Bear on 08/07/15

Really great smoke. If you like bold, spicy, smooth with a great finish these are the cigars you should try. Buy a five pack to try then if you like them buy larger amounts. JR makes it easy to find what you want and what you need for all your cigar needs.

Perfect 5 pack

Justn on 07/09/15

The best cigar in the line is the Torpedo, which measures 6 inches long with a fat 56 ring gauge. The cigar is made with a high-priming wrapper that cloaks all-Nicaraguan filler and binder leaves. The cigar is stronger than other Olivas, but still in the medium-bodied range. The important thing is that the cigars are rich, teeming with coffee-bean and caramel notes, and have balance and finesse. Tasty tasty smoke for those days when you can't believe this is what your life has come to.

Worth the price e of admission

Tesoro on 08/09/15

This stick is a frigging blockbuster. Amazing taste, it somehow even trumps the normal Oliva v line. I've been an Oliva smoker for close to ten years and I was hesitant to pull the trigger on such an expensive stick that was "just an oliva".it was worth it.

A friend brought these for our cigar Thursday get together. I have tried most oliva, and sometimes they are hit and miss. I've had 5 since first trying, and have enjoyed each one.
