Robusto This is really Good cigar! Oliva V is my favourite. I LOVE this taste..and lenght. Construction and consistency are perfect! 5 5 1
Robusto Purchased a box of 10 and I'm thoroughly satisfied. The Oliva Serie V Melanio is among my favorites. Great cigar at a great price JR Cigars even threw in 10 free Oliva cigars with my purchase! (5 serie O robustos 5 Nub CT's). My only complaint is that it says it comes with 2 boveda packs but someone must've forgotten to throw them in when packaging my order. It's a slight complaint and the 10 free cigars makes up for it. I'm happy with my purchase it's just that I don't have a humidor of my own and wanted to keep em as fresh as possible. I'll be purchasing more Melanio's for sure. 5 5 1
Robusto I know people are obsessed with this for some reason but I really do not understand what all the hype's about. They're rated extremely well too which is weird. I don't think the taste is anything special in any way shape or form. The build quality on the other hand is gorgeous. 4 5 1
Robusto smoked my first last evening a day after its delivery and I was in heaven. This cigar was incredible from start to finish. 5 5 1
Robusto Delicious cigar. Sometimes you can find good deals on the box of 10. Flavors of spice chocolate and toast. Favors change as you smoke. Really great experience. Wish I could smoke more often. 5 5 1
Robusto Everyone raves about this cigar and you can definitely see why. The flavors are amazing from beginning to finish. Only negative is the price tag. 5 5 1

Robusto What a cigar... The box the presentation and the deal make this a no brainer. .I would take advantage of this deal over and over!! 5 5 1

Robusto This is one of my favorite cigars very outstanding great flavor burns evenly just an outstanding cigar a must try 5 5 1
Robusto Nice well balanced smoke. Excellent blend of flavors that build as you smoke the cigar and it has the near perfect draw that is not too tight but not just openly allowing smoke to flow without the pull. 4 5 1
Robusto These are excellent cigars with great full flavor and smooth draw. Can't beat jr prices...I'll be back 5 5 1
Robusto The oliva serie v Melanie is a top rated cigar and I like getting them for a reasonable price from jrcigar. Always great service. Always fast delivery. 5 5 1
Robusto If you like the regular V as much as I do this will be a real treat. It's definitely worth the price tag that comes with it. Not for a daily smoke but a real treat. 5 5 1
Robusto This in my opinion is a flawless cigar. Super smooth medium to full bodied with complex flavors. It pairs well with anything. After smoking several of them it became the first cigar to be good enough to be box worthy. 5 5 1
Robusto This is my preferred size and I cannot say anything bad about this cigar since it is on my top list 5 5 1
Robusto The V meliano is an excellent blend with pepper spice and chocolatey cream notes with coffee and caramel. This is a delicious cigar no matter what size 5 5 1
Robusto Overall this is a perfect cigar. Can't be in the cigar world without thinking this is a great cigar in all sizes. 5 5 1
Robusto I expected an excellent smoke given the reviews. Upon receipt I was impressed. That moment was brief as the experience was bitter and lacking character. The smoke output was somewhat decent; aroma presented as stale. I find it surprising that it was voted best of 2014. They're awful. I now am reminded to stick with the tried and true. Monte Rocky and Bolivar are consistently satisfying; lesson learned. 1 5 1
Robusto The Melanio in natural is amazing! I love the cocoa and leather. It's a full bodied smoke with amazing dessert like flavors to enjoy. 5 5 1
Robusto Great taste for morning or when ever every day all day cigar long lasting slow burn great taste will buy more 5 5 1
Robusto Velvety smooth aged tobacco taste. Truly a well balanced medium-full profile and strength.. How long will this box last?.. 6 months + 2 weeks... 6 months to ripen and 2 weeks for smoking :) 5 5 1
Robusto I dont feel like the robusto burns as evenly as the churchill on a consistent bases but it still has all the same great flavors! 5 5 1

Robusto Any melanio will be a fantastic smoke. This is good when you don't have a lot of time. Full flavor. Well constructed. I smoked thru the entire cigar without having to relight. Grab them now while you can get a ten cigar sampler free with your purchase! 5 5 1
Robusto Full of flavor! I prefer the Churchill but don't always have the time to smoke it and this is perfect when I don't have a long time. JRCigars sweetened the deal by adding 10 other olivas with this box! A great cigar well worth the price! 5 5 1
Robusto The quality and craftsmanship of this cigar is top notch. Box pressed and even came with a boveda pack from the factory under cedar in bottom of box. My new favorite cigar. 5 5 1

Robusto Great smoke for the money. Tell a friend! I would recommend to anyone that enjoys the finer things. 3 5 1
Robusto I recently got this in a JRs sampler bundle. I liked it because it is a smaller cigar that I found to not be too overwhelming. It is nice for a quick smoke when you want a cigar but are crunched for time. Also I really liked the construction... held its shape during the smoke better that a lot other cigars that would atart falling apart mid smoke... 4 5 1
Robusto Good smoke with great consistency alot of flavor and a slow burn highly recommend this smoke to at least try..... You wont be dissapointed 4 5 1

Robusto Name says it all robusto! A hearty smoke but not to stout that it would awaken an episode of Tales From The Crypt but strong enough to compete with the glass of Makers Mark on rocks you have in the other hand. 3 5 1
Robusto The Oliva Serie V Melanio is one hell of a smoke. The wrapper is so silky smooth. This is one finely handcrafted cigar that explodes with Rich flavors . It's a cool slow and even burning cigar that will satisfy you from first light to nub. This cigar is a must try for any cigar lover. 5 5 1

Robusto A lot of hype. This cigar was good don't get me wrong. I just don't think it's any better than the Oliva V. I would not shy anyone away from buying but forme I will continue to smoke the standard V. 4 5 1
Robusto Nice draw great smoke. Light flavor first third builds to cream with a little spice at end. Good construction firm roll. Wrapper deconstructed a little on mine maybe it was a bad cut. The whole cigar was a pleasurable experience I just wish I didn't have to spend the money for this think there are comparable smokes on the lower end of the price range. 3 5 1
Robusto This Oliva is probably the best Oliva I have ever smoked. So smooth from beginning to end. I understand why it received such a high rating. From the first light the burn was incredible. I would definitely smoke this cigar again! 5 5 1
Robusto Good smoke not my favorite but if you like this kind of cigar you know it's the one for you.. My grandpa likes these it's his flavor but one puff and she was too pungent for my me maybe when I get older and need more punch I'll try these again. 4 5 1
Robusto Very good cigar from start to finish. ..I was a little disappointed the first time I smoked one because I was comparing it to the series V ..this cigar is great in its own right but definitely not as full as the original series V.. 4 5 1
Robusto Thought this was a good cigar for a person who only smokes them occasionally. I thought that they were well priced and tasted good. I will be buying these in the future and my friends will be as well. 3 5 1
Robusto Exectlent draw great flavora very pretty looking wraper all aroundGreat smoke. I see why CA named it number. 5 5 1

Robusto A very well made cigar with lots of old flavor and nutty undertones . I can see why this cigar is always sold out. 4 5 1

Robusto Decent little cigar with little taste but constructed well! Good for on a golf course or on the road! 3 5 1
Robusto The Olivia series V is the dominant cigar of the oliva series. Great brand great cigar great amok great time. 4 5 1
Robusto Dear god where to start on the oliva v series an absolutely amazing cigar. One of the top five cigars I've ever had. There is a legitimate reason this cigar is rated so highly. The draw and construction are among the best I've ever seen or had the pleasure of smoking. The cigar is a full body cigar but the flavor profiles is so expertly crafted you don't even notice. I smoked this cigar all the way to the point it was burning my finger tips and I was still sad to put it down. 5 5 1
Robusto Wonderful stick. Great aroma I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I even got My wife to try this one and she liked this one and she don't smoke that often. 3 5 1

Robusto Good igar with a nice even burn and good consistency. It smokes for a long time so be prepared for a long t to ime of smoking. Im sure all will like this cigar. 3 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto I forgot my cigars when I went to a weekly poker game. The house was kind enough to give me one of these cigars. Very flavorful. Just a hint of leather coffee and nuts. Unfortunately it had a tendency to run. 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 5 5 1
Robusto Was okay not sure I would give it another shot. Might not have been my style or maybe I expected too much 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Theres a reason this was number one! I personally prefer the maduro version but its a great stick. Wish i could smoke one every day but the price is just too high😭 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 5 5 1
Robusto Smooth yet full of spice and flavor with some hints of floral a very easy smoke and a favorite Nicaraguan. 4 5 1
Robusto Good smoke with great draw and solid construction. Flavor was on par and not too strong. Burn was a little uneven but that was probably my fault. Worth every last puff 4 5 1
Robusto This is a very good cigar the only one that's better I think is the O series good draw lots of flavor and a good looking cigar good price for the quality 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent smoke - right down to the nub - a friend gave me one and after an hour in a half it was just ash - and I wanted more! Great cigar in all categories 5 5 1
Robusto Excellent great tasting cigar. Good burn good draw perfect for that time you need to sit back and let your cares float away. 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar was one of the first I've ever smoked and it was excellent. Consistent throughout with a bold flavor. A mainstay in my humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke. Lighter than I normally go but with plenty of flavor and a little spice. Nicely tingly on the retro hale while not overpowering. Very even burn and a delightful smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto A great cigar worth all of the great reviews. Satifing full body smoke. Great after a good meal. Would definitely recommend these. 4 5 1
Robusto Smoke was good overall but it burned a little odd during my smoke. Flavor was a little harsh in beginning but smoothed out to a fine smoke. 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto Excellent excellent excellent smoke. I'm no expert with picking out different flavors and changes in a cigar but this one is thoroughly enjoyable. 4 5 1
Robusto I loved this cigar! Well constructeddraw stayed consistent the whole way through plenty of smoke no hot spots even burn and fantastic flavor. Every Oliva I've tried has been amazing steady rotation in my humidir 5 5 1
Robusto Full-bodied and full-flavored. You may taste notes of black pepper bread or unsweetened cocoa. You might also notice some toast or coffeedlavors on the finish. 3 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto A good solid smoke. Very well made good draw very handsome. Nice size. Won't take an afternoon to smoke. Tastes good too. 4 5 1
Robusto Will rolled smoke nice smooth draw nice burning smoke and it didn't hot box it cuts good and it smokes nice 4 5 1
Robusto One of my favorite go to cigars. Definitely in my humidor at all times. It has a nice leathery wrapper and a medium to full body smoke start to finish is great! 5 5 1
Robusto Oliva is one of my favorite cigars to smoke. I like the O serie but the Serie V Melanio Robusto has a nice smooth pull with a hint of pepper spice. Very delightful cigar for the smoking occasion. 3 5 1
Robusto Got these as a gift and wasn't sure what to expect. I was not disappointed. This even flavored and full bodied cigar did have a tight draw but offered a satisfying smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto Good cigar box press was fine I liked the feel. Light colored chocolate wrapper. Even burn. Taste was peppery with some mild spices. This cigar is mmmm good 3 5 1
Robusto This cigar is a solid addition to any collection. It is not something that will wow you but I guarantee that you will enjoy it from time to time. 3 5 1
Robusto This is a very good cigar for a short smoke. Well built and a full body smoke and smooth stronger aroma and smoke bought a box to try 4 5 1
Robusto This is top of the line. This is what you want in a smoke. A nice consistent draw and flavor. Bold but balanced. Overall great cigar 4 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite cigars! I absolutely love it. It's a medium bodied cigar that is extremely consistent and full of flavor. Recommend it to everyone! 5 5 1
Robusto Series V Olivo is one of the best out there. Very consistent with complex flavors. Would definately get this one again. 4 5 1
Robusto Draw felt tight beautiful cigar very tasty earthy leathery full bodied smoke Not for a beginner Priced just right 4 5 1
Robusto These happen to be my go to cigar. A little pricey but well worth the money. The cigar starts and end smooth a bit spivey off the bat but mellows out as you go. 5 5 1
Robusto bought a box of Robustos and let them sit for 35 days and decided to smoke my first one on the 4th of July. Easily one of the best cigars I have smoked. The only thing I didn't like is that it didn't last longer. I decided to fix that problem and go with a box of churchills on my next purchase;) Great taste and huge amounts of smoke with a near perfect burn and draw. You can't go wrong here. 4 5 1
Robusto Solid cigar and well worth the price. Bought a box for the golf course. Like mild more than medium but this was good for a medium for sure. 4 5 1
Robusto Is truly an exceptional smoke. It was worth every penny. I highly recommend it. Have a smooth even pull and has enough power behind it to make it a great after dinner cigar! 5 5 1
Robusto Such a perfect stick and to me the robusto is the perfect size as well. There is no reason this one should never be in stock in your rotation!! 5 5 1
Robusto Full body easy drawstays lit but by the time I got half way whewww I felt queezy and lightheaded but I was prewarned before I bought it that it kinda makes you a little messed up 4 5 1
Robusto Good smoke interesting flavors. Best size after the figurado. Pricey but worth the money. Maduro excellent as well. 4 5 1
Robusto Great stick but I prefer the torpedo over the rubusto. I feel that to get the most enjoyment out of this paricular series you need a longer smoke. Even though it was shorter it was enjoyable regardless. This is only my opinion as you can't go wrong with this cigar 5 5 1
Robusto I'm more of a full bodies smoker but I enjoyed the mild flavors of the Serie V. It's an excellent smoke and worth picking up. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best Oliva cigars I've ever smoked. Great taste and good even burn. Nice mild flavor that I would definitely recommend to friends and family! 4 5 1
Robusto I was with my neighbor while HE was smoking this. The aromatics were very pleasant. nice earthy and not to intense. I have to try this for myself. he kept satin how good this was. now I haVe to try. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Great for relaxing and camping. Wrapping was very nice and great combination of flavors. I was able to get a leather and tobacco flavor right off the bat but towards the end was able to taste a little spice. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 3 5 1
Robusto Amazing smoke. Smooth draw from beginning to end. This is one of my go to cigars after a long day of work. Would recommend to anyone looking for a smooth cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Great full flavor cigar. Great flavor lasts throughout. Starts great and gets even better. Wonderful smoke! 4 5 1
Robusto Very well constructed and overall a great cigar. Picked one up in a shop in Seattle and had a good time smoking it. 4 5 1
Robusto Oliva Serie is a very nice cigar. It's very mild and the taste is very pleasant. My friends introduced this cigar to me and when I tried the the first time I must say I really liked it so it's a must try!! 4 5 1
Robusto I am not a fan of the box pressed cigars however this one was an exception. The cigar had a great taste throughout the entire stick. Burned great razor sharp. The draw was perfect. Very enjoyable 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke! I would recommend this stick for a good relaxing day. Good draw and well constructed. Buy a box today! 5 5 1
Robusto One of the best you can get. Burn draw construction flavor all surpassed even high expectations for me. Never have had a bad one you won't forget this cigar. Get some! 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is top notch. Excellent construction color and initial smell. For me the leather and coffee stood out. A lingering sweet caramel as well. Very even burn draw was smooth and slow. Lots of other nuances as well. 5 5 1
Robusto It was a good smoke. It burnt consistently tasted good throughout. It wasn't a smoke however that I would smoke until my fingers burnt because I got kind of bored with the flavor towards the end. I would give it another try though 3 5 1
Robusto Fantastic cigar great taste!! Burns really well can smoke these every day. A+ I would recommend this to everyone. 5 5 1
Robusto Smooth draw with an excellent construction excellent finish. I have enjoyed this with a smooth bourbon. Don't pair it with anything that will overpower it. 4 5 1
Robusto An outstanding cigar with spicy and cedar notes abound. Construction and draw was flawless. I did have to touch up the cigar to burn evenly at the start but I blame a lighter I've never used before. 4 5 1
Robusto Not a bad smoke . It has a smooth draw. Great to share with friends. I would recamend these to anyone 2 5 1
Robusto Superior quality just like I had expected from this brand. Full of flavor its def a medium-full to full flavored. 4 5 1
Robusto This medium-full flavored cigar is yummy delicious. I have experienced some tight draw sticks. But overall flavor is there. 3 5 1
Robusto Smooth nutty cigar with a great full flavor. Oliva's V series hasn't failed me yet...for those of you who appreciate the lancero size the Oliva V lancero is my favorite Oliva cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Great cigar for the $! The presentation is nice and it is a great tasting cigar. The boxes are a flat 10ct presentation. 4 5 1
Robusto I absolutely like this cigar it tastes great and pairs up with just about anything. Its a great everyday cigar I recommend this to everyone. I will be definitely getting more of these. 5 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto An interesting flavor may turn away some folks but probably one of the best cigars out there. This cigar is loved by many smokers and is one of the best Olivas out there! Which is saying something... 4 5 1
Robusto A nice full bodied cigar. A little bit stronger than what I typically smoke but a favorite for when I only want to smoke one cigar during an evening. The Oliva Series cigars are always satisfying. 3 5 1
Robusto Great smoke one of my favorite. Great with Tawny Port. It’s definitely my favorite out of the Oliva line. I love the spice that it offers up. A nice big powerful stick is always easy to smoke. 5 5 1
Robusto Tightly wound feels great smells good smaller than it looks in the catalogue or on the web... Burns long 3 5 1
Robusto This cigar was no doubtingly a contender fir cigar of the year. It was top 5 in my book. The flavor is phenomenal. The burn and draw are top notch. Their isn't too many bad things you can say about it. No.1 maybe not but extremely solid. 4 5 1
Robusto It had a very good draw burned evenly throughout the whole stick held a nice ash nice tasting with a creamy finish. 4 5 1
Robusto I paired this excat cigar with a few glasses of moscow gold vodka and redbull. Great taste and draw but made me break out in hives. Would love to try the cigar again without the drinks. 4 5 1
Robusto Wonderful smoke definitely worth every penny . Chock full of dry woody oak flavors medium full to full great taste all the way to the end . Biggest complaint is that it doesn't last longer ! 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best cigars I've smoked in a long time. Great smoke with a great full body taste. Even burn to the very end. Smoke one today 4 5 1
Robusto Very smooth draw with layered flavoring of nutty and earthly tones. The finish is as smooth as the start with an even burn. 4 5 1
Robusto No complaints. Ok cigar it's not my cup of tea but not bad. Worth trying if you're looking for something different. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a cigar that anyone could smoke and greatly enjoy. Great price for this stick that I could fire up any evening and savor. 3 5 1
Robusto It's deft smooth cigar and a great price point for the smoke. I smoke this with a nice glass of tauny port and the two go great together. 3 5 1
Robusto The Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto is a robust fantastic smoke. The suttle note of chocolate and the hint of nuttiness fulfilled my taste buds. The clean light smoke also made for an enjoyable smoking atmosphere. I will partake in the Oliva again. 4 5 1
Robusto The Olivia v was a very flavorful smoke with great construction notes of earth leather and coco abound buy them 4 5 1
Robusto Anything from the Olivia series V is going to be a good choice in my book. Had a small issue with wrapper separation but the rest made up for it! 4 5 1
Robusto I am not really a big fan of Oliva but I really enjoyed this cigar; not too powerful medium body. This cigar was tasty and produced plenty of smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto Long and double-tapered with box-pressed edges and perfect combustion. Full bodied and smooth big leather notes complement a range of coffee caramel and wood. 5 5 1
Robusto It was very good . Lots of flavor . The construction was excellent and the burn was nice. I would recommend it . 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto Very nice and consistent smoke. Good flavor but not overpowering. Clean draw and it didn't come apart in my hand. 4 5 1
Robusto A beautiful full bodied cigar that keeps you interested from start to finish. It's no surprise it was ranked the number 1 cigar by cigar afficianado for 2014 5 5 1
Robusto I smoked the Olivia once as a gift from my friend much better than I thought. Draw was decent and put off good amount of smoke . Held ash pretty good 4 5 1
Robusto Absolutely amazing. Better than the serie v! It has the same intensity but a more complex flavor. Beautiful in every single way 4 5 1
Robusto I went through a box of these and enjoyed every puff as if it was my last. Perfect balance of flavors and spice. This is how a cigar should taste. 5 5 1
Robusto The Olivia Series V Melanio is a well constructed good full bodied Nicaragua cigar. It has hints of leather caramel unsweetened cocoa wood and coffee. It is full bodied and full flavored. It has an Ecuadorian sumatra leaf wrapper that is thick oily and seamless. It has an easy draw . 3 5 1
Robusto Creamy spicy flavors. Always a solid choice however I'd buy more of them if they weren't so expensive 4 5 1
Robusto I was given a box of these as a gift. Only real problem I had with it was the draw but otherwise a decent cigar. 3 5 1
Robusto Ostentatious yet not overbearing. Notes of tannin hickory and pepper. Must be lit with fire source to enable smoking. 3 5 1
Robusto Good cigar nice smoke draw was a little different. Overall I would not exo ext anything less from Oliva cigars they seem to be fairly consistent. 4 5 1
Robusto The wrapper felt a little delicate but it did not take away from this smoke. Complex smooth and wonderful burn. Can't go wrong here. 5 5 1
Robusto Love this stick. The Melanio especially has a very smooth profile. For the price one of my favorite cigars. 3 5 1
Robusto One of my favorite cigars. Nice and creamy with almost a taste of peanut butter and chocolate really a must try cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Really tasty. Very consistent all the way through. The sungrown wrapper adds a bit of spice and nuttiness that the original V didn't quite have. 4 5 1
Robusto Great cigar. Very peppery taste but extremely smooth. Runs somewhere in the medium strength. Good construction and draw and ample smoke production. 4 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto Cheaper than my Liga Privada #9's and in my opinion a better tasting smoke. Soooo smooth & consistant down to the nub. Named CA's Cigar of the Year '14 wouldn't waste any time grabbing a box before they sell out or raise the price or both. 5 5 1
Robusto Fantastic cigar with wonderful nutty and spice notes. Complex in its profile from beginning to end. I was very skeptical of this cigar but it really impressed me. 4 5 1
Robusto Not sure if I got a bad stick but I was expecting more from this cigar. It was recommended to me by the local cigar shop so I purchased a stick. Seemed harsh at the beginning but did settle down. 3 5 1
Robusto Great flavorful smoke but inconsistent with the wrapper burn. Would definitely smoke Olivia again but the ones I got may force me to look for another kind 4 5 1
Robusto Having smoked a few of these I can say without a doubt a great stick. I prefer mine punched and they have great draw and full flavor. Razor sharp burn line with noted of leather and a nutty finish. Great stick if you can find them! 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar has a lot of complexity but consistent quality throughout. Expect a thrilling experience at the finish as the flavor creates a big splash at the end. Full-bodied cigar with lots to offer. Don't miss it! 4 5 1
Robusto Bought a single at a local cigar loungeGreat cigar. Smooth great burn. Even better than the original V. Will buy and smoke again. 5 5 1
Robusto Very oily and tasty treat. There is good reason that a Melanio series V is the reigning cigar of the year. If you haven't tried one of these stop cheating yourself and get your hands on some ASAP! 5 5 1
Robusto Fantastic smoke almost impossible to get at my local shops it seems. But they are cheaper here anyways! 4 5 1
Robusto A great medium to full bodied smoke with lots of flavor ! Definitely not an every day smoke due to the price but a cigar I would smoke again. 4 5 1
Robusto I did enjoy this smoke. Had excellent flavor but wasn't always consistent. The aroma was nice and a very beautiful burn and ash. Will buy again. 4 5 1
Robusto It was a real good smoke i like the way it burn the draw on was was ok it was constructed was nice. It had a real nice burn to it . 4 5 1
Robusto One of the most flavorful cigars I have ever smoked. It a at in my humidor for nearly a year which may have helped as well. Highly recommended. 5 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto Good stick for the price...i prefer the Serie G but this stick is proper nonetheless...Worthy of a few slots in the humidor 3 5 1
Robusto Quality cigar I would smoke again flavor did seem to change from cigar to cigar though. I would recommend everyone give it a try in a smaller size of possible. 4 5 1
Robusto Great all around cigar. These are a must have in my humidor. I've smoked quite a few of these cigars and they never disappoint. Perfect for a summer evening in the back yard with a double scotch neat. 5 5 1
Robusto I smoked this one when I was just starting to get into cigars. Definitely had a great draw to it and burned evenly throughout its entirety. Although I did like the smoke it was a little too strong for me at the time and left me lightheaded. 4 5 1
Robusto Great cigar with a nice flavor. Good consistency from beginning to end. Good value for the price. Would purchase this again 3 5 1
Robusto Good flavor with slightly more pepper than I like but overall a good smoke. I prefer Serious O and G but this one is fully acceptable. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best by far smooth and just all around great smoke. By far one of the best for price. I would recommend this cigar to anyone from a first timer to someone that have enjoyed cigar for a long time. 5 5 1
Robusto Good smoke nice spice and fresh tobacco flavor with an even burn and tight ash. Earthy and spicy. Very nice 4 5 1
Robusto Great smooth smoke enjoyed it thoroughly. Highly recommend it to all my friends. Long lasting. Nice draw. Good construction. Pleasant smell. 3 5 1

Robusto This is a superb smoke. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good robust full bodied cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent smoke with flavor throughout. Lots of sweet smooth smoke that goes very well with coffee or your favorite bourbon. Highly recommened as a true treat from Oliva. 5 5 1
Robusto Overall well done had nice coffee and some chocolate tones to it did get a bit bitter to the end of it 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto Outstanding cigar we all know what that is when we have one. Hard to find words to trully describe this one is the real deal. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 3 5 1
Robusto I've smoked a few of these and have enjoyed the flavor very much. Sweet cream tobacco and nuts. My only issue is on the last one I had the wrapper leaf cracked and came off 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke - need to give it some storage time to age it. Great draw - full but not harsh. A great go to smoke. i don't do chocolate coffee ....just do great smokes 4 5 1
Robusto I bought one of these beauties at a cigar store during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Like the Blackhawks they are a winner. It burned a little faster than what I like though. 3 5 1
Robusto Very rich flavor medium bodied cigar that stays consistent throughout the burn. Earthy full flavor with hints of spice and tar. Even burn. 4 5 1

Robusto Nice medium cigar. Beautiful aroma. Hint of cocoa upon igniting. Smooth all the way thru. The cigar burned evenly the whole way thru. I couldn't put it down. Upon finishing I craved another one. 3 5 1
Robusto Olivia makes rock solid stick point blank and this one is no exception to that. Great draw and pretty decent flavor. This will not let you down. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a fantastic smoke every one that I have tried I have thoroughly enjoyed. You can't go wrong choosing this tasty treat to sit back and relax with. Always a pleasure 5 5 1
Robusto It's a great stick definitely on the fuller side. It starts off slow but as you get to the 2nd third you'll get a pickup that is hard to be beat. Construction is always top notch. 4 5 1
Robusto Love this cigar every time i smoke it. Consistently smooth draw with flavors the buikd up as you smoke. Medium to moderate strength 5 5 1
Robusto Great cigar. Really appreciated the flavor and quality. Easy to smoke. Will definitely buy again the the future. 4 5 1
Robusto I walked in my local JR's for this specifically due to it being the cigar of the year. A bit steep on price but none the less a magnificent smoke. Although I prefer the Melanio maduro a bit more because I am more of a full bodied type guy I really did enjoy it. It was smooth and had excellent flavor. Had an even burn and I love the figurado shape 5 5 1
Robusto Real smooth cigar. Good draw and nice flavor throughout. Goes well with a good bourbon. Only ashed once so definitely has a steady burn to it 4 5 1
Robusto Nice cigar. Great draw..OK taste. Nice cigar for that time you just want to sit and not be bothered. 4 5 1

Robusto Very smooth and consistent smoke. A very nicely rolled stick with hints of spice/pepper and nutmeg mid way through. Finished very nice. 3 5 1
Robusto Great stick. Very nice pepper and spice up front then a nice mellow finish. I would love to try this cigar in a figurado but definitely one of my faves in robusto 5 5 1
Robusto I personally really enjoyed it. I found it to have a smokey flavor not to the level of a darker cigar such as a VSG or CAO Brazilia however still spicy and satisfying. I would compare to the taste/draw/finish of an A Fuente Best Seller / Short Story 3 5 1
Robusto Nice smoke really enjoyed. Perfect cigar to sit on the porch and smoke with some buddies or even by yourself if you don't have any buddies to smoke with 4 5 1
Robusto A good smoke with full flavor was very pleased with its a good on to kick back and relax with at the end of the day aslo it goes great with a nice cold beer 3 5 1
Robusto First class cigar -- I've never been a fan of Olvias but this one is great 4 5 1
Robusto It a great cigar! loads of flavor. I love to have this cigar with a cup of coffee. Flavors I got from this cigar were a pepper mix with a little of dark chocolate and the finish a cream. It had a little hay to it also. 3 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite sticks. The price is great and this is truly a great cigar. I try and smoke one of these at least once a day. 5 5 1
Robusto While it isn't my favorite this is a pleasurable smoke which I will definitely buy in the future. Definitely worth it. 3 5 1
Robusto This is a smooth and medium to mild flavored cigar never hot always a easy draw. I can't say anything bad about this cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto There's a reason why the Melanio was named Cigar of the Year! Albeit a different vitola.... This cigar is creamy smooth and well-balanced. Maybe a little light if you love full-bodied powerhouses but otherwise it's a phenomenal smoke! 5 5 1
Robusto Great stick top rated well constructed. This stick is packed full of flavor and spice. Full body stick. 4 5 1
Robusto Has a good flavor profile draw and a couple transistions im not a fan of the Price point think some places are a little high but just my opinion 4 5 1

Robusto Very great smoke I like the consistency it is very mild and went great with cognac I would recommend to anyone and I plan to keep in my humidor 4 5 1
Robusto Toast bread and dough to name some enjoyable flavors from this cigar. Beautiful construction and lovely ash. A cigar that is noteworthy of significance. 5 5 1
Robusto Olivia is one of my favorite brands and the Robusto is my favorite size. I would buy again. This Cigar has great flavor not to strong and not too mild. The cigar burns even and not too fast. It is one cigar that will always be in my humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto Although I prefer the torpedo when I have less time the robusto is great. Amazing wrapper. Great aroma! 5 5 1
Robusto Olive makes great cigars this one I'm not a big fan of it had it twice though maybe I had a bad one the first time but when I light the 2nd one same thing give it 4 out of 10 3 5 1
Robusto Starts out a little bit on the dry side but turns into a really flavorful smoke that lasts all the way to the end. Good matched up with a hoppy beer or a smooth bourbon. You will enjoy these. 3 5 1
Robusto I really enjoyed the V over the G. I'm a fan of leather chocolate and coffee flavors. Everything about this cigar worked for me. A solid smoke each and every time. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a very full bodied cigar with a very distinct smoke. I enjoyed it very much and I mostly smoke full bodied cigars. This is probably more for the long time aficionado than a beginner. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 2 5 1
Robusto This is actually only of my daily smokers! I love the tight construction of this cigar! Full of flavor and it just has a lot of different flavored you get from the filler and the wrapper it's a great mixture of all! 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke til the very end. Had great flavors nice even draw. I highly recommend it. I'm gonna smoke another one just because writing this made me crave one 5 5 1

Robusto These are great little smokes if you want a short smoke you can't go wrong here these taste great and are well made 5 5 1
Robusto This thing rates right up there with Padron! Deffinantly one for the ages. I don't think I have had a bad Oliva yet. 5 5 1
Robusto It is very mellow and flavorful cigar. The wrapper is tight and does not unravel as you smoke the cigar. The flavor stays consistently mellow from the first draw to final draw. 4 5 1
Robusto I found it to be a bit strong but suttle. I truly enjoy my cigars with a glass of whiskey I find this to be an amazing combination. 3 5 1
Robusto great cigar. One of top cigars on the market. Lovely chocolate and coffee flavor. The draw is wonderful. Just look at the ratings on cigar aficionado. It lists as one of the cigars of the year. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto No doubt one of my favorite cigars. Super smooth and has an amazing draw. I would love to buy a box if these. If you haven't tried it yet your missing out 5 5 1
Robusto I have smoked this cigar on several occasions. It has a good bold flavor. I taste a mixture of pepper and coffee after the first few draws. The draw is excellent. It is a little pricey but worth it I am writing this to get free chips 5 5 1
Robusto Decent enough smoke. Not one of my favorites. I would share one with novice smokers. I have a couple in my visitors humidor. The ones I received didn't burn evenly and were wrapped tighter toward the band. 3 5 1
Robusto Nice stick. Good value for the money. Not too mild but very smooth. Try this you will not be disappointed. 4 5 1
Robusto I mean this cigar is got to be in the top 5 in the world I mean it doesn't get any better its just well balanced well rounded full of everything you would want in a cigar. plus they have the Maduro It just increases the richness and flavor I mean you just can't look for anything any better it might be something that is as good but not better. Oliva just don't put out a bad cigar period. 5 5 1
Robusto There's a reason this was Cigar Aficionados #1 Cigar of 2014. The ranking is true as this smoke is superb. Amazing draw well constructed with a taste that's top notch. A good try for any enthusiast. 4 5 1
Robusto Good cigar I was really happy with it I enjoyed it's flavor while sitting on the back porch sipping on some good whiskey watching the sun go down 3 5 1
Robusto The Oliva Serie V is a beauty. This is one cigar you have to have in your humidor. The appearance flavor and burn are everything you'd expect from an Oliva. 5 5 1
Robusto Enjoyable smoke! The stick I had (did not come from JR) was a little tight to draw at first but opened up quickly and was smooth sailing from there! 4 5 1
Robusto This was honestly one of my favorite cigars I've smoked. It has a great draw that stays consistent throughout. The taste is smooth and I found that it doesn't leave the typical cigar taste in your mouth. This is a 5 star cigar that is highly recommended 5 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto Definitely one of the best sticks I've lit in its price range. A very smooth draw and an aroma that'll make your mouth water. 4 5 1
Robusto I don't usually smoke fuller body cigars but this one is fantastic if you like Olivia you need to try it 4 5 1
Robusto Very good draw and constuction. Flavor was pretty straight forward throughout with little change from 1st third to last 3rd of cigar. Medium for sure. One of my favorite offerings from Oliva.. 4 5 1
Robusto Great for special occasions. Cigar has great construction. Wrapper appears flawless and rustic although not quite as rustic as say a Padron. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the few that truly can be savored !! Magnificent! A perfect balance with some sweet notes very nicely priced as well for the quality. 4 5 1
Robusto It is my 2nd go to cigar after Drew Estates under crown. I usually go for the melanio maduro torpedo. Leathery and just gets smoother. Usually gets a little hot near the end though. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best cigar I smoked in a long while. I only smoke this stick on special occasions whether it's with the fellas or a good fortune that came up. You cannot go wrong this thus cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto Perfect cigar for all occasions. The flavor is what make this smoke stand out. I would recommend to anyone. 5 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto 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 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is artfully constructed which produces a fantastic burn. It is smooth yet bold with flavors of coffee with just a hint of pepper. This cigar will surely please. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. The Sumatra wrapper is seamlessly adhered the filler combination of Habano and Jalapa blend is very smooth. This cigar while expertly constructed has been priced at an exceptionally reasonable price point. Any cigar aficiando would fall head over heals for this cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Just fantastic. Nice full bodied cigar. It was fantastic. A personal favorite. Can't get enough of them. 5 5 1
Robusto Excellent burn smooth flavor. I received a box of these smokes from a friend (had not smoked these previously ) and was pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to more great deals so I can pick up a couple more boxes 4 5 1
Robusto A Very rich well balanced stick. From start to finish the flavors are consistent. I can see why it was picked as cigar of the year. BDefinately a must have in every humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto Milder than the regular blend but nice leathery notes slight pepper and great tight ash. I would consider smoking these on a regular basis if the price was better. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. The wrapper is well constructed with almost no visible veins. Very smooth. Tastes more on the medium side than full smooth thick smoke and a hint of spice. 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar was well worth the money. Easily one of the best cigars I've smoked this year. Perfect draw complex aromas. Outstanding!!! 4 5 1
Robusto Higher strength and good complexity from this box press. Earthy and floral tones are what I get here and this is certainly not a cigar that you want to smoke early in the day. Draw and construction are relatively good for a box press. Solid cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite cigars hands down. One of the few cigars I've bought a box of and plan on buying another. Definitely worth the cost IMHO. 4 5 1
Robusto Easily one of the greatest sticks I've had. They hit a home run when they introduced this stick. Do yourself a favor and try it out. 5 5 1
Robusto Oliva is all you need to know. This particular cigar does not disappoint nice and full with a wrapper beyond compare. 5 5 1
Robusto This a strong smoke. I am not sure that it is worthy of cigar of the year but it was a decent smoke 4 5 1
Robusto I'm a huge fan of these smokes while a few of them had some consitancy issues from the box I purchased overall they were 9/10 smokes for me. Great rich flavor and complex tasty notes of nut cocoa and some light coffee. Great when paired with a creamy vanilla root beer. 4 5 1
Robusto All around great smoke!! It's a cant go wrong pick.. Whatever size is a win! After smoking this I know why it was chosen as a top 5 cigar of the year... From the pre light draw down to the last puff solid smoke through and through 4 5 1
Robusto Was a very good smoke as usual from this maker. Just the right balance of spiciness and mellow. Lots of smoke the wife actuall thought the garage was on fire. Would recommend. 4 5 1
Robusto As noted construction was flawless. Not an overly complex smoke but good solid earthiness and leather throughout. Good smoke producer and perfect for someone who wants to step up from mild bodied cigars and expand their horizons. 4 5 1
Robusto I prefer the regular serie V and the serie V Maduro but this one is nice. Creamy smoke slightly sweet woody and a bit of pepper. 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 5 5 1
Robusto Great cigar. Seriously one of the best I've had in awhile. Sweet nutty taste through most of the cigar with an amazing draw. I can see why it was named cigar of the year for 2014 5 5 1
Robusto Surprisingly good olivia is a great label and this is no exception. I typically stay away frpm this price range but I'd smoke this cigar again no doubt 4 5 1
Robusto A nice medium body smoke with hints of floral bits and a lot of earth and coffee. The was little change as the stick progressed but averaged out as a good but forgettable smoke. I hope that with some age on the ones remaining in my humidor that it will advance to something more worthy of the reputation as #1 of 2015. 3 5 1
Robusto Very smooth medium bodied cigar. Good flavors throughout. Well constructed nice and easy draw. Consistent burn. 4 5 1
Robusto I like it Its a good cigar with good flavor what can I say it better than most I've had. I like it with tequila or a good ale beer. This is a all around good cigar with good wood falover I like it after a long day of work or golf game. Can't say more about it only that I enjoy it. 3 5 1
Robusto Love this cigar well worthy of all the good reviews that it has received. Great draw excellent flavor to the nub never burnt hot or got bitter all the way to the nub definitely not a yard gar take your time enjoy with a glass of blanton's if you can get it 5 5 1
Robusto Great smoke. Nice even draw all the way to the end. A real pleasure fore any cigar smoker. great job JR Cigar! 3 5 1

Robusto Amazing stick that I can't recommend enough. Perfect draw very rich flavors smooth and creamy with a little pepper zing a must try! 4 5 1
Robusto Beautiful construction and a wonderful dark and sweet flavor. One of my favorites especially for the price. I cannot say enough good things about these. They are my favourite smoke put out by Oliva.x 5 5 1

Robusto Super smooth. Great morning cigar with coffee. Light and easy good smoke prduction even burn as well. 4 5 1
Robusto This was a fantastic smooth cigar. Consistently kept it's flavor throughout the smoke. Did not sour toward the end of the smoke like a lot of cigars. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto Great smoke and wonderfully rolled. Very smooth and tasteful. The draw was immaculate and one of the better cigars I have had. Definitely recommend it and will try again. 3 5 1
Robusto Being a beginner with cigars I was hesitant to spend the money on this stick. I can honestly say it was well worth the money. A full flavored cigar that is not overpowering and can be easily smoked by those who prefer a more mild-med strength smoke. Highly recommend! 5 5 1
Robusto A wonderful smoke that is nice to enjoy with a fine bourban...J.R. has proven to me that they carry the largest selection of cigars; plus their customer service is outstanding!!! 4 5 1
Robusto I got 3 of these as a birthday present and they were excellent! Good draw stays lit and nice flavour! 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is a little mild. The construction held together very well. But it's consistency was misleading. 3 5 1
Robusto Full body with big bold flavors of earth and spice. Super smooth pleasant mouth feel. Big strength kick though. 4 5 1
Robusto Tried one of these on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised. It was mild the draw was nice and there was no burn problems. I would try these again 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto I was surprised with the thick ash the aroma and the flavor for the price I recommend this cigar for anyone who wants a good cigar or stock up their humidor 4 5 1
Robusto Fairly nice cigar. The taste was very earthy with some nutmeg flavored in the back of it. The draw was a bit too smooth for my tastes I like alittle resistance. Overall pretty good 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Very nice and excellent flavor. Very well made and had a nice finish. Fits well with a scotch and poker night. 4 5 1
Robusto I really enjoyed this cigar. Full flavored and full bodied. Lots of deep rich flavor a along with a nice leathery undertone. the burn was razor sharp and the ash held perfectly. 5 5 1
Robusto Not a fan of Oliva in general but you can't dent their quality.But this stick this stick is different a cut above. I've smoked 3 so far and all 3 have been identical in all forms a truly enjoyable a pleasant smoke. Expertly mixes strength with flavor and smoothness I can't wait to smoke another. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a fabulous breakfast cigar I've been smoking cigars in the morning for years and this is my new go to breakfast smoke 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is a must for any aspiring aficionado or current. The draw is a bit on the tight side but that's what I like anyways and it doesent go out like other cigars. 4 5 1
Robusto Great taste and lasted long. It was a great deal in it when I got it and I told many people to try it. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best cigars I have ever had. It had great flavor. Very tight roll. Great little smoke impeccably even burn and medium-full flavor profile. Leather wood and chocolate with touches of marzipan from time to time. Limited spiciness. 4 5 1
Robusto Smooth as glass! Coffee notes and dark chocolate. Some white pepper and a slight sweetness on the long finish! Great smoke !! 5 5 1
Robusto Ok cigar. A little too vigorous for my taste. Started out nice but turned to spicy toward the end. Overall an good to ok 3 5 1

Robusto Great construction nice smooth draw great flavorwonderful clouds of white gray smoke with a great aroma another perfect stick in the Oliva family 4 5 1
Robusto It's very tasty! Oliva makes very solid smokes nothing super complex. I'd probably smoke another i probably wouldn't buy a fiver of them though. They're good but nothing I'd pick up unless I was given it. 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto One of the most flavorful cigars I have ever smoked sweet chocolate coffee little pepper creamy as they come well worth the price and all the hype 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is great it has a classic taste And Is less feeling everyone should atleast try 1 or 2 the price is well worth it JR is the greatest for giving us such great prices 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto This is one delicious smoke. Start to finish great flavors right back to the nub. Needless to say the construction and draw were perfect. A very enjoyable cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto I love everything about this cigar it smokes we'll taste perfect and is by far one of my favorite cigars I have bought plenty of them in the past and will keep buying them in bulk if you love slow smoking cigars this is by far the best it is pretty cheap if you ask me if you also like great tobacco taste this is one of the best tasting cigars I have bought in the past 4 years you'll love it I promise 5 5 1

Robusto An awesome smoke. A creamy and flavorful cigar that has a spicy and woodsy flavor. A little expensive and very hard to find now so not an everyday smoke. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 3 5 1

Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Earns its take hints of chocolate and pockets of spice. Pepper made an appearance about 15 minutes into the cigar. Medium-full. 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent wrapper draw and flavor profile. On the fuller side of what I like well it's just full bodied all the way around. Olivia doesn't produce many bad sticks. 4 5 1
Robusto Wifey got me a couple from a local store. Good smooth smoke with an even burn and easy draw. 4 5 1
Robusto the draw was slightly tight on the 2 I smoked but that did not stop this from being a great cigar! Medium- full to full strength and an overall tasty treat! 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke! Olivias are some of the most consistat cigars ive ever had. Each cigar is just like the last. And in this case thats a good thing. Produces a nice white ash with razer sharp burn line 4 5 1
Robusto 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 5 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Very enjoyable medium bodied smoke. Spicey with a bitter cocoa through the finish but not so much that it would scare one away. Good smoke 4 5 1
Robusto I love everything about this stick. Great flavors and excellent construction. Lots of peppery goodness along with a wonderful cocoa flavor. 4 5 1
Robusto Great flavor and experience over all. I had some construction issues but not so bad to not smoke again. 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Good cigar but I feel like the flavor could have been a bit richer especially in a Maduro. Would buy it again however. 4 5 1
Robusto Very solid stick. Very creamy but just a touch of spice. Very different from the regular serie V but good none the less. I would recommend a fiver to pretty much any cigar smoker. Get it! 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto I really liked the Oliva Serie V. Nice draw confident great flavor and great price on JR as well. Oliva always makes quality smokes. 4 5 1

Robusto Very smooth and enjoyable smoke at a great price. 5 5 1
Robusto This is one of my all time favorites,both natural and Maduro. Everything about it says perfection,from the gorgeous wrapper to the razor sharp burn. It’s a rich flavorful smoke with touches of leather,pepper and coffee. This one I will buy again and again. 5 5 1
Robusto Excellent après le repas. Fumeur occasionnel j'apprécie ce cigare en alternance avec le Davidoff 2000. Dans lignée des bons cigares. Ne se consume pas trop vite. Accompagne très bien un whisky JURA. 4 5 1

Robusto smoked my first last evening a day after its delivery and I was in heaven. This cigar was incredible from start to finish. 5 5 1
Robusto I know people are obsessed with this for some reason but I really do not understand what all the hype's about. They're rated extremely well too which is weird. I don't think the taste is anything special in any way shape or form. The build quality on the other hand is gorgeous. 4 5 1
Robusto Delicious cigar. Sometimes you can find good deals on the box of 10. Flavors of spice chocolate and toast. Favors change as you smoke. Really great experience. Wish I could smoke more often. 5 5 1

Robusto This is really Good cigar! Oliva V is my favourite. I LOVE this taste..and lenght. Construction and consistency are perfect! 5 5 1
Robusto Purchased a box of 10 and I'm thoroughly satisfied. The Oliva Serie V Melanio is among my favorites. Great cigar at a great price JR Cigars even threw in 10 free Oliva cigars with my purchase! (5 serie O robustos 5 Nub CT's). My only complaint is that it says it comes with 2 boveda packs but someone must've forgotten to throw them in when packaging my order. It's a slight complaint and the 10 free cigars makes up for it. I'm happy with my purchase it's just that I don't have a humidor of my own and wanted to keep em as fresh as possible. I'll be purchasing more Melanio's for sure. 5 5 1
Robusto This has been one of my favorites for a while now. Great smoke! 5 5 1
Robusto First time trying these will order again. 5 5 1
Robusto The series v in the robusto is so good o have to say prob the best ive jad on a long time 4 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite cigars very outstanding great flavor burns evenly just an outstanding cigar a must try 5 5 1
Robusto Nice well balanced smoke. Excellent blend of flavors that build as you smoke the cigar and it has the near perfect draw that is not too tight but not just openly allowing smoke to flow without the pull. 4 5 1
Robusto These are excellent cigars with great full flavor and smooth draw. Can't beat jr prices...I'll be back 5 5 1
Robusto The oliva serie v Melanie is a top rated cigar and I like getting them for a reasonable price from jrcigar. Always great service. Always fast delivery. 5 5 1
Robusto If you like the regular V as much as I do this will be a real treat. It's definitely worth the price tag that comes with it. Not for a daily smoke but a real treat. 5 5 1
Robusto This in my opinion is a flawless cigar. Super smooth medium to full bodied with complex flavors. It pairs well with anything. After smoking several of them it became the first cigar to be good enough to be box worthy. 5 5 1
Robusto This is my preferred size and I cannot say anything bad about this cigar since it is on my top list 5 5 1
Robusto The V meliano is an excellent blend with pepper spice and chocolatey cream notes with coffee and caramel. This is a delicious cigar no matter what size 5 5 1
Robusto Overall this is a perfect cigar. Can't be in the cigar world without thinking this is a great cigar in all sizes. 5 5 1
Robusto I expected an excellent smoke given the reviews. Upon receipt I was impressed. That moment was brief as the experience was bitter and lacking character. The smoke output was somewhat decent; aroma presented as stale. I find it surprising that it was voted best of 2014. They're awful. I now am reminded to stick with the tried and true. Monte Rocky and Bolivar are consistently satisfying; lesson learned. 1 5 1
Robusto Great taste for morning or when ever every day all day cigar long lasting slow burn great taste will buy more 5 5 1
Robusto The Melanio in natural is amazing! I love the cocoa and leather. It's a full bodied smoke with amazing dessert like flavors to enjoy. 5 5 1
Robusto Velvety smooth aged tobacco taste. Truly a well balanced medium-full profile and strength.. How long will this box last?.. 6 months + 2 weeks... 6 months to ripen and 2 weeks for smoking :) 5 5 1
Robusto I dont feel like the robusto burns as evenly as the churchill on a consistent bases but it still has all the same great flavors! 5 5 1

Robusto Any melanio will be a fantastic smoke. This is good when you don't have a lot of time. Full flavor. Well constructed. I smoked thru the entire cigar without having to relight. Grab them now while you can get a ten cigar sampler free with your purchase! 5 5 1
Robusto Full of flavor! I prefer the Churchill but don't always have the time to smoke it and this is perfect when I don't have a long time. JRCigars sweetened the deal by adding 10 other olivas with this box! A great cigar well worth the price! 5 5 1
Robusto I love this stick. My favorite. Hints of cream! 2015 cigar of the century for sure! Buy them now and ender look back 5 5 1

Robusto Oliva is a great smoke and this stick lives up to that. This cigar has very mellow notes and smokes evenly all the way through. Very reasonably priced so I would suggest you pick up one and give it a try 3 5 1
Robusto Olivia will never disappoint you with their line of smoke ....a lot more flavor than the average comparison 4 5 1
Robusto There is a reason that this cigar got cigar of the year for 2014. Lighter than the normal V its got a nice smooth bite. Great ash. And smoked for a little over an hour. So good a bought a 10 count box 5 5 1
Robusto I found that the cigar was packed very tightly which for me produced a difficult draw with little smoke output 3 5 1

Robusto I recently got this in a JRs sampler bundle. I liked it because it is a smaller cigar that I found to not be too overwhelming.

Also I really liked the construction... held its shape during the smoke better that a lot other cigars that would atart falling apart mid smoke... 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar is amazing a lot of spice in the beginning which really smoothed out toward the last third of the cigar. I personally had a torpedo which is my favorite roll. I highly recommend this cigar. 5 5 1

Robusto Name says it all robusto! A hearty smoke but not to stout that it would awaken an episode of Tales From The Crypt but strong enough to compete with the glass of Makers Mark on rocks you have in the other hand. 3 5 1

Robusto Nice draw great smoke. Light flavor first third builds to cream with a little spice at end. Good construction firm roll. Wrapper deconstructed a little on mine maybe it was a bad cut. The whole cigar was a pleasurable experience I just wish I didn't have to spend the money for this think there are comparable smokes on the lower end of the price range. 3 5 1

Robusto Great cigar smooth and consistent. Nice size. Rich tones. It was in my humidor for a quite some time. Huge fan of Olivia's line of cigars. 5 5 1
Robusto Decent little cigar with little taste but constructed well! Good for on a golf course or on the road! 3 5 1
Robusto Wonderful stick. Great aroma I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I even got My wife to try this one and she liked this one and she don't smoke that often. 3 5 1
Robusto The Olivia series V is the dominant cigar of the oliva series. Great brand great cigar great amok great time. 4 5 1
Robusto Dear god where to start on the oliva v series an absolutely amazing cigar. One of the top five cigars I've ever had. There is a legitimate reason this cigar is rated so highly. The draw and construction are among the best I've ever seen or had the pleasure of smoking. The cigar is a full body cigar but the flavor profiles is so expertly crafted you don't even notice. I smoked this cigar all the way to the point it was burning my finger tips and I was still sad to put it down. 5 5 1
Robusto I enjoyed this cigar from beginning to the nub. Smooth almost nutty and light spice finish. A great cigar after a long day. 4 5 1
Robusto Good igar with a nice even burn and good consistency. It smokes for a long time so be prepared for a long t to ime of smoking. Im sure all will like this cigar. 3 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite Olivia cigars. It burned clean all the way to the end and had great flavor though out the entire stick 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Very good cigar from start to finish. ..I was a little disappointed the first time I smoked one because I was comparing it to the series V ..this cigar is great in its own right but definitely not as full as the original series V.. 4 5 1
Robusto Thought this was a good cigar for a person who only smokes them occasionally. I thought that they were well priced and tasted good. I will be buying these in the future and my friends will be as well. 3 5 1
Robusto I forgot my cigars when I went to a weekly poker game. The house was kind enough to give me one of these cigars. Very flavorful. Just a hint of leather coffee and nuts. Unfortunately it had a tendency to run. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 5 5 1
Robusto Was okay not sure I would give it another shot. Might not have been my style or maybe I expected too much 3 5 1
Robusto Smooth yet full of spice and flavor with some hints of floral a very easy smoke and a favorite Nicaraguan. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a very good cigar the only one that's better I think is the O series good draw lots of flavor and a good looking cigar good price for the quality 4 5 1
Robusto Theres a reason this was number one! I personally prefer the maduro version but its a great stick. Wish i could smoke one every day but the price is just too high😭 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 5 5 1
Robusto Good smoke with great draw and solid construction. Flavor was on par and not too strong. Burn was a little uneven but that was probably my fault. Worth every last puff 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent smoke - right down to the nub - a friend gave me one and after an hour in a half it was just ash - and I wanted more! Great cigar in all categories 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar was one of the first I've ever smoked and it was excellent. Consistent throughout with a bold flavor. A mainstay in my humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent great tasting cigar. Good burn good draw perfect for that time you need to sit back and let your cares float away. 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke. Lighter than I normally go but with plenty of flavor and a little spice. Nicely tingly on the retro hale while not overpowering. Very even burn and a delightful smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent excellent excellent smoke. I'm no expert with picking out different flavors and changes in a cigar but this one is thoroughly enjoyable. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto Smoke was good overall but it burned a little odd during my smoke. Flavor was a little harsh in beginning but smoothed out to a fine smoke. 3 5 1
Robusto Full-bodied and full-flavored. You may taste notes of black pepper bread or unsweetened cocoa. You might also notice some toast or coffeedlavors on the finish. 3 5 1
Robusto I loved this cigar! Well constructeddraw stayed consistent the whole way through plenty of smoke no hot spots even burn and fantastic flavor. Every Oliva I've tried has been amazing steady rotation in my humidir 5 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto Got these as a gift and wasn't sure what to expect. I was not disappointed. This even flavored and full bodied cigar did have a tight draw but offered a satisfying smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto A great cigar worth all of the great reviews. Satifing full body smoke. Great after a good meal. Would definitely recommend these. 4 5 1
Robusto Oliva is one of my favorite cigars to smoke. I like the O serie but the Serie V Melanio Robusto has a nice smooth pull with a hint of pepper spice. Very delightful cigar for the smoking occasion. 3 5 1
Robusto Good cigar box press was fine I liked the feel. Light colored chocolate wrapper. Even burn. Taste was peppery with some mild spices. This cigar is mmmm good 3 5 1
Robusto A good solid smoke. Very well made good draw very handsome. Nice size. Won't take an afternoon to smoke. Tastes good too. 4 5 1
Robusto This is top of the line. This is what you want in a smoke. A nice consistent draw and flavor. Bold but balanced. Overall great cigar 4 5 1
Robusto One of my favorite go to cigars. Definitely in my humidor at all times. It has a nice leathery wrapper and a medium to full body smoke start to finish is great! 5 5 1

Robusto This cigar is a solid addition to any collection. It is not something that will wow you but I guarantee that you will enjoy it from time to time. 3 5 1
Robusto These happen to be my go to cigar. A little pricey but well worth the money. The cigar starts and end smooth a bit spivey off the bat but mellows out as you go. 5 5 1
Robusto Series V Olivo is one of the best out there. Very consistent with complex flavors. Would definately get this one again. 4 5 1
Robusto bought a box of Robustos and let them sit for 35 days and decided to smoke my first one on the 4th of July. Easily one of the best cigars I have smoked. The only thing I didn't like is that it didn't last longer. I decided to fix that problem and go with a box of churchills on my next purchase;) Great taste and huge amounts of smoke with a near perfect burn and draw. You can't go wrong here. 4 5 1
Robusto Is truly an exceptional smoke. It was worth every penny. I highly recommend it. Have a smooth even pull and has enough power behind it to make it a great after dinner cigar! 5 5 1
Robusto Draw felt tight beautiful cigar very tasty earthy leathery full bodied smoke Not for a beginner Priced just right 4 5 1
Robusto Such a perfect stick and to me the robusto is the perfect size as well. There is no reason this one should never be in stock in your rotation!! 5 5 1
Robusto Good smoke interesting flavors. Best size after the figurado. Pricey but worth the money. Maduro excellent as well. 4 5 1
Robusto Solid cigar and well worth the price. Bought a box for the golf course. Like mild more than medium but this was good for a medium for sure. 4 5 1
Robusto Great stick but I prefer the torpedo over the rubusto. I feel that to get the most enjoyment out of this paricular series you need a longer smoke. Even though it was shorter it was enjoyable regardless. This is only my opinion as you can't go wrong with this cigar 5 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto I was with my neighbor while HE was smoking this. The aromatics were very pleasant. nice earthy and not to intense. I have to try this for myself. he kept satin how good this was. now I haVe to try. 4 5 1
Robusto Full body easy drawstays lit but by the time I got half way whewww I felt queezy and lightheaded but I was prewarned before I bought it that it kinda makes you a little messed up 4 5 1
Robusto Great for relaxing and camping. Wrapping was very nice and great combination of flavors. I was able to get a leather and tobacco flavor right off the bat but towards the end was able to taste a little spice. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best Oliva cigars I've ever smoked. Great taste and good even burn. Nice mild flavor that I would definitely recommend to friends and family! 4 5 1
Robusto Amazing smoke. Smooth draw from beginning to end. This is one of my go to cigars after a long day of work. Would recommend to anyone looking for a smooth cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Great full flavor cigar. Great flavor lasts throughout. Starts great and gets even better. Wonderful smoke! 4 5 1
Robusto Very well constructed and overall a great cigar. Picked one up in a shop in Seattle and had a good time smoking it. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 3 5 1
Robusto I'm more of a full bodies smoker but I enjoyed the mild flavors of the Serie V. It's an excellent smoke and worth picking up. 4 5 1
Robusto Oliva Serie is a very nice cigar. It's very mild and the taste is very pleasant. My friends introduced this cigar to me and when I tried the the first time I must say I really liked it so it's a must try!! 4 5 1
Robusto I am not a fan of the box pressed cigars however this one was an exception. The cigar had a great taste throughout the entire stick. Burned great razor sharp. The draw was perfect. Very enjoyable 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke! I would recommend this stick for a good relaxing day. Good draw and well constructed. Buy a box today! 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is top notch. Excellent construction color and initial smell. For me the leather and coffee stood out. A lingering sweet caramel as well. Very even burn draw was smooth and slow. Lots of other nuances as well. 5 5 1
Robusto It was a good smoke. It burnt consistently tasted good throughout. It wasn't a smoke however that I would smoke until my fingers burnt because I got kind of bored with the flavor towards the end. I would give it another try though 3 5 1
Robusto Not a bad smoke . It has a smooth draw. Great to share with friends. I would recamend these to anyone 2 5 1
Robusto Smooth draw with an excellent construction excellent finish. I have enjoyed this with a smooth bourbon. Don't pair it with anything that will overpower it. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best you can get. Burn draw construction flavor all surpassed even high expectations for me. Never have had a bad one you won't forget this cigar. Get some! 5 5 1
Robusto An outstanding cigar with spicy and cedar notes abound. Construction and draw was flawless. I did have to touch up the cigar to burn evenly at the start but I blame a lighter I've never used before. 4 5 1
Robusto Fantastic cigar great taste!! Burns really well can smoke these every day. A+ I would recommend this to everyone. 5 5 1
Robusto Superior quality just like I had expected from this brand. Full of flavor its def a medium-full to full flavored. 4 5 1
Robusto Smooth nutty cigar with a great full flavor. Oliva's V series hasn't failed me yet...for those of you who appreciate the lancero size the Oliva V lancero is my favorite Oliva cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto This medium-full flavored cigar is yummy delicious. I have experienced some tight draw sticks. But overall flavor is there. 3 5 1
Robusto I absolutely like this cigar it tastes great and pairs up with just about anything. Its a great everyday cigar I recommend this to everyone. I will be definitely getting more of these. 5 5 1
Robusto Great cigar for the $! The presentation is nice and it is a great tasting cigar. The boxes are a flat 10ct presentation. 4 5 1
Robusto A nice full bodied cigar. A little bit stronger than what I typically smoke but a favorite for when I only want to smoke one cigar during an evening. The Oliva Series cigars are always satisfying. 3 5 1
Robusto Tightly wound feels great smells good smaller than it looks in the catalogue or on the web... Burns long 3 5 1
Robusto This cigar was no doubtingly a contender fir cigar of the year. It was top 5 in my book. The flavor is phenomenal. The burn and draw are top notch. Their isn't too many bad things you can say about it. No.1 maybe not but extremely solid. 4 5 1
Robusto I paired this excat cigar with a few glasses of moscow gold vodka and redbull. Great taste and draw but made me break out in hives. Would love to try the cigar again without the drinks. 4 5 1
Robusto It had a very good draw burned evenly throughout the whole stick held a nice ash nice tasting with a creamy finish. 4 5 1
Robusto Very smooth draw with layered flavoring of nutty and earthly tones. The finish is as smooth as the start with an even burn. 4 5 1
Robusto Wonderful smoke definitely worth every penny . Chock full of dry woody oak flavors medium full to full great taste all the way to the end . Biggest complaint is that it doesn't last longer ! 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best cigars I've smoked in a long time. Great smoke with a great full body taste. Even burn to the very end. Smoke one today 4 5 1
Robusto No complaints. Ok cigar it's not my cup of tea but not bad. Worth trying if you're looking for something different. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a cigar that anyone could smoke and greatly enjoy. Great price for this stick that I could fire up any evening and savor. 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto An interesting flavor may turn away some folks but probably one of the best cigars out there. This cigar is loved by many smokers and is one of the best Olivas out there! Which is saying something... 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke one of my favorite. Great with Tawny Port. It’s definitely my favorite out of the Oliva line. I love the spice that it offers up. A nice big powerful stick is always easy to smoke. 5 5 1
Robusto It's deft smooth cigar and a great price point for the smoke. I smoke this with a nice glass of tauny port and the two go great together. 3 5 1
Robusto Anything from the Olivia series V is going to be a good choice in my book. Had a small issue with wrapper separation but the rest made up for it! 4 5 1
Robusto The Olivia v was a very flavorful smoke with great construction notes of earth leather and coco abound buy them 4 5 1
Robusto The Oliva Serie V Melanio Robusto is a robust fantastic smoke. The suttle note of chocolate and the hint of nuttiness fulfilled my taste buds. The clean light smoke also made for an enjoyable smoking atmosphere. I will partake in the Oliva again. 4 5 1
Robusto Long and double-tapered with box-pressed edges and perfect combustion. Full bodied and smooth big leather notes complement a range of coffee caramel and wood. 5 5 1
Robusto I am not really a big fan of Oliva but I really enjoyed this cigar; not too powerful medium body. This cigar was tasty and produced plenty of smoke. 4 5 1
Robusto It was very good . Lots of flavor . The construction was excellent and the burn was nice. I would recommend it . 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto I went through a box of these and enjoyed every puff as if it was my last. Perfect balance of flavors and spice. This is how a cigar should taste. 5 5 1
Robusto I smoked the Olivia once as a gift from my friend much better than I thought. Draw was decent and put off good amount of smoke . Held ash pretty good 4 5 1
Robusto Very nice and consistent smoke. Good flavor but not overpowering. Clean draw and it didn't come apart in my hand. 4 5 1
Robusto Absolutely amazing. Better than the serie v! It has the same intensity but a more complex flavor. Beautiful in every single way 4 5 1
Robusto A beautiful full bodied cigar that keeps you interested from start to finish. It's no surprise it was ranked the number 1 cigar by cigar afficianado for 2014 5 5 1
Robusto The Olivia Series V Melanio is a well constructed good full bodied Nicaragua cigar. It has hints of leather caramel unsweetened cocoa wood and coffee. It is full bodied and full flavored. It has an Ecuadorian sumatra leaf wrapper that is thick oily and seamless. It has an easy draw . 3 5 1
Robusto Creamy spicy flavors. Always a solid choice however I'd buy more of them if they weren't so expensive 4 5 1
Robusto Ostentatious yet not overbearing. Notes of tannin hickory and pepper. Must be lit with fire source to enable smoking. 3 5 1
Robusto I was given a box of these as a gift. Only real problem I had with it was the draw but otherwise a decent cigar. 3 5 1
Robusto Good cigar nice smoke draw was a little different. Overall I would not exo ext anything less from Oliva cigars they seem to be fairly consistent. 4 5 1
Robusto The wrapper felt a little delicate but it did not take away from this smoke. Complex smooth and wonderful burn. Can't go wrong here. 5 5 1
Robusto Love this stick. The Melanio especially has a very smooth profile. For the price one of my favorite cigars. 3 5 1
Robusto Really tasty. Very consistent all the way through. The sungrown wrapper adds a bit of spice and nuttiness that the original V didn't quite have. 4 5 1
Robusto One of my favorite cigars. Nice and creamy with almost a taste of peanut butter and chocolate really a must try cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Great cigar. Very peppery taste but extremely smooth. Runs somewhere in the medium strength. Good construction and draw and ample smoke production. 4 5 1
Robusto Cheaper than my Liga Privada #9's and in my opinion a better tasting smoke. Soooo smooth & consistant down to the nub. Named CA's Cigar of the Year '14 wouldn't waste any time grabbing a box before they sell out or raise the price or both. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto Not sure if I got a bad stick but I was expecting more from this cigar. It was recommended to me by the local cigar shop so I purchased a stick. Seemed harsh at the beginning but did settle down. 3 5 1
Robusto Fantastic cigar with wonderful nutty and spice notes. Complex in its profile from beginning to end. I was very skeptical of this cigar but it really impressed me. 4 5 1
Robusto Great flavorful smoke but inconsistent with the wrapper burn. Would definitely smoke Olivia again but the ones I got may force me to look for another kind 4 5 1
Robusto Bought a single at a local cigar loungeGreat cigar. Smooth great burn. Even better than the original V. Will buy and smoke again. 5 5 1
Robusto Having smoked a few of these I can say without a doubt a great stick. I prefer mine punched and they have great draw and full flavor. Razor sharp burn line with noted of leather and a nutty finish. Great stick if you can find them! 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar has a lot of complexity but consistent quality throughout. Expect a thrilling experience at the finish as the flavor creates a big splash at the end. Full-bodied cigar with lots to offer. Don't miss it! 4 5 1
Robusto Very oily and tasty treat. There is good reason that a Melanio series V is the reigning cigar of the year. If you haven't tried one of these stop cheating yourself and get your hands on some ASAP! 5 5 1
Robusto Fantastic smoke almost impossible to get at my local shops it seems. But they are cheaper here anyways! 4 5 1
Robusto It was a real good smoke i like the way it burn the draw on was was ok it was constructed was nice. It had a real nice burn to it . 4 5 1
Robusto A great medium to full bodied smoke with lots of flavor ! Definitely not an every day smoke due to the price but a cigar I would smoke again. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the most flavorful cigars I have ever smoked. It a at in my humidor for nearly a year which may have helped as well. Highly recommended. 5 5 1
Robusto I did enjoy this smoke. Had excellent flavor but wasn't always consistent. The aroma was nice and a very beautiful burn and ash. Will buy again. 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto Good stick for the price...i prefer the Serie G but this stick is proper nonetheless...Worthy of a few slots in the humidor 3 5 1
Robusto Quality cigar I would smoke again flavor did seem to change from cigar to cigar though. I would recommend everyone give it a try in a smaller size of possible. 4 5 1
Robusto I smoked this one when I was just starting to get into cigars. Definitely had a great draw to it and burned evenly throughout its entirety. Although I did like the smoke it was a little too strong for me at the time and left me lightheaded. 4 5 1
Robusto Good smoke nice spice and fresh tobacco flavor with an even burn and tight ash. Earthy and spicy. Very nice 4 5 1
Robusto Could nnot ask for any better....... grate smoke over all. What a grate draw on them. Packed well.. 4 5 1
Robusto Great smooth smoke enjoyed it thoroughly. Highly recommend it to all my friends. Long lasting. Nice draw. Good construction. Pleasant smell. 3 5 1
Robusto One of the best by far smooth and just all around great smoke. By far one of the best for price. I would recommend this cigar to anyone from a first timer to someone that have enjoyed cigar for a long time. 5 5 1
Robusto Good flavor with slightly more pepper than I like but overall a good smoke. I prefer Serious O and G but this one is fully acceptable. 4 5 1
Robusto Great all around cigar. These are a must have in my humidor. I've smoked quite a few of these cigars and they never disappoint. Perfect for a summer evening in the back yard with a double scotch neat. 5 5 1
Robusto Great cigar with a nice flavor. Good consistency from beginning to end. Good value for the price. Would purchase this again 3 5 1
Robusto A truly beautiful smoke. Rich flavor good smoke. Oliva has always been a consistently good brand. I think I'll go smoke one right now! 4 5 1

Robusto This cigar was wonderful light taste to start beautiful transition as it goes on with steady taste leaving you satisfied and happy with your purchase! 4 5 1
Robusto 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 4 5 1
Robusto This is a superb smoke. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good robust full bodied cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Overall well done had nice coffee and some chocolate tones to it did get a bit bitter to the end of it 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 3 5 1
Robusto I've smoked a few of these and have enjoyed the flavor very much. Sweet cream tobacco and nuts. My only issue is on the last one I had the wrapper leaf cracked and came off 4 5 1
Robusto Outstanding cigar we all know what that is when we have one. Hard to find words to trully describe this one is the real deal. 4 5 1
Robusto Great smoke - need to give it some storage time to age it. Great draw - full but not harsh. A great go to smoke. i don't do chocolate coffee ....just do great smokes 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto I bought one of these beauties at a cigar store during the Stanley Cup playoffs. Like the Blackhawks they are a winner. It burned a little faster than what I like though. 3 5 1
Robusto Rich tobaccos flavors with pepper and hints of creaminess coffee cocoa cedar high med/full profile with a great balance and complexity and slightly sweet chewy finish...great smoke from Oliva. 5 5 1
Robusto Very rich flavor medium bodied cigar that stays consistent throughout the burn. Earthy full flavor with hints of spice and tar. Even burn. 4 5 1
Robusto Nice medium cigar. Beautiful aroma. Hint of cocoa upon igniting. Smooth all the way thru. The cigar burned evenly the whole way thru. I couldn't put it down. Upon finishing I craved another one. 3 5 1

Robusto Great burn and draw and a very distinct flavor to it he copious smoke that came off this cigar. Burnt peanuts caramel and smooth cream 4 5 1
Robusto Olivia makes rock solid stick point blank and this one is no exception to that. Great draw and pretty decent flavor. This will not let you down. 4 5 1
Robusto Love this cigar every time i smoke it. Consistently smooth draw with flavors the buikd up as you smoke. Medium to moderate strength 5 5 1
Robusto One of my favorites. It's a good stick. Nice flavor not too bold. Good smoke after a round on the links. 4 5 1
Robusto It's a great stick definitely on the fuller side. It starts off slow but as you get to the 2nd third you'll get a pickup that is hard to be beat. Construction is always top notch. 4 5 1
Robusto Great cigar. Really appreciated the flavor and quality. Easy to smoke. Will definitely buy again the the future. 4 5 1
Robusto Nice cigar. Great draw..OK taste. Nice cigar for that time you just want to sit and not be bothered. 4 5 1
Robusto I walked in my local JR's for this specifically due to it being the cigar of the year. A bit steep on price but none the less a magnificent smoke. Although I prefer the Melanio maduro a bit more because I am more of a full bodied type guy I really did enjoy it. It was smooth and had excellent flavor. Had an even burn and I love the figurado shape 5 5 1
Robusto Real smooth cigar. Good draw and nice flavor throughout. Goes well with a good bourbon. Only ashed once so definitely has a steady burn to it 4 5 1
Robusto One of Olivia's great smokes... good price for this cigar with nice spice and flavor. I enjoy this cigar on the golf course and after a rough day at work. Great draw. 4 5 1
Robusto Very smooth and consistent smoke. A very nicely rolled stick with hints of spice/pepper and nutmeg mid way through. Finished very nice. 3 5 1
Robusto Great stick. Very nice pepper and spice up front then a nice mellow finish. I would love to try this cigar in a figurado but definitely one of my faves in robusto 5 5 1
Robusto I personally really enjoyed it. I found it to have a smokey flavor not to the level of a darker cigar such as a VSG or CAO Brazilia however still spicy and satisfying. I would compare to the taste/draw/finish of an A Fuente Best Seller / Short Story 3 5 1
Robusto It a great cigar! loads of flavor. I love to have this cigar with a cup of coffee. Flavors I got from this cigar were a pepper mix with a little of dark chocolate and the finish a cream. It had a little hay to it also. 3 5 1

Robusto This is a smooth and medium to mild flavored cigar never hot always a easy draw. I can't say anything bad about this cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto There's a reason why the Melanio was named Cigar of the Year! Albeit a different vitola.... This cigar is creamy smooth and well-balanced. Maybe a little light if you love full-bodied powerhouses but otherwise it's a phenomenal smoke! 5 5 1
Robusto Has a good flavor profile draw and a couple transistions im not a fan of the Price point think some places are a little high but just my opinion 4 5 1

Robusto Olivia is one of my favorite brands and the Robusto is my favorite size. I would buy again. This Cigar has great flavor not to strong and not too mild. The cigar burns even and not too fast. It is one cigar that will always be in my humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto Olive makes great cigars this one I'm not a big fan of it had it twice though maybe I had a bad one the first time but when I light the 2nd one same thing give it 4 out of 10 3 5 1
Robusto I really enjoyed the V over the G. I'm a fan of leather chocolate and coffee flavors. Everything about this cigar worked for me. A solid smoke each and every time. 4 5 1
Robusto This is a very full bodied cigar with a very distinct smoke. I enjoyed it very much and I mostly smoke full bodied cigars. This is probably more for the long time aficionado than a beginner. 4 5 1
Robusto Starts out a little bit on the dry side but turns into a really flavorful smoke that lasts all the way to the end. Good matched up with a hoppy beer or a smooth bourbon. You will enjoy these. 3 5 1
Robusto 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. 2 5 1
Robusto A friends dad gave me one to try. It did not disappoint. Excellent cigar with plenty of flavor. Perfect for an evening on the deck with some meat on the grill. 4 5 1
Robusto This thing rates right up there with Padron! Deffinantly one for the ages. I don't think I have had a bad Oliva yet. 5 5 1
Robusto great cigar. One of top cigars on the market. Lovely chocolate and coffee flavor. The draw is wonderful. Just look at the ratings on cigar aficionado. It lists as one of the cigars of the year. 4 5 1
Robusto The entire Olivia v series are great cigars and the Melanio is quite possibly the best of the bunch. They have such a rich and full flavor yet it is light enough to enjoy at any time during the day. Perfect for any occasion! 4 5 1

Robusto This is actually only of my daily smokers! I love the tight construction of this cigar! Full of flavor and it just has a lot of different flavored you get from the filler and the wrapper it's a great mixture of all! 4 5 1
Robusto It is very mellow and flavorful cigar. The wrapper is tight and does not unravel as you smoke the cigar. The flavor stays consistently mellow from the first draw to final draw. 4 5 1
Robusto I have smoked this cigar on several occasions. It has a good bold flavor. I taste a mixture of pepper and coffee after the first few draws. The draw is excellent. It is a little pricey but worth it I am writing this to get free chips 5 5 1
Robusto I found it to be a bit strong but suttle. I truly enjoy my cigars with a glass of whiskey I find this to be an amazing combination. 3 5 1
Robusto No doubt one of my favorite cigars. Super smooth and has an amazing draw. I would love to buy a box if these. If you haven't tried it yet your missing out 5 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto Decent enough smoke. Not one of my favorites. I would share one with novice smokers. I have a couple in my visitors humidor. The ones I received didn't burn evenly and were wrapped tighter toward the band. 3 5 1
Robusto Nice stick. Good value for the money. Not too mild but very smooth. Try this you will not be disappointed. 4 5 1
Robusto I mean this cigar is got to be in the top 5 in the world I mean it doesn't get any better its just well balanced well rounded full of everything you would want in a cigar. plus they have the Maduro It just increases the richness and flavor I mean you just can't look for anything any better it might be something that is as good but not better. Oliva just don't put out a bad cigar period. 5 5 1
Robusto Good cigar I was really happy with it I enjoyed it's flavor while sitting on the back porch sipping on some good whiskey watching the sun go down 3 5 1
Robusto There's a reason this was Cigar Aficionados #1 Cigar of 2014. The ranking is true as this smoke is superb. Amazing draw well constructed with a taste that's top notch. A good try for any enthusiast. 4 5 1
Robusto This was honestly one of my favorite cigars I've smoked. It has a great draw that stays consistent throughout. The taste is smooth and I found that it doesn't leave the typical cigar taste in your mouth. This is a 5 star cigar that is highly recommended 5 5 1
Robusto Enjoyable smoke! The stick I had (did not come from JR) was a little tight to draw at first but opened up quickly and was smooth sailing from there! 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto The Oliva Serie V is a beauty. This is one cigar you have to have in your humidor. The appearance flavor and burn are everything you'd expect from an Oliva. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 3 5 1
Robusto Definitely one of the best sticks I've lit in its price range. A very smooth draw and an aroma that'll make your mouth water. 4 5 1
Robusto Great for special occasions. Cigar has great construction. Wrapper appears flawless and rustic although not quite as rustic as say a Padron. 4 5 1
Robusto Very good draw and constuction. Flavor was pretty straight forward throughout with little change from 1st third to last 3rd of cigar. Medium for sure. One of my favorite offerings from Oliva.. 4 5 1
Robusto I don't usually smoke fuller body cigars but this one is fantastic if you like Olivia you need to try it 4 5 1
Robusto It is my 2nd go to cigar after Drew Estates under crown. I usually go for the melanio maduro torpedo. Leathery and just gets smoother. Usually gets a little hot near the end though. 4 5 1
Robusto One of the best cigar I smoked in a long while. I only smoke this stick on special occasions whether it's with the fellas or a good fortune that came up. You cannot go wrong this thus cigar. 5 5 1
Robusto One of the few that truly can be savored !! Magnificent! A perfect balance with some sweet notes very nicely priced as well for the quality. 4 5 1
Robusto Perfect cigar for all occasions. The flavor is what make this smoke stand out. I would recommend to anyone. 5 5 1
Robusto This cigar is artfully constructed which produces a fantastic burn. It is smooth yet bold with flavors of coffee with just a hint of pepper. This cigar will surely please. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. The Sumatra wrapper is seamlessly adhered the filler combination of Habano and Jalapa blend is very smooth. This cigar while expertly constructed has been priced at an exceptionally reasonable price point. Any cigar aficiando would fall head over heals for this cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Just fantastic. Nice full bodied cigar. It was fantastic. A personal favorite. Can't get enough of them. 5 5 1
Robusto 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 5 5 1
Robusto Milder than the regular blend but nice leathery notes slight pepper and great tight ash. I would consider smoking these on a regular basis if the price was better. 4 5 1
Robusto A Very rich well balanced stick. From start to finish the flavors are consistent. I can see why it was picked as cigar of the year. BDefinately a must have in every humidor. 4 5 1
Robusto 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! 4 5 1
Robusto Excellent burn smooth flavor. I received a box of these smokes from a friend (had not smoked these previously ) and was pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to more great deals so I can pick up a couple more boxes 4 5 1
Robusto 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. The wrapper is well constructed with almost no visible veins. Very smooth. Tastes more on the medium side than full smooth thick smoke and a hint of spice. 4 5 1
Robusto This cigar was well worth the money. Easily one of the best cigars I've smoked this year. Perfect draw complex aromas. Outstanding!!! 4 5 1
Robusto Higher strength and good complexity from this box press. Earthy and floral tones are what I get here and this is certainly not a cigar that you want to smoke early in the day. Draw and construction are relatively good for a box press. Solid cigar. 4 5 1
Robusto Oliva is all you need to know. This particular cigar does not disappoint nice and full with a wrapper beyond compare. 5 5 1
Robusto This is one of my favorite cigars hands down. One of the few cigars I've bought a box of and plan on buying another. Definitely worth the cost IMHO. 4 5 1
Robusto 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. 5 5 1
Robusto Easily one of the greatest sticks I've had. They hit a home run when they introduced this stick. Do yourself a favor and try it out. 5 5 1
Robusto This a strong smoke. I am not sure that it is worthy of cigar of the year but it was a decent smoke 4 5 1
Robusto I'm a huge fan of these smokes while a few of them had some consitancy issues from the box I purchased overall they were 9/10 smokes for me. Great rich flavor and complex tasty notes of nut cocoa and some light coffee. Great when paired with a creamy vanilla root beer. 4 5 1
Robusto All around great smoke!! It's a cant go wrong pick.. Whatever size is a win! After smoking this I know why it was chosen as a top 5 cigar of the year... From the pre light draw down to the last puff solid smoke through and through 4 5 1
Robusto Was a very good smoke as usual from this maker. Just the right balance of spiciness and mellow. Lots of smoke the wife actuall thought th
